How not to curry an editor's favor
I possible, could I be sent a photo submissions list for this years magazines?
1. If you want to establish a working relationship with an editor, include that individual's name in the e-mail.
2. If you want to make a good first impression, use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation in the e-mail.
3. If you want to submit photographs to a publication, provide proof that your work is worthy of and appropriate for consideration by providing a URL, a list of publications that used your images and/or a list of training and awards.
Then again, how would you react to such an e-mail if you worked as a magazine editor? I'm curious.
