In general, this is a pretty straight-forward photo gallery site. There are some items which may enhance the experience for the user:
The blog for this site is labeled “Photographer’s Notebook.” In addition to commentary, this is used for information about photo shoots or updates to the site. As with most blog pages, the user can subscribe to receive email updates to the notebook. In general, photos will be posted within a day or so of the posting of a new photo shoot in the photographer’s notebook.
The site theme structure does not have a method to convey to the user when a specific photo gallery is updated. So even though the photographer’s notebook will alert users that new photos are available, it might be difficult to locate them.
To remedy this, if the user clicks on the “Photo Galleries” page – the place holder for all photo galleries – that page contains a table showing when each gallery was last updated. Additionally, in all galleries, the most recent photos are displayed first.
A select number of photos may be ordered in print format. Available photos are displayed under the “Purchase Photos” menu option. Photos are available in two paper types, three basic sizes, and with or without foam core backing.
Orders are shipped directly to the purchaser from Maryland within two to three weeks of the order date.
Additional sizes may be available. Send an inquiry through the “Contact Me” menu option, describing the photo name and the size you are interested in. Additionally, you can request printing of photos not currently listed on the “Purchase Photos” menu. In general, most photos can be printed, except those in the ‘Street Photography’ category which show an identifiable person.
Any photo listed on the “Purchase Photos” menu can also be downloaded. The downloads are automatic and are formatted for web or computer display. All downloadable photos are nominally sized to 8 x 10.
When selecting a photo for download, choose “Download” as the Paper Type, “8×10” as the Size, and “None” as the Backing. Users are restricted to downloading one copy of any particular file.
Photos from this site, whether printed or downloaded, may not be used for any commercial application, including advertising. You may use the downloads on a non-commercial website provided credit is given as “Photo Credit: Mike Worley Photos.”
You may make additional copies of any downloaded photo, as long as the watermark is maintained OR the photo is credited in accompanying text as “Photo Credit: Mike Worley Photos”.
Content on this site is protected by a program which watermarks and blurs any photo which a user attempts to download without purchase. Please respect my work.
