Q. How do I go about reserving a future date?

A. There is no need to reserve a special date. Joe tries to take a sunrise photo every day. You can call to make sure he goes though.

Q. What if it is a rainy day?

A. Joe takes a photo even if the conditions do not favor a clear sunrise. Some of the most dramatic photos are taken on days when a sunrise is not anticipated :-) Many people still choose a photo from a cloudy day, since waves and a gentle light upon the water still captures the essence of someone's special day.

Gift givers and recipients often express their extreme pleasure with a photo, even a cloudy day, and especially for the birth of a child as: "After all, it is their first day on Earth. How special is that?" says one recent giver.

To capture the moment on a cloudy day when the sunrise isn't visible, Joe coordinates the sunrise using data from the US Naval Observatory Website http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astronomical-applications/data-services/rs-one-day-us

 to approximate the time the sun comes up.

Q. How do I pick the photo I want?

A. Joe takes several photos each day. Simply inquire about the availability of additional photos taken on a particular day, and Joe can mail you a few additional images.

Q. How far back are the photos in Joe's sunrise library?

A. Joe has all of 2007 (except for 3 days in Oct), 2006 and 2005 (with the exception of 4 days in 2005), most of 2004, and an additional archive that goes back to January 1, 2002.

Q. Is there an extra charge if I request a specific date?

A. No, there isn't an extra charge for requesting a photo for a certain date.

Q. How quickly can I get my photo?

A. That depends. Prints and matted prints usually ship in a day or two. Just let us know the check is in the mail! Priority mail usually takes 2-3 days in the mail. Express Mail overnight delivery is an option for a premium charge by the Post Office.

Q. Does Joe always take the photo from the same spot?

A. Normally he takes a sunrise photo from someplace on Plum Island.

Q. If I order a photo and there is no sunrise that day, am I obligated to purchase something?

A. Absolutely not.

Q. Does Joe ever travel to another beach to take a photo, if requested?

A. This used to be an option, but it no longer fits into the schedule with work and the cost of travel is somewhat prohibitive.

Q. What if I don't like the photo you send me once I get it?

A. Simply return it for a refund of the cost of the item and any sales tax. (Shipping charges are not refunded.)

Q. What if my photo is damaged in transit?

A. Simply return it and it will be replaced. Please call to make arrangements. If it was insured save all packing materials so we can file a claim.

Q. What type of paper is used for the photo prints?

A. Joe uses Epson premium photo paper. As with all artwork, photos are best preserved under glass and away from direct sunlight and should be matted to prevent contact with the glass.

Q. How are the pictures signed and dated?

A. Inscriptions are on the mat. Prints do not normally have an inscription but one can be requested. The standard format on the mat is, for example:


Sunrise                May 1, 2004             #/100 Joe Gerry


However, if there is something special you'd like, for example "Our Wedding Day" or "Happy Retirement" or "Tyler's First Day on Earth" or even just "1/100" with Joe's signature, that's fine, too. Contact Joe for other inscription samples from other customers.

Q. Are special frame options available?

A. Framing options have become an issue in CT due to increased prices and typical wait of two weeks for a frame to be ordered and have it arrive to be assembled. If possible, an option is to purchase a matted print and buy a standard size frame to fit. 5 by 7 inch matted prints fit in any 8 by 10 inch frame and 8 by 10 inch prints fit in any 11 by 14 inch frame.

Q. Does Joe take photos other than sunrises?

A. Yes. There will someday be a 'non-sunrise' gallery on this web site. For a sampling now, see Services.

Q. Is there a brochure that you can mail to someone who doesn't have the Internet?

A. We have not updated the brochure in a while, but we would be happy to send a copy of the original one.
