The best way to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

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

We see several of them, and pictures every day in connection with advertising. Photographs of beautiful 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 tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Rarely do unless they really know where the scene is buyers buy a beautiful photograph of a beach scene. They want to purchase local photographs of places that are local. They would like 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 is 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, however, that you will need to photograph that scene in a sense that they wouldn't view as clear or average. Dress the scene up in amazing light and also make it remarkable.

You need to be pitiless should you plan on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your very best pictures and put them in one folder in 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. If the reply 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 responses that are conflicting, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other pictures to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You could take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer merely doesn't care. The fact remains that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the buyer just 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 ( 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 store and then have a sticker on each image for people to purchase, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the marketplace is really saturated that it's extraordinarily difficult to sell. You've got to go local to defeat the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
