How much is your talent worth? I know it is a tough question but that is also what you are asking. The flip side is what is the audience there willing to pay. How expensive is art normally that is listed in the art journal, that might give you a framework of what your looking at.

Sorry, sometimes I'm a bit of a smart-a$$. Seriously I agree with C-Fox, but I'm no pro and haven't had the opportunity to sell my work yet. Maybe some of the pros could offer a little more insight. So.... here's a little bump for ya!

Perhaps you could go out and look at what other photographers in your area are charging for their work? When doing so, look carefully at the quality of work as well as the presentation of it (size and type of frames, mat colors and sizes, etc). Talk to the photographer too if you can - he/she may be willing to share information and insights about selling artwork with you. This is what I did when I started selling my work at art and craft shows 3 years ago - I went to shows and researched what the other artists were doing. In fact I still do that to ensure that I am reasonably "in line" with the others. Not too high, and not ridiculously low either.

From the thread title i thought this was going to be another stock photo debate... i know nothing about selling art photography, but with art in general it is usually best to price around the same as the rest of the pack.

Since you have costs of materials involved, i would say price about twice as much as you spent. For example if you spent 25 dollars on the frame and printing, then maybe charge at least 50. You certainly dont want to be selling at a loss.
