Upon requesting a commission, the client may provide the artist, Michael Gaillard, with examples of the style of image (based on the portfolio visible on www.michaelgaillard.com) to which they would like the artist to refer. It is important that the client understand in advance of agreeing to this arrangement that this commission is not a rendering of their vision, nor a collaboration, but rather a personalized, unique manifestation of Michael Gaillard’s vision as an artist, captured within the context requested by the client.
The role of the client is to provide the location and an inspiration for the piece. There are many photographers available who will precisely manifest the vision of a client. If that is what the client is interested in, Michael Gaillard Studio encourages that the client pursue that avenue instead of this commission. This commission is an opportunity for the client to own a unique artwork by Michael Gaillard taken in response to the conditions presented by the client, but consistent with his vision and true to his identity as an artist.
