Introduction to Documentary Photo Library
East from Carnllidi, St Davids Head

adequate picture captured is better than a perfect picture missed!

editors know that all too often, keywording can be more of a hindrance
than a help. This library doesn't offer online searching and purchasing
facilities. Instead, to help picture buyers avoid time-consuming searches
through hundreds of photographs, DPL will discuss your requirements and
email low-resolution suggestions. Just telephone or email.
