Directory of Travel Publication Pay Rates for Writing and Photography

Lets make some money folks!

This is a crowdsourced travel publisher directory including rates of pay for writing and photography and contact information.

A submission form is at the bottom of the page. Please contribute what you know if you plan to use the contributions of others. It literally only takes about two minutes.

For now, this directory is made from a Google Spreadsheet embedded in a blog post. That means the directory will not display well on mobile devices. It is best viewed on large screen using Google Chrome. I am working on a better format for the future and appreciate your patience.

If you find faulty information in this spreadsheet, please comment, contact me here, or email me at xpatmatt (at) gmail (dot) com.

**There is more information than you can see in this table. Scroll right to see more columns, such as the source of the information.

Every week we hand-pick the best deals from around the web and deliver you up to 80% off your favorite brands like Patagonia, North Face, and Arc'teryx

  1. Matt, this is an invaluable service you are doing. I wanted yo thank you. My outdoor adventure has been Hunting and fishing magazines and my travel writing has been mostly for television. I’m not currently working on either of these gigs, and looking fornew avenues. How does a person access your directory ? I was a little confused by that. And I will certainly add any as I come by them!
    Thanks again,
    Robin, Atlanta, Georgia

    • Hi Robin,

      I’m glad you appreciate this. The directory is available for anyone to view in on this page.

      There may be some technical problems because it is an embedded Google Document (I will change that in the future, this is just V1).

      Can you not see it above?

      If not, I’d suggest trying a different browser or device.

      If you have any more problems, please email me with information about which browser and device you are using so I can look into it.


  2. You have done such a great job! I have always worked for Italian travel magazine and I do not think they are interesting for your research, but thank you for sharing this. Very eye-opener.

  3. Matt. I applaud your energy and passion for starting this project! I would like to contribute some valuable advice for your targeted audience and would be interested in helping you get sponsors, advertisers and publish this resource under my imprint (circa 1978) New World Press Books. I own four book clubs and have built up a nice publishing empire. To learn more and to see if we are a good fit into your vision, Please google me.

    I admire talent and guts and you have both. Should you wish to have a chat this week, Leave your cell# or call 631.9243888 Monday after 3pm or Tuesday after 5 pm est. Works for me. Best Wishes, ASL/The Copyologist(r)

  4. Thanks Matt for this gem.
    I hope Indians like me get opportunities to write in international pubs like these.
    Btw, do drop in and write a word or two on my blog.

  5. Wow! Thanks for this Matt. And a big thanks to Meg Jerrard from for sharing it with me. Our travel related blog is only just coming online but we have a more established health and fitness site and this sheet will at least give us a starting point for finding people willing to pay for our articles.
