ORDERING AND GENERAL

INFORMATION

 

Order Direct

I recently made a major change to the ordering process. I am no longer employing a 3rd party fulfillment service.  Instead, I will now be using exclusively a local professional lab to provide all my black and white and color work. This is a photo lab I have used for many years. They are experts at what they do and they consistently turn out a great product.

Using a local lab affords me greater quality control, thereby making it easier to reliably produce excellent work while simultaneously addressing any special needs that may arise with your order.

[If you would like, after placing your order, you can also send me an email ([email protected]) alerting me to the order placed, so I can personally shepherd it through the ordering, printing, and shipping process. (This is only an option but not required.) I believe this personal touch will allow for greater satisfaction all the way around.]

Print Size and Cropping

My photographs are shot digitally with an aspect ratio of 2 x 3. Printing therefore is preferable most of the time in the following sizes:

6 x 9

8 x 12

10 x 15

12 x 18

16 x 24

20 x 30

24 x 36

With these dimensions the integrity of the subject matter, visual perspective, and composition remains consistent with my original conception of the image.

If for whatever reason you prefer standard sizes-- typically associated with film products-- such as 5 x 7, 8 x 10, 11 x 14, etc., you will have the option to crop your prints using the crop tool once you've clicked on the "BUY" button.

If you prefer a print size not listed in the site's price list, please contact me by email. I will be happy to accommodate your size preferences whenever possible.

Payment

I use Paypal services to manage all payment transactions. You can now use Paypal to process credit cards, debit cards, or your own Paypal account when making purchases. Simply press the Paypal payment button when you reach that stage in the ordering process and it will take you through the steps to process your preferred payment method. If you must use a different payment service, just let me know. With any other questions please feel free to drop me an email.

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

Join Email List 

Once you sign into the site at the opening Visitor Sign-In prompt, your email address will automatically be added to my mailing list. In addition, if you choose, you can also use the Login button at the bottom of the Home Page to Register with the site. Otherwise, or to add someone else's name to my mailing list, simply go to the "Contact and Email" page, send me an email with your name and address and I will gladly add it to my address book.

NOTE: I only send unsolicited emails when showcasing new images or when announcing a show.

(If you would like to have your name removed from my email list, please notify me and will delete it.)

Customer Satisfaction Guarantee

Image quality is the essence of a good photograph. It is my intention to provide you with the highest quality products and to guarantee your complete satisfaction. A photograph hanging on a wall should bring you pleasure every time it comes into view. 

When you order a photograph online, variations in the way browsers and monitors display these images may occur. It is my desire for you to be fully satisfied with the photographs you purchase. If you are dissatisfied for any reason I will gladly reprint any image that does not meet your expectations. The full purchase price of your order will be refunded if your complete satisfaction cannot be achieved.

Questions

If you have questions about any of the images before you make a purchase, feel free to contact me. I will be happy to answer any inquiries about the images or the ordering process. You can find my email address on the contact page.

Teaching and Consulting

Opportunities are available for individual photography lessons or business consultations. I am happy to work with children and adults. If you have any questions about the services I provide and/or the pricing of my services, please feel free to contact me. Just drop me an email. I respond to all inquiries.
