|Many of the photographs viewable on the photographer's several web sites were originally exposed for research use by the photographer in his own design work. Accordingly, many are of details. These images are printed on a standard ink jet printer on 8 1/2" x 11" ink jet photo paper. Cost is $50.00 each to cover printing, handling, and shipping in the US and Canada. Shipping outside the US or Canada is extra. If I do additional research, I charge $50.00 per hour.|
These images can be printed on canvas, glossy ink jet photo paper, or traditional photo process - not available in all sizes. When printing on canvas or ink jet paper, we use UV archival ink. Ink is rated for one year in direct sun and almost indefinitely if away from direct sun. They can also be printed on traditional photo paper. This printing is done by third party service bureaus. |
Printed to custom sizes up to 60 inches wide. Contact for quotes.

Images can be printed on canvas or glossy ink jet photo paper using UV archival ink. Ink is rated for one year in direct sun and almost indefinitely if away from direct sun. They can also be printed on traditional photo paper.

There is a 30-day, no-questions-asked refund policy. Return prints or artwork in the original condition. For stock images, return the CD and delete all copies from you system and remove from projects and you are no longer licensed to use returned images. There is no return on research photos and information. |
Damaged orders. Retain all materials until the shipper can investigate. I can make no refunds or replacements unless the shipper has investigated the damage and paid on the shipping insurance. All orders are insured and will be replaced upon return of original order and packing material. One-of-a-kind artworks will be refunded or replaced with similar - your choice.
Should you damage a print later, return it for a half-price replacement. One-of-a-kind artworks not included. Contact a local art restorer.
|I generally do not perform color correction to these stock images. I leave it to the users to adjust to their individual needs. In many cases, these images are bracketed and if you need a lighter or darker version, we may be able to accommodate. I suggest you test if you can adjust the watermarked images here to your needs and note the settings. Then perform the same adjustments to the copy for which you purchase the license. I do sometimes make adjustment and these are designated with a (DA) in the description.|
We do not provide framing for several reasons. A print can be shipped relatively inexpensively. A framed print increases the shipping costs many times. Also any glass used would probably be broken in shipping. Most towns have framing stores where you can buy the perfect frame for your situation. Another consideration is that your tastes in decorating may be different than ours and with so many options for frames, you are more likely to find a frame you like if you shop yourself and bring your own color samples to the framer. |
Recommendations when buying a frame and matting. Use acid-free matting material or specify the framer use acid-free materials. Use anti-reflective glass. Also any material using artificial dyes will fade in direct sun light and over long periods of time. We use UV archival ink, but even this will fade in direct sunlight and over time. To ensure long term enjoyment of your prints, avoid direct sun or bright spaces. Use low UV lighting.
|Each print in the limited edition print series is signed and numbered on the front or back of the print (your choice). Print runs are limited to 250 prints to provide you with a greater value for your purchase.|
|I have thousands of slides to review and scan. I also have black and white and some color negative that will also eventually be reviewed and scanned. These scans will be 4,000 dpi. I have recently begun using a 6.3 mp digital camera (my first digital camera) and will upgrade soon. I am storing these images as compressed TIF files.|
