    Have people ever approached you to purchase prints?

    A chap just called me, and wants to purchase about half a dozen photographic prints. I'm sending them a sample CD of the images they are after, and we'll take it from there (obviously, the samples will be stamped 'sample').

    Images will go from 7x5 to about A4 or slightly over.

    I'm not sure how to play this... Should I sell images, or suggest taking commission, and if so, is there a standard 'cut' that the photographer/artist takes?

    Cheers, m'dears.

    Michael.

    Do they want prints of something they would like you to photograph or prints of photographs you have already taken? Careful when sending the CD, not sure what you mean by 'stamped' with sample but make sure the pics you send are no more than 72ppi with the dimensions being just big enough to view e.g. 400pixels wide. This will prevent any acceptable prints being made. Even better if you could watermark them or why not send thumbnail images on a sheet of A4 instead?

    Hi Moelwyn. The chap has seen some of my work, and is also interested in more.. I don't mind sending a CD; I'll certainly resize them with a watermark (which is what I originally meant - apologies Smile )

    You need to find out what he wants to do with the pics before making any decisions about what to charge him.
