Why Should You Sell Your Prints

So selling prints like why? What does this mean? This means that we are taking our photos, we are printing them, we're potentially framing them and we are selling them. Now, this is kind of a smaller section in our class because this is actually very difficult to be very successful at. You can sell a print here and there and make a little bit of money, but this won't necessarily be a huge business unless you've coined some sort of really, really interesting and fantastic market where you're selling them. This is incredibly difficult, but it can be done, it can definitely be done. And I've seen people have a lot of success at it or do it in combination with the other photography business. The problem with selling prints is it's a whole different structure than actually shooting if it's just prints and it's just fine art. You have to kind of find a niche in a market for it. I'm gonna take the example in Los Angeles. There's a lot of photographers out here that specialize in different sty...

le of photography. It's very artistic. There's a photographer that only takes pictures of lifeguard houses and in that market along the beach community where people have houses near the beach, They want to put photos up of that. So he's kind of sticks to that area and is able to sell that another good market that I've seen is people taking pictures of dogs or of specialty items like they'll go around doing a single sort of photo of skylines and they'll sell those skylines in that specific city or you know, they'll go around doing specific street art photography and they'll go sell them near people who are interested in buying more artistic street art. You really have to kind of find your market for it and then stick to that sort of genre of photography. Um It's gonna be really hard if you're all over the place just trying to sell random prints. You want to try and find a market that would really work for what you're shooting and who is going to actually buy a physical print and hang it up. I've seen photographers get to the point where they're selling prints for thousands of dollars. I'm not talking like a couple of $000. I'm talking like tens of thousands of dollars. There are people out there who will create whole galleries of all their art and be able to sell them. But this is a very long road and it is a very specific way of doing a business and shooting. So let's talk about the basics of that to get started even though it may take you a while to get to the point of making millions of dollars
