Hi, I'm Humanitarian photojournalist Karl Grobl.

I specialize in, and contract exclusively with, humanitarian organizations.

During November and December I will be returning to Thailand, India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia
to create updated images for clients that I shot for
immediately following the tsunami last December

Currently I still have shooting days available for you too !

Communicating Tsunami Relief Efforts.

Do you have the photos you need to demonstrate to your benefactors, the impact their generous donations have made to the tsunami victims ?

Will your 2005 Annual Report have images that literally "show" the impact of your tsunami recovery efforts ?

Do you have compelling stories and images of individuals and families who have benefited from your tsunami programs ?

Are you and your marketing materials (print video and web-based) ready for the one-year anniversary of the tsunami ?


Hire a Professional

Karl traveled to the tsunami areas in early January and spent more than a month creating some truly stunning images of the relief efforts of 5 different NGOs.

Working in Sri Lanka, Indonesia and India, Karl captured images that were then used to inform, motivate and thank donors for their generous support.

Additionally the photos provided a historical record of the activities of each organization's relief efforts during the largest humanitarian assistance effort of the modern world.

What does it cost ?

For just $500 per day, Karl documents your programs in stunning high resolution digital photographs, using top of the line Canon Professional Digital cameras.

You receive exclusive lifetime rights to all photos created during the contract period. (typically, more than 100 top quality images per day), which you then use in your marketing materials, website etc.

Karl can even deliver images to you over the internet from remote locations, which can be used in real-time web updates and feature stories on your website. These will be especially important on and around the 1 year anniversary date.

  • Why not use stock images ?
  •    If you have been purchasing expensive one-time rights to individual "stock images", or are using low quality non-professional "snaps" taken by volunteers, images that just don't represent your organization effectively, this is a great opportunity for you.

    Why not get hundreds of stunning photos of your actual people and programs in action. All images are organized, optimized and delivered on CD rom, ready for printing or use on the web, and in PowerPoint presentations. All Images come with exclusive lifetime commercial rights and no further publication costs whatsoever....it's like having the negatives !
