Now, in the last few months we saw a relevant increase in the sales of photographs as NFTs. That's a fact. I saw many of my colleagues sell some of their artworks for good money. I'm honestly so glad that some photographers got their work financially recognized because – whether you like it or not – we all have to pay the bills at the end of the month; if NFTs will help photographers to pay those bills and allow them to continue to produce their artworks, I'm all for it. I'm seeing many harsh comments towards “sell-out” photographers – but sometimes it's good to be with our feet on the ground, and money are a part of the photography business whether you like it or not. If you are a full time photographer, there's no doubt that this new market can be a huge opportunity for you, or at least an additional income to your core business.
Let's be careful though: from what I saw till this moment, this market is pretty much still in its early stages. There aren't many collectors in the market, and actually, all the biggest sales I've seen were made by one single collector. So, let me get this straight: if your works get noticed by this collector (or the other few of them that are currently looking for our kind of pictures), there might be a chance to sell them for a nice amount of money. Reserve price is up to you, but let's say that prices of landscape photographs are around 1-2-3ETH at the moment, give it or take. Translated into dollars, that's an amount of money that I'm sure a lot of you (me included) will consider relevant, or at least helpful. And prices are getting higher and higher each day. But do you really think that this market condition is sustainable – long term? Selling one-off pieces – if you get lucky to be in the graces of one collector - at really high prices? I don't think so. I think that we will soon see a stabilization of the market: don't ask me how, but things are going to change and we'll see who came in for a quick buck and who came instead to “play” the long term game.
