We loved your pictures!! Great dolphin pics, especially the first one when you were a kid. - Marilyn | www.mmxhaust.com, Mon, 23 Jun 2008 11:36AM
Hi I am making a self financed video on fishing, and I need shots of people cranking on fish in harnesses or chairs asd i discuss that very briefly. I can guarantee, and will prove with free copy of a DVD sent to you upon completion, that any shots used will be shown only in passing for about 8 seconds total in a video that will be at least 40 min. long.If I can use any of your photos I will put credit for you in my video and send you 20 bucks per photo. How does that sound? The video is going to the editor soon so if you can get back to me ASAP that would be great. Tx! Jon - Jon Schwartz, Tue, 24 Oct 2006 10:45PM
I just saw your post on the Fla sportsman forum with that huge dolphin at #54. great pics!!
