To create your unique work of art, all I need from you is a good photograph. Some are easier to work with than others; the better the photo, the better the final artwork.
Please send me LARGE images. Anything less than 1000 pixels is probably too small: I won’t be able to see enough detail to make a beautiful artwork. If you zoom into your photograph and it starts to look pixilated quickly, then it’s probably too small. If the photograph was taken with a camera phone, it’s probably too small.
Please send me CLEAR images. If your photograph is blurry, it’s not suitable for a drawing or painting. My style is extremely precise, so the more detail I can see, the better.
Please send me WELL LIT images. If your photograph is very shadowy, or was taken with a flash, it’s unlikely to work well for a drawing or painting. Photographs taken in natural light tend to have far better colour and clarity.
If you are unsure if your images will work, or you are having trouble choosing between them, please feel free to email them to me. I am happy to answer any questions you have and offer my expertise to help you find the perfect image for your personal work of art.
If you live within a 50 km radius of Amsterdam, I can come to your home to take the photographs myself. I have training in photography, and know exactly what I need to produce the best end result. Please contact me for a price list.
I can also offer you a very special deal with popular studio photographer, Rudi Wells Fotographie. His pin-sharp, luminous photographs match my own drawing and painting style perfectly.
