A: Listen to me grasshopper, I am here to answer your questions... ...unfortunately, our relationship is likely to be only through this FAQ. Here's why...

First, I'm happy to talk with the media, or those interested in buying my photography. Why? Because this helps contribute to putting food on the table, and memory cards in my camera!

Second, I have already put a lot of work into this FAQ, and I bet your question is already answered in it somewhere. I mention this on my list of my pet e-mail peeves.

If you really have a need to email me, look at the contact information on my contact page. But I'm sorry to warn you ahead of time that I'm likely not going to have time to respond to casual queries.

One final hint on e-mail. I get a whole lot of spam, and if your e-mail looks like spam it will probably get junked by me or my email filters. Make sure your e-mail subject line is relevant. Title your e-mail message something like "A question about my pitcher plant." E-mail with a subject line like any of the following is likely to get deleted.

"I've been thinking about you"
"Hey! You have to read this!"
"Important business proposition"
"Why don't you e-mail back?"
"Get bigger"
"I've got an important question"
