Terms and Conditions

Usage:

All photographs are purchased for personal use only and cannot be copied either in print or electronically.  Any copying of photographs is a violation of copyright.  

For information on commercial use of photographs, please call me at 816-444-4459. This may or may not be available depending of the picture and who is shown. In most cases for this I would need to contact the person, company and or persons before this type of sale can be made. If it is a good picture it is probably worth the extra effort. More, commonly, however, you may wish to re-create the picture for specific commercial use (that is, to fit your usage concepts).

Note on Proof-Picture CD's

These are intended as catalogs for purchasing. They contain only pictures with low resolutions - insufficient to make good prints on paper. These pictures are sized for web use and as such are intended for the use of the dancers and companies depicted on their own web sites, not anyone else's web site. Indeed the original intent of the CD's is as a easy to use catalog for the dancers and companies to purchase pictures of themselves and their buddies.

I am simply unable to put all the pictures on the web except for certain events for limited periods of time. They are too many and the hosting charges are definitely real for me. When I do have these proof pictures online I will leave them up as long as I think the dancers may want pictures for themselves and friends an family (such as for the holidays). After that I have to take them down. That is where the CD's come in. They are intended as a service to the dancers to allow me to offer a look at proofs but with the ease of at-home viewing on their own computers.

Payments:

All purchases require the use of PayPal (unless you contact me directly). PayPal handles all financial transactions. They are the experts here, in particular the up-to-date experts in computer security (a full-time job and one of the few computer jobs still paying well, a category now pretty much cut down to network specialists and security specialists) so I hand off all payment operations to PayPal.

Shipping:

Because each framed print is produced after an order is received, customers can expect their orders to arrive within four weeks of ordering. For questions, please call us at 816-444-4459

Returns:

Customers can return photographs within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. If in doubt, call anyway.

Please hold on to the packaging used to send you your item and the original receipt that was included in the package. Use the original packaging, if possible, when shipping items back.

To return an item, please call 816-444-4459
