The first stage is to choose your photos. You need to look for a good quality photo with a lot of detail, good lighting and a pleasing angle of the subject(s). This is a very important part of the portrait process so please check out the guild on choosing a good photo.
Once I have seen your photographs and we have discussed your portraits you are ready to place your order. Please read my terms and conditions. I do require a 50% deposit before I start your picture. The remainder is due upon completion. Payments maybe made cash or Credit/Debit card via Paypal.
Size and Color
1) Choose your size and 2) black & white or color. I offer a number of different sizes from small to large, your choice many depend on the number of subjects in your portraits and your budget. If you would like multiple loved ones in your portrait I offer a guide as to the best size for your portrait.
Portrait Progress and Completion
Once I begin working on your portrait I will keep in touch with you via regular emails where you will be able to see your portrait progress throughout it's stages. This will give you the opportunity to make comments along the way and see how your portrait is coming together. many of my portraits are viewed on Fb and Instagram unless it is a surprise gift.
Once you have several photos together and decide upon the size you are interested in, please contact me with your requirements, and attach your photos in the email.Please also mention if you have any specific deadlines such as a birthday or anniversary. Please note, I will try to meet your special occasion but I usually have a waiting list.
