How 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 need to sell their work. This informative article attempts to teach you the way to begin selling your photography.

We see photographs each day, and several of them in connection with advertising. Photos of beautiful 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 tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do unless they really know where the scene is buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene. They would like to purchase local photographs of places that are local. They wish 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 very first lesson is to shoot photographs of local scene. What are people 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, though, that youwill need to photograph that scene in a way that they wouldn't view as clear or average. Dress up the scene in delightful light and make it stunning.

If you plan on showing away your work, you have to be pitiless. 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 was not there to see the scene first hand?' In case the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the answer is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, so you'll get responses that are conflicting, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other images to pick 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 images, and your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer merely does not care. The reality is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer just doesn't care if you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV. The evidence 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 not 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 individuals to purchase, 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 that the market is really saturated it is extremely hard to sell. You've got to go local to beat the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
