The pricing of my fine art prints aims at three simultaneous objectives:
- keep the entry prices affordable
- preserve the assets of collectors
- preserve my own interests
Fine art prints are numbered, signed, certified and sold under the "N+1" scheme: the Nth print in an edition is sold N+1 times its cost without extras, plus the extras.
The reference price is that of studio AZA, à Marseille, which creates my large prints. This price can be seen here.
Depending upon circumstances, I create some prints up to format A2 myself, using digigraphy certified fine art papers and professional printers.
This offers several advantages
- the price of the first print in an edition is low, and justified
- each photograph has its own value,
- lbeing unlimited, editions preserve the possibility in the futture to benefit from improved print techniques (new materials, holography, 3D etc.)
- a collector is secured by the fact that each future buyer values the entire serie
- each edition is de-facto limited by the price increase, unless the photo is extraordinary
- the print price is naturally bound to the evolution of photo priniting prices
- a collector may be happy to trade the cheap entry price for a bigger format or finer finition (as diasec for instance)
