|I have always
considered a portrait to be something different than a happy snap
enlarged into a print that can be framed and hung on the wall.
At one time I specialised exclusively in
portraits. It wasn't until I saw one of my early canvas prints
exhibited as a bridal portrait that I realised my definition of a
portrait was a little different than most people's.
I guess we (Professional Photographers in general)
have a need to separate our styles from each other or we all run the
risk of turning our craft into a price driven commodity that has the
potential to destroy the creativity of the craft.
Already, wedding photography has been hit hard by
those who still think a portrait is just a picture of someone and
because of that, supplying hundreds (even thousands) of them for a
cheap price is the way to become a serious professional.
Be that as it may... There are still those of us
who create art as a photograph and still find clients who appreciate
that art such as the portrait on the left, is not something you get
at a shopping centre photo booth.
My first paying portrait was taken in 1961. Since
then I'm pleased to say, I've honed my craft to a point where my
portraits can be identified as unique portraits.
Canvas portraits in a faux charcoal or any of the
other styles I have developed are available as canvas or archival
paper prints (or digital image files for overseas clients) starting
at 11" x 14" up to life size in colour or black & white.
You supply the image, I'll create the art starting
at $260 per person in the frame. If you wish, I'll take the
photograph for a sitting fee starting at $160 per person, depending
where it is.
