A commission is one of the most personal things you can do in the art field. You work with a person to capture their vision and create an image that encapsulates more than just a photograph can. A painting needs to expose some of the soul and emotion that is attached to the image.
There are three ways Tony does commis-sions and specifically commissions of boats.
1. You supply the photo
2. Tony takes a photo of your boat
This would be a static photo of your boat anchored, in a slip or under power taken from shore or the end of a pier.
3. “On the water action photos”
This may take several hours with the skipper on the water in the boat and Tony in a chase boat. This allows him to get to know the way your boat handles in the water and the way you skipper it. During the process Tony will take between a 1,000 and 2,000 photos in every possible configuration. Finally, both you and Tony will sit down and find just the perfect image for the portrait. This allows for a true collaboration of vision and makes for a truly distinctive and exciting portrait.
Prices start at $1,500 depending on the size and complexity.
