Greetings! after navigating the treacherous site that is richardgibbsmusic.com I was lucky enough to arrive here! I am working on documenting as much Oingo Boingo as i can and I am hoping some one here or perhaps the Honorable Richard Gibbs himself could assist me. Currently there is little documentation to be found regarding many of the Oingo Boingo members.
I am lacking photographs from the Oingo Boingo era of many of the members, and hopefully you might be able or willing to provide some or at least direct me as to where they might be obtained.
I am currently working my way down a list, as of now pictures I am lacking are: Kerry Hatch, Sluggo, Dale Turner and Richard Gibbs. I am aware there are several group pictures available, but it would be fun to have decent quality pictures of these amazing individuals.
Just a disclosure, I am wanting these pictures for a non profit fan site i am working on (oingoboingo.org). I am a HUGE boingo fan, and believe it is my duty to introduce others to their awesomeness.

Individual photos of all band members appear on the back cover of the album Only A Lad and in the insert to the album Good For Your Soul. Sluggo and Turner also have individual photos in the liner notes for Dark at the End of the Tunnel. You could scan those photos.
Boy! If you're looking for something more personal, Dale and specially Kerry will be tough. Perhaps you can search on Flickr' and ask for permission to use those photo's. You can also check with the gang over at SteveBartek.com and see if they can help, or go with what Matthew has suggested. Best o' luck.
I do like Richards' Facebook profile picture. Holding a guitar in one hand and holding a bat that rests on his shoulder
