    Pricing prints for corporations

    I'm meeting shortly with a person who sells artwork to corporations and I need advice on how pricing should work. For argument's sake I'll call the prints 4'x6' in size. She deals with banks, hotels and the like. I haven't a clue what to charge in this situation.

    There are a number of photo reps who work on a freelance or project basis for commission. They could help you price the work and deal with the corporation.

    Why I say this is that if you really have no idea about pricing then it would be worth the 25% commission (typical) to get their advice and negotiating power. They will ask for amounts you are probably not familiar with, especially if you are dealing with for example hospitality industry, buying for a hotel chain for example, or buying for corporate art collections, some serious money involved.

    they will also ask the right questions with regard to usage and build quotations that are useful to the buyers.

    there are many pitfalls in negotiation- I've made them all. I'm only starting to feel comfortable after 15 years doing this and there are jobs large enough where I would not hesitate to involve a rep in this way- ie; large advertising and corporate gigs.


    One rep that might do this is bill cramer at Consulting | Wonderful Machine Photography Blog

    also another rep is frank meo at
    The Photo Closer

    I have no affiliation with either - I've met frank once.
