    Print trades.

    Ive been reading this thread:

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum50/4...d-comment.html

    How about an area for individual print trades, where somebody could post an offering for a print in trade for another? Trading is a great way to see others prints, and build a collection.

    I know about the group exchanges, but it might be a nice enrichment to the site if there was an active area where participants were trading 1 to 1.

    I know it could be done through the classifieds section, but I think it would be a richer experience as a forum.

    There was actually a gallery for this early on - did not get a lot of activity back then, but maybe it would now.

    I think a forum that would appear in the thread list when somebody made a post would be much more active.

    This seems like a good idea. What about discussion of the traded prints as well - what appeals, what it means, reason for the trade? Just some offerings.

    I posted in the aforementioned thread. I think it would be a great idea. Maybe call it 'APUG Personal Print Exchange' or something. I have lots of great images that I would love to share with fellow PUGgers and would love to exchange prints on a 1 to 1 basis. I would love to start a personal collection of other photographers that make beautiful images but don't have the name or the dollar to go along with it. I'm psyched. Let's do it.

    What do you guys think? would this be enough of a guideline set to get started?

    Suggestions?

    Guidelines:

    Post a print that you wish to trade. Please indicate the size, process, media, if and how it is mounted, and any other pertinent information, and perhaps an indication of somebody you might like to trade with, if you have a preference.

    Persons interested in trading may post their offering for a print in reply, with similar information.

    Remember, a trader may have only one print of an edition to trade, and so may have to make a tough decision. If your offering is not chosen, it don't take it personally, as it isn't an indictment of your work. Perhaps they have been trying to get a print from a particular photographer, only collect contact prints, or any other of a zillion reasons.

    Individuals are responsible for their own shipping costs respectively.

    I would especially encourage more advanced printers to make their work available to mentor and inspire our future generation of analog printers.

    In case of a deadbeat, please account for the vagaries of various postal systems, and make a reasonable effort to contact the other party. If there is no resolution after that, PM me and I will help to figure it out. Remember, some persons aren't online 24/7 , including me.

    This seems reasonable.
    One thing that has crossed my mind is copyright, not just for this topic but generally. When a print is exchanged/bought does the original owner give up all rights to the future use of the image?
    Clearly laws will differ across the globe.
    Regards,
    John.

    O.K. What about those that make great images but don't print them themselves?
    Thank you.
