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 point, I'm gearing up to do it again and also plan to make available my own unique proprietary display pieces
There is no right or wrong answers to my questions, just a poll of your findings based on your past experiences.
Q 1: For those Fine Art photographers that set up at art shows frequently, what do you find are your (2) most popular selling piece sizes?
*Note that I'm not requesting a critique of aspect ratios, or an opinion on size preferences*
I'm seeking ballpark feedback here that I'll relate to similar sizes that I market myself for this question. If anyone has feedback selling larger fine art photography pieces, I'd love to hear it.
Q 2: What do you personally find to be the ceiling your clients are comfortable paying for your most popular selling sizes?
OK, this may vary widely due to the fact my media options may differ greatly from yours. I haven't polled this website for your preferences of media options, so this second question may turn out to be irrelevant.
For example, I DO NOT make traditional hinge mounted/matted/framed/behind glass - prints available. I do however make the "print only" option available on my website as an entry-level to own price point, these are popular mostly holiday time as gifts. So if you happen to find homes for a ton of 30x20" framed and matted at a certain investment point, that still helps me gauge what demographics these shows are drawing.
Totally unrelated to any feedback I get, but here are just (2) piece sizes and media options I ship often, and the price points via my webpage: Chromaluxe Aluminum Dye-Infused 24x16" at $365.00 / 30x20" at $515.00 - ready to hang museum floats
HD LumaChrome Acrylic face mounted - Museum floats, ready to hang 24x16" at $480.00 and 30x20" at $650.00.
These 2 sizes are actually near the lower end of pieces I make available. I find my most popular shipments are 36" max dim. to 45" max dim. pieces through my website.
Thanks in advance!
