How 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 would like to sell their work. This informative article seeks to educate you on how to begin selling your photography.

We see many of them, and photographs every day in connection with marketing. Photos of attractive landscapes which people cannot identify are not interesting to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to dozens of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Rarely do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They want to purchase local photos of areas that are local. They want 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 first lesson would be to take pictures of local scene. What are people 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 beautiful. Don't forget, though, that youwill need to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as plain or common. Dress the scene up in delightful light and also make it sensational.

You need to be pitiless, if you intend on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your best pictures and put 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?' If the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the response is yes, then select 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, so you will get responses that are conflicting, there are 10,000 other images to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

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

So where are you going to sell your local fine art photography? A few things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't locate them, you aren't appearing, because they are EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a sticker on each image for people to buy, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains the fact that the marketplace is really saturated it is extraordinarily difficult to sell. To beat on the bunch, you must go local. Make your town proud of your town.
