Excellent photo and even better seller. I don't often review items I buy, but feel I need to here. I reached out to the seller, Christina, with questions shortly before Christmas. She replied to each of my questions within minutes and given my original choice even recommended another photo that was not originally posted online. She also upgraded me to faster shipping without charge to ensure my picture arrived before Christmas. The picture arrived in plenty of time, packaged with care, and the seller even reached out to ensure delivery was in time. The photo itself looked incredible and was printed on quality photo paper. In short, I cannot recommend the seller and her photos anymore highly.

On my way home from a short trip in beautiful Central America... land of the volcanos! Check out my newest listing from the edge of the amazing Masaya Volcano (seen here as I flew by on my way back to Canada!)

About

Have camera. Will travel...

For me, photography is a way to express my creativity. It has been a passion of mine since the time before digital cameras! I still enjoy taking my dads old Fujica film SLR out once in a while, but I also appreciate the versatility of the digital cameras.

I've been lucky enough to have discovered the joy of traveling and the beauty in experiencing new cultures and places. I'm inspired by rustic landscapes as well as old, decaying buildings. I can't get enough of Latin America, which you may notice is heavily featured in my shop. I also enjoy the natural beauty of Canada and the quirky small towns of America.

I'm currently in the middle of my PhD in Calgary, Canada. Although I'm scientifically minded, there is definitely not a lot of science involved in my photography; I rely mostly on instinct and feeling, which works out every once in a while! I'm drawn more to the unconventional images, but of course, a beautiful shot is a beautiful shot and I'll never deny it a spot in my library.

I opened up Peripheral Images because I wanted to share my photography with like-minded people around the world.

I hope you enjoy!

    I'm a scientist by day but when it comes to my time off, I want to be somewhere beautiful with just my backpack and my camera.

Expedited shipping is also available within Canada and the United States. Please see the upgrades section during checkout.

Q: WHAT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS?
A: Canada has free trade agreements with many countries, however, in the event that VAT, duties, or customs fees are charged this will be the responsibility of the buyer.

Q: WHERE WILL MY PRINTS BE SHIPPED?
A: Items will be shipped to the address stated in your ETSY account. If you are purchasing a print as a gift and would like it sent to an alternate address, please contact me.

A: Absolutely. I will inspect before shipping to ensure the best quality but if you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact me to arrange a refund. The buyer will be responsible for shipping costs.

Additional policies and FAQs
THE INS AND OUTS OF ORDER CUSTOMIZATION
I'd be happy to customize an image for you. Send me a message with what you're specifically looking for. Once I know what you're looking for, I'll send you a proof of the image to make sure you're satisfied before I ship.

Q: CAN I GET A SIZE THAT IS NOT ON THE ORIGINAL LISTING?
A: Definitely! Contact me if you're looking for a specific size or aspect ratio that is not already listed.

Q: I REALLY LIKE THIS PICTURE, BUT I'D PREFER IT IN MONOTONE...
A: Not a problem. If you've found an image that you like but would prefer black and white, sepia or other form of tinted monochromatic image, that can also be arranged. Once I know what you're looking for, I'll send you a proof of the image to make sure you're satisfied before I ship.

Q: HOW ELSE CAN I CUSTOMIZE AN IMAGE?
A: The possibilities are endless! I often have several versions of an image so if you're looking for something just a little different (ie: a portrait instead of a landscape orientation), send me a message; it might be your lucky day!

Q: WHAT OPTIONS DO I HAVE FOR PRINTING?
A: My default is to print on matte paper, but if you'd prefer gloss or pearl, let me know. My images are printed borderless, however it is possible to include a 1/2 inch or 1 inch boarder (may incur additional charges); again, let me know if you would like this option.


... AND OTHER FAQs

Q: WILL MY PRINTS BE GOOD ENOUGH TO HANG IN A MUSEUM?
A: They sure will! The photos will be printed on archival plantain fibre rag paper that does not require optical brightening agents, which can affect the longevity of digitally printed images.

Q: CAN I BUY WHOLESALE QUANTITIES?
A: Yup. Just contact me with the number of prints you're looking to purchase and I'll get back to you with a quote.
