    So just wondering, what does everyone that sells individual photos, framed or not, clear after the cost of the photo.

    The way I'm planning on it, it making about $100 off of a framed 24x36-30x45 sized photo and $40-$50 off of an 8x12.

    I could probably save a few fingers if I did the matting myself. I think I'm going to look into that.

    I am interested in knowing how that works out for you. Post some results when you do. Good luck.

    Are we talking portrait shots? And if so, was there a sitting fee involved.

    Or are we talking artistic shots, where you would be selling multiple copies of a given image?

    I'd say mainly artistic shots, not selling pictures where you would charge a fee for taking them.

    Now, I don't sell images because before February, all I did was expose. Now, I expose and process my film, no printing yet. Once I can print my own, I plan on starting about $200.00 for unmatted 8x10's. Honestly not planning on a lot of sales. But if I do sell some, I want to be paid for my creativity and time. And I can state that the images are completely mine. Of course, not from any negative shot before May of 2007, but anything afterwards will be a complete Christopher Walrath piece of art, with the sole exception of making and shipping the film.
