05/07/15 ATTENTION PHOTOGRAPHERS!!! LOOKING FOR PHOTOS FOR BOOK ON THE SHORT-TAIL PYTHONS

REQUEST FOR PHOTOS!

Email all images and questions about photos and any comments regarding the descriptions below to Dave at: vpi@beecreek.net

From Dave and Tracy Barker

We now invite photographers with suitable photos of python species to submit them to us for consideration to publish in one of our books.

The book is titled The Short-tail Pythons: Their History, Natural History, Care and Breeding [aka “the blood python book.”]

This book is similar to the ball python book we did several years ago, and we are looking for pictures of unusual snakes as well as snakes with normal appearances.  we are starting to look for good images.

1) Submitted images should be well-exposed and in sharp focus.  We are most interested in images of the full-body, not close-up pictures of the face. Background can be in a light colored tub or clean surface so that images can be easily cut out of background. Please no snakes in flowers, shrubs, on front lawns etc!

2) You can send submissions as small email-sized photos attached to emails for our inspection and we can get back with you about which one we want to publish.

3) Photos that we will publish will need to be at least 1800 pixels wide, and 3000 pixels is better. Photo should be in JPEG format saved with no compression (that makes the saved files bigger.)

4) You may only submit images that are yours. All photographers submitting images will be acknowledged in the book, whether or not their photos are published. If we publish your images, we’ll send you a copy of the book when it’s released.

5) ***************We are interested in excellent photography, so no matter what species you have, —if it’s a great photo, please send it…**************

6) Email all images to Dave at: vpi@beecreek.net
