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

We see pictures each day, and lots of them in connection with advertising. Photographs of attractive landscapes which folks cannot identify are not fascinating 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: Rarely do buyers buy a wonderful photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They want to buy local photos of local places. They would like to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo that the buyer does not identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The very first lesson to learn is to shoot photos of local scene. 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 wonderful. Don't forget, however, that youwill have to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as plain or ordinary. Dress the scene up in delightful light and make it remarkable.

You must be ruthless, should you plan on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your best images and place them in one folder on your computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the first time and who wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' If the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the reply is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, and that means you will get answers that are inconsistent, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other pictures to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You may take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club may be proud, but the average small time art buyer merely does not care. The fact remains the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and just don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser only doesn't care if you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV. 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 ( in case you can not find them, you aren't looking, because they are EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a sticker on each image for individuals to buy, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your website.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the marketplace is really saturated that it's amazingly difficult to sell. You must go local to beat the group. Make your town proud of your town.
