The Gift FAQ

Q: Are the originals negatives or slides ?
All the originals of the images on this sites are slides - Ektachrome, Kodachrome, Velvia and Sensia II.

Q: How do U scan them?
I get my slides scanned as Kodak Photo CD.

Q: How do U make the prints?
The prints are made directly from the slides at Kodak/Fuji labs in Tokyo. These labs are very particular about the quality of their work. I have had no complaints till now.

Q: Are the prints full frame or trimmed ?
Depends on the photo and your requirements. The prices mentioned above are without trimming. For trimming it costs a little more.

Q: Why are your prices so ridiculously low ?
That's because I want to share my photos with all of U. Maybe when I become very famous I'll hike up my prices ten folds ;-). So they are a steal now.

Q: Give us another reason!
Really I mean it. Also, I am not a full-time pro - that means my income does not have to come from photography sale. I just try to cover my actual cost.

Q: Do U recover your full photographic expenditure ?
NO WAY. I do it for love NOT money. So I don't expect to break even .. ever.

Q: If U don't make profit, why do U take so much trouble ?
When people buy my photos, it's a huge encouragement and a great morale booster.

Q: Do U have postards of the photos ?
Sorry not yet.

Q: How do you plan to ship the prints ?
That depends how my clients want them shipped - registerd post, Fedex courier etc.

Q: Do U sell framed prints ?
Usually No. This way U have more choice over youur decor.

Q: How many photos have u sold yet ?
None of your business. But for such a new site , I have had lot of enquiries and subsequent sales. Thank U all.

Q: Which are your most sought after photos ?
Here are some of the favorites from my galleries which my patrons have bought for gifts and personal use.

Q: How do I place an order ?
Just send me a e-mail about your requirements. We'll work out the details. Place the cursor on the photo thumb-nails to get the photo id. It's in the ALT of the image. If the image U want is not in my galleries, do contact me, I'll look up in my archive.

Q: How do I make the payments ?
There are a couple of ways .. bank cheques, wire transfer etc. But no credit cards please. Sorry.

Q: Do U have discounts for bulk purchase?
It's tough to give discounts on such low prices. But let me think .. ok, for a gift order above $100, U get a 5x7 complimentary print of ur choice. Free. So each $100 in an order gets U an extra print.

  Do drop me a line if you have any interest in any of the images on this site.
Or if U have any particular need and U can't find them here, I would be happy to look them up in my archive.
