Editorial photography is defined as work which is journalistic or educational in nature. This includes content appearing in magazines and newspapers that is separate from the paid advertising. There is also advertising that is made to look like editorial content known as advertorial. Both newspapers and magazines can be divided up into one of two categories either trade or consumer. Trade publications are targeted to a specific audience while consumer publications are geared toward the general public. Textbooks and encyclopedias fall into the education category. Of course editorial is not limited to print and can published on-line, or distributed on electronic media.
