I looked at other photographers work and their prices.
Just like we know the scale of our own personal beauty, we also know where our creativity level lies.
I also wanted to make at least 50% on the cost of creating the print. 
So if a print cost me eg. $30 to create/print/frame, etc. My minimum price would be $60. 
Then I would see how $60 compared with other photographers work the market. 
One can work through an agent, but they would take a huge percentage of the selling price. 
The advantage is that other people find it far easier to market our work. 
Creators are not good at boosting their own work, because a vast majority of us are modest about it.

You'll need to invest a little time and see what other photographers are charging for similar prints to your style.  Then look at how they are offering the print and any other small print along with that.  Then if you don't have brand recognition, consider pricing a little lower.
