Brett Pelletier Photography - Q&A
What payment options do you accept?
I accept Visa, MaterCard, and Paypal. I have learned over the years that contacting me directly for ordering is the easiest if you are unsure about anything. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
Do you have discounts for large orders?
Yes. Discounts are available for large orders.
5% off for $500 or more - 10% off for $1000 or more
Large orders must be two or more items.
Discounts are given in two ways. The first option is a return payment from me once your full payment has been received (for normal web orders) and you must contact me after ordering within two weeks with email or phone and inquire about the discount to qualify. The second option is to simply contact me before you order and I can send you an invoice with the discount that can be paid with paypal, credit cards, or bank checks instead of through my web site.

How long have you been a photographer?
I studied Art in college in 1993-96, specifically crayon d'ache canvas painting and computer graphic design. I learned how to use a computer to help create an idea visually and then began in the business of photography around 14 years ago to take the place of more expensive and time consuming canvas painting. Now that I'm a photographer, I'm not so sure which is more expensive and time consuming anymore.
Do you take portrait or special occasion photography as well as Nature and Landscape?
Yes. Occasionally. Contact me if interested in setting up a day.
How do you capture such vivid colors and tone in your images?
Through the use of camera lens filters and the digital darkroom you can help a great image become awesome or help a good image become better, but you cannot help a bad photo look good. Don't worry I don't offer 'bad images'. Beautiful images, on the other hand I do offer and these cannot be faked and the right techniques, aperture, shutter-speed, and composition must be present for any possibility of a 'wow' image. Not to mention the lighting, weather, time of day, and season all play a huge part.
What is a Giclee or Canvas Print?
A Giclee or Canvas Print is a photograph specially printed on archival canvas with special UV, and scratch resistant ink. It is currently the longest lasting method of printing a photograph with an estimated life-span of 200 years depending on display conditions.
What is a Fine Art Print?
Fine Art Prints are printed professionally with the highest quality Epson Printer and Fujicolor Paper for excellent color, tone, and durability. Fujicolor Crystal Archive Preferred Paper is the latest offering from Fujifilm's Crystal Archive family of color paper, for use in both digital and conventional systems.
Do you print your photography your self and with the white borders?
No for both. My images are printed locally by a professional printer and without borders. Professional grade paper, printing, and photography.
Can you print other sizes then you have listed for sale?
In most cases the answer would be Yes. However, some cropping effects the overall image thus the answer would be No. Got a question about a size? Don't hesitate to contact me. I'll respond promptly.
Do you have a gallery to view your work?
No. (Insert Gallery Sponsor Here)
Currently a little of my work can be viewed at the Shallow Shaft Restaurant at Alta, Utah. This is a fine-dining restaurant in Little Cottonwood Canyon, so not a gallery, but a place to view some of my work. And if you are up the canyon you can also stop by the Snowbird’s El Chanate Restaurant and view a 30x90 gallery wrap canvas of mine.
What does deepfrogphoto mean?
Deepfrog is a term I came up with around 10 years ago to help people remember my email address. Originally the name 'deepfrog' was a Pearl Jam fan club member alias. I kept the name and added 'photo' to promote myself in photography because no one can remember how to spell Pelletier correctly and deepfrogphoto is kinda catchy....right?
