Privacy Policy

Upon your request, we will either remove a photo from the website or blur a person from a photo at our discretion. Optionally, if you wish, we can put the photos in a password protected gallery. Please provide the gallery, the image number(s), your relationship to the person and send your request to jeff @ JeffSimsPhoto.com . This is not an absolute guarantee as team photos, for example, may have already been paid for, etc, resulting in a costly reshoot...however, in all cases, we will try to find an amenable solution.


General Policies

  • The text you see on the images will not show up in prints or in the digital downloads.
  • Donations. I frequently donate photos to schools and non-profit organizations. Please contact me directly( jeff @ JeffSimsPhoto.com ).
  • I generally keep photos on the website for at least one year. However, my goal is to keep originals of the online files for at least 3-6 months after they are put online. The online images are compressed and/or cropped. I frequently but do not always keep an original of the photo, but due to the massive number of photos I now have, you should contact me within 30-60 days of the end of a season if you want to discuss options for the image in question.
  • Many photos are already cropped on the website and would not be suitable as a large print. Contact me if you wish me to look at the file first.
  • I will recrop or crop a photo to a specific size at no extra charge if it is possible. Original files ( the very large ones ) may be available for some of the photos. Please contact me for availability and pricing if applicable.
