The Portrait Sitting
One wood-framed exhibition size portrait measuring 21x15 inches is provided as part of the sitting fee.
The portrait studio is set up in a room at the top of Ivan Berg's house close-by Hampstead Heath's Parliament Hill. All portraits are photographed using Rembrandt Lighting and a signature style of a plain black background with the camera lens set precisely at the eye level of the subject.
All portraits are real - that is they are exactly what the camera's portrait lens sees. There is no re-touching or photoshopping.
Each portrait sitting takes between two and three hours. Up to 100 shots are taken and are then viewed and selected jointly with the sitter in the adjoining edit room. The selected exhibition-sized portrait shot and 10 of the best shots are archived on a USB stick given to the sitter.
The exhibition size portrait will be printed and framed in a black wooden frame ready for hanging and can be collected usually within one or two days.
A Portrait by Berg is a unique, unusual, and very long lasting gift.
