Luxury fine art portraiture by Sean LeBlanc.
In our Masterpiece finish, your portrait is rendered entirely as a painting. Our award-winning artist commences digitally in a program developed specifically for traditional painters. Our artist picks their brush, and even the exact number of bristles then mixes their paint colours. They then choose the angle, the pressure, and everything just as one would with traditional old world painting. Once the painting is complete, your art piece is handcrafted in Italy with only the finest materials. The result is a spectacular portrait that is not photograph based. Our Masterpiece Portraits are rated for 300+ years before any fading occurs because of the unique materials we use. If Claude Monet were alive today, this is the process he would use.

As a distinguished studio, our background and lighting are tailored to render your portrait as a timeless work of art. This will be the most elegant and meaningful portrait you may likely have in a lifetime. Styles change, and clothing can draw attention away from your face, which is the essential aspect of your portrait. We suggest wearing formal or business casual attire in solid dark or jewel-toned colours to ensure your portrait stands the test of time. Detailed recommendations for clothing are sent by email after scheduling your portrait session. We are also available by phone for guidance regarding attire.
“At my 2017 Spruce Meadows Masters exhibition one of the exhibitors was photographer Sean LeBlanc. Even at set up he had an infectious positive energy, enthusiasm and friendliness. He also had quality work to support his confidence and strong personality. I was very impressed with him, his work and we established a solid friendship. Sean is 20 years my junior, he hasn’t always been a professional photographer and I told him I see a lot of myself in his artistic passion, drive and ambition (when I proposed a “Business of Art” lecture he was the first to sign up). Despite working in different mediums, he’s wise to continue to ask many questions about marketing, business and my experiences (I’ve always told our daughter “the smart ones” are the ones who always ask questions and cultivate many contacts and relationships). Since we’re friends, I’ve been aware of Sean’s Springbank home showroom and studio, however, I recently paid him a visit (then he proceeded to treat me then beat me on the Kananaskis golf course!). His highly professional, well thought out and elegant setup exceeded my high expectations. His branding and corporate identity are excellent. Sean is the whole package: most importantly – quality work, then professionalism, enthusiasm and a very welcoming and easy personality. Like many career disciplines, being successful in fine and commercial art is extremely difficult and rare so it’s extra important to acknowledge and support those who have “the fire in their belly”, work tirelessly and never give up on the dream of success and reaching their potential. Sean is one of those rare artists and I highly encourage you to consider him for personal or corporate photography work.”
