How to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

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

We see pictures each day, and many of them in connection with advertising. Photographs of beautiful landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't intriguing 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: Rarely do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They want to buy local photos of areas that are local. They want 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 would be to shoot photos of local scenery. What are people 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. Remember, though, that you will have to photograph that scene in a way that they would not view as clear or normal. Dress up the scene in exquisite light and make it sensational.

Should you intend on showing off your work, you have to be ruthless. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your best images and put them in one folder on 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 answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the answer is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, which means you will get contradictory answers, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

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

So where are you going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can't locate 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 sticker on each image for individuals to purchase, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is the fact that the market is so saturated that it's extremely difficult to sell. To overcome the bunch, you must go local. Make your town proud of your town.
