Portrait on Spec




I'm considering contacting a local councilman to do a portrait on spec to help generate some publicity for potential new work. Is there an observed protocol in contacting a prospective subject? For example, should I request a meeting or simply drop off my portfolio/letter and await their reply? Further, should I offer the piece at a nominal fee since they're a politician and unlikely able to receive gifts?

Thanks in advance,

Kevin
