1. How to Order. This section shows you how to place an order and what to expect. Back to top
Ordering a print is quick and easy, first choose a gallery that interests you from the Galleries section at the top of the page, select an image and then at the bottom of the image you like, click on the Buy print / License Image link as shown below:
Then, at the ordering form, you will be presented with a thumbnail of the image you selected, information about the print sizes available for the image you chose and then a short form to fill out what size and type of print you want.
Your mailing address is necessary because i will have to calculate a shipping charge. Shipping can be done through Canada Post or Fedex. After submitting the form, you should see a thank you message appear. This means the email was successfully sent to me.
Once you submit the order, i will get back to you with a Paypal Invoice. once the invoice is paid, i will create the order and have the print sent to you.

No. The prints and licensed images will be delivered to you without watermarks or logos on them.
3. Can i print any photo at large print sizes? Back to top
No, print sizes vary because i have used multiple cameras and techniques to take my photos. My standard camera resolution allow for maximum photo quality at 12x18" and can be enlarged with very good results up to 24x36". If it is a shot on medium format film, i can print those images up to 40x60". However some of my digital shots were taken as a stitched mosaic, which you will see in each gallery at the bottom section "Panoramas/Large Prints". Some of these images are over 300 megapixels and can be printed up to 120" wide.
