I have some great pictures from them. You can call them and negotiate the price you are willing to pay. I bought 3 pictures for what I thought was a good price.

How could these phucks still be in business?
I read the other thread. They should be strung up by their balz.

I used them twice now over the years. Never had one issue with them and they always did what they said they were going to do. Never had a bit of trouble at all. I don't honestly know what all these threads are about? These guys make a living taking hard to get photos of boats from a chopper. Put a price on that.

Talked with a lady at Boatpix, said I didn't need a Credit Card to look at the pictures they took...she did say I would have to wait a few weeks for the pics to get to her before she could send them via email. I'll update along the way.

I bought 2 pics from them, paid 100$ for one and 75$ for the other,

you just have to play by there rules, i amagine they have been screwed 10000000 times by guys getting proofs or the pics and just scanning or making more copies,

granted, im sure they have f'ed their fair share of undeserving people as well, i say play by there rules, but there rules are a little one sided too......

Make sure you correspond by e-mail and get everything in writing!!!

What they said. I had a good experience with them....and paid less than half of what $$ they wanted! I said do you want something for the pictures ....or nothing for the pictures, it's your choice!!!

I've also had multiple experiences with them since 1998, no issues for me.

They just sent me some pics, I thought they sucked! Might as well have been taken from the top of a pontoon boat. I paid 25 bucks and sent them back.
