Credits: Names

In text, refer to homeowners by their first names after first reference. For architects, designers, and other professionals, after first reference use last name only—unless they are also the homeowners!

BH&G: Homeowner and subject, use first names on second reference. Professionals use last name on second reference.  (Changed 7/5/2017)

The first mention in text, captions, and sidebars should identify homeowners and professionals with their first and last names.

In general, don’t use last names for minors; last names may be implied, however, if children are part of a family featured in a story. If using a minor’s last name is important to a story (a 14-year-old recipe-contest winner, for example), verify that the minor’s guardians have signed the proper release form(s).

Sometimes a field editor’s contribution to a story extends beyond the routine functions we have come to expect. In those cases, a special byline may be appropriate. At the editor’s discretion, one of the following bylines may be used.

Option 1
The standard “field editor” credit is used when:
The field editor found the location and made arrangements for a photo shoot.
The field editor performs normal prop shopping/photo styling functions.
The field editor provides the editor with routing manuscript notes and a source list.
(A person can be credited as a field editor if he/she has completed all the above functions; he/she may or may not be listed on the masthead.)
Field editor: Mindy Pantiel

Option 2
A “produced by” credit may be used when:
The field editor contributed significantly to the development of the story concept and its execution without an editorial or art presence.
The field editor was actively involved in the identification and acquisition of products or materials used in a shoot (excluding prop shopping).
Produced by Mindy Pantiel

Option 3
A “by” credit may be used when:
In addition to performing the usual functions, the field editor writes a finished manuscript that the editor judges to be of publishable quality (except for routine editing needs).
By Mindy Pantiel

Option 4
A “written and produced by” credit may be used when:
All of the elements in Option 2 and Option 3 are met.
Written and produced by Mindy Pantiel

Sometimes a field editor’s contribution to a story is less than the routine functions we have come to expect. In those cases, at the editor’s discretion, the byline “contributing field editor” may be used.

Any non-field editor who does at least one of the duties normally completed by a field editor may be listed as “contributing field editor.”

Credits: Field Editors

Field editors are always credited with first-use material. Field editors may be credited with pickup materials, but it is not required. In general, credit field editors with pickup materials if a full location if used; do not credit if only a portion of the location is used in a compilation story.
