On my recent 2 month spring trip to the Colorado Plateau, I was fortunate to find a heavily traveled tourist outfitting/cafe store in Utah who is willing to show and sale my work from the trip. Both the business owner and I are novices at showing and selling photographs and are looking for some guidance on the business relationship. I will display approximately 5 20x24 inch (image size) framed and matted prints on the walls and will have smaller matted-only prints in a bin (5x7, 8x10 and 11x14). We realize that whatever we agree to will work but we are looking to see if there is a standard that would help us with an agreement that is equitable to each. Currently, he is suggesting that everything be put in the store on consignment, even the smaller prints. Obviously, the matting, printing and framing are big costs to me and my preference would be to recover the expenses for those by charging him for the smaller prints, even if the larger ones are placed on consignment.
Let me emphasize that each of us wants to do the right thing. If the cost of having the prints in his shop is too large for him, it would nix the deal. And, what is most important to me is to get my work up and see if it sells. What have the experiences of others been? Many thanks.
