To view and purchase win photos, fllow these instructions provided by David:

Go to my website:
**make sure you are at the correct site**
(you should see my name and a camera lens on the front page).
Scroll down to "Official Win Photos" button.
Click on that and it will take you to the SHOOTPROOF site.
Find the GRCA or Paws & Claws logo, and click on that gallery.
Then you can navigate to the specific day you had the photos taken and view and purchase right there.

**NOTE** Some photos may have been taken at a different time than the day they were judged, if the handler could not get to the photo area on the same day, so if you do not see your win shot on tuesday for example, you may have to scroll through the other days to find your win photo.
If you still are having any trouble or cannot find your pic, please contact me directly through email
One last and very important thing. Anyone wanting reprints or extra copies of a photo they ordered, MUST contact me directly for discounted pricing. The shootproof website does not do discounts. Thanks and hope everyone had a good national.
