- All orders may be placed by clicking on the "Buy This Photo" link in the upper right hand corner of the image of interest. This link will accept your order through SmugMug.
Special requests are welcome, and I will do my best to honor any of these. The information contained below is for those who wish to acquire additional information before making their purchase.
- Please understand that cropping will occur on any photo without a 3:2 Aspect ratio.
Aspect ratio is basically the relationship of an image’s width to height. The most common aspect ratio produced by today’s digital cameras is the same aspect ratio of a 4 x 6 print, an aspect ratio of 3:2. This means that the only sizes of prints you can print without losing portions of the image are of that aspect ratio, 8 x 12 for instance. Most of the common enlargement sizes are of a different aspect ratio, or proportion, so you will have to sacrifice parts of the image. So for an 8 x 10, you will need to crop out 2 inches in the photo.
