Animal Portraits

A good portrait captures not just how an animal looks but their character and spirit too - something far, far harder to achieve with a photograph.

With today's digital cameras, a good photograph of an animal is quite feasible with your own equipment. In many cases it will be an exact likeness. A portrait is something different. A portrait is unique.

A portrait is a one-off, created just for you, whether for yourself or to give as a present. There are any number of photos of any number of pets and varieties of wildlife.

A portrait in a traditional medium such as graphite or charcoal is much more personal and warm than a technically perfect photograph.

A good portrait reflects the depth of your affection for the animal and its place in your life.
