How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography market has been flooded by digital photography with an endless sea of photographers who need to sell their work. This article seeks to teach you the way to start selling your photography.

We see pictures daily, and many of them in connection with advertising. Photos of attractive landscapes which folks cannot identify are not intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do buyers buy a wonderful photograph of a beach scene unless they know where the scene is. They want to buy local photos of places that are local. They want to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo that the buyer doesn't identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The first lesson is to take photos of local scene. What are folks in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains surrounding the city? The pier going out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something wonderful. Remember, however, that you'll have to photograph that scene in a way they would not view as plain or ordinary. Dress up the scene in delightful light and make it dramatic.

Should you intend on showing away your work, you need to be callous. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your very best images and place them in one folder on your own computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the first time and who wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' In case the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. If the response is yes, then select 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, which means you will get responses that are contradictory, there are 10,000 other pictures to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You may take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer only doesn't care. The reality is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer just doesn't care if you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you really going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can't locate them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a decal on each image for folks to purchase, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is that the marketplace is really saturated that it is amazingly difficult to sell. To conquer on the group, you need to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
