Sunday Times Tells Freelancers: No Photos From Syria

Feb 5, 2013

LONDON (February 5, 2013) – A British war photographer has been told not to submit his pictures from the Syria war zone to The Sunday Times because they “do not wish to encourage freelancers to take exceptional risks”.

After submitting pictures from Aleppo this week photojournalist Rick Findler was told by the foreign desk that “it looks like you have done some exceptional work” but “we have a policy of not taking copy from Syria as we believe the dangers of operating there are too great”.

Read more about what Findler was told, and his Syria photographs, in this story by Gavin Rodgers published in London's Press Gazette. And Findler's portfolio is online here.
