Hi everyone! I have one question. who had an experience of printing and distributing your own works? I want to start sell my own pictures, but I don’t know anything about the whole process: choosing paper, sizes, printing, distributing, etc. Thanks a lot if you have any ideas!

Hi electrees – this is something I’ve been thinking about too, not on a commercial level but wanting something in my hand or on my wall, or to give as a gift as I already frame paintings and drawings. From a workflow point of view I’m mainly all digital, but have been shooting film again of late. It’s hard to know which workflow to apply, and can I really be getting into setting up a darkroom, its been over 25 years (ouch) since I did any pure ‘analog’ shot to print processing! I’m in need of something that’ll print B&W and colour faithfully up to 10×8, A3 would be nice but its big bucks.

I would find a good printer near you and start kissing ass C:

its good to have good relationships for the future. print an image on different paper and see what you like. Bring him some business in the future, help him out (if he needs help). you may get better deals down the road.

I get my prints done at cost through my friend as a result.

I used to print more for sale, but now I am looking at small run photobooks with a series of photographs.

Great idea; I would just hit up a local printing lab. Even places that do wedding invitations are good, they have a good selection of papers and you can touch them to get a good feel. Also blurb.com is always a good option, try out their magazine printing. Good luck!
