An elephant photo required

    I had no idea where to post this - I imagine not too many requests like this come about.

    I'm an aspiring pencil artist, currently completing a series of animal drawings to be put to print. Does anyone know how I'd go about obtaining a good quality photo of an elephant for commercial use?

    I take all my own photos but it's the only one I'm missing. If anyone here has one and is willing to share, that'd be wonderful. I would, of course, credit the photographer accordingly for the subject matter in publishing the drawing and print.

    Here's my site if you're interested: www.alexflemingart.com.

    Thanks for your time!

    No doubt a Google image search would be of help.

    However, be careful of copying photographs. iirc there are copyright issues and people have come to grief before now.

    Thanks. The image rights thing is a minefield I never want to step on, my cousin fell foul of all that once, so I'd never do anything without permission. That's why I came here, really, just to see if anyone were willing.

    try a picture library - that is what they are there for!

    Forgive my ignorance - what's a picture library? Somewhere on the net with stock images?

    I've just done exactly what you said and there are plenty. Thanks! (My only experience of stock images was years ago - very limited in number and usually with a watermark of some kind.)

    The watermark is there to try and stop you helping yourself, without payment.
