product spotlight: selling a showpiece portrait

Selling large statement pieces to your clients is an essential part of your success! This guide is designed to help you succeed in three primary ways:

1. By eliminating your clients’ “big 8×10″ mentality. While you understand an 8×10 or 11×14 isn’t an impressive piece of wall art, clients might not. Replace their stale ideas of what portrait art should be by putting our best display practices to work for you.
2. By teaching you how to most effectively showcase your art. Clients’ perspective is their reality so it’s critical to provide them with a guiding purchasing process that is both elegant and educational.
3. By providing a visual expert guide that is simple to use and simple to sell with! When clients can visualize the impact of appropriately-sized artwork, selling portraits is a breeze!

We demonstrate portrait sizes ranging from the smaller 16×20 (looks so silly over the sofa!) to properly sized 30×40 (the goal!) and a few stops in between. This creates instant value not in only your work, but for your expert advice. Clients leave the buying process feeling like smart consumers, and you leave it with the largest possible sale in hand.


• Sizing visuals show clients the literal difference in how their images will look on a wall (16×20, 20×24, 24×30 and 30×40)
• High quality timeless furniture, photographed by Design Aglow
• Fully layered PSD files for complete customization (easily add your own portraits to the image placeholders)
• Print as a quad-fold piece or use a digital PDF on your website, tablet, or as a PDF email Some of the latest stock roomshots are, shall we say…shabby and not so chic. Distinguish your studio with our high-quality furniture selections and leave the cheesy typical stock shots for the amateurs!

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
