METHOD OF WORKING
The process of making a portrait always begins with a discussion. Consideration is given to all the elements that the picture might eventually contain. I generally require 3- 8 sittings and prefer to work entirely from life but I do realise that the sitter may not always be able to make the necessary commitment and so I am prepared to make use of photographic reference.
I am not currently registered for VAT.
