Commissioning a portrait, having your picture taken, is probably one of the most intangible purchases you will ever make. Whether buying a car or painting it is something you can see, touch, try out but your photograph is different – it doesn’t exist until a creative process starts. Most of the things we buy require no creative input from us. Ok we can choose the colour, the make, the size but these are from the choices the manufacturer offers. It’s easy. Creating a unique portrait photograph is easy as well but it does take a little work – oh and a good photographer.
