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

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography marketplace has flooded with an endless sea of photographers who wish to sell their work. This informative article seeks to educate you on how to start selling your photography.

We see pictures each day, and many of them in connection with advertisements. Pictures of attractive landscapes which people cannot identify aren't interesting to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene where the scene is, unless they know. They want to buy local photographs of places that are local. They would like to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which 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 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. Remember, however, that youare going to need to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as plain or normal. Dress the scene up in lovely light and make it stunning.

You must be ruthless if you plan on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your best pictures and place them in one folder in your 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 case the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the response is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It does not wow them, although photography is subjective, which means you'll get conflicting responses, there are 10,000 other images to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You may take pride in the technical perfection of your images, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the typical small time art buyer just doesn't care. The reality is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and just do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser only does not 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 fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can not locate them, you aren't looking, because they are EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a sticker on each image for individuals to buy, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your website.

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