Please contact me with your requirements and I will be happy to provide a quote.
Once the quote is accepted, a 50% deposit is required for the work to commence. The average lead time is 2-4 weeks. I will advise you of the lead time at the time of quoting.
I always find I get the best results in a portrait when I have met the pet and taken several photos. This is also the case when I do portraits of people. It helps me connect with the subject as I am painting/drawing. For subjects within a 50km range I charge $45 for this service. Outside of this area, please ask for a quote.
If you have a particular photo that you would like your portrait based on, please ensure it is a clear photo. (jpeg or pdf)
I look forward to discussing your project with you soon.
