To the Max
Here we have Maximum. His portrait was done on a cold day in December just before sunset. It’s important to me that the portraits that I do have a heroic quality or pay an homage in some way or another. With smaller breeds, I’m at a very low angle to give them a larger than life quality. This means I’m lying on the ground and in freezing temperatures and the magic is that one has no idea of the difficulty. It looks a like a portrait done on a perfectly beautiful afternoon. A big thanks to Peter & Virgil for commissioning me to do this special portrait.
