General Guidelines

Photographs are purchased as the need arises to accompany specific text.

We employ a photo researcher who works with stock agencies and outside vendors.

Photos are also purchased as part of a manuscript in the form of a photo essay.

Photo essays consist of approximately 5-8 images that collectively tell a story. Brief captions should be supplied.

Highlights generally purchases all rights to a photograph.

The price varies according to the size of the photograph used.

We accept photographs as 35mm slides or larger transparencies, high quality prints, and in digital format at 300 dpi or greater.

When submitting digital images, please provide a hard copy print and the high resolution file on disk.

Photos of children must be accompanied by a model release.

In offering your work, please supply a list of the subjects you have on file.
