Policy on the use of photos

I think the photos shown on this Web site are of too poor a quality for publishing on paper. They are intended for Internet consumption. At the moment, you will not find any of the originals here. I might put up the originals later, but for the moment if you need any you will have to drop me a line at my e-mail. If you deem your request important (that is, you need it for something other than your viewing pleasure ), then I will do my best to accomodate you.

I don't intend to charge anything for the use of my photos (of course, I hope you follow the general practice of crediting pictures to their owners in a copyrighted publication), but do give me some time to download them for you. Sometimes work gets in the way and I may not be able to respond immediately.

My photos

All the pictures on this Web site are my own. Should you find any of your pictures on this site, please do let me know and I will remove it or ask for your permission to publish it. The early pictures were taken mainly using a normal SLR camera and scanned into a computer.

Between July 1998 to April 2000 I used a second-hand Casio QV-70 digital camera (left). It has 4MB of memory, storing 96 pictures at its only resolution of 320 x 240.

While this camera is adequate for amateur Web publishing, the colour reproduction is poor. I liked it very much, though, because it does its job for a cheap camera. What you pay is what you get. I sold it in late 2000 after I bought a new digital camera.

In April 2000, I bought a Fuji MX-1200. It has a resolution of 1280 x 960, and immeasurably better colour reproduction. I added a 16MB Smartmedia card, storing about 49 shots of medium quality. You will see that pictures after April 2000 are of much better quality. Since I use it mainly for taking cactus and succulent photos for the Web site, I will probably use this camera for years to come.
