Thank you so much for your interest in submitting your beautiful work to Belle Lumière.  We are incredibly honored that you thought of us and cannot wait to review your submission.  Here you will find information on submitting both features and educational posts to our journal, and submissions to our magazine.

Please note we are a film exclusive publication and will only accept 100% film submissions, no exceptions.  However, we do accept every types of niche!  If you are a digital photographer you might want to check out Lemonade and Lenses, our sister magazine, if you are looking to submit your work.

In addition to our magazine and journal features we also pick one to two images a week to share as our “weekly film fav” on our social media accounts.  So be sure to hashtag your film images with #BelleLumiere for a chance to have your image shared!  Don’t forget to include your gear along with your image, as well as your lab.


We are always on the lookout for beautiful film sessions of any niche for our Journal.  Currently our Journal is non-exclusive, which means we will accept submissions that have been featured elsewhere and you can resubmit sessions that we feature, with proper time in-between.  We try very hard to keep consistent with not only the work we feature but also the style.  Please browse through our Journal a little bit before submitting to see if your session would be a good fit.


We truly believe that having a supportive community which helps and encourages others is the foundation for a better and stronger industry and the key to keeping film alive.  If you feel like you have something to share with the community, we would love to hear from you!  This could be anything from reviews on cameras or film, tips and tricks for shooting film, or pretty much anything that involves film and learning.  Feel free to email us directly if you have something to share!


Currently we are accepting submissions for our future volumes of Belle Lumière.  For our magazine, we are looking for those special sessions that do an amazing job of representing the beauty film can capture.  Since we are not niche specific, we will review any type of session and welcome styled, portrait, and lifestyle shoots, especially those with lots of details.  Submissions will be accepted until all six spots are filled.
