FAQ


What sport photography do you specialize in?

My first passion is taking photos of Rugby Union, but I have a proven track record of photographing all sorts of sports and sporting events.

What other sports would you consider photographing?

Any sport

Where are you based?

I'm based in Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire, Wales. I travel across Mid Wales and South Wales taking photographs of all kinds of sports events.

Do you take commissions for bespoke photos?

Yes, I will consider photographing most things (as long as it's legal and decent!)

Do you take photos of Junior Rugby?

Yes, but only if I have permission from the management of the teams, and the parents are informed that a photographer is present. I am fully CRB checked.

My club has a web site. Can we use your images on it for free?

I usually allow clubs to have a number of free photos for use on their web site. In return I ask that each photo is credited to me with a hyperlink back to http://www.alfiepics.com.

What paper and finish do you use for your photographs?

The printers that I use, only use the highest quality FujiFilm Crystal Archive photographic paper and Kodak Ultra Premium Photo Paper, which produces prints that are guaranteed fade resistant for 150 years for Fuji and 132 years for Kodak ! Fuji boasts that their paper gives improved whiteness, combined with excellent highlight and shadow depth qualities. This paper finish will either be gloss or matt unless paper finish is specified via e-mail. All photographs are supplied with a white border for ease of handling.

Do you guarantee picture quality?

Due to the nature of some of the events outside on very dull days or indoors under electric light, this can sometimes effect the quality, but the majority are excellent. Every print is checked for quality and if I feel they are not of a good enough standard, I will advise you and reimburse the fee.

How long do I have wait for my photographs?

From receipt of order your photos will normally take between seven and fourteen days to arrive. I will send a confirmation by email when your prints are dispatched.

What size photograph will I receive for web and social use?

Due to the nature of the internet the size of photograph will be 500px x 333px and the quality is 72, these images are optimised to load more effectively on any web browser. They are by no means printing quality. The licence is for web and social internet use and is limited to those genres, any breaches of this licence may incur further charges from Alfiepics under copyright.

What license do you give with internet images?

The purchaser has a sole licence for web and social internet use and is limited to those genres, any breaches of this licence may incur further charges from Alfiepics under copyright. Each image will also have a copyright mark at the bottom of the photograph for tracking purposes.
