I am the President of the SunLight Time Foundation and as of January 2016, I am Chairman of the Board of the International League of Conservation Photographers (www.iLCP.com). I have a deep respect for the craft of photography. I work hard to capture all my images in the camera on site and use Lightroom to remove the dust spots that plague photographers of the digital age. I also crop and make (usually) small amounts of color and light adjustments. I have recently begun to play with Black and White - which of course is done in Lightroom. My bag of tricks includes a polarizer, 3 graduated neutral density filters, an 8 stop neutral density filter and some pretty orange gels when i use an off camera flash.
I spend a large part of my days working to help photographers find a way through the "new economy" in a way that allows them to get paid for their work. Content doesn't happen without the content creators, so asking for photographers to give images away for free - even for "a good cause" is disrespectful. Be creative! Like the photographers!
If you're a non-profit, educational outlet or someone working on a conservation issue and you need images, please look at www.ilcp.com there is a beautiful library of images availible there at a very low cost to causes that fit the parameters.
