I pitch topical photoessays to places that run photo essays or places that certainly could.
  1. Rejected—Too hard to produce
  2. Ignored—Editor didn't get back to me before the subject died
  3. Rejected—Editor seemed to think I wouldn't be able to pull the project off
  4. Rejected—No budget for photography
  5. Rejected—No reason given
  6. Rejected—No plans to run photos without significant textual elements
  7. Rescinded—Subject was forcibly committed to a mental institution before editor could accept or reject
  8. Deferred—Editor asked to move this project to October.
  9. Ignored—Editor from 8 ignored my second pitch
  10. Accepted—Half-rate offered because of new relationship
