  • Policy for Providing Photographs for Free | Tony Wu
    Worthy Causes With Images Most of us do contribute photographs sometimes more to support certain causes In many cases we may have participated directly in projects that we support with images or we may have a pre existing personal relationship with key people involved with the efforts concerned In other words each of us can and does provide images without compensation on a selective basis We Have Time Constraints Making a leap from such selective support to responding positively to every request we get for free photographs however is impractical if for no other reason than the substantial amount of time required to respond to requests exchange correspondence prepare and send files and then follow up to find out how our images were used and what objectives if any were achieved It takes a lot of time to respond to requests and time is always in short supply Pleas of We Have No Money Are Often Difficult to Fathom The primary rationale provided in nearly all requests for free photographs is budgetary constraint meaning that the requestor pleads a lack of funds Such requests frequently originate from organisations with a lot of cash on hand whether they be publicly listed companies government or quasi government agencies or even NGOs Often it is a simple matter of taking a look at a public filing or other similar disclosure document to see that the entity concerned has access to significant funding certainly more than enough to pay photographers a reasonable fee should they choose to do so To make matters worse it is apparent that all too often of all the parties involved in a project or particular effort photographers are the only ones being asked to work for free Everyone else gets paid Given considerations like this you can perhaps understand why we frequently feel slighted when we are told that We have no money Such claims can come across as a cynical ploy intended to take advantage of gullible individuals We Have Real Budget Constraints With some exceptions photography is not a highly remunerative profession We have chosen this path in large part due to the passion we have for visual communication visual art and the subject matters in which we specialise The substantial increase in photographs available via the internet in recent years coupled with reduced budgets of many photo buyers means that our already meager incomes have come under additional strain Moreover being a professional photographer involves significant monetary investment Our profession is by nature equipment intensive We need to buy cameras lenses computers software storage devices and more on a regular basis Things break and need to be repaired We need back ups of all our data as one ill placed cup of coffee could literally erase years of work For all of us investment in essential hardware and software entails thousands of dollars a year as we need to stay current with new technology and best practices In addition travel is a big part of many

  • Photographing Humpback Whales in Tonga 2014
    want to keep going with the calf count or not On the one hand though I ve demonstrated the two points I referred to above beyond reasonable doubt the numbers and patterns that have emerged are interesting in themselves For instance it certainly seems that there are good years and less good years in terms of how many baby whales show up around Vava u There are also other possible patterns emerging from my data about the ratio of female to male calves the ratio of mother calf pairs accompanied by escorts etc And then there is super mommy the female humpback that I ve confirmed with six calves during the period 1998 to 2013 with the help of several people who have been kind enough to contribute sightings photos and information leads Kirsty Bowe Nonie Silver Karen Stone Michele Hall Claudia Jocher It would be fantastic to document her with more calves in coming seasons On the other hand collecting backing up processing and assembling all the photos and other data is a lot of work We re talking hundreds of hours for a given season Painful For the sceptics out there absolute proof that I have friends The sign says so In any event one thing I really look forward to each season is having the opportunity to spend quality time with friends It s nice being in the South Pacific with minimal access to internet and no background noise from incessant yammering on TV Instead of being overwhelmed with emails and depressing world news I get to enjoy moments like having dinner with my friend Moses which is let s just say an experience OK we stacked a few extra plates in front of him for effect Or spending time with visiting friends no matter how puerile or dorky Friend someone who makes me feel mature and sophisticated by comparison There are also those priceless peaceful moments ones that can t be conveyed in words like this sunset at Mounu Island in the photo are Allan who hates having his photo taken and Otto who loves having his photo taken example 1 example 2 Sunset at Mounu Island Vava u Tonga Speaking of Mounu if you re thinking about planning a last minute excursion to Tonga there are some bungalows available in mid September Besides being a great place to be based for whale watching the private island is perfect for chilling out and getting away from it all Plus you can take photos of Otto and or annoy Allan by pointing a camera in his general direction Both pastimes are fun though one entails a measure of personal risk so it pays to be able to run quickly Equipment wise I m taking both my Canon and Nikon systems like I did last year Canon 5D Mark III bodies in Zillion housings and a D800 in a Nauticam housing both with Pro One domes Canon to the left Nikon to the right There are pros and

  • Humpback Whales in Tonga 2014 | Part 1
    It s challenge enough keeping up with whales without a crazy cough making it impossible to breathe so I was naturally concerned 100 days would have taken me through the entire humpback season So I decided that I would recover in less than a month yes I know that sounds silly This is the third calf I ID ed on my first day out on the water this season a little girl During my first day on the water which was for fun and checking gear I coughed up a storm while swimming I went to sleep that night dreading the rest of the season but for some reason when I woke up the next morning the irritating tickling urge to cough that had plagued me for almost a month had disappeared Vanished Gone Poof Perhaps it was the fact that I had ID ed three humpback whale calves on that day or perhaps my body had just responded to my ludicrous insistence on recovering before my friends showed up but as of that day I was symptom free whooping for joy Anyway as I referred to in my post before departing for Tonga I wasn t sure whether I d keep track of calf encounters this season as it s a lot of work and I ve already proven the points I set out to clarify But when we encountered calf after calf starting less than an hour of hitting the water it was almost as if the whales were saying Hey don t be lazy You d better keep counting Cetaceans can be unrelenting taskmasters As of now with three days on the water I have four calf IDs Three of them I ve confirmed as females the fourth I couldn t discern So as in all past seasons during which I ve kept careful records female babies are in the lead There are nine humpback whales in this photo The tenth is outside of this frame I ve also seen two heat runs a bunch of boys competing for a female whale The first was big Really big It was overcast and the water murky so it was difficult to keep track of how many whales there were It wasn t until I had reviewed photos that I was able to determine that there were at least ten whales involved Ten The day after the big heat run I watched another smaller one develop over time first seeing lots of whales spread over a wide area breaching tail slapping moving in pairs etc We were able to figure out the general direction of movement and got lucky picking the whales that we thought would be the center of attention The first time I dropped in to take a look I could see that the pair we had chosen was a lovey dovey male and female I hoped the other whales in the area would leave the two alone so we might have some quality time with the
