Getting 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 want to sell their work. This article seeks to teach you the best way to begin selling your photography.

We see pictures daily, and many of them in connection with marketing. Photos of attractive 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 heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers buy a lovely photograph of a seashore scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They would like to buy local photos of local places. They wish 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 is to take photos 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 amazing. Remember, however, that youwill need to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as clear or common. Dress up the scene in delightful light and also make it stunning.

You have to be ruthless if you intend on showing your work away. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your 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 was not there to see the scene first hand?' If the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the reply is yes, then pick 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, so you will get inconsistent answers, 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 might be proud of the technical perfection of your pictures, and your photo club may be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer only doesn't care. The truth is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and just do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the buyer just doesn't care. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your local fine art photography? A few things you might try are art fairs (if you can't locate them, you aren't looking, 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 individuals to purchase, or submitting posts to your local paper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is the fact that the marketplace is so saturated that it's extraordinarily hard to sell. You need to go local, to conquer the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
