If you would like to commission me to paint a dog painting for you, please telephone me on 07884198748 or email your favourite dog photos to me with any ideas you might have regarding the portrait you would like.
Email your Photo's to us...
I will then look at your specific requirements and either discuss by phone or send you an email with a written quotation which will be tailored to your request.

Payment can also be made by BACS payment.
A deposit of at least £50.00 is required before starting dog portraits. The remaining balance is to be paid before the painting is posted.
We are located between the market towns of Stamford in Lincolnshire and Oakham in Rutland in the East Midlands. This is one mile from Rutland Water.
If you do not have decent photographs of your dog, you can either bring your dog to us at Exton for a photo shoot, or otherwise, we can travel to your location, providing it is within a 50 mile radius from the town of Oakham in Rutland.
Photographing your dog is free of charge, providing you are local to us and within a 20 mile radius from the town of Oakham in Rutland. There is a fee for travel if we come to your location 20-50 miles from the town of Oakham in Rutland.
PLEASE NOTE: Photographs taken by us are the copyright of John Richardson and are only available for sale 28 days after the commission is completed and payment for the portrait has been made in full.
Helpful tips for taking your own photos
Try to kneel down so that you are at eye level with your animal- not too close as this can distort the angle of view. Alternatively, place your animal on a bench or wall, this will insure the correct perspective. (Try to do this with a helper).
If possible the helper needs to stand a little way behind the photographer and make noises using a squeaky toy or by calling.
(A biscuit can encourage an expression).
DO NOT take a photo from above your animal looking down at it, as the size of the head and nose will be exaggerated in proportion to the feet.
Alterations to the portrait, if needed
Once your dog portraits are at a stage for viewing, John will scan and send a proof via email for your approval.
If alterations are necessary I will make the adjustments to the painting and send further proofs until your dog portrait is as you like it.
Completion/ Framing/ Postage
Once the commission is complete a bespoke framing service is available if required. The painting will be packaged and posted to you via Parcel Force 24 or 48 recorded delivery. Alternatively, you are welcome to personally collect your painting from my Art Gallery at Exton in Rutland.
