Thoughts On Photography
Photography is more than a collection of pretty images to me. Each captured image represents a moment, preserving the present and showing respect to the past. In photography, metal no longer rusts, and people never age. My hope is to save a few of these special moments, to pass on to others.
I was always told when photographing people, that the camera looks both ways, that the photographers emotions, personality, facial expressions are reflected back to the camera from the subject. I believe that this is also the case in nature and landscape photography, even street photography, our emotions, our view of life and how we see the world are also captured in the images we record
"Do not fear death, but rather the unlived life." Natalie Babbitt.
"When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome". Wilma Rudolph
"My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and my camera is my passport". Steve McCurry
Why I choose Fine Art America
Why I choose Fine Art America.
Having spent many years trying different online sales platforms I decided to proceed with Fine Art America, because it fits with how I want my images handled and makes for an easy and convenient experience for my customers.
Fine Art America is an online marketplace and fulfillment center. They provide me with my own sales site, collect all money, print, mat, frame and ship. My clients can easily choose an image and have it printed in the same format as I created. If you have ever tried to make a print of a digital file or negative you would have found that some images fit well on a 8x12 and have to be cropped substantially to fit a 8x10, with Fine Art America, I can have sizes that fit perfectly like 14 x 9.38 and 16 x 10.63. My client can also choose a perfectly fitted matt or matts along with a frame for a very reasonable price.
They also offer the buyer a 30 day money back guarantee
Our return policy is very simple:
If you're not happy with a purchase, for any reason, you can return it to us within 30 days of the order date. As soon as it arrives, we'll issue a full refund for the entire purchase price.
