photographers in the region when Hurricane Katrina hit.
We try to maintain a high resolution copy of all of the images you see
on this site. While you may see a cut and paste image on
another site like one that you have found here, you will not find the high number
of consistently high quality images that you see here. Many agencies offer
lower quality, lower resolution, lower dynamic range, cut and paste images. We do
We carefully screen and edit each image we obtain, individually, to ensure we present a not
only a compelling image, but one of high technical quality for web
display, print, or you publishing needs as well.
