How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

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

We see pictures every day, and several of them in connection with advertising. Pictures of gorgeous landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do unless they really know where the scene is buyers buy a beautiful photograph of a beach scene. They want to buy local photographs of areas that are local. They would like 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 to learn is to take photographs of local scene. What are folks 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. Remember, though, that you will need to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as plain or common. Dress up the scene in beautiful light and also make it remarkable.

If you plan on showing away your work, you must be callous. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all 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?' In case the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. If the reply is yes, then pick 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you'll get inconsistent answers, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other pictures to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You might 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 doesn't care. The simple truth is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and just don't care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the purchaser 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), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a decal on each image for folks to buy, or submitting posts to your local paper with a link to your site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains the fact that the market is really saturated that it is extremely hard to sell. To overcome on the group, you've got to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
