    Re: Print Pricing

    Based on my experience, selling the work as a print should be the same price at any size IF* The image is done as a series, One number of say 100 total. What size the customer prefers should be non important- if the customer wants the print they pay 750. Most credible artists increase price related to factors of their name and what its worth and perhaps how many copies have been sold of said image up to date. Or they just pick a price they feel their work is worth. If an image is unique + only one copy is made then the price should be a-lot higher!

    If I have lots of publications, and my images are already sought after, then I should command more dollars- for any image- because that is how other artists price thier work. If one prices the way that you described, that says amatuer. That said I do have images that print better at certain size versus a range of sizes, therefore I only offer one size.

    I have them on my wall. And they are just to damn small.
    You can put my 11x14's in a hallway. They can be had for a fair price. The 16x20's are a bit rare. I think two exist.

    Damien Hirst could sign a restaurant cheque and it would be worth many times more on the art market than the sum total of any body of work I could produce in my lifetime.

    Yes, indeed. It is egocentric to believe an artist is more valuable to society than the farmer who provides our food, the construction worker who builds our homes, or those who makes our clothing. Art is a luxury in comparison. More than many arts, photography can be available to most people. That is good. It should be the goal of photographers who are integrated into society rather than belonging to a clique of elitists.

    True, but you couldn't pay me enough to make a 16x20. It's just too much trouble.

    What's that you say? You'll give me $750? I guess it's not THAT much trouble...

    That's probably some of the mentality behind the pricing.

    My problem is having to do this all for nothing. At that rate, 11x14 is what I'm willing to produce.

    Nope. Art isn't something that is created because there is a demand for it like food or homes. Art is produced because someone was inspired or compelled to create something. If someone wants it, they can buy it for what the artist is asking for it. If nobody wants it, it can just sit there and rot.

    That is my point- which you missed. Same price regardless.

    If his name is recognized. Most places like cash- no BS required.
