Michael Alford accepts commissions for portraits in oil and charcoal. He works with individual adults and children as well as families and larger groups.

Travel, if necessary, and related expenses will also be reflected in the price.

Charcoal portraits require one or two sittings, which can take place at the artist’s London studio or in the subject’s home. Prices start at £700 for a single subject.
