The pics were not bad but not great either except for the price list on the enclosed price sheet.

Remember at this point the company sent the pics to me on their own. Nice gift. NOT. Next thing I know another contact from this company stating either return the pics, pay, or be taken to court.

I will leave it to educated guess as to which company this was.

Found it a very ammusing way of conducting business!

Take Care.

Be Careful.

If they actually send You pictures in the mail and you never requested them they are yours to keep
Federal law prohibits them from enforcing any payment on unsolicited mailings and are then considered a gift
they may threaten but they know they cant do anything about it

Thumbs up

BOATPIX requires a credit card to see pictures and we've done it this way since about 2006. From 1991 to 2005 you simply had to sign your name or request pictures online. Some folks would forget that they signed with ink or with an ip address. If anyone wants to suggest a poker run for us send me an email at [email protected]. Coincidentally, we are in Key West this week with a helicopter. Meet you at Sloppy Joes!

There is a previous post that lists some incorrect pricing and some opinions. Our pricing is clearly listed on the website. We are the least expensive helicopter boat photography business in the world. Also, the largest.

I had a line for six straight hours of people buying pictures at a poker run tonight. This is pretty normal for us. Guess you didn't make it? We have a happy and fun business.

i have boat pixs pics hanging on my office wall from 2 of my boats. they were not cheap, but what in boating is? and i wanted them. they also cost less than the airplane picture of our house my wife bought from a guy coming door to door with pics. also agree classy not to post pics of Cumberland crash in that post.

Yeah, was at a Poker Run, got pics in the mail, not the greatest but fair pics, too expensive for that level of shots, sent them back... The end.
