Photographers Contribute to 

Cultural Photo Documentaries

We are inviting professional photojournalists to share their experiences. All content will be put together in a similar format. Native Planet and its affiliate websites receive over 50.000 visitors per month. Our goal is to sensitize and inspire people. We welcome new contributors. You need to send us 5 to 10 photos per subject and a short description (please view current documentaries for guidelines). From these pages we will offer a link to your own website and we will post your profile under our photographers menu. Visitors often ask for photos from countries or cultures we have not documented. We hope to create the most complete archive available online and promote the work of leading photojournalists from around the world.

Native Planet is a Non-Profit Organization. Neither Native Planet nor Jean-Philippe Soule will resell rights to your photos. Interested parties will be able to contact you directly. Contributors agree that all photos and text submitted to us can be used by Native Planet and/or Jean-Philippe Soule for Online Educational Purposes only. Credits and links will accompany all photos and text.

Native Planet and Jean-Philippe Soule reserve the right to refuse contributions if the subject matter or quality is not up to their standards. They also reserve the rights to remove any contribution at their own discretion.

Interested Photographers should email a brief initial query (if possible a link to their own website or other sites featuring their work). Do not send photos with your initial email (all emails with unsolicited photo attachment are deleted without being opened). The subsequent proposal should include photographer's background, sample photography (ideally three subjects that do not already appear on this site), a short profile.
After reviewing your proposal, we contact you and tell you how to send the photos (180 x 270 pixels saved as JPEG quality 6).

We are looking forward to your participation.
Please email us and be sure to write "query for Cultural Photo Documentaries" in your subject line.
