Commonly Asked Questions
Why can't you use my photos?
I have a lighting style and look specific to creating my art. Often your photo doesn't have enough pixels for printing, or the lighting isn't right, or the background is too cluttered. Besides, I love working with your dog!
How long does the sitting take?
Photographed in your home - from start to finish no more than 2 hours.
What if I have More than one dog?
One dog. Two dog. Same sitting fee of $375. Add $40 for each additional pet.
What should I do to prepare?
I need about 7 feet of space for my backdrop and lighting. I can help clear a small space when I come! If you walk your dog it's a good thing to do before I come so that they are less active. Other than that, have some treats on hand.
How much artwork do i have to buy?
Sitting fee includes a finished 10 x 10" piece. Whatever else you want to buy is ala carte and totally up to you. Please see the rates for more info.
How exactly do you create your art?
I start with my photos shot against plain grey. I add all the color work afterward - first digitally to establish a color base, and then add paint, gels, and textures on the piece that is mounted to a wood panel. It is finished with a varnish or in some cases wax. Each piece is one of a kind!
What if my dog is deceased?
I'm so sorry - it's so hard! For a great memorial piece consider my offer on the In Memorium page under details. In that case I will work with your images.
Do you travel outside Atlanta?
I can and will make special arrangements to travel outside the metro Atlanta area. Please ask for a quote for travel.
