"I am fairly new to art shows, only started this year.  Once I went to large prints, I sold better.  I have sold best in 30x40 canvas, sometimes multiple pieces to the same customer.  In my bin prints, 11x14 OD have sold best, at $30…"

"One small size only available unframed but matted and one large size available just matted or matted and framed. Make sure the two sizes aren't adjacent and don't compete with each other. It took me years to figure it out and once I did I…"

Your best selling (2) piece sizes at art fairs

I wanted to ask this specifically of photographers that are regular participants selling their work at shows.I've been on a "break" from shows for many years. The break time from shows has allowed me to concentrate on my web marketing, the new website build and coming up with some really unique large format fine art media options. Also the last 2 seasons it's allowed us to visit many New England art shows and speak with the artist in person for a review on the specific show. Anyhow to the…See More

Addressing the Needs of Fine Art Photography buyers

Posted on November 18, 2013 at 7:30pm 4 Comments

I believe both the Photographer who sells their artwork at Art fairs or Galleries would find this informative, as well as the art collector.

I think many of us, myself included have had to deal with presentation issues. Just when you think you have decided on the perfect frame/mat combo for your artwork, you find out differently.  

The link below will take you to my "blog list". (minor inconvenience) Simply click on the little grey tab (bottom left) and…

Comparing the Photographers creative vision "Do you See what I see"

Posted on October 30, 2013 at 7:00pm 8 Comments

An interesting tale of 2 professional photographers working in the field, one a well known wildlife photographer and the other for capturing rustic charm, character and the essence.  Both members of the prestigious New England Photographers Guild.

John Vose is motivated by how Tom connects with the subject and conveys his passion to the final print.  A short simple article, but an excellent juxtaposition of two genres' …
