Camera Club season is back with a bang and this year I find myself on the committee, pretty much as a general dogsbody although I seem to have been seconded into helping with membership and doorman duties, along with one or two events.
No competitions just yet but I have managed to allow myself to be talked into doing a five week exhibition on the run up to Christmas. This will be my first properly commercial one and will consist of twelve pics selling for around £25 each (A3 size print on a 20" x 16" mount) with each costing me around £7 to produce. Each pic will be local to Worthing/Sussex and I was considering selling these pics as part of signed, limited editions of ten in the hope that the guaranteed rarity might provoke more interest (I'm only going to have five done at a time and will take orders for the rest depending on sales). This will represent an outlay of approximately £420 + £80 rental for the five weeks. The location is an art gallery/coffee shop in central Worthing and is very busy. The people who run it sell the pics on your behalf with no commission other than space rental.
The problem I have is that I have never done anything like this before so any advice or suggestions (not including 'give up now') would be welcome.
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
