COREY MOSTLY SHOOTS VIDEO THESE DAYS, BUT HE’S ALSO SHOT AROUND 100 MAGAZINE COVERS IN HIS CAREER…
So, what makes a great magazine cover?
Of course, it has to be a great picture, a great moment that encapsulates a story, but a cover also, let’s be honest, is the sales tool, it’s the ad. Those ads are designed to stop you and convince you to pick the magazine up. The difference between a good frame and a great frame is subjective. I like to talk about the ‘collective subjective’; I can show a picture to my mother and she’s happy with everything that I shoot, but when you show it to
everybody and everybody agrees it’s a great photograph, that’s the collective subjective, and that’s the stamp of approval on a great photograph, or on a great video.
