For the many people who have asked to be able to buy my photos, I'm working on a trial run of producing a few at fine art quality and getting them framed in hand-made custom frames. It will take a few weeks to run through this process, and be ready to scale it up.
I aim to put out a limited production run of maybe 6 different images with a single theme (probably "iconic London"), offering perhaps 10 copies of each in the first batch. There is a significant materials and labour cost to production, so the end price will have to reflect that.
Doing different sizes, frames, materials, ranges of images can come later. There's a real effort and cost involved in reprocessing each image to maximum image quality, doing a sample run for quality control, and setting up e-commerce to take orders. Has to be done as a business.
I'm thinking of doing a simple watermark on the digital images and giving them away as promo. That means having a website set up, and a plan to offer more content. I am looking at different platforms and options. All of this takes time, and I have lot of demands on my attention.
"First steps are fateful", so if I am going to make art a semi-professional activity, I am going to do it to my own high professional standards. I don't want to do some half-assed thing selling low quality prints, and spending huge overheads taking orders for small sums of money.
By making the digital versions free, I get to indulge my penchant for generosity and having the maximum number of people enjoy my artwork. If you choose to print it with the watermark, that's up to you! Turn it into a screen saver, wallpaper, whatever. I am not precious about it.
