I have been a portrait sculptor for the past 10 years or so and regularly work on commission. I promote my self as a portrait artist on my website and social media, and generally spend half my working time doing portrait work. I currently am not listed in any registries, but have won awards for my portrait and figure work - most notably at the Salmagundi Club and Allied Artists of America.
I work from both photos and/or live sittings, depending on the availability of the clients. If a sitting can be arranged, I prefer client to come to my studio, but can make arrangements to travel to client if necessary. That may incur a travel expense charge. Sittings are usually 2-3 hours; generally 2-3 sittings required if working from life. Completed works are available in plaster, ceramic, resin or bronze and scaled to 1/4 life, 1/2 life and life sized.
Pricing varies depending on medium chosen. A base is an optional and an additional cost.
