Portfolio Notes:

All of my photographs began life on color negative film using my beloved Mamiya RZ-67, which is a medium format portrait camera. My compositions do not originate as a digital file. I used to spend countless hours in a traditional darkroom dealing with the limits of exposure time, chemicals and light. That was the height of technology.

Today, using Lightroom, I now have all the time I need to document what I see in my gardens in their truest colors. I can honestly say that the colors and complexities of light have never been better. I produce my compositions using archival pigment-based Epson UltraChrome inks on acid-free, photo luster paper.

Matted, or Framed Compositions
Framed option for local Wisconsin delivery only.)

In order to spend more time gardening, and creating new compositions, with this portfolio I am concluding my matting and framing activities and leaving that to the frame shops.

As a result, my matted (M-14, M-20, M-28) and framed (F-20, F-28) compositions are now limited in number. These are first quality, new compositions.

Also, since I am no longer exhibiting at art festivals, I've lowered my prices a bit.

My Framed Option includes my frame standard for over 30 years: Nielsen Aluminum in Frosted Silver, and is covered in my preferred archival anti-reflective glass: TruVue UltraView.

NEW: Artist Signed Print-Only Compositions:


For the first time, with this portfolio, I’m offering my compositions as an archival quality, artist signed print! These are the exact same prints that I use in my matted work.

Among the Benefits:

• Working with a frame shop, you can select your own mat color to match the composition as you prefer, and then tie all of that with your frame style.

Your Package Will Include:

1) A copy of my Frame Shop Notes (see image link below, or Click here to view PDF), which will provide your frame shop with my precise window mat opening and position dimensions for the cover mat. These are optional, of course, but specific to maching my mat (if you desire to match my traditional mat, see information listed in the Matted or Framed section, above).

2) A full color Window Crop Reference Guide, matched to each of your print-only photos. Simply give one copy to your Framer to provide an exact visual reference and keep a copy for yourself (see image link below). Please note: My window mat dimensions overlap the printed area of the composition just a wee bit. This was a subjective decision on my part and is further explained in the section below about Mats, Frames andDry Mounting photographs.

Frame shops cut window openings and mount prints regularly, so this is a very common process.

This is a common way for shipping prints and framing shops are familiar with this. Rolling prints does not kink or hurt the paper.

# End How to Order Section 1 #



I will package and fulfill your order with the same care and attention to detail as you will find in my photographs!

In the unlikely event that a package arrives damaged through shipping, which has also damaged the contents, I and/or FedEx or USPS will cover the costs of replacement, including shipping the original back and reshipping a replacement of the original item(s) ordered.

In order to expedite this, you must contact me within the first 24 hours of receiving the package. You can do this either by phone: 262-478-7335, or by email at: jillbedfordportfolio@gmail.com

Working together, we will make arrangements for the package to be inspected by the carrier in order to expedite the replacement process.


Completed Shipments:

Assuming there is no damage to the photographic contents caused by the original shipper, the limits to the insurance of the original contents ends when the package reaches its shipping destination, whether left at the destination or signed for by a recipient. Beyond that time, I am not responsible for damages or mishandling caused by others or circumstances that are beyond my control, including environmental-related damages, theft or others.


Returns With and Without an Exchange:
If you are returning with or without an exchange you are responsible for the return shipping costs, including required insurance, in addition to the original shipping cost, which is not refundable. We make a sincere effort to pre-confirm your order prior to shipping, including confirmation of all: Image-numbers, Image-names, Matted size. Please note the difference between matted size and "window opening," or "viewable image area," which is smaller than the stated mat size (see above notes under: "Matted Only Compositions.") To help confirm your order, we may also use "thumbnail" images sent via email to confirm the compositions being ordered.

In the event that we mistakenly ship you the wrong product, as previously confirmed prior to shipping, we will cover the cost of shipping the original items back to our studio, and then reship the previously confirmed items back to you at our expense. In all other instances, I may charge back an additional handling fee. In order for the refund to process, the contents being returned must arrive in their original condition. Your credit card will be refunded the balance through our bankcard processor. Please see Return Packaging Requirements below.


Return Packaging Requirements:  

Via email, I will provide you with complete return instructions, including specific boxing requirements that must be followed in order to meet the terms of my returns and exchange policy. You must use either a UPS Store or a FedEx Office Store to professionally repackage the contents, or have them check that the package is secure using the original box. You must also insure your return package for the full amount originally paid.

FedEx Offered Delivery Options:

About the FedEx Signature Requirement:

Most customers prefer that I DO NOT include a delivery "Signature Requirement," so I make that optional at an additional fee charged by FedEx. Let me know if you would like this service and I will be happy to add it onto your order.

If you choose this option, however, you agree to be fully responsible for any steps necessary to receive the package with a signature.

Your package will only be delivered at your location based on one of three additional FedEx signature options:

1) Indirect Signature Required;

2) Adult Signature Required (requires proof of ID); and,

3) Direct Signature Required.

You may read more about what each option entails by visiting the FedEx website and selecting: FedEx signature requirements and delivery options link.

Keep in mind that if a package is returned to me because it was not properly signed for, you are responsible for both the original and return shipping cost. I will deduct the fees from your original payment and a new shipping fee must be prepaid in order to reship the package.


State Sales Tax Policy:

For Internet-based orders (outside the state of Wisconsin), we do not charge state sales tax. The purchaser is responsible for paying any applicable state and local sales taxes.


Sales Tax Terms for Art Fair and Local (On-Site) Sales:
We charge and pay the applicable state sales tax to the local taxing authority for each transaction after 72 hours of the originating transaction. Once we have already paid the state taxing authority we are unable to reimburse the sales tax amount to you. We are not a large company that can afford to absorb such additional costs. Thank you for your understanding.

ABOUT Mat Size, Frame Size and Dry Mounting a Photograph:

If you are new to matting and framing, my photographs and the mat boards that I use are composed of 100% acid-free materials. This choice is considered the gold standard for archival purposes and is followed by museums.

With the addition of a frame, both of the mats are fitted into the frame's internal dimensions, which are matched to the external dimensions of the outer mat boards. The frame traditionally includes enough room to fit other components, such as protective glass and/or additional mat boards.

The top mat includes a cut out area called the Window through which the photograph is displayed. To keep the photograph flat and fixed into place, it is drymounted to the bottom mat using a special adhesive process. A protective shield of glass is usually placed on top of the window mat and fitted into the frame.

The size and position of a window opening is based on a subjective decision. I prefer a slight amount of the top mat window to overlap my prints.

Mat dimensions (which by convention start with the named visual width of the composition looking at it from left-to-right: W x H) refers to the outer dimensions of the mat required to fit into a specific frame size. Note: My three mat sizes are standard sizes (measured in "inches"), making them easy to locate in frame stores. My M-14 is fitted to a 14" x 11" frame; M-20 to a 20" x 16" frame; and, M-28 to a 28" x 22" frame.
