Photography Guidelines

Alaska Beyond Magazine Photography focus and topics
As Alaska Airlines’ monthly, complimentary in-flight magazine, we are a travel, business and lifestyle publication. Our photographic interests lie specifically in places within Alaska Airlines’ route system. The airline’s territory is primarily Alaska and the West. Other destinations include: Miami, Orlando, Washington DC, New York, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, Vancouver BC, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Hawaii and locations in Mexico— more details on locations can be found in the route map located in the back section of Alaska Beyond Magazine. Our subjects cover a variety of topics, such as: nature, sports/adventure, travel, arts and entertainment, lifestyle, and business. The images should offer a sense of location and possess sharp, clean, bright color, and thoughtful composition.
