How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography marketplace has flooded with an endless ocean of photographers who wish to sell their work. This informative article attempts to teach you the best way to begin selling your photography.

We see photographs every day, and lots of them in connection with promotion. Photographs of attractive landscapes which people cannot identify are not intriguing to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers purchase a beautiful photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they know. They want to buy local photographs of areas that are local. They wish to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which the buyer doesn't identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The very first lesson to learn would be to take pictures of local scene. What are people in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains surrounding the city? The pier heading out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something amazing. Don't forget, however, that you'll need to photograph that scene in ways they would not view as clear or average. Dress up the scene in delightful light and allow it to be dramatic.

You have to be ruthless, if you plan on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your best pictures and place them in one folder on your personal computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the first time and who was not there to see the scene first hand?' In the event the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. If the response is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you will get contradictory responses, 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 images, and your photo club may be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer only does not care. The truth is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and simply don't care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser simply does not care. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you really 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), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a sticker on each image for folks to purchase, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The truth is the fact that the market is really saturated that it is amazingly difficult to sell. To overcome on the bunch, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
