Subject: Marine Mammal Photos for Academic Press/Elsevier Guide
Dear Colleagues,
   Marc Webber, Bob Pitman, and I are preparing a comprehensive marine mammal 
identification guide, which will include detailed species accounts, multiple 
illustrations, illustrated keys, and a large collection of full-color photos.  
 We are aiming to produce the most comprehensive and authoritative 
identification guide to marine mammals ever published.   It will be published in late 
2007 by Academic Press/Elsevier.
   We are now making our final photo selections and are trying to tie-up a 
few loose ends.   We are still missing good photos of the following:   Baikal 
seal, Caspian seal, ringed seal, harp seal, hooded seal, bearded seal, ribbon 
seal, largha seal, Mediterranean monk seal, Galapagos fur seal, Juan Fernandez 
fur seal, Guadalupe fur seal, and New Zealand sea lion.
   Unfortunately, we cannot pay photographers for use of photos.   There is 
no budget for this.   However, if we use your photos, we may be able to offer 
you a free copy of the book (which we expect to cost about US$50).   This would 
be for one-time use, and there would be no restrictions on further use by the 
   We would need good quality slides or digital images (the highest possible 
resolution).   Digital images should be sent to Marc Webber (who is 
coordinating photos for that group):

   I appreciate your help with this request.
