Frequently Asked Questions:
 
Q: Why don't you print on location like some photographers?
 
A: My photos are printed through a professional lab.
I want the images you purchase to last a lifetime; so I send them to a professional lab that has proven itself dependable. I could sell images on the spot to many customers who would have been tempted with an impulse buy. Yes, directly out of the inkjet or dye sub printer images look as good or sometimes better than professional lab prints. The problem is that inkjet prints will tend to "bleed", which will make the sharp edges blur over time. New technology has helped the inks resist fading, but at this time they haven't solved the issue with bleeding. Dye Sub prints have a couple of different problems. The first of which is the blacks prematurely fade to a muddy color and if the photo is handled much, the layers of laminates tend to peel apart.

I would rather my customers look back at pictures they got from me years down the road and think of what a good time they were having when the picture was taken rather than looking at a less than perfect image and wondering why they paid money for a picture that looks so - so. It is hard to remember back a year when the picture used to look good.

There is something to be said for impulse buys, but I personally have too much pride in my work to sell images that only last a year or so. Hopefully soon technology will provide us with something affordable we can use for on-location printing.
