"Benj" who has stolen my heart!About the Artwork
I paint in a realistic style and have been classically trained to work in the tradition of the 19th century old masters. My artwork has been in galleries, published in books and is collected world wide. The materials I use are all professional grade and archival. Depending on the effect I am after for each portrait I might work on a gesso panel or canvas. All the artwork is copyrighted by me ~ you are welcome to share images by giving attribute and linking back, but commercial use is strictly forbidden.
About the Photos
As a professional portrait artist, you have to learn how to light and shoot models to obtain great reference photos. For the most part, photos are taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II unless I am on the road and the IPhone has to do double duty. All of the photos on this site, unless otherwise noted, are copyright protected by me. If you see a photo taken by someone else, be rest assured that photo credit has been given. I also sell stock images and prints, so please email me at email@example.com and let me know which image you are interested in.
About the Content
Maintaining an interesting blog is a lot of work, therefore all content is copyright protected. I am always on the lookout for cute pet photos and great stories, so please feel free to share your images and stories by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
