ORDERING A PAINTING OR DRAWING:

If you live in Metro New York, Greater Boston, New England or the Hudson Valley, arrangements can be made for David to personally photograph your house, building or business. He'll be glad to schedule an appointment to meet and discuss your project.

If you live in another region of the United States, please email or send clear photos of your house or specific view. They don't have to be professional quality, just good enough to get the main view and details.

 

PHOTOGRAPHIC GUIDELINES:

Albany, New York

Albany, New York

If possible, take the photos on a day when there is some sunlight on the subject. Depending on how the house/building is facing, morning or late afternoon is the best time. Another option is to capture the house on an overcast day, when shadows are not as dark as on an extremely sunny day.

A slight left or right perspective is usually the most appealing angle. On occasion, straight on can be very dramatic. If you are unsure, send one of each. Try not to cut off any portions of the house. If trees are blocking the view, go up to where you can see the structure and shoot that portion.

Take some pictures of the details you especially like about your house; the front entrance, unique windows, porches, side facades, important landscape elements. Don't worry about power lines or other unattractive items, they will be eliminated in the painting.

Make any comment you wish when sending the pictures (i.e. - what to eliminate and/or what to add). If you send more than one main reference, indicate which one you like best.

Once the photos are received, David will contact you to discuss emphasis and details before beginning the artwork.  He considers each portrait commission to be a collaborative project.

ORDERING A FINE ART PHOTOGRAPH:

If you live in Metro New York, Greater Boston, Cape Cod, Rhode Island, Connecticut, the Hudson Valley or New Jersey, David will be glad to arrange an onsite photo shoot to capture your house, building or business.  Careful consideration will be given to weather conditions and time of day when scheduling a visit.  Before the photographs are taken, angle, emphasis and details will be discussed.  Your thoughts are a very important part of the process.  David will provide you will a choice of three different views.  The final photograph will be printed on heavy weight canvas and then stretched on a wooden frame of 1.5" x 1.5" stretcher bars (gallery wrap).  All stretched canvases arrive "ready to hang."  Since the edges are are either mirrored or black, stretched canvas prints look beautiful without frames. If you prefer, a frame can be added.

 

PRICE LIST:

All prices include initial consultation (at your home, office or via email / telephone), onsite photography and delivery of the finished art work. Please allow 4 - 6 weeks for completion of your project. Rush orders can usually be arranged. Discounts are available for three or more portraits ordered at one time. Limited edition prints can be made of any commissioned painting or drawing.
