We need to source high quality images for use in VideoSkills 4 and possibly for use on the website. We will probably be able to source some images from manufacturers and the like, but we want to avoid being too heavy on branding (although this might be acceptable to some extent where a company is paying for the privilege).
These are the types of images that we will need, and of course you will be credited as the author of the work.
