About imagefair.co.uk...

The sites’ images are divided into two broad groups in a table on the Galleries page. The idea of the groups is to help people interested in attractive images from having to wade through dozens of images that are never likely to appeal to them.  The first group are of an aesthetic or artistic nature, are interesting or merely quirky. i.e. they are nice pictures to look at. The second group is basically everything else. In here are images that are purely record shots of events, places, vehicles, or are informative in some way. They may well have no artistic value in themselves but may be of use to people, or publications, interested in particular events or buildings etc.  Think of the images here as being my archive. You can of course click the 'All' link in the Galleries table to see all the pictures of that particular gallery.

Some of the images may find their way into one group rather than another in order to keep them together as a collection.  If you’re looking for something specific then of course use the search faciltiy. Here you can build your own gallery to your requirements.

Not every image makes it to the site as I may consider them to be too similar to images already here. If you are after something that is not here, but you think I may have what you want then please ask. For example I have five 'Penzance Dry Dock' shots in the gallery numbered 3, 6, 7, 8 and 10, so I may well have the intermediate images if the ones on show aren't suitable for you.

I hope to keep the quality of the images up to a high level but the rarer an image is the greater the latitude I’ll give it.  My current camera is a Nikon D90, earlier photos of mine were taken on an 8MP Konica Minolta A1, although some images may have been cropped down from the full sensor size.

The images displayed on the imagefair site have usually had some sharpening applied but have generally not been cropped. Should you wish to purchase an image in digital form it is supplied in as clean a form as possible. Cropping, if cropped at all, has been kept to a bare minimum. They have not been sharpened or resampled (interpolation) to produce bigger images. These should be done by the picture editor, as he is best placed to make decisions based on the ultimate size and proportions he needs. Also it is generally recognised that resampling is best done before sharpening.  Images may have been tidied; litter removed, along with telephone lines and poles etc and most often TV aerials, and be otherwise manipulated to produce a more pleasing effect.  Prints supplied will have had sharpening applied.  Un-manipulated images can usually be supplied if required.

I can send the image either by email, CD or a print up to A3 size on Epson Premium Glossy paper using Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss™ pigments. Please use the feedback link for your request and don't forget to read the all-important legal link.  If requesting a file by email please bare in mind that I would need to compress the image to about 9 Meg to get it through the mail server.  This may result in an unacceptable reduction in quality depending upon your end use.  Please ensure your mailbox has not been set by your system administrator to reject large files.

The print sizes indicated by the images are in centimetres and are based on the 300 pixels per inch often used in publishing.  However 200 to 240 pixels per inch is usually considered optimum for photo printing.  Thus, an A3 page can be printed from a typical image (3264 x 2448) with no discernable loss of quality.
