How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

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

We see pictures daily, and a lot of them in connection with promotion. Photos of gorgeous landscapes which people cannot identify are not interesting to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to dozens of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Rarely do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a beach scene unless they know where the scene is. They want to buy local photos of places that are local. They want 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 first lesson to learn would be to take pictures of local scenery. What are folks in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains surrounding the city? The pier going out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something beautiful. Don't forget, however, that youwill need to photograph that scene in a way they wouldn't view as plain or average. Dress the scene up in delightful light and also make it sensational.

You must be pitiless if you intend on showing your work away. 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 first time and who was not there to see the scene first hand?' In the event the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. If the reply is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, so you'll get inconsistent responses, 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 might take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the typical small time art buyer just doesn't care. The fact remains the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not 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 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't find them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a decal on each image for folks to purchase, or submitting posts to your local paper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is that the marketplace is so saturated that it's amazingly difficult to sell. To beat the group, you must go local. Make your town proud of your town.
