Photo Request-- Urgent deadline!

This Call covers an impressive variety of subjects, all needed by a publisher for book covers.Book covers are usually vertical, so please supply Portrait format images.You may have suitable images already on the site which fit the bill, so please just add the relevant code keyword to them. Or you may have them in your portfolio. I hope so, because there’s very little time to go out and take these. Surprise me!
