How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography marketplace with an endless ocean of photographers who need to sell their work. This informative article seeks to educate you on the best way to begin selling your photography.

We see pictures every day, and several of them in connection with advertising. Photos of beautiful landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't 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: Infrequently do unless they know where the scene is, buyers purchase a lovely photograph of a beach scene. They would like to purchase local photos of places that are local. They wish 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 is to take photos of local scenery. What are people in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing the city? The pier going out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something amazing. Don't forget, though, that you'll need to photograph that scene in a way they would not view as clear or normal. Dress up the scene in beautiful light and also make it dramatic.

You need to be pitiless should you intend on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your very best pictures and place them in one folder in 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 reply is no, then take it out of your art show. If the reply is yes, then select 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It does not wow them, although photography is subjective, and that means you'll get contradictory responses, there are 10,000 other images to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You could take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, and your photo club might be proud, but the typical small time art buyer only doesn't care. The fact remains the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply don't care if an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser just 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 few things you might try are art fairs (if you can not find them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), putting 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 newspaper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains that the marketplace is really saturated it is extraordinarily hard to sell. You've got to go local to beat the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
