Ways to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography market has flooded with an endless ocean of photographers who need to sell their work. This article seeks to educate you on how to begin selling your photography.

We see photographs each day, and several of them in connection with marketing. Pictures of gorgeous landscapes which people cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For instance, 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 beautiful photograph of a seashore scene unless they really know where the scene is. They would like to purchase local photos of areas that are local. They would like 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 shoot pictures of local scenery. 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 beautiful. Don't forget, however, that you will have to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as plain or ordinary. Dress the scene up in amazing light and also make it dramatic.

Should you plan on showing away your work, you have to be ruthless. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your best images 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 the event the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the response is yes, then select 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It does not wow them, although photography is subjective, and that means you'll get responses that are conflicting, 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 may 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 only does not care. The truth is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just don't care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the buyer simply does not care. The proof is in the pudding.

So where are you really going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't find 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 folks to buy, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your website.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the market is so saturated that it's extremely difficult to sell. To beat the bunch, you've got to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
