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

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography market has flooded with an endless ocean of photographers who need to sell their work. This informative article seeks to teach you how to start selling your photography.

We see lots of them, and photos each day in connection with marketing. Photos of beautiful landscapes which people cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers buy a lovely photograph of a beach scene unless they really know where the scene is. They would like to purchase local photographs of areas that are local. They want 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 first lesson would be to shoot pictures of local scenery. What are folks in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing the city? The pier heading out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something amazing. Don't forget, however, that youwill have to photograph that scene in a sense they would not view as plain or average. Dress the scene up in beautiful light and make it dramatic.

You must be callous should you intend on showing your work off. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your best pictures and place 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 was not there to see the scene first hand?' In case the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the reply is yes, then select 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, and that means you'll get answers that are inconsistent, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You may take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, and your photo club may be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer only does not care. The simple truth is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, and simply don't care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser just does not care. The proof is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your local fine art photography? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can't find them, you aren't looking, because they are EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a sticker on each image for folks to buy, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your web site.

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