I'm by no means a pro, take pictures for enjoyment and as a hobby and have no real plans to make my hobby a business as such. However a friend of mine wants some of my images just to display in his house and is willing to pay for them too.
My first instinct was to just email him the jpegs and let him then print and frame them, all for free. But then I thought that would perhaps detract from the time spent taking the shots and processing them ( also the prints might not be that great depending where they are done), and as he knows a lot of people who also might be interested in having original photographs on display in their homes, or even people who would like me to take some images for them, this would set a bad precedent. Also if I just give stuff away, the next guy who is trying to sell his/her stuff might lose out too.
So I'm thinking I might do some re processing of the images he wants ( so that they are unique for this transaction only ) and then get them printed and mounted then sell them to him ( on the understanding I'm selling a print of my work and I retain copyright.)
What is a fair "mates rates" price for this type of thing UK wise? Looking at 18x12 prints mounted and framed. Or even just a good quality print of the same dimension and let him mount and frame himself?
The pictures themselves are just semi abstract architectural type, no recognisable people in them requiring a release, and he just wants to have them over his fireplace as a talking point in his house.
Or, should I just give him the images for free and see if that creates interest later on?
