Photography Question 
Patricia Dynes Moss
 

photo prices


I have had my website for only a few days and I have received 3 quiries about how to buy photos. I really don't know what photographs actually sell for. I can see what people are asking, but what do buyers typically pay for a good quality photograph?
Many thanks, Pat Moss

Kerry L. Walker   The value of any photograph is whatever someone is willing to pay for it. I would start with a price of $20.00 to $25.00 for an 8x10 (adjust the prices for difference sizes accordingly) and see how it goes. If they sell very quickly, you may want to raise your prices.

  I can see why people are inquiring. You're black and white photos are stunning. And I've only glanced through the NC and FL gallery! Nice work. Go with what Kerry says. He's been in the business a LONG LONG..

Patricia Dynes Moss   Thanks, Justin and Kerry.
I guess I need the remedial class. So lets say it is a 8x10 photo on 11x14 paper, do you include the mat? or is it extra, how much?
Thanks again Pat Moss

  Pat, I really enjoyed your website. It made me miss home. I grew up in South Florida and have been in NC for about 12 years. Out of curiousity, there was one photo that I found to be very peaceful and serene, it was entitled Monastery. Was that the Spanish Monastery by Greynold's Park?

All right! LOL

Patricia, I would just print it on 8x10 paper and let them mat it themselves, or have a frame shop mount it and mat it and charge extra. An 8x10 print on 11x14 paper isn't really a mat anyway.

Patricia Dynes Moss   Lisa, you have a good memory,it the Spanish Monastery. I had been shooting in the hall and packed up when it started to rain. Then I said "what am I doing?" this is special.
