Arts & Crafts Shows – Slideshow

I did Arts & Crafts Fairs mostly 2004-2007 with a little overlap into 03 & 08. It was fun at first and a whole different world of people and situations. But I was developing serious backaches from both lifting and standing too much AND the bottom line financially was a continued loss with too much overhead for what was not volume sales. I could not charge more for my unique services because of the competition from many other nature photographers in every show! My most popular formats were the greeting cards (cheaper) and a toss up between 8×10 and 11×14 matted photos. “Ready to Hang” laminated on foam core boards were pretty popular, but more expensive.

My most popular image, especially with women was this dragonfly photo:
