The Studio Partner Editorial policy

The purpose of this document is to outline the principles, practices and policies The Studio Partner and its suppliers uphold in delivering the highest standards of editorial integrity to our customers. As an editorial content provider, we recognize, respect and adhere to the ethical conduct acknowledged by both our industry and our peers. The Studio Partner and its suppliers strive to achieve and support the high standards in photojournalism today through good judgment and a commitment to our editorial principles, practices and process.

Our Principles

We adhere to a common set of professional journalistic principles that guide our staff, our processes and our operations. We maintain an individual and collective responsibility to uphold these principles throughout our news organization.

Responsibility

We believe that photographs are the visual communication of a story and should be held to an equal level of accountability, responsibility and integrity as the written word in journalism. Images illustrate and reflect the events of our world today and therefore have a responsibility to be delivered to the customer with accuracy and impartiality.

Independence

Only our editorial staff will have control over the photojournalism process -- from assignment to delivery. At no time do we permit non-editorial individuals or groups to have influence over our editorial coverage or workflow. Our editorial coverage is free of obligation and has no conflict of interest in its creation or production process.

Integrity

Integrity is the driving force behind all that we do and it is a founding principle of The Studio Partner’s and its supplier’s organizations. We maintain the balance of an individual's right to privacy with our obligation to cover the story. Our commitment to integrity is reflected throughout our editorial workflow and our fair and unbiased coverage of the events and stories of today.

Our Practices

We have instituted clear and non-ambiguous practices to uphold our core principles. These practices comprise our code of conduct that is expected of all levels of editorial staff, photographers, contributors, partners and suppliers of The Studio Partner.

1. The Studio Partner and its suppliers of said imagery and their staff maintain complete control over the gathering and distribution of editorial photos.
2.  The Studio Partner and its suppliers will not accept special editorial access or privileges by virtue of The Studio Partner’s suppliers’ commercial relationships.
3. No photojournalist or editorial staff member will operate in a self-serving manner. No staff member shall let their personal opinions influence the coverage of stories or events, nor shall a third party be allowed to dictate or influence our editorial process.
4. We will never censor our editorial coverage.
5. All images will be credited to reflect the source. See photo credit details below.
6. Post-editorial licensing of photos will be in accordance with news-industry standards.
