Request A Review/Comp Version of Image #04106

I will be in Antarctica from Dec 26 2009 through January 26 2010 and thus will not be able to respond personally, as I usually do, to requests for comps. My assistant will be filling in for me during my absence. Please contact my office by phone at (760) 707-7153 to describe specifically how you would like to use the image in your project. Don't forget to provide your phone number and email address if you leave a message. Please note that requesting and receiving a comp image does not grant you permission to publish the image. If, upon receiving the comp, you wish to move foward with publishing the image as part of your project, you must speak with Phillip Colla at (760) 707-7153 to discuss licensing the image and obtain permission to use it. She can provide licensing permission and I will followup with invoice and written license authorization upon my return on January 26, 2010. Thank you.

If you are a bona fide photo buyer/researcher interested in licensing our images and wish to receive one or more review images ("comps") by email, you may do so by completing this form.  You may also request a comp of any of our images by contacting us directly by email or phone.
