Handout Photographers

Photography is a major pillar of Different Class!

It creates a strong foundation and distinct feel that we strive for throughout the magazine, the website and all our social channels.

We put a lot of value in the quality and originality of the images and, by means of a more autonomous approach, aim to tell a story through every series.

Below you can find an overview of all upcoming articles, videos and shoots for Different Class. Do you see an assignment you like? Please check the due date (= deadline) before you contact Astrid! Does it fit in your schedule? Great, you can reach her at astrid@differentclass.be! We like to work ahead so don't wait too long before deciding ;-) <3


Make sure we have photos of the subjects in both compositions!!

All files should have the same size and in jpeg format.

  • 300 dpi for magazine (CMYK)
  • 72 dpi for online use (RGB)

While the artist is, of course, the main focus of the shoot, make sure to make an autonomous series by including still-life shots too. So try to go beyond strictly portraits and include other things like environment, clothes, location,... in your shoot or video.

Action and more natural-looking shots of your subject often work better. Please stay away from posed or typical ‘band photography'.

Something to keep in mind: when you're shooting in a dark environment, it might be better to take some photos in daylight too (in front of the museum or in the neighbourhood for example).

  • short, unedited (iPhone) videos while the interview happens or scenes apart from the shoot. This can be anything and doesn't need much of preparation or editing!
  • 1 'station call' for Different Class with the subject saying: 'Hi, I'm ...(name) I'm playing a show/I have an exhibition on ... (date) at ...(place) and it's free for Different Class members! Come join us! 
  • In case of a new master interview/shoot 1 'station call' for Different Class with the subject saying: 'Hi, I'm ...(name) and I just walked through ... (name exhibition). Go discover it yourself from ... (date) at ...(place) because it's free for Different Class members!

Our online team can use them to make the feature more interesting and alive on social media.


We can use as many photos as you like to send, but we'll need at least 6 to 8 to make a nice story, but no more than 30!


By sending your files and accepting our payments you grant us permission to use your images and video on all channels (online and offline); magazines, socials, website, ... + on your own channels ONLY.

If the partner wishes to publish your photos on their channels, we negotiate with them and you'll get an additional fee. If the subjects wants to use the image, you are free to make an additional deal.


We would appreciate it if the publication on your own channels happens after we have published them on the website and our socials. :-)

payment details

€ 125 per shoot

You can work with either a voluntary payment or invoice but you have to pick one and use this consistently during the whole year. That means you cannot switch from one to the other during the year, only on 1 Jan the year after.

voluntary payment

Sander will send you a SignRequest form to complete your payment in the weeks after your shoot. Astrid is not involved in the payments so Sander is the one to talk to about it! Please note: Sander is working 1 day/week so bear in mind it can take a couple of weeks before finalising.


If you prefer to make an invoice, use these details on your invoice:
