I collect personal identification information from Users in several ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit my website, subscribe to the newsletter, fill out a contact form, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources I make available on our Site.

To deliver images to my clients, I use a externally hosted gallery and proofing service: Pixieset Media Inc.

Users may also visit our Site anonymously, but I only collect personal identification information from Users if they voluntarily submit such information to me.
