Pet Portrait Artist Near Me- Why it might be a good idea to commission a local Pet Portrait Artist


When looking for a pet portrait artist to create a custom portrait of your pet, the choice of artists may be slightly overwhelming. With artists working from photos taken by their clients, theoretically a pet portrait can be created for anyone, anywhere in the world. However, in some cases you may want to find an artist a little closer to home.


Why is it a good idea to commission a local pet portrait artist?


1. The reference photos


The main caveat of choosing an artist that is not local to you is, that you are responsible for taking your own reference photos. This may no be a problem, if you are a keen photographer and love to take photos of your pets. However, if you think that this is going to be a major issue for you, choosing an artist that can travel to you to take photos would be a good idea. The reference photos you take are hugely important in making sure you end up with a fantastic finished portrait. I have a wealth of information on taking photos, and I really do try and help and guide people in getting that perfect photo. However, if you don't have the necessary skill, or tools (!), you may run into problems.
