Local photographer Alisha Audrey is on cloud 9 after being published in PhotoVogue this week,
The shot was taken during a portrait session in Havana.
To be clear, the website is not Vogue Magazine. but a global creative network that Vogue hosts online for photographers.
"PhotoVogue curates a pool of incredible image makers from around the world to create an international database of the most interesting voices in contemporary photography," the website explains. "We discover, nurture, and advance the careers of emerging and unrepresented artists while keeping a tight relationship with the mid-career artists that grew within the platform by giving them visibility and including them in different activities, propelling and advancing their careers."
You can submit up to two photos a week which undergo review and must be approved.
"I’ve been submitting photos for weeks hoping to be approved and this photo was the first one for me - I cried and couldn’t believe it actually happened," she told BayToday.
Her photo was published January 23.
"This is my second time being published. I was also featured in Lensational Magazine in October for a Halloween shot I took for a 30-day Halloween photo series I hosted. This is a major accomplishment for me and has given me more confidence as a creative."
Soon PhotoVogue will also accept submissions from video makers, digital artists, and illustrators—creating a new generation of multimedia contributors.
