Tips For Photographing
Your Pet or Horse for a portrait painting
You've decided to have me paint your pet or horse's portrait.
A very special portrait that will capture the essence of your pet,
a painting that will keep their memory alive forever.
A piece of fine art that you are paying to have created.
To create the most perfect portrait of your pet, it all comes down
to the quality of photos that I will be using!
For me to create a portrait that both you and I are delighted and thrilled with, I require well lit, in-focus photos with lots of close-up detail. (The only exception is if the animal has passed on, then I will work with the photos that are available.)
Sometimes my clients have a treasured photo that they really love, and I will always try my very best to work from that photo to create a beautiful portrait that's special for you.
But where ever possible I prefer to create pet portraits from photos I have taken. I am available for a photo shoot at a reasonable price (please contact me for details of my fees).
If I'm not able to photograph your pet myself, I have to rely on the photos that you provide. However, please realize that the portrait I create will only be as good as the photos I have to work with.
To help you to take the best photos of your pet for a portrait, I've created an informative, easy to read tip sheet in a pdf format:
