Photo Guidelines

Please follow the below pet photo guidelines to produce the best image for painting.

Best photo examples:
1. Take the photo in a brightly lit area with no shadows.
2. Take the photo head-on and close up at the pet’s eye level capturing its whole face and chest, with it looking at the camera.
3. Use a high-quality camera or smartphone to help highlight your pet’s true colour.

Poor photo examples:
1. Not at pet’s eye level and the pet is looking away from the camera with an angled face.
2. Pet laying down on the floor so not showing its neck and chest.
3. Poor lighting and shadows minimising detail and true colours.

Although we will advise our customers if a photo is not optimal before our artists commence work on a pet portrait to ensure our high standard of pet portraits is maintained, if you ever feel unsure about a photo please feel free to get in touch with our customer support team by emailing . Please be sure to attach the photo(s) in question.
