What is a Masterworks Portrait?


Your Masterworks fine art portrait combines photographic portraiture with painting, created in a style that pays homage to the "Old Masters" painters. Our subjects are outfitted in wardrobes that resemble the Renaissance and Baroque eras, but with a bit of a modern edge. Baroque art is characterized by great drama, rich, deep color, and intense light and dark shadows. The use of these characteristics in modern-day portraiture lends itself to painterly images. The final portraits are printed on an artist’s canvas and fit with rich, museum framing. 


About the Artist


 Lisa Asp is probably best known for her pet portraits, but she has a  deep history in human portraiture. Her love of photography and  portrait work began while pursuing an art degree in the 1990’s. Through  her studies she gravitated toward the “old masters” – the works of  Rembrandt and Vermeer, for example – which can be seen in her dramatic  lighting and use of rich color. As a result, her photographic work is  often mistaken for paintings. Asp has continued her education over the  years and has earned her Master of Photography and Photographic  Craftsman degrees as well as being a Certified Professional  Photographer. 

Masterworks Commissions


 Masterworks commissions are offered for individual children ages 7-14.   This time period is one in which children tend to come in to their own -  changing from small children into independent teens.  This period is  often not photographed, and we feel it is the perfect time to create  something special.  This timeless, classical style of portrait will  compliment any home.  With rich tones and beautiful fabrics, your child  will have a very special, heirloom portrait to pass on through the  generations.  

Creating a Masterwork


 We will begin with a meeting to discuss the details: where are you  planning to display your Masterworks portrait, are there specific colors that  would look best in your home, does your child have special  characteristics we want to showcase.  We will schedule your Masterworks  portrait session at this meeting.  Your child should attend with you as we will spend some time in the wardrobe room putting  together the perfect clothing for your Masterworks portrait.  All sessions are fully  inclusive of wardrobe, hair & make-up, and your final framed canvas. 

What is Fine Art Portrait Photography?

You may be familiar with portrait  photography, but have you ever had the pleasure of experiencing the fine art form? If you haven’t, it’s time you did. Fine art portrait photography has exploded in the luxury portraiture photography market in recent years. The results are superbly evocative and make simply stunning wall art.  Fine art portrait photographers are, in fact, artists. There is a  high level of perception and skill that goes into creating fine art  portrait images in the digital world. It takes a highly skilled and specialist photographer to do this well. It’s all about creative vision.
