How to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography market with an endless ocean of photographers who would like to sell their work. This article seeks to teach you the best way to start selling your photography.

We see photos daily, and a lot of them in connection with advertisements. Photos of attractive landscapes which individuals cannot identify are not fascinating to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do buyers purchase a beautiful photograph of a seashore scene unless they really know where the scene is. They would like to purchase local photos of places that are local. They want 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 very first lesson to learn is to take photographs 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, though, that youare going to need to photograph that scene in ways that they wouldn't view as plain or ordinary. Dress the scene up in exquisite light and also make it stunning.

You need to be pitiless if you plan on showing your work away. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your very best pictures and put them in one folder on your own personal 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. If the answer is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, so you'll get conflicting answers, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other images to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You could be proud of the technical perfection of your images, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer only doesn't care. The fact remains the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just do not care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser just doesn't 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 ( in case you can not locate them, you aren't appearing, because they are EVERYWHERE), putting 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 articles to your local newspaper with a link to your website.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The truth is the fact that the market is so saturated that it is extremely hard to sell. To beat the bunch, you must go local. Make your town proud of your town.
