How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

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

We see photographs each day, and a lot of them in connection with marketing. Pictures of gorgeous landscapes which individuals cannot identify are not fascinating to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Rarely do unless they really know where the scene is buyers purchase a lovely photograph of a seashore scene. They would like to purchase local photos of local places. They wish to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo that the buyer does not identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The very first lesson to learn is to shoot pictures of local scene. What are folks in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing the city? The pier heading out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something amazing. Remember, however, that you'll need to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as plain or average. Dress up the scene in exquisite light and make it dramatic.

You must be callous if you plan on showing your work off. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your very best pictures and place 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 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 answer is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, so you'll get answers that are contradictory, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other images to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You might be proud of the technical perfection of your images, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the typical small time art buyer only does not care. The reality is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser just does not care. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you really going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can not locate them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a decal on each image for folks to buy, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your website.

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