How to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography market with an endless ocean of photographers who would like to sell their work. This article seeks to teach you the best way to start selling your photography.

We see a lot of them, and photos every day in connection with advertising. Photos of gorgeous 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: Infrequently do buyers purchase a lovely photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They would like to purchase local photos of places that are local. They would like 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 would be to shoot photos 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 amazing. Don't forget, though, that youare going to need to photograph that scene in a way they wouldn't view as clear or average. Dress the scene up in lovely light and make it dramatic.

You need to be pitiless, should you plan on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your best pictures and place 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 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 are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you'll get inconsistent responses, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other pictures to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You may be proud of the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer just does not care. The truth is the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, 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 buyer just doesn't care. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A few things you might try are art fairs (if you can't locate them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a decal on each image for individuals 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 that the market is so saturated it is extraordinarily difficult to sell. You need to go local, to conquer the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
