I have had a number of people ask me about buying some of my photos and setting up a website to view other photos.
I have started a trial with smugmug and although found it a bit more complicated than it should be, I think it could work ok for me.
There are a number of other websites I've heard about like 500px, squarespace and zenofilio for example which I believe are quite good too. One of the reasons I decided to try smugmug is I have heard they have a bigger audience, so possibly more sales.
I have also heard some people suggest I should take control over the whole process when selling my work and number and sign each individually.
Now I'm not suggesting I'm the next Ken Duncan or anything, but can understand that having control over what goes on can be important knowing that the person at the other end is getting a quality product that I would be happy to send.
My concerns are with websites selling my work are how can I be sure of the quality? Do they have printing labs that check the image and let you know if the image quality isn't right before printing? Also things like frames, not sure if I'm happy with some of the frames offered at some places.
If I wanted control over the whole process, I guess I would need to find a printing lab that would let me know if an image wasn't right. Find someone with a good range of frames that I like.
I'm not sure how the process would work either, so if someone does have experience with this I would love to hear from them.
