Meet the ICL Photographers

We have been blessed to have access to an incredible photographic library for use with our articles. We believe that these photographs greatly enhance the presentation of the articles published at the Integrated Catholic Life. Some of these are restored works of traditional religious art that we acquire commercially. Others are the works of incredibly talented photographers and friends who make their photographs available to us for use in ICL articles at no cost. Of course, all photography used at the ICL retain their copyrights and may not be reproduced or downloaded. 

Randy and I take this opportunity to introduce two of ICL’s photographers. We are so grateful for their friendship, generosity and talent and we know you are too
