Commissioning Artwork or Photography

Commissioning artwork or photography

Commissioning artwork or photography involves an initial consultation to discuss details such as image, size, medium and timescale. This initial consultation can be face to face or via Skype, email, by telephone or by post. Following this I will send an invoice with full pricing including postage and packing and estimated time frame for the commissioned work. I will also undertake photographic residencies and work for exhibition.

If you want artwork based on a photo it would be helpful to provide high resolution photographs for me to work from. For portrait commissions it is useful to have at least two sittings or more. I am happy to attend a special function or event and do initial sketches to work out the overall composition of the finished piece.

All work is sent unframed in secure packaging via courier with guaranteed next day delivery. If you require framing this can be arranged and the cost will depend on the kind of framing required. I use a bespoke framer in Buckinghamshire who will tailor frames to your needs and colour match to an existing home setting if required. I also use a well-estavblsihed framer in Oxfordshire who can frame work within a week. Choice of frame and framer is usually discussed and decided at the start of a commission.
