New sale on Fine Art America

After a long, long drought, I got an email last night about a new sale on Fine Art America, and what a sale!

But before I go onto that, I rethought my plan on charging for the video I created of my Master Class in Stock Photography. It is now “Pay what you want”. I do recognize there is a conflict between me talking about big earnings on the one hand and asking people with much lower earnings to pay for information – but, at the end of the day, why do I keep this blog going?

Back to the main story. The image is one I took in Kauai a few years back:

A stitched panorama of Hanalei Bay and Pier at dawn. I always like it as the sharp diagonal lines are not how you normally see this scene. The buyer had it framed at 52 x 26 inches and my profit was $105. Occasional sales like this renew my faith in Fine Art America. Here is the sale page.

    Congratulations! That’s a great sale.

    My long drought on FAA ended a month ago with a big fat $2.99 profit. 😉

    Ahoy Steve .. 1st, hooray for the sale. I always wonder about FAA and if anyone buys there, but then they’ve been there for quite the little while now so there’s that. I was curious about what a client would be paying for a framed image and went to look. Couldn’t find a 52 x 26 offered .. what am I missing ?? 🙂

      They probably paid around $300. I could find the print size – 40 inches wide – but they may have chosen a wider mat than standard. I think that results in the final size that they quoted.
