Selling pictures. Deontological code : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Printing & Finishing : One Thread

As new in this bussiness, I'm worried about what I must do. Of course that I want archival conservation, but there are lots of other deontological problems, such as: does we, as professionals must tell the consumer of the "cares" that a picture needs, as humidity, light exposure, etc ? Reading some of the discussions of this forum, I found one that was really interesting. The problems around taking pictures, and print pictures. So now I will post in the back all the informations, as when the picture was taken, who made the print, when it was made, number of previous prints, etc. Really what I'm interested is: is there any deontological code ? I'm european, so are there different deontological codes ? Where can I learn about it ? Thank's

Thanks for introducing me to a new word. I think you covered about all the stuff a customer needs to know about a print.

"An Ounce of Preservation" by Craig Tuttle and "Conservation of Photographs" - Kodak publication No F-40 by George Eaton, will be a good source of useful information . Boa sorte.

Keith: As I told you in a direct e-mail, i Think this is just the tip of a huge iceberg, and that were questions of an amateur who is trying to sell pictures...

Manuel: Thank's. Do you know here can I have access to those books, here in Portugal ?
