This Detailed Life - THE MAGAZINE!

I've been working on a rather exciting project in secret. I wanted to make sure I can do it justice and create something people will love. I think I'm getting there!

I have been missing Dear Photographer magazine since it sadly closed last year, so I decided to create my own publication with a similar approach - lots of gorgeous photos taking the limelight with a different theme for each issue.

I've recruited some talented souls to help me get this off the ground, touched base with Adri de la Cruz (DP's founder) and made sure those lovely and very busy Phlock ladies didn't have a mag in the pipeline. It seems I'm not stepping on any toes and I have everyone's support so here goes! This Detailed Life magazine is born.

Up until now This Detailed Life has been my Instagram hub to share detail photos. It's not just about close-up details. To me and others it has always been about capturing the details of life in the sense of the moments that happen; the emotions, the stories, etc.... and that's what I want to bring to the magazine.

TDL magazine is a professional photography magazine to showcase artwork by photographers around the world, to educate and inform, and above all to inspire.

The first theme will be Quarantine. We want to share all of the amazing art that photographers have been creating during lockdown. We've selected a few simple categories to break things down and to guide submissions. I've created some mock-ups of how it might look - this could all change but it gives an idea of what we're trying to do with this. It will be available to buy in print, hopefully in June but we'll see how many submissions we end up with as it may take time to collate everything :)

Want to be published? Send us your images now!!! We're looking for photos to feature in each of the categories as well as article proposals. See the details below on all our categories and regular features and send us what you've been working on during the last couple of months. We want to see your projects, your lockdown life, what you've been baking, how you're dealing with isolation, anything creative you've been trying out in your downtime.... share away and don't be shy!

Each issue will have a gallery for every category with featured artists being credited of course. There will be an artist index at the back so you can find your favourite photographers easily.

Regular categories will be:

DETAILS - the details that tell the story.

PROJECTS - whatever you're working on - 365, self portraits, project 52, anything - send us five images and a brief outline and we might feature one or all of your images.

LIGHT RELIEF - your funnies. Anything goes, whatever tickled you when you snapped an image whether it was on purpose or a happy and hilarious accident. Make us giggle!

This issue's categories are:

THE KITCHEN - where many of us have retreated to create something other than photos - show us what you've been cooking, the action, the ingredients, the final product or just everyone hanging out in the heart of the home.
