Another post on selling photography
As most of you know I fell seven feet from the top of a ladder the other day and broke my hip. Boy does it ever hurt and recovery is both expensive and slow. My website manager extraordinaire, Angela Prosper has convinced me that selling my work is the only way to go. I am bad at this, plain and simple and have never sold a lot of work either on-line or in person; instead I have sold mostly through galleries. But this method gets rid of the middle-man and right now my only gallery representation is the Kentler Gallery in Brooklyn, NY, representing my Red Hook work. I am going to get better at selling I am. What I have prior to the digital age is a whole lot of one of a kind silver prints, toned, manipulated, solarized and hand-colored and lots of chemical made color prints (as opposed to digitally printed). I was planning on posting one image a week and try to get my work out there but then the broken hip got in way. So here is a post for a new week. Right now, I am sitting up in bed, listening to the roar of the fans curtains closed on the smoke and hoping that things will start to improve soon.
This week I am offering a framed photograph of my daughter Jess when she was about five years old; she was holding her favorite doll, My Buddy and it was a hot August day. She was watching her Dad and I work on her bedroom which she desperately wanted to move back into. The print is an old fashioned chemical print made in the mid-nineties that has held up well (proof of its archivability). It is matted with 8 ply archival museum board. This photograph is the last one that I will make of this image as a chemical print. The negative has now been scanned and in the future it will be printed digitally. Thus this is a one of a kind print. Feel free to ask about other photographs of her which are in the Kid Picture portfolio on this website. I can sell them unframed and unmatted and they are mostly digital prints that have been shot on film.
The featured photograph is the print unframed, from the scan I made of this image. This image is framed under glass and virtually impossible to photograph without glare. To purchase, go to the shop section of this website and buy it there. Or drop by and see the image in person. Since it is so nicely framed and an old school chemical print, I am offering here on sale for 450.00. Taxes shipping and handling add about another $50.00 to the price. Ready to put on a wall. Normally I would not sell this print for under 750.00 but what is normal anyway?
