What Type of Photo to Send
PLEASE SEND A PHOTO: that’s fairly large and close up, so that I can see enough DETAIL within the face. The best photos are those that I can enlarge up to the same scale as the portrait I am working on without the photo becoming too unclear or blurry. I will then have enough detail to make a good portrait. Photos taken on a digital camera (and ideally emailed straight through to me) are ideal, but I also accept photos taken on phone cameras as long as they are sharp and give me as much detail as possible. Daylight is always best as photos taken in artificial light may be grainy. If you only have a printed photo and not a digital file, please send these to me so I can see the quality. I will send it back to you, once I’ve completed the portrait. Please go to commissioning a portrait to read more information on photo advice. You’ll also find answers in the FAQ page. Please also feel free to email me any queries you have.
