What quality are the images?
Images from Season 2016 and forward are 18mp JPG format. The quality is excellent and suitable for print and enlargement.
Due to space limitations we DO NOT offer images in RAW format.
Do you offer special pricing or services for groups?
For groups of ten or more riders, we are happy to offer a discount coupon code. Group Organizers should use our contact page to request a coupon code for your group. Purchase is subject to minimum requirements for coupon to be valid. Codes should be requested BEFORE purchase as we are unable to offer refunds after purchase.
Do you offer images for press or journalists?
Due to licensing issues, we are unable to provide free images for use in print or elsewhere on the Internet. We believe our pricing is affordable and fair.
FotoThunder images are licensed for personal use only and are copyright StreetSafari, Inc.

How do I request to remove an image?
All images on FotoThunder.com are taken in public spaces, with appropriate permissions. We do, however, remove images upon request. Please use our Contact page to request the removal.
YOU MUST BE SPECIFIC about the images you want removed. Please provide the date, time, page number and image number. Be aware that images may not be removed immediately during our peak summer season when we are the most busy.
DO NOT BE RUDE. It is unnecessary and does not make us work faster.
