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

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography market has been flooded by digital photography with an endless ocean of photographers who would like to sell their work. This article seeks to educate you on the way to begin selling your photography.

We see pictures daily, and several of them in connection with advertising. Photos of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify are not intriguing to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene unless they really know where the scene is. They want to purchase local photos of areas that are local. They wish to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which the buyer doesn't identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The very first lesson is to take photos of local scene. What are folks 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 amazing. Remember, though, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in ways that they would not view as plain or normal. Dress the scene up in beautiful light and allow it to be sensational.

Should you intend on showing your work away, you must be ruthless. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your best images and put them in one folder on 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 case the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the answer is yes, then pick 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It does not wow them, although photography is subjective, so you'll get responses that are conflicting, there are 10,000 other pictures to pick 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 may be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer simply does not care. The reality is the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply don't care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the purchaser simply does not care. The proof 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 ( 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 store and then have a decal on each image for folks to buy, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your web site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is that the market is so saturated that it's extraordinarily hard to sell. You need to go local to overcome the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
