The curse of success


General Photography

Here’s an interesting problem for you: Assume for a second that you’re a successful, actually a highly successful photographer whose photos sell for many thousands of dollars. Suddenly, only the very well-to-do can afford to buy your works! There you got a real problem because the market is quite small. What can be done? Here’s an interesting solution: As shown on The View from the Edge of the Universe, you start selling “production stills” from your photo sessions, which each are significantly cheaper than the actual photos but still expensive enough to generate some nice income. What an ingenious idea! Now, you’d only have to add t-shirts and mugs for those people (incl. yours truly) who can’t even afford the “production stills” and you got the whole market covered again!
