Thank you for your interest in Portraito Magazine.

We are looking to create a community of portrait photographers that share their work and knowledge with each other. We have designed the magazine such that it is both a photo book and a community forum.

For these reasons we encourage all submitters to send us more than just their portraits. When submitting, we are open to receiving:

  • Portrait photos (required)
  • A quote or short bio
  • Technical details and behind the scenes

Please send your submissions to

Please read our guidelines below.

Photo Guidelines

Although our only rule is that it is a portrait, to better your chances of approval, please use our Instagram pinned inspiration highlights to get an idea of what we are looking for. For colored portraits, see here. For black & white, see here.

We seek to promote and showcase the photographer's skills and style. The photos you submit do not have to be a series. In fact, the more diverse the photos are, the better the chances that we will find something that fits our publication's vision.

  • When submitting please follow the guidelines outlined on this page. Upon reviewing submissions, Portraito Magazine reserves the rights to accept or deny any submission. You will receive a rejection or approval decision, reviewed in the order the submission was received. All submissions will be reviewed.
  • All images must be retouched and edited.
  • Please Note: Full team credits MUST be included. Failure to include full names of a team member will result in cancelation of the submission and any fees paid will not be reimbursed. You may optionally include Instagram tags in the submission section so we can tag you on social media! We won’t be held accountable for any missing or misspelled credit. Be sure to double-check that all persons involved in the submission are included in the credits, and their names are spelled correctly.
  • If you are not the photographer, please confirm and present to us the permission/release form from the photographer that owns the copyright to the images.
  • When you share your published portraits, feel free to use the following hashtags: @portraitomag #portraitomag
