Major John Melville Military Portrait Sitting

Major John Melville late of the Commandos and now serving in The Royal Artillery commissioned a Military Portrait at Barracks in Liverpool. It was wonderful to meet John and great to speak to him about his incredible career. Melville is a soldier of considerable experience serving through the ranks as an enlisted man all the way to becoming an officer. His service in the military spanning from the Falklands Conflict in 1982 to the Gulf War in 1990 and even the recent conflicts in Iraq 2003 & Afghanistan 2001–14.


Portraits are very important to military personal, to be captured in Uniform looking ones best and in full finery can fill one with pride for the service. John is a genuine British Hero and I wanted to capture him as thus, opting for tall, solemn yet dutiful poses. He was very proud of his service in the Commandos and opted for his portrait in the Iconic Green Commando Beret.
