How To's and What Not's
To access the photos on my site, you can either flip through them from the home page, or browse from the Favorites Gallery (both contain the same 30 or so photos). Or you can search using the search button at the top right hand side of the page with common search terms relative to the location or subject of the photo you like (“lighthouse” or “Central Park”).
Once you’ve found your photo, click on the pink “Buy” button on the lower right hand side of the page.
From there, you can buy traditional paper prints or wall art, which includes canvas prints, metal prints, acrylic metal prints or wood prints. A description of each type of print and materials can be found by clicking through the "see more" button on each type of item.
Once you’ve selected your photo and you have clicked through to buy it, sometimes SmugMug automatically slates you for a 4x6 print. (No idea why. Get with it SmugMug! It’s 2017!) You can change the product by clicking the button that says “change product” on the right hand side of the screen. You will then be prompted with a menu of options and sizes to choose from.
If you wish to buy a print and have it framed traditionally, pick the print size and type from the “paper prints” list, and head to check out. There you will see an option button for “add frames and more” and you can select frames from Bay Photo there. Another option- you can also buy a print and then use your own matte and frame. In order to do this, you must pick a size from the "Standard Size" list, and then buy the next standard size up of matte and/or frame on your own. (Example: for an 8x10 photo print, get an 11x14 matte or frame).
Before confirming your order, BE SURE to take a quick look at how the photo is cropped, as it will change based on the size of the print. You can adjust the cropping by dragging it on the image itself. This is especially true for traditional canvas prints, which require a bit of extra print to wrap around the sides of the frame. Any questions at all on this, just drop me a line.
Once you've chosen your print or wall art and confirmed your cropping preference, click on "Add to Cart" and you'll be sent to a typical online cart sale page.
I want you to be happy with your purchase! That’s why there is a 100% print guarantee. I wouldn’t work with SmugMug if it didn’t have one! If you're ever unhappy with your prints or wall art, SmugMug will adjust and reprint or refund your order, whichever you prefer. Simply send an email to me through the contact button at the top right of the page, or directly to SmugMug at the email address on their receipt within 30 days of receiving your order and we’ll help you out.
Questions? Comments? Just want to send some love?
I would love to hear from you! No question is too big or too small, and I always love to hear feedback on the good and the bad. The easiest way to get to me is by clicking on the contact button at the top right corner of this page. It will prompt you to enter your email address and your questions or comments, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
But wait! There’s more!
If you enjoy my photos here, I tend to share (a lot!) on Instagram. You can find me there (and follow me too!) at Instagram.com/claremarienyc. I can also usually arrange to have photos from there printed through this site, so if you have an interest, please let me know!
Most of all, I want to offer my sincere appreciation for your interest in my photography. It means the world to me to share my little passion project with you, so thank you.
