How to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography marketplace has flooded with an endless sea of photographers who need to sell their work. This article attempts to teach you the best way to begin selling your photography.

We see a lot of them, and pictures every day in connection with marketing. Photos of gorgeous landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't intriguing 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: Seldom do unless they know where the scene is buyers buy a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene. They want to buy local photos of areas that are local. They wish 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 would be to shoot pictures of local scenery. 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 wonderful. Remember, though, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in a way they wouldn't view as clear or common. Dress up the scene in amazing light and also make it stunning.

You need to be pitiless should you intend on showing your work off. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your very best pictures and put 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 wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' If the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the reply is yes, then pick 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 conflicting responses, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You might be proud of the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer only does not care. The reality is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the purchaser just does not care. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your local fine art photography? A couple of 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 decal on each image for individuals to purchase, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The truth is the fact that the market is so saturated that it's extraordinarily difficult to sell. To conquer on the group, you've got to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
