A word about our photographs

Please do not grab photos from the magazine to use on other websites or personal pages. They are the property of GivingCity Austin and the Austin Community Foundation.

We contract with local photographers for those images. The contracts specify that photographers not share those images with anyone. In fact, even the photographers are not allowed to put the photographs on their own sites until 90 days after we publish the magazine.

Your use of the photographs undermines and diminishes the integrity of our content. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to provide free personal photographs for the subjects of our stories. It would be like my asking you to hire a photographer to take photos of you and then give them to me for the magazine for free. (We’re just not that kind of magazine.)

Please feel free to contact me about high-res reprints of the article. Thanks for your help!
