I have had a search through the forums but couldn't find an answer to my query.
I have been approached by someone who wants to buy one of my photos (YAY!) and am not sure how much money to ask for. They want one print A1 in size to go on a classroom wall in a college. Any ideas on how much to charge? I am new to this picture selling thing.

Are you going to get it printed to A1 or are they?
They will be doing the printing. I would supply them with the file.

Price just went up x10 to x100...
Get the imaged printed yourself...
Around £65 for Fine Art Print or £18 for Poster Print, do google search.
Then add what you feel is fair.
Part with the file and they print how many?
Hope that helps.
I would agree with printing it yourself.... for the reasons above, and also you can be sure of the quality of the image.
ask for 30 quid and send them a disc....who gives a monkey what it looks like at their end...it's the wall of a classroom. Take the money and move on.
Not to sure about that one Keithh, the photographer should have control on the quality of the print out. If its good he may get another order -- if its crap - he may never sell another photo. Colin

How much of my work and that of many, many other photographers out there, do you think I have any control over the final print quality?....
....get it sold and move on.
Keith's right. Unless your final product is the print you produce from your original, then you are always going to find that your shot will be 'massaged' to fit not only with the technical requirements of the final destination but also any 'aesthetic' requirements from those further down the line.
It's the same if you're shooting for a billboard or a fine-art book. There will always be compromises made, over which the photographer has little or no control.
Thanks for the input. It gives me something to go on.
I don't mind the customer wanting to print the photo for themselves. It's less for me to sort out.
