Our painters have been trained to understand the needs of photographers. To ensure the best result, it is equally important that photographers understand the needs of our painters.

Embracing this shared knowledge will make a significant difference in the quality of your painting. To help you, we have prepared a detailed guide entitled Shooting for Oil. You can download it by right-clicking here.

Topics include:

  • Anticipating oil’s tonal range
  • Creating painterly light
  • Minimum face sizes
  • Estimating painting size
    and more

If considering a commission for a painting, please ensure that you read and understand the Shooting for Oil download. It is written specifically for photographers, and will help you to better collaborate with your painter.
