Rather than shoot our own photos or get someone to do this as has been suggested. Why not just go to flickr and in the spirit of what we are doing look for some good images be that blonde, redhaired and even God forbid bald!  I am happy to ask the flickr users for permission for this image to be used in an OSM media pack? With attribution of course;))

As an example I typed "GPS and map" and immediately found this image


I am happy to put together a selection of images from flickr users (with permission from the users) for your comments, approval or otherwise.

Let me know. I have put together a fair few media information packs in my time so I would ensure that the image quality etc was sufficiently good for each media type i.e web, print etc.

What perhaps would be good for OSM Foundation members and contributors to do themselves would be to shoot, contribute any video material that they may have or want to take so that an edited video can be put up on vimeo of a "mapathon" day edited specifically for usage/additional editing by broadcast media.

Again happy to help on this.
