The way to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography marketplace has been flooded by digital photography with an endless ocean of photographers who want to sell their work. This informative article attempts to educate you on the best way to start selling your photography.

We see photographs each day, and a lot of them in connection with advertisements. Photographs of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify are not intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do buyers buy a wonderful photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They want to buy local photographs of local areas. They wish to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which the buyer does not identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The very first lesson is to shoot photographs of local scene. What are people 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 beautiful. Remember, however, that youwill have to photograph that scene in a way that they would not view as clear or common. Dress up the scene in amazing light and allow it to be stunning.

You must be pitiless if you plan on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your best pictures and put them in one folder in your computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the very first time and who wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' In the event the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. If the response is yes, then pick 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, so you will get inconsistent responses, there are 10,000 other pictures to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You could take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the average small time art buyer merely does not care. The truth is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the buyer just does not care. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A few things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can not find them, you aren't appearing, because they're EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a decal on each image for individuals to buy, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is the fact that the market is so saturated that it's extremely hard to sell. You need to go local, to overcome the group. Make your town proud of your town.
