IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PLEASE READ!

PROOFS, NOT FINISHED IMAGES
Please understand that these are only proofs. They are not representative of the high quality photograph that you will receive after ordering but just a representation so that you may see orientation and subject matter.

CROPPING
I now use SmugMug as my sales site. Smugmug allows you full cropping to your hearts desire. That's great for both of us as I don't have to guess how you might want your image cropped and you get to crop exactly as you would like. There is only one problem and that is with images where the subject is very small in the frame. Those of you with small breeds are certainly familiar with that issue. There is not much I can do about that unless I only shoot when your dog is within range to fill the frame. I choose not to do that because I believe you might want images of your dog competing in events even if they are a little small in the picture. PLEASE, be careful with how much you crop your pictures. There is no magic program running behind the scenes that will warn you that you've over cropped. Try to be realistic. I have the option of overriding your crop and will do so if I decide it will result in an inferior product. If you have any specific concerns about cropping on an image, please contact me before placing your order at steve@coppertop.net and we can discuss it.

SPECIAL REQUESTS
Any requests for image changes such as removal of leashes, background objects etc. must be made via email prior to placing the order. It's best to wait until I have responded in case there are complications with the request. In some cases extra charges will apply.

SOMETHING NEW IN 2013!!
I am now including low res digital copies sent via email for any print that gets ordered. You can now share your prints with friends via facebook and email etc without going to the trouble of scanning them yourself!

Thanks for looking!

 


I truly enjoyed seeing all of you and your dogs once again this year in support of the Monterey DTC "Gifts From The Heart" charity. Thank you so much for participating! The images are up and ready to view. Please be advised that only the images used to create prints for MBDTC's charity were fully edited. Be assured that if you order one of the other images represented here that I will do the same for those before they go to print.

For those looking to use one of the images for Christmas Cards, select "Buy" and then chose "Create Card". That will take you through the process of choosing the type of card, qty, etc.
