How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography marketplace with an endless ocean of photographers who need to sell their work. This informative article attempts to educate you on the way to begin selling your photography.

We see photographs every day, and several of them in connection with advertising. Photos of beautiful landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't interesting to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Rarely do buyers buy a beautiful photograph of a seashore scene unless they know where the scene is. They would like to buy local photographs of areas that are local. They wish to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo that the buyer does not identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The very first lesson to learn is to shoot pictures of local scenery. 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, though, that youare going to need to photograph that scene in a way that they wouldn't view as plain or normal. Dress up the scene in amazing light and make it sensational.

Should you plan on showing off your work, you need to be pitiless. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your best images 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 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 reply is yes, then select 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, and that means you'll get responses that are conflicting, there are 10,000 other pictures to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You could take pride in the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club might be proud, but the typical small time art buyer simply doesn't care. The simple truth is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the buyer simply does not care. The proof 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 ( in case you can't find them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a sticker on each image for individuals to buy, or submitting posts to your local paper with a link to your site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains the fact that the marketplace is really saturated that it's extraordinarily difficult to sell. To beat on the bunch, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
