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

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

We see photographs daily, and lots of them in connection with advertisements. Photographs of gorgeous landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers buy a wonderful photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They want to purchase local photographs of local places. They want 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 to learn is to take pictures 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, however, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in ways they would not view as clear or average. Dress up the scene in delightful light and make it spectacular.

Should you plan on showing your work away, you have to be pitiless. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your very best images 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 wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' In the event the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the answer is yes, then select 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It does not wow them, although photography is subjective, which means you'll get conflicting responses, there are 10,000 other pictures to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

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

So where are you going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can not find 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 people to purchase, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the market is really saturated it is amazingly hard to sell. To conquer the bunch, you've got to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
