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

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

We see photos every day, and several of them in connection with promotion. Photographs of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they know. They want to purchase local photographs of places that are local. They would like 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 to learn would be to take pictures 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 beautiful. Don't forget, however, that you will have to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as clear or common. Dress up the scene in amazing light and make it sensational.

You must be pitiless if you intend on showing your work away. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your best images and put them in one folder in your personal 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?' If the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. If the reply is yes, then choose 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you will get conflicting responses, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other images to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You might be proud of the technical perfection of your pictures, and your photo club might be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer just does not care. The reality is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, 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 purchaser only does not care. The proof is in the pudding.

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

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is the fact that the market is really saturated that it is extremely difficult to sell. You have to go local to conquer the group. Make your town proud of your town.
