I prefer to photograph your dog or cat at your home where your pet is most comfortable. I can also work from your existing photographs. If you don't live in the Central New York [Syracuse] area, I suggest that you photograph your pet using 400 speed film, or high resolution digital photography. Try to capture facial detail and expression to show your pet's personality. It's important to get a close and clear shot of your pet filling about 1/3 of the frame with your pet's face, neck and shoulders. The quality of the photographs you send to me is critical to the accuracy and quality of the finished portrait. Please email me to arrange a photo session, for details about working from an existing photograph, or with any questions about taking new photographs of your pet. Custom pet portraits vary in price according to size, number of subjects, and the complexity of the overall composition. Simple head studies, for example, are more affordable than a complex work with a full background and more than one subject. For pricing, please contact me directly. Also, I may increase the canvas size at no additional charge as long as no specific size requirements have been indicated by you at the time the commission is agreed upon (i.e. we may decide that an 18 x 24 inch painting works better with the composition than an 18 x 20 inch painting). When I accept a commission, I require a 50% deposit prior to the start of the project, half of which is non-refundable. When the painting is completed- I then send a copy of the painting to the client via the internet or mail. At this time, the client can either accept the painting or reccommend desired changes to be made. The changes are then implemented and a new copy is sent. When the painting is accepted- I then require that the remaining balance be sent. Upon reciept of payment in full- I will then send the painting out immediately. Charges for professional packing, shipment and required insurance will be additional, priced at my cost.
