Can't edit subject lines, huh? Sorry for the typo...
I hope this isn't against policy but I posted the text below last year and received no responses to my actual question. I thought a repost might yield fresh views from those who might be able to respond based upon their own actual numbers.
If there is anyone selling 11 x 14 wildlife prints--either matted and bagged or individually (not all black frames/ivory mats, etc.) framed (with ready-made frames of the type available at Michael's (which, btw, new lines and they are much nicer than old stock and are re-engineered to hold double mats), A.C. Moore, and art supply stores)? If so, how much are you charging at art and craft shows/fairs, restaurants or wineries, state park spaces and/or legitimate gallery settings, or directly to individuals?
Also, do you adjust prices based upon venue or location?
Last year's text...
Recently my images have been getting some attention (requests for donations (one very large) from well known wildlife organizations, invitations to exhibit at a number of state park and similar gallery spaces) and so I am planning to begin attempting to sell at (said) galleries and art/craft fairs next year.
I'll be offering 8 x 10, matted 11 x 14, and framed (individually--not uniformly) 11 x 14 and 16 x 20 prints.
I've reviewed more general pricing information here and elsewhere and I'm sure to get strong suggestions from the gallery managers, but at this early stage I'm interested in knowing what others in a position similar to mine are charging.
I'm in New Jersey and have been shooting for about 4 years, mostly local species. Not a big wildlife/nature state but we do have Cape May, arguably the top birding location in the country, and that is one of the towns where I'll have an opportunity to sell. Still, I'm talking blue jays and butterflies and raccoons, not lions and tigers and bears... Okay, a few bears...
I shoot with a 40D and 7D and a 100-400 f4.5/5.6 IS and 500 f4.0 IS. Happy to disclose any other information.
I'm aware of the various expenses and am looking more for actual prices for similar work, not common sense suggestions, equations, etc.
I appreciate any consideration.
