Portrait FAQ

  • How long does it take to do a portrait?

    It depends on my workload at the moment. Usually, I complete the commission between 2 and 4 months.

  • Do I give you a photo to paint from?

    Yes. In case of portraits from a photo, you need to provide a high-quality photo (the bigger the resolution, the better). It is possible that if I don’t find the photo appropriate for a portrait (because of the lighting, detail, etc) I will ask you for another photo.

  • Can you paint more than one person in the same portrait?

    Sorry, because I celebrate the individuality of my clients/models, I do not paint group or family portraits.

  • How much a portrait costs?

    Portraits prices start at €600 for a 40 x 40 cm canvas based from a photo. Prices are based on size. Live painted portraits prices starts at €2000 with a minimum of 3 sessions.

  • Do you receive commissions outside Frankfurt am Main?

    I case of a photo-based portrait I receive commissions from all over the world. For live portraits, I just work in the Rhein-Main area.

  • What is included on the price?

    Almost everything. The portrait, delivery and my travel expenses (when applicable). That is why I request a phone consultation, so I can tailor my service exactly for your needs and give you the right price.

  • Can you make a photo session for my portrait?

    Yes. If you are in the Main-Rhein area I can go with my camera and lighting equipment and do the session. That cost is going to be added to the final price.
