But is it Art?

Garden Photographers Get Creative

FriesenIn response to my post about garden photographers bringing in some extra cash by selling their art as notecards or in some other artsy format, I heard from Jeff Friesen, who offers prints of his work for sale through his Etsy shop.

It's lovely work, priced at only $30 for an 8 x 10 image, ready to frame.

What do you think?  Any other garden photographers out there experimenting with Etsy as a way to sell prints?

    His prints are lovely. I’m in the process of doing postcards and this year I have 2 calendars on Lulu.

    I have a large one: http://www.lulu.com/product/calendar/chiots-run-2010/5983030

    and a small one:http://www.lulu.com/product/calendar/2010-chiots-run-calendar-%28small%29/5983331

    I keep trying to figure out ways to make some money from the blog without ads, don’t want those.

  2. I created a calendar of my Garden Blogger Bloom Day scans at zazzle.com. I still haven’t received my first hard copy, so I don’t want to really promote it until I see if the quality is up to snuff. But you can see a preview here: http://www.remarc.com/craig/?p=771

    I have a shop on etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/creatingcharacter. I have made a couple of sales, some to people who were local so they bought directly from me instead of through my shop. I have trouble with promotion, I guess. I love to take the photographs and I would love to make money from them, but it’s just not in me to get out there and push my stuff, I suppose. I did have a shop on ebay and I never made a sale for my photography there, if that matters.

    Ok, I’m going to make a second comment here 🙂 Jeff’s work is awesome! I am very impressed. Chiot: I am glad to see that I am not the only person in the world who walks around in stores/markets with my camera taking pics. I saw the one with the price label in it. My mom keeps watch to make sure employees aren’t coming our way 🙂 Craig: Those are some nice shots from the Bloom Days. I just wanted to give my opinion 🙂

  5. I am looking into getting wheelbarrows for my garden and I found your article on garden photography a great read.

    Jeff’s print is lovely!

    I sell vintage-inspired botanical photos on Etsy and out of my home.
