    Hello all

    I am new on this forum. I am a french fine art photographer , known by some here as I am also member of other U.S. list.
    I work with medium andlarge format camera for a long time and I am a fanatic of alternatiive process. I work a lot in Platinuum palladium, but I aso o some carbon, gum and so on.

    I find this forum really interesting as it not limited to Alt but have a global view of the Photographic craft.

    Welcome, Christian. Good to see you on APUG.

    I noticed you were advertising some of your prints on eBay. How has your experience been with marketing prints this way?

    Hello all

    David I just can make a good report on marketing fine art prints on ebay. For sure for unknown photographer like me , price is low but it keep correct. For the moment I can make a living selling my photography on ebay, it takes time to have collectors but it is the easiest way I find for the moment.
    The best thing on ebay is that you can advertise your work for not much money.
    Get in contact with serious collectors.
    Being free of selling what you want .
    And direct contact with the collectors.

    There re other photographer like Georges Provost and Luca Paradisi who also sell nice work on ebay. I am also a original print buyer ad collector and find ebay to be a great place.

    Thanks for the info, Christian. I've also seen Provost's work, and he sometimes appears on the Azo forum and www.michaelandpaula.com.
