We do receive many requests from Non-Profit Organizations, asking us to donate images for use in various worthwhile conservation causes. With respect, wildlife images are very costly to produce; there is the expense of travel, boat hire, rent, specialized photographic equipment, computers, software, and time and there are no guarantees that wildlife will behave for the camera on any given day. Many photographers would probably love to donate images to assist worthy projects but rely on image licensing to provide an income to live and pay for business expenses. Additionally, over the years, photography costs have increased but the revenue from photos has decreased.
Oceanwide Images, as an agent for our contributing wildlife photographers, do not have the authority to donate images free of charge, no matter how important the project.
We do however want to contribute to the awareness of conservation issues and we do have the authority to offer discounted educational Image Licensing fees to assist organizations with worthy conservation campaigns.
