Ryan Moyer replied to Catherine Adamkiewicz's discussion Photography: how many prints, in how many sizes?
"Print a bunch, see what sells, print more of those, ditch the ones that aren't selling. I've never had a problem with having "too many" different prints and I've had a lot more than 25.  People will sit there and thumb…"

"Boulder can be a good show, a minor amount of junk, mostly superb artists. Setup on the mall is tough - if you are there at 6:00 am, you are late! It takes me about 4 hours to set up my booth, hang work, and drink coffee. Then, at times during the…"

"My rule of thumb is to try the show that is closer first and it sounds like your audience might be better in Jackson.  I've not done Jackson but I have done Pearl Street.  It was fairly busy but the buying energy was not what I had…"

Chris Gug replied to Ryan Moyer's discussion Jackson vs. Boulder (Pearl Street)
"One thing I can say for sure is the stated attendance numbers for Jackson Hole are grossly off.  They claimed (for the 2017 show) an expected ticketed attendance of 11-12,000, and I'd put it closer to 1000-1500 attendance for the August…"

DORI SMITH replied to Ryan Moyer's discussion Jackson vs. Boulder (Pearl Street)
"I’ve done both. I’d go back to Boulder before Jackson Hole, mostly because of the amount of foot traffic. Both shows, IMO, are just tourists who are lost and looking for their car, accidentally walking by your tent, taking turns…"

Jackson vs. Boulder (Pearl Street)

I was accepted to both of these shows for the first time this year and will likely only be able to squeeze one into my schedule.  Does anyone have any experience/insight with these two shows relative to each other?  I am a landscape photographer.I'm torn because Jackson is closer to me (4hrs vs. 7hrs) and I have a fair amount of local images from there, whereas Boulder I have no local images and it is a little further but it looks like it gets nearly 15x the foot traffic as the Jackson show.See More

Larry Berman replied to Ryan Moyer's discussion Lights in booth photo? Double booth?
"Not frowned upon or anything like that. If you take the picture during the day you don't need lights because everything can be adjusted afterwards. If you do want to use the lights, take it with and without the lights because once you turn on…"

Lights in booth photo? Double booth?

I've upgraded my setup recently to include pro panels, booth shot, etc and want to re-do my booth shot.  My medium is photography.When I ordered the pro panels I bought the nice pro panel lighting setup.  It looks really nice and professional, and creates nice even light on the photos.  Should I include it in my booth shot?  It looks better to my eyes with the lights on, but I don't know if that's something that's frowned upon or seen as distracting by jurors.Also, is it customary to only show…See More

Brenda Flynn replied to Ryan Moyer's discussion Trimline - Which canopy top?
"I like my Trimline top with the skylight. It's muted, and gives the tent an open and airy feeling, and is perfect for overcast days."

Larry Sohn replied to Ryan Moyer's discussion Trimline - Which canopy top?
"As a photographer, understanding the importance of lighting is paramount. Therefore, control it in your booth. Perhaps blackout and then you control all the lighting."

Trimline - Which canopy top?

Anyone have opinions on the 3 different trimline tops offered?I am a photographer that does all my prints on metal and run into issues with reflections a lot. I was looking at upgrading to a Trimline (currently just using a pop-up) and they offer a frosty top, normal top with skylight, or blackout top.I'm unsure whether it's better to go with a top that lets more light through in the hopes that the light would be evenly dispersed as to light the tent without reflections, or to try and block as…See More
