General procedures :

  • I take 30% of the commission upfront for materials investment and it is non-refundable, other 70% due upon delivery.
  • I prefer to work from life. 3 sessions for 2 – 3 hours each puts a great base to a portrait which I can conclude from photos. 
  • If live presence is not possible the commission can be done entirely using photo references. I prefer to take my own reference photos with my Nikon d810. I strongly insist on working from references I personally took to ensure proper composition, good lighting, color accuracy, and high degree of resolution.
  • In cases when it is impossible to photograph the subject(s) I will work from the references you provide. The quality of my work however does partially depend on the information I collect from the references. 
  • For a painting commission from photographs I find it helpful to meet in person at least once in order to perform color studies and / or sketches from life. 

Thank you
