Why is there a big 'Sacred Images'
printed across all of the pictures?
The Sacred Images imprint that you see on all of the pictures is simply a watermark. It allows me to post larger pictures for you to see, without having to worry about people using the copyrighted pictures without permission.
Any image purchased from the web site will not include the 'Sacred Images' watermark.
When I go through the check out process I see there
is another choice instead of credit cards. What is Paypal?
Paypal is another way of paying by using your credit card.
Your credit card number is never sent to the merchant; only paypal gets the
information. It works great and there is no charge to you for their services.
You can also send them a check or money order and establish a balance with
them that way.
What's the catch? When people pay a seller, the money sits
in a non-interest bearing account until it's withdrawn - they collect that interest.
That's where they make their money. You can use this service to pay a business
or an individual.
If you order through paypal, you'll get a receipt from them
confirming your payment. At the same time, I will be notified of your payment.
If you would like to open a PayPal account, you can go to www.paypal.com
Why are the prints the same price whether they are
matted or not?
Originally only the matted photographs were available for purchase, but
some customers expressed interest in having the unmatted prints shipped
to them to allow for custom matting. The unmatted prints are processed
with the same attention to detail as the matted photographs, are placed
in a protective sleeve and are sent in similar shipping containers. Because
of this, the cost for an unmatted print is the same as for the matted

Why did you pick the name Sacred Images?
Responses from people who have viewed these images invariably includes a comment
on the sacred or spiritual feelings that the images convey.
Photography, to me, has been a spiritual experience. Being
in the moment to capture not only an image, but the miracles
of creation that we often pass without a glance. Many people
have asked, "how did you get this picture?" I tell them it
was a gift, a blessing for me to capture on film to share
with others. I accept the gifts and share them so that others
might stop for a moment and appreciate the beauty of creation
be it created by God, or created by man.
About this website:
The creation of Sacred Images has been a labor of love. It
has been a family collaboration from the beginning. The web
site designer, Marc Staut, is the son of the photographer.
Without the love, inspiration,dedication, and creative talents
of Marc and BraveNetWorld,
this project would still be but a dream. Love has many voices
and this is Marc's song for me.
