Legal Notice:  All the galleries of this site are protected by copyright. The galleries of events, where people appear, are private and thus especially protected with passwords, right click messages and watermarks. If you have the password it is because you have participated in the event, or you have some kind of relationship with people who appear in the event. Only in such cases you are allowed to download “photos of people”. In order to purchase a download you must identify yourself by paying at least €1 per download. By purchasing a download of any of the “photos of people” you confirm that you have participated in the event, or you have some kind of relationship with people who appear in the event. Your payment data will be permanently recorded, in order to facilitate the traceability in case any image is used illicitly or unethically.

Buy Downloads:  You can buy downloads of the photos of your event. Click the "BUY" button in each photo, select "This Photo", then "Download" and proceed. Prices for personal licence are: €1 for reduced resolution optimised for web and smartphones –this resolution is perfect for most of the use cases; €3 for compressed sizes to 1 Mega;  €6 for the originals, that can be up to 50 Megas. Also you can download the whole gallery for personal use, starting at a price of €75.

Order High-Quality Prints:  Directly from this site you can also order high-quality prints of any of the photos of my FINE ART COLLECTION, with worldwide shipping in about one week. You can order prints as well of any photo of your event. Prints can be ordered in the most modern formats and materials, with true-to-color calibration and museum-grade finishing, ready to hang. "Alumini" is our recommended substrate for printing large formats for decorative purposes, with outstanding vibrancy and depth of image (to learn more about Alumini, see below in "Recommended Substrates").

Guarantees: Our printing lab is the Scotland based Loxley Colour, one of the best printing labs in Europe, and our hosting web is the US company SmugMug, responsible for delivering the high-quality prints directly to your home. A SmugMug fidelity-print guarantee plus a refund guarantee are included in the Loxley prices: (1) Fidelity print guarantee: For each of your print orders a team of specialists is going to check the technical specifications of the original photo and will calibrate them to make the photo suitable for the specific size, finishing and substrate of your order. This guarantees that you obtain what you see on the screen, avoiding the most common problem of digital photography, that is that the quality of the prints is not consistent with the perfection and vibrant colors we see in our devices (a problem that is especially important for medium and big formats, that quite often require a large amount of engineering to produce reliable prints); (2) Refund guarantee: Once the photo-file is adapted by SmugMug professionals to your requirements, Loxley Colour will be able to produce a perfect print for you. But if you aren’t happy with the result of any print, SmugMug will get it right again and will order a reprint for you. Alternatively, SmugMug will provide a 100% refund, whichever you prefer.

Prices:  The prices of the prints at this site are set up by SmugMug and can be higher than the prices offered by Loxley directly in its own web (especially for medium and big formats). The reason is that the prices include the costs of the above mentioned guarantees plus a 10% copyright profit. If you want to avoid any  incremental price due to the cost of the guarantees, you can simply buy a download of the original and order a print directly to Loxley or to your local printing lab.

Recommended Substrates: The most modern substrate for printing photos is the Alumini, also called Metal Prints  (more videos below). Thus, Alumini is our recommended product for printing the photos of your event, or any photo of our Fine Art collectionAlumini prints are totally different from the usual "aluminium prints", that are quite often a thin photographic print that is mounted onto a sheet of aluminium. On the contrary, in creating the Alumini they take the image, reverse it via heat transfer at 240º to the aluminium substrate, and infuse the ink straight into the metal. A choice of four coatings is then applied to provide a polished and defined finish, ensuring longevity (*). The vivacity and realism of the resulting image are outstanding compared with the traditional prints mounted on aluminium, and also compared with classic wall papers and canvas prints. The Alumini product has a real Wow! factor, unlike anything out there in the market. The Alumini printing process adds a whole new dimension to fine art photography. What makes the Alumini such a fabulous product is that it is durable, versatile, waterproof, weather and moisture resistant (*), suitable for bathrooms, and ultra scuff resistant. The resolution, clarity, and depth of the image are unique, particularly in the most popular finish –Gloss.  Alumini has the ability to make vibrant and colourful photography stand out and create a real impact. Alumini is the perfect print for landscapes, portraits, and high key photography.  (*) Note: Whilst the Alumini is weather and moisture resistant, direct and permanent sunlight may fade the print, so keep the prints out of strong direct sunlight. Images printed with the Alumini or MetalPrint process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight
