|NEWSLETTER - September 2006|
|High res image hosting is something we have been working on at Photographers Direct for some time now and we hope to have a solution up and running before too long. This will allow more rapid delivery of high res images when deadlines are tight and will also allow our photographers to deliver images to clients even when they are on assignment in far flung corners of the globe. Watch this space!
Some recent examples of 'impossible to find' images include:
- Mozambicans celebrating festivals
- World's Largest Egg
- Medellin poetry festival in Colombia
So, if you are having trouble finding images, why not give it a try?
