Why are my pictures so small?

The answer can be lengthy. In short, it's a matter of unauthorized usage. It's a common practice to lift images off a web site or do a screen shot, then use those
pictures without permission. If a legitimate business or person needs to view larger samples, they can always contact me and I'll send some over for their
review. By keeping 99% of my images at 3" or less, it minimizes unauthorized commercial use.

Cinematic and Photographic Ethics - I provide cinematic and photographic services to a variety of clients using the best equipment suited to the project at hand.

I do not engage in "setting up images"  by means of staging. There's a difference between creating an advertising campaign and actually catching life as it happens.

All digital pictures are processed like film pictures. They are captured in the cameras RAW format, then uploaded and exported in a RAW file converter like film in a developer.

I do not alter/manipulate pictures. I prefer that they look just like what I saw when I pushed the shutter button. If I alter/manipulate an image, it is clearly marked as such.
