M. H. Kipling trading as Mike Kipling Photography trading address is 1 Weardale, Guisborough, Cleveland TS14 8JL to where all correspondence and orders should be sent. Prints are sold by mail order only and this is the only service provided to private customers. All other services are business to business only. At this stage we only supply UK addresses. All orders are dispatched by first class recorded delivery post. All orders are dispatched in strong 75mm diameter card tubes. Orders for prints can only be made at this stage by post and prepaid by cheque in pounds sterling. All print prices include return postage. Please specify a delivery address where someone can sign for receipt. Although virtually all images are available to purchase as prints a few images are not available. You can check in advance by email. If we receive an order where we are unable to supply the photograph you will be contacted to select an alternative or your payment will be returned in full.

Turnaround Times

Print orders are immediately placed with the processor upon receipt and this usually takes three to four working days to print. Orders are dispatched within 24 hours of completion by the processor. On average we expect your print order to be with you within a week of us receiving your order although at peak periods please allow up to 21 days. You will receive an email notification as soon as the order is received. Unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for delays by the Royal Mail. However, if after two weeks after the order has been acknowledged you have not received your print please contact us. If the Royal Mail cannot confirm delivery we will re-print and re-dispatch at no cost to the customer.


At this stage Mike Kipling Photography is not VAT registered so VAT is not added to or included to the price of prints.

Payment Methods

Payment can only made by sterling cheque. Please note that we are under no obligation to accept any order placed by you and we will not be treated as having accepted any such order until you have received confirmation from us that we have done so. This confirmation will be by e-mail.

Refund policy

In the unlikely event that we are not able to fulfil your order then you will receive a full refund of your cheque. All prints are carefully checked before dispatch. If there is an error in fulfilment of your order then please contact us and we will correct the error or refund as necessary.
