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.
Many photos may be ordered in print format. When a photo is available for print, a print option list will be displayed to the right of the photo when the individual image is displayed from the thumbnail grid. Photos are available in two paper types, three basic sizes, and with or without foam core backing. Print images will not display any type of watermark. Copyright information will be printed on the back of the photo.
- Please note that print images may be cropped slightly from what is displayed on the website to fit the selected dimensions.
Orders are shipped directly to the purchaser from Maryland within two to three weeks of the order date. Prints are only available for customers in the United States.
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. In general, most photos can be printed, except those in the ‘Street Photography’ category which show an identifiable person.
Any photo available for print can also be downloaded. The downloads are automatic and are formatted for web or computer display. Images are nominally 1000 pixels on the longest side. Downloaded images will not have the yellow watermark which is displayed in the center of the photo as shown on this site. Downloads may, however, have my signature watermark near the bottom.
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 (personal) 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”.
