This is Jeff Giannonati, from somewheres around Buffalo (SD). The picture was shot at the Regional High School Rodeo at Tipperary Arena in Buffalo in 1984. Event winners advanced to the So Dak State HS Rodeo at New Underwood. Jeff fell short that year.
I have a number of images that are of similar quality in all aspects (good exposure, good action, unusual action). I have a lot more generically good rodeo shots. In most cases, I know who's in the shot. All were taken in the late-'70s-early-'80s.
I have decided to attempt to market some of these images. One of the questions is: What is a fair price for a technically proficient rendering of a moment like the one above preserved at 11x14 inches on "archival" paper printed on an inkjet with "archival" ink?
Most of the shots that express all that's going on in the one above were taken at western So Dak youth rodeos. That gives me a starting market of about one or two persons for each of about 100 photos--that is, those who appear in my best shots, or their mothers.
Some of those folks will want prints. How much can I get for one? What'll they pay?
In addition to coming up with a price that will satisfy everyone involved, I have to find a venue through which to get the prints in front of people who might like to buy them. I'll letcha know when I have an idea. Until then, I identify with the next shot of Jeff's Bareback Bronc experience of that day in 1984.
