Sale of photographs
What you can buy:
In my opinion, the photograph is only the real paper picture or its other physical analogy. Therefore I don´t sell any computer files but only the real blow-ups with personally guaranteed origin described in “author´s tag” (see below).
Photography is a reproductive art and theoretically we can produce almost neverending number of copies of the chosen photo. However, people interested in the pictures should be sure that only limited number of blow-ups was made. Therefore, I commit in one part of the contract that maximally X pieces of the signed blow-ups (so far I´ve used X = 10-25 pieces, in the number 2 or 3 author´s copies for my personal usage aren´t included) will be produce. Size of the blow-ups and “author´s tags” (with my signature, the photo title and with infos about place and time of the photo scenery) guarantee that the picture was made from author´s digital or film original and not from not official sources, e.g. from internet. Number of the specific blow-up has to be filled directly in “author´s tag” of the picture and mentioned in the text of the contract.
I commit in the contract that I won´t sell the photos rights to another person (e.g. a photobank). The original digital file or the original negative must stay in my ownership.
Price of the photographs:
Standard format of the photos is the size 70x50 cm (it´s the format of the pictures from the Dobřichovice and Prague exhibitions). The indicative price of one picture is from 130 EUR to 200 EUR (without the frame), it depends on " the photo history" and blow-up sequence number. In the special cases (e.g. the last blow-ups of the very demanding pictures) the price could be even higher. It depends always on many other views, every business is therefore negotiated individually and with individual conditions and I handle it strictly personally. I would like to personally meet every person that wants to buy some of my pictures. Of course I want to ensure personally full satisfaction of such persons with the choice and the final quality of the pictures, as well. You really can´t find here any anonymous e-shop :-).
