How much does one print cost?
This remembers me on a situation when I had a show and a friend who is driving car for more then 50.000 EUR, asked me a question how much does it cost me to make one print. I said excuse me? Well… he said, my partner really likes your pictures and I want to give him a your print as a gift and I want to pay for your costs of a print.
I couldn’t believe the question, but since we were friends from elementary school, I said politely. Well the price is under the picture, but let’s do simplified math and calculate how much does it cost me to make one print.
– I studied in Prague for four years and that was about 50.000 DEM
– and my postgraduate studies in London was about 25.000 EUR
– the camera and lenses that I used costs about 2500 EUR
– a roll of film is 5 Eur each and I used about 30 rolls
– processing is about 4 eur / slide film
– work prints are 0,5 EUR each and I used 100 of them
– In the lab they charge 40 EUR per single print 1 x 1,5 meters.
SO YOU TELL ME HOW MUCH DOES ONE PRINT COST ME?
