How do I place an order?
The easiest and fastest way is to place your order  is  by visiting our gallery and filling out the order form underneath the images. For custom sizes please email or call.

What if I want a size that is not listed on the website?
We are happy to create custom sizes for you at no additional costs – just contact us with your needs.

How large can your photographs be printed?
Because I use a high resolution digital camera, most images can be printed up to 90″ wide, and some can go even larger. It all depends on the specific photograph, and the presentation. For more details, please contact us – there are many options we can offer.

Do you offer discount and wholesale pricing?
Yes, this is based on volume and specific use. We love to work with non-profits and educational institutions!

How soon will my prints arrive?
If the prints are in stock, we usually ship within 24 hours of receiving your order. Otherwise, you prints should arrive within one week. As always, we take great pride in keeping you informed of our progress at every stage of your order.

What exactly are archival prints?
All of our prints (paper and canvas) are archival, which means we use only certified archival papers, inks, coatings, and other framing materials. The inks and papers we use are rated for longetivity and permanence by Wilheim Research to last 90+years without any fading or color change when displayed under proper conditions (no direct UV light for extended periods of time). You can be sure your investment will remain in the same condition you receive it for many generations.

Do you offer sample prints?
We would be happy to send you a small (5×7) sample print of any of our photographs for your evaluation. Please call or email us.

What are the benefits of canvas prints vs paper?
-Canvas gallery wraps are very popular for several reasons:

  • They weigh much less that framed prints
  • They don’t exhibit any glare or reflections
  • Prints can be made much larger and still fit your budget
  • Canvas prints provide a frameless presentation which creates a window into the scene

-Framed prints are still a beautiful and appropriate way to display photographs:

  • Traditional look and appeal
  • Our beautiful wood molding selections can add a formal and decorative accent to your home or office
  • Paper prints exhibit slightly more detail and less texture than canvas
  • I still prefer a fine art paper for black and white photographs

Where do you have your prints made?
We do all of our own printing, matting, and framing completely in house in our custom studio. We even teach workshops showing you how to do much of the same yourself!

Do you have your own gallery where I can visit and see prints in person?
We’re working on it…stay tuned! In the meantime, you can see my work regularly at Riverwinds Gallery in Beacon, NY

Workshops

What is your cancellation policy?
Weekend workshops: student cancellation more than seven days before the start of a workshop: full refund. Student cancellation 7 or fewer days in advance: no refund, but will cerdit for a future workshop.

I reserve the right to cancel any program that does not meet minimum participant requirements, in which case participants will be informed as soon as possible and all money will be refunded. Instructor is not responsible for any losses incurred as a result of a course cancellation. If traveling in for a workshop, participants are encouraged to purchase refundable airline tickets and consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance.

Logistics and Transportation
To allow for the maximum flexibility and affordability, each student is responsible for their own transportation. However, car-pooling among students is encouraged and helps reduce fuel costs.

Special Health Conditions
We request that you disclose any medical conditions you might have including allergies or special nutritional requirements. This is important as it may affect both your own and other people’s enjoyment of the workshop and will allow us to accommodate your needs for a better workshop experience.

Are lodging and meals covered by the workshop fee?
Unless noted otherwise in the workshop description, only the instruction is covered in the fee. The exception are all one-day workshops which include lunch and refreshments. Lodging and meals are extra for multi-day workshops.

What is the specific itinerary for the workshop I am interested in?
The workshop description gives a general idea of where and what will be covered during the course of the workshop. Specific itineraries are difficult to predict when planning outdoor photography, since weather and light can be unpredictable. Because I am familiar with the locations we’ll be traveling to, I scout each area beforehand for the best conditions. That requires flexibility and reacting to short-term changes in weather. Sunrise and sunset are often the best times to photograph, so expect to be getting up early and staying up late so as not to miss these prime shooting opportunities!

Can my non-photographer spouse or other family member tag along on the workshop?
Please contact me to make special arrangments for non-photographer spouses and other family members.

Are the workshops designed for advanced photographers or beginners?
Both! Just be honest as to your skill level so I can give you the personalized instruction you need.

Are the workshops for digital photographers only or can I shoot film?
Both, unless otherwise noted in the workshop description. There is a lower percentage of film shooters these days, but they are still more than welcome to join us.

What if it rains?
Rainy conditions can provide some of the moodiest and sublime light of any photography trip. Unless the weather poses danger or harm to the group, the workshop goes on.
