ORDERING AND GENERAL
I recently made a major change to the ordering process. I am no longer employing a 3rd party fulfillment service to print my work but instead will be using a local professional lab. I've worked with this lab for years. They are experts at what they do and consistently turn out a great product.
If you would like, after placing your order, you can also send me an email ([email protected]) alerting me to your order so that I can personally shepherd it through the ordering, printing, and shipping process. This is an option but not required.
Checking Out: On the payment page you can either check out as a Registered Client or skip this step and "Check Out as Guest".
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
Using these dimensions allows me to maintain the integrity of the subject matter, the visual perspective, and the composition of the image as I originally conceived of it and shot it.
If for whatever reason you prefer standard sizes (those 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 accordingly using the crop tool once you click the "BUY" button.
If you prefer a print size not offered in the price list, please contact me by email. I will be happy to accommodate your size preferences whenever possible.
If you would like an image on a mug, a tee shirt, on canvas, etc., be sure let me know. I will do my best to provide it.
I use PayPal services to manage all payment transactions. You do not need to have a current PayPal account to use PayPal services.
PayPal will 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 step-wise through the payment process. If you must use a different payment service just send me an email.
CHARITABLE, FUND RAISING, AND SPECIAL DISCOUNT PROGRAMS
If your order falls into one of these categories, please be aware that there is no opportunity during the ordering process to note this. If you order a print through one of these non-profit/fund-raising/charitable programs, please send me an email with your name and the name of the charitable organization so that I can process your order accordingly. Thank you.

Not Receiving Newsletters and Emails?
Please check your spam or junk folder. If you find my emails there, send them to your inbox (and if marked "Junk", uncheck the box).
My own perspective of course is the only one I have. I would love to hear yours. Please feel free to share your comments, reactions, or perceptions about any of the images or the site itself. It can only help me grow. Thank you.
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.
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.
