Thank you for your visit to our Dance and Sports Photography Website. We live in busy times, so we appreciate your interest in our company and for taking the time to read over our letter.
We are "Fred's Photography, established in Tillsonburg Ontario since 1973". Our studio has specialized in many forms of photography for over 35 years but Dance and Sports photography has been our driving force for the last 25. We specialize in Skating, Dancing, Gymnastics, Hockey and all types of sports photography.
Due to the changing times we have found that our clients needs have changed also. Some want more options, some want less. We have developed a few different options that we hope will satisfy everyone. We would like to acquaint you with what we have to offer.
Below is a quick description:
Option 1: Selling at the Year-End Shows: If you choose this option we will photograph ALL Individuals and ALL Groups on a specified picture day. We process the best shots and return the finished packages to carnival/recital or any year-end-show; giving parents/participants the option to purchase the packages or not. This method has the quickest turn around time, requiring only a few days to complete. Our Standard Package for this option consists of 1 5x7 Group, 1 5x7 Individual and 4 4x6 Individual photographs. In the case of a Solo you receive 2 5x7 Individual's (different pose) and 4 4x6 Individual photographs. A reorder form accompanies each purchase which lists additional items such as collages, key chains, etc. that you may purchase at a later time if you choose.
Here are some examples of our multiple pre-sell packages.
The Pre-Paid Option #2 is similar to Pre-Paid Option # 1, the big difference being that it also includes many additional items from our reorder list such as buttons, fridge magnets, key chains and 4 different collages. In addition to this you will also be able to purchase anything from wallets to enlargements and posters. These packages also include tax and require 6 to 8 weeks for delivery.
With Pre Paid options 1 and 2 the photographs and packages can be delivered to the club for distribution or if you wish we can add $4.00 to each order and ship the photographs directly to the customer's home. For the customers convenience we have three methods of payment: Debit, Credit Card, Amex or Cash. Sorry we do NOT accept personal checks.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and for your interest in our photography.

We still love doing weddings. You know you have established a good name when you find yourself photographing the wedding of the children of a couple who's wedding you photographed 25 or 30 years ago. It's all about treating people right.
