The Photo Shoot
Following a telephone consultation to establish timing and clothing, Andrew will photograph your chosen loved ones in his Montmorency home studio. Shooting in a mode that works with his painting style, Andrew's photo session is very simple and loads of fun. Gradually he gets to know the personality of his sitter and so will have the knowledge to be able to photograph their moods. The photo shoot generally lasts up to an hour and is over only when that special moment has been captured.
Your Photographs are displayed on our secure website
Following your portrait session your proofs are displayed on our secure website. Andrew asks that you select at least 4 images, to give him an idea of what you consider best demonstrates the personality of the sitter. We stress, this is just a guide for Andrew, as he doesn't know the sitter as well as you.
Your Family Treasure
At this time, to demonstrate your commitment, we ask for a $100 deposit and Andrew will commence your oil painting at the size (and therefore price) that you are most comfortable with. Occasionally we may ask the sitter to come back to the studio for a quick check of eye or skin colour or subtle reappraisal.
No Risk Guarantee
With our portrait paintings we have a no risk guarantee. When the artwork is unveiled, if for any reason you don't wish to purchase it, you have no obligation to do so. Your $100 deposit will be returned to you, no questions asked (We do however, reserve the right to exhibit and sell the artwork via an on-line gallery or any forthcoming exhibitions)
Ring us now! This no risk offer is for a limited time.
Our photo session is now free. This includes your telephone consultation, and up to an hour photo session together with your black and white proofs temporarily uploaded to our on-line gallery.
Our paintings range from $395 for a 11.5"x11.5" (295mm x 295mm) for head and shoulders only, and $950 for an 22"x22" (560mm x 560mm) at half length.
For Andrew to commence your painting a $100 deposit is required, which is refunded should you, for any reason, not wish to purchase the painting.
The black and white on-line proofs are yours to keep. These were shot as references for your painting, not as stand alone photos. They may or may not be up to Andrew's normal photo portrait quality.
Paintings take time
The paintings are in oil, so if you require them for a special occasion leave yourself time. Allow up to 6 weeks after your photo selection for delivery of your finished painting.
Andrew also hand makes exquisite modern western red cedar floating frames.
Recommend Andrew to a friend, and if they confirm a sitting before your painting is delivered we will frame your painting for free.
