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

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

We see several of them, and pictures daily in connection with advertisements. Pictures of attractive landscapes which people cannot identify are not interesting to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to dozens of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do unless they know where the scene is buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a beach scene. They would like to buy local photographs of places that are local. They would like 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 shoot pictures of local scenery. What are folks 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. Don't forget, however, that you will have to photograph that scene in a way that they wouldn't view as plain or average. Dress the scene up in lovely light and allow it to be sensational.

You need to be pitiless if you intend on showing your work away. 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 very first time and who was not there to see the scene first hand?' In the event the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the response is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, and that means you will get responses that are conflicting, but it doesn't 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 may take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, and your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer simply doesn't care. The truth is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply don't care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer just doesn't care if you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV. The evidence 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 (if you can not locate them, you aren't appearing, because they're EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a sticker on each image for folks to purchase, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your web site.

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