One of the ways to earn money through photography is by selling your prints. This especially goes for those of us who don’t photograph people and events, but rather landscapes, nature, cityscapes, and the like. But selling prints may not be as easy as it sounds. In this video, Adam Karnacz of First Man Photography reveals some uncomfortable truths about it, but also suggests some solutions for selling more of your prints in the future.
Photography is a form of art, and art was never meant to live solely inside a computer screen. Sure, your clients may be excited about getting that perfect profile-pic-worthy shot, but nothing truly brings a photograph to life like framed prints and canvases.
Having beautiful prints adorning their home’s walls benefits clients by serving as constant reminders of the joy they felt on the day of their shoot, but it can be equally as beneficial for the person behind the lens. Selling photo prints can lead to a huge leap in a photographer’s revenue while simultaneously showing off their skill and professionalism to potential future clients. Plus, photo prints serve as a daily reminder of you and your services, making your clients more likely to head your way for their future photo needs.

Google Photos seems to be serious about its printing service. After relaunching it in 2019 and introducing a test subscription in 2020, Google Photos has now expanded its services even further.

Choosing nature photography prints to complement your home décor can be one of the most rewarding aspects of decorating, creating a calming atmosphere and making your home interior more inviting and beautiful.
Landscape photography is one of those genres that very few photographers tend to shoot professionally. Sure, there are a lot of professional landscape photographers out there, but when you compare that to portraits or weddings, there really ain’t all that many at all. Partly it’s down to not knowing what to sell, but it’s also not knowing how to sell it or price it.
In this video, landscape photographer Nigel Danson goes over the prints he’s sold over the last couple of years to see which have sold the most (and the least) to try and figure out why. He also talks about how he prices his prints in order to get a price that makes it worth his time but also provides good value to the customer.
If you’ve always wanted to own one of the iconic Magnum Photos prints, here’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss.

So, you want to start printing your photos. There are many reasons why you should do it, so I totally support you! But now there’s a dilemma: should you invest money in a printer or send your photos to a lab? In this video from Adorama, photographer David Bergman will help you make this decision and discuss the advantages of both.
Once you’ve made the decision to invest in a beautiful artwork that you absolutely love, it is important to know that there is one last step involved that will really make your new art piece get the attention it deserves- and that is to give it proper accent lighting.
Correctly illuminating art is essential for showing off the details, colors, and three-dimensionality that make it so amazing. You have to make the choice as to whether you are content with the natural light in the room or if you will illuminate your art to maximize its potential.
Making prints from our film negatives is often a bit of a pain. You have all kinds of chemicals you need to buy, and the range that’s available today can be quite overwhelming. In this video, Historic Process Specialist, Nick Brandreth at the George Eastman Museum shows us how to make prints using the salt process.
The salt process is one of the earliest silver-based photographic techniques and is used to make photograms, in-camera paper negatives and prints from paper and glass negatives – I suspect it might work on some types of film, too, either for contact prints or using an enlarger, although your enlarger would need a UV bulb in it.
