If You Want to Make Great Images, Look to the Pros

Those of us who are serious about photography are always looking for new ideas. Sometimes that means spending countless hours shooting, editing, re-shooting and re-editing images until we get what we want.

It’s also important to look at the works of other photographers to see what they’re doing and to get more ideas.

Personally, I think Rolling Stone magazine offers some of the best photographic work on the market. The cover shots on this magazine can be spotted across a packed bookstore and the photos that accompany articles are amazing.

The magazine started in 1967 in San Francisco by Jann Wenner who is still its editor and publisher and music critic Ralph J. Gleason. Rolling Stone’s contributing and staff photographers include Annie Leibovitz, Robert Altman and Mark Seliger to name just a few.

Fortunately, Rolling Stone offers a look at every magazine cover from 1967 to present on its Website.
You owe it to yourself to take some time and look through the covers. I guarantee that after spending a few minutes, you’ll have hundreds of ideas for your next photo shoot.

Good luck and keep shooting!
