FAUX OIL PORTRAITS
Faux-oil portraits are casual photographic portraits that have been processed with Corel software to resemble oil paintings. Close examination will even reveal “brushstrokes.” To complete the illusion, the image is printed on stretched canvas.
Price of Individual Faux Oil Portrait: $100 (8" x 10")
A shooting fee of $100 is due before the shoot commences and compensates the artist for his time. A presentation print (8"x 10" on stretched canvas, ready to hang without the necessity of a frame) is our gift to you. Additional prints of the same type (that is to say, faux oil on canvas) can be ordered later.
Price of Group Faux Oil Portrait: $195 (11" x 14")
For group portraits (portraits of more than one individual), we charge an additional $95. The same applies to animals. Group portraits and portraits with animals in them often take longer than one hour; so set aside plenty of time. Your portraitist will not quit until he is fully satisfied. The presentation print we deliver will be 11" x 14" (rather than 8" x 10") on stretched canvas ready to hang without the necessity of a frame.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not show proofs for clients to choose from. We are not traditional photographers, who, after all, seem to consider themselves to be mere tradesmen, or at best, artisans. We, like Rembrandt, Goya, and Sargent, are portrait artists. Our preferred medium just happens to be photography. We insist upon choosing the exposure that we can be most proud to sign our names to. Outtakes will be permanently deleted.
