These are gigantic MULTI MEDIA websites that are getting over 40 million hits a year (2012).

Our high-resolution photos and video movies may have problems loading on slow Internet connections — the solution is to give the pictures time to load or get broadband (cable, satellite or DSL). We are hosted with webmasters.com in Florida (USA). Any problems may be temporary anomalies with hosting servers or data routes between your computer and Florida.

Our large movies will REQUIRE the Apple® QuickTime® player DOWNLOAD FREE for Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista.

Light, washed out looking pictures, or

If you are using a Mac computer (and my pictures look washed out), your monitor is profiled at 1.8 gamma — the fix is to set your monitor gamma to 2.2.

If my pictures look super saturated, especially in the REDS), you are using a wide-gamut monitor — here is the problem explained and how to fix.

I publish only sRGB on the Web and embed ICC profiles in very few images — if you are opening photos off my websites in Photoshop® the correct move will be to ASSIGN sRGB profile to see my professional true color.

I RECOMMEND USING FIREFOX and setting its FULL COLOR MANAGEMENT Value 1 for the best color experience.
