Purchase


What can I buy?

Most of my images are available for purchase here on this website; just go to each image's page to see the purchase options.  In general, images can be purchased as:

  • electronic files for editorial, commercial, or other uses under a rights-managed license,
  • prints, mugs, or other printed merchandise,
  • or as electronic files for personal use (e.g., as a desktop background)

Just click "buy" on your favorite image to see all the options!


Don't see the license or print size that you want?

Unfortunately, my automated cart system doesn't let me price out every option I'd like, and it can sometimes be difficult to figure out what options you want/need.

If that's the case, or if you have any questions at all, please contact me directly to discuss what you're looking for.  I respond to requests within 24 hours (faster if you put "URGENT" in the subject line), and am happy to build custom quotes tailored to your precise needs and budget.  


Do you do custom work?

Don't see what you want in my library?  I'm happy to do custom photographic projects! I work primarily in the Orange County, California area, but can travel throughout SoCal and beyond if needed.

I typically do landscape architecture and biological macro photography (I'm a biologist by training), though I love a challenge and would be happy to talk about your project with you. My images have been used by architects, scientific journals, textbooks, museums, news magazines, Kickstarter projects, and more.

After we talk about your project I'll get you a detailed quote, so you know precisely what your project will cost and what you'll get before a dime changes hands. I typically price projects on a per-image basis, so other than a base creative fee you'll only pay for the images you use.

Contact me with a brief summary of your project and we'll go from there!


Will images I buy be watermarked?

You may have noticed that all my images on this site are watermarked.  Don't worry, all prints and electronic copies of images are delivered WITHOUT the watermark seen on this site.


How long will it take to get my items?

Electronic purchases will be provided as high-quality JPG files immediately upon completion of checkout and payment; the files are provided automatically by the website, and no interaction from me is required.

All prints are fulfilled by a company in Texas, and will be shipped from them directly to you. It typically takes them a few days to print orders, and then shipping speed will depend on the options you select.   I use this company for my own personal printing, and love their products.

For custom work, talk with me directly for a timeline.


Student? Educator?

If you're a student or educator working on a non-commercial school-related project, you can typically use my images freely as long as you include a citation with a reference to this website. However, please contact me to confirm (I love to hear how my images are being used, and can often also provide higher-resolution watermarked images, if you need them).
