Many journalists I talk to want to have pictures of people doing 
something - someone with a GPS in a forest. Ideally a blonde ;-)

We should have enough photographers in our ranks to do a "photo party", 
or perhaps one per country (not required for the blonde on a forest 
path, but as soon as signs come into view...)

But yes, failing the self-made stuff, a paid professional doing a few 
shots that we can then use over and over would not be too bad.
