FAQ

About KHUSELA

How often do you publish a story and how can I read them?

Our aim is to publish and email an inspirational travel photo story at least twice a month directly to our readers across the globe. You can either subscribe to our newsletter or visit our website.

How much does it cost to subscribe?

It’s free to subscribe to our newsletter and you can unsubscribe from this service at any point.

What charity do you support and how can I make a donation?

We support a well deserving charity, Africa Foundation. Our aim is to raise £10,000 to build a classroom in an under-resourced school in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. We will raise money on this website through JustGiving and 10% of all photo sales will go to this charity.

How do I get in touch?

The easiest and only way to get in touch is via the contact us form.

 

Buying Images or Photo Stories

Are your images and photo stories for sale?

Only images and photo stories featured on the ‘Buy Images’ page are for sale. They can be bought as single images or as a set and are available for editorial or commercial projects only. Cost will be considered on a case-by-case basis and are based on how you plan to use the image, size, timeframe etc. Please contact us for more information and pricing.

 

Contributors

I’m a photographer, how can I contribute?

If you would like to publish your work on KHUSELA then please contact us with a link to a gallery of your images and a short description of your photo story. We will review your submission and once you have been accepted as a contributor we will send you a copy of our submission guidelines and ask you to send us your initial submission.

What travel photo stories are you looking for?

We are looking for creative and inspirational travel photo stories. We wish to make a powerful and emotional connection to our viewers, so please keep that in mind when writing and choosing your photos.

How many words should my story be and how many photos can I submit?

Your story should be no longer than 400 words. We wish to keep the stories short for our readers not to spend too much time reading, but also spend time to be inspired by your travel photos. You can submit up to 20 photos, but only seven to ten carefully selected photos will run with your story. The full gallery will be available from your portfolio page.

What image formats can I submit?

We only accept digital images shot with high-end cameras with pro lenses and digital images scanned on a drum scanner. We do not accept images shot using digital compact or bridge cameras.

Would you have exclusive rights to my text and images?

No, we are here simply to share your work and to give you as much exposure as possible.

What would my earnings be from sales?

We will always try and contact you first when someone shows interested in your story or photos. You set the price and we will confirm with the buyer. You will receive 60% of your sales, and a further 10% will go to charity. We are not an image library so please don’t expect big sales. It is something we might consider in future.

What if someone contact me directly from your website to buy images?

Since we are the original point of contact, we would expect and appreciate it if you could let us know of any contact through our website. We would like to build a long standing relationship with our photographers.

Will I need to sign a contract?

Yes, but only to give us permission to publish and sell your work.

How long will it take you to review my submission?

Our goal is to review your work in one to four weeks, but this may vary depending on our workload.
