Ways to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

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

We see lots of them, and photographs every day in connection with marketing. Photos of attractive landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to dozens of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do unless they know where the scene is buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a beach scene. They would like to purchase local photographs of local places. 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 to learn is to take photographs of local scenery. What are folks in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing the city? The pier going out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something amazing. Don't forget, however, that you will need to photograph that scene in a sense they would not view as plain or ordinary. Dress the scene up in exquisite light and also make it stunning.

You have to be ruthless, should you intend on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your very best images and put 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 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. In case the response is yes, then select 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, and that means you'll get answers that are contradictory, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other images to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You might be proud of the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer just does not care. The fact remains the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just do not care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser only doesn't care. The proof is in the pudding.

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

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains that the market is so saturated that it's amazingly hard to sell. To overcome the group, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
