The Sunday Times No Longer Accepting Photos from Syria - Shooting There is Too Dangerous

Times-No-Pics-From-Syria.jpgYou've probably seen and heard accounts of what war photographers go through when they're on the ground along with soldiers and civilians from both sides. It's important, even essential, to capture images of what's happening. It's risky though, and poses a great deal of danger. To The Sunday Times, that danger isn't worth it.

Freelance photographer Rick Findler submitted his shots of the Syrian conflict to The Sunday Times but was turned down, on the grounds that the paper doesn't want to encourage photographers to take such great risks.
