1. I have a very cute dog, can I send my photos to you for inclusion in 'your' calendar?
We are a photo stock agency and are not publishers, we do however market our images to various calendars and other publications. We only offer images that we have taken ourselves and a select few, hand picked photographers.

4. I would love to have my dog photographed for inclusion in publication, how can I go about doing that?
We are always looking for dogs of good breed quality to photograph for various publications. We are located in NC, but do travel quite a bit, mostly along the East coast. If you want to send a photo to us at dogfoto@aol.com of your dog to see if he might work for one of our potential clients, we might be able to include him in one of our upcoming photo sessions.

5. I have been looking for a dog exactly like the one on your site, can you tell me who the breeder is?
As long as a breeder doesn't mind sharing their information and is still actively breeding, we have taken great lengths to offer this information on our site. There is a breeder referral button on the bottom left of our homepage which might help. If you don't see who you are looking for please email us and we'll put you in touch with the breeder. The breeder's or owner's name can be found on the information page of the specific dog you are interested in.

6. What is Rights Managed Stock photography?
We do not offer royalty free images, but are a rights managed agency. This allows us to offer on an individual basis, exclusive rights to a client when needed and permits us to offer the best quality images we have available. We are competitively priced with agencies offering the same high quality. We do offer quantity pricing, and consider each clients needs and budget on an individual basis. Contact us directly for pricing at dogfoto@aol.com, as it is based on the usage of a particular image, the circulation, number of print runs, the rights needed and other factors.

7. Do you take private photo sessions?
We no longer do private sessions, but still offer to do dogs and other animals of good breed quality for possible publication use. You can contact us for more details if you in the NC area or are willing to travel to one of our other shoot locations and want to have your pet considered for stock photos.

8. I was looking for a rare breed of dog, but can't find it on your site. Do you have other images available for me to look at?
We do have many other images available, but are still working to put as many as we can, as quickly as we can, onto our site. With over 500,000 images this is a lengthy process, as this is a new site. Contact us with the breed you are looking for at dogfoto@aol.com and if we don't have it there's a high likelihood we can find some to photograph.

9. How big are your digital files?
We have some images now that are being shot digitally at the highest resolution possible for our equipment (12 megapixel), including RAW files. The majority of our images at present are on fine quality 35mm transparency, which we are currently drum scanning to 100MB digital TIFF files. We can scan them much higher if needed.
