How to order

How To Order

Step 1 - Send me details and photos.

When you are ready and decided what you would like me to do, send me the details of the size you would like and the amount of people or pets etc you would like to have done. I will need your photos emailed to me or posted to me address if you only have hard copies. For details on what photos are suitable and what are not suitable, see "Question" section below.

Email photos to or contact me for my address if you need to post them.

Step 2 - Full Payment or deposit.

Before I can begin your portrait I would need a 50% deposit to book your portrait. You can send the payment to me either using PayPal, credit card or bank transfer (I will supply a payment invoice to you if paying via credit card or PayPal or I will send my bank details if paying via bank transfer).

Step 3 - Completion times & approval.

When I have received your photos and your deposit I will send you a digital layout, this is for your approval, any changes or amendments will be made at this stage until your 100% happy with the layout I will not start until you have approved the layout. Once approved I will start your portrait, which could take 2 - 7 days depending on the size and the amount of people are in the portrait. I will send progress updates along the way so you can see how your portrait develops.

Questions & Answers

Here I have put a few questions you may want to ask with my reply, if there is a question not listed, please feel free to contact me I will be happy to answer them.

Question - Can you combine 2 or more photos into 1 portrait?

Answer - Yes I can combine various photos together to make your portrait, however if you want the subjects to look like they are together then the photos need to be of a similar pose and similar quality ( it doesn't matter so much if you would like a montage of images fading into each other).

Question - Can you alter things in the photo?

Answer - Yes I can add or remove things from the photo within reason, for example if you wanted a child's dummy taking out of mouth, that could be done if you give me a separate picture of the child with mouth showing as I could use the mouth as reference in this photo without drawing the dummy. People can be took out of photos, backgrounds, different backgrounds added etc.

Question - What photos are suitable?

Answer - I need clear high resolution photos especially when drawing on a large scale, I can however draw from old damaged even pixelated photos as long as there is some features visable I may be able to draw from it. This however does effect overall quality of portrait as I can only draw what I can see. I only ever draw from bad quality photos as a last resort and when there is nothing else available. Photos sent by email are encouraged to send largest possible size and quality as the better the photo the better the portrait will be as I can get an accurate reading from the image and produce the fine details that bring the portrait to life.

Question - Do you offer a framing service?

Answer - Yes once your portrait is complete you can frame it yourself or I can have it framed for you, I have a large array of frames available for you to choose from.

Question - Can I purchase prints of the finished portrait?

Answer - All portrait orders get a free print with their original Freehand Portrait, additional prints are available on request for £5 each.

Question - I live local can I collect from you?

Answer - Yes If you live in the Merseyside area you can collect in person or I can deliver to you. Surrounding areas I can deliver at a small cost.

Question - Do you use my portrait in any advertising or put on social media?

Answer - I will always ask your permission if I was to use you portrait in any sort of advertising campaign, I post all my work on my Facebook page and instagram account, but if you reject me doing this I will follow your wishes.

Please feel free to message me any other questions you may have to
