P O R T R A I T   P R O C E D U R E  &  P R I C E S	

Typical steps in the portrait procedure include:

  • A meeting with the client to discuss setting, pose, mood and any details or symbolism you may wish to include. We will also need to discuss where the portrait is to hang in order to figure out the proper dimensions and what type of composition will best fit that scale.

  • We will then schedule/have a photo shoot, which will take approximately 1 – 2 hours. Portraits from life are also possible if the client can arrange the time for sittings.

  • A 1/3 deposit is necessary to begin the portrait process.

  • I will compose several digital compositions for you to choose from, and send these images via email for your approval. We will then make any adjustments necessary until we come up with an agreed upon image(s) to work from.

  • I will then start the painting/ drawing, which could take as little as two weeks to several months depending on size, medium and complexity.

  • The remaining balance is due upon completion and acceptance of the portrait.


Average Prices range from $500 - $10,000
