early career
I undertake commissions based on customers own photographs of their houses and gardens or a favourite scene. Prices start at £1000

Or if you prefer, I can visit the location and take photographs as a base for the commission This is charged for separately

Discussions start with a selection of photographs and their suitability and then move on to sizes, prices, mounts, frames and the time scale involved. This is all designed to give the client what they want
