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 would like to sell their work. This article seeks to teach you the way to start selling your photography.

We see pictures every day, and several of them in connection with advertisements. Photos of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers buy a lovely photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they know. They would like to buy local photos of areas that are local. They would like 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 scenery. 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 wonderful. Remember, however, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in a way that they wouldn't view as clear or normal. Dress up the scene in lovely light and allow it to be stunning.

You have to be ruthless, should you plan on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your best images and put 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 very first time and who wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' In the event the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. If the reply is yes, then select 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, and that means you'll get contradictory answers, but it doesn't wow them, 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 may take pride in the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club may be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer merely does not care. The simple truth is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and just do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. The buyer only doesn't care if you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT. The proof 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 not find them, you aren't appearing, because they are EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a decal on each image for people to purchase, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your website.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the market is so saturated that it's amazingly difficult to sell. To beat on the bunch, you must go local. Make your town proud of your town.
