The 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 ocean of photographers who want to sell their work. This article attempts to educate you on the way to start selling your photography.

We see photographs each day, and a lot of them in connection with advertisements. Photographs of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers buy a beautiful photograph of a seashore scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They want to buy local photographs of local places. 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 to learn would be to shoot 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 beautiful. Remember, though, that you will need to photograph that scene in a way that they would not view as clear or common. Dress the scene up in amazing light and allow it to be dramatic.

If you intend on showing your work off, you need to be ruthless. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your very best images and put them in one folder on your own 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 case the answer 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 are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you will get inconsistent answers, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other pictures 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 pictures, as well as your photo club may be proud, but the average small-time art buyer merely does not care. The reality is the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just don't care if an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser simply doesn't care if you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A few things you might try are art fairs (if you can not locate them, you aren't appearing, 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 individuals to buy, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your web site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The truth is that the marketplace is so saturated it is extremely hard to sell. You need to go local to defeat the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
