How to Use This Site
This site is designed to make it easy to search thousands of images wildlife, nature, places, and people. We serve the needs of professional buyers who want to license images for commercial, editorial, or institutional use. Anyone interested in ordering fine prints can also use the collection.
All images on this website are protected by copyright. Any use or distribution of any images from this site without a license is strictly prohibited. See Terms and Conditions for additional details.
You can browse the image collection by category listed on the left or by entering keywords in the search box. The scope of your search results is determined by your selection of keywords -- the more keywords you use, the more targeted your results will be. Use fewer words to see a larger set of images or more words to narrow your choices. An Advanced Search option is available to help you locate specific subjects or locations.
Quick Search- By default the system uses "Match at least one keyword" for the quick search function. If you input "beautiful sunset" (without the quotes) into the quick search field, then the search function will return results for any media that contain either "beautiful" OR "sunset" in its properties.
The system supports the "AND" and NOT" operands in the quick search function by the use of the plus sign (+) and minus sign (-) respectively in front of the keywords.
If you input "beautiful +sunset" (without the quotes) into the search field, the system will only return results for any media that contain both keywords "beautiful" AND "sunset" in its properties.
If you input "beautiful "sunset" (without the quotes) into the search field, the system will return results for any media that contain the keyword "beautiful", but this media can't contain the keyword "sunset" in its properties.
Note: There must not any spaces between the second keyword and the input operands (+), (-) keywords.
Advanced Search - The advanced search functions slightly differently. It allows you to one of three options for your searches.
Match at least one keyword
The system will return results for any media that contain either one of the input keywords in its properties.
Match all keywords
The system will only return results for any media that contain all input keywords in its properties.
Match exact phrase
The system will only return results for any media that contains the exact input keyword phrase in its properties.

Fine Art Prints
You can order prints of any image found on this site. I will fulfill the print order as quickly as possible, usually within 10 days. However, if I am travelling, as is usually the case in the summer, it may take much longer. In the summer of 2012, I expect to have an automated deliver system in place so the print is shipped directly to you. For more information about fine prints, send me an email at email@example.com.
How to License Images on This Site
To provide a quote for image usage, we will need to know :
- How will the image be used? For example: book, magazine, brochure, website, video, etc.
- In what industry will the image be used?
- What is the distribution area? For example: local, regional, national, worldwide
- How many copies of a publication will be produced?

A standard image license covers one-time, non-exclusive use for print or electronic publication. However, if the image is used initially in a brochure and is later needed for a magazine ad, for example, a new license is required. If exclusive use of an image is needed, please contact us.
Image files can be delivered via a download link (preferred), via FTP, or sent on CD/DVD. At this point in time, direct download from this site is not enabled.
The vast majority of the images on this site were taken with one of the following: Canon 1D Mark II (8.2 megapixels), Canon 1 Ds Mark II (16.7 megapixels), Canon 5D Mark II (21.1 megapixels), or a Canon 7D (18.0 megapixels). Digital captures have file names formatted as YYMMDD xxxx or YYYYMMDD xxxx, with Y being the year, M the month and D the day and xxxx being the camera file number. Images originally captured on film have a 4 or 5 digit Media Name, for example- 12345. Some images have been cropped from their original size. Please contact me if you have questions about an image or images.
Displayed images are 800 pixels on the longest edge. As with an image that is compressed, there is a certain loss of detail and color compared to the full size image.
