Ways to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

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

We see pictures every day, and several of them in connection with marketing. Photos of beautiful landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do unless they know where the scene is, buyers purchase a lovely photograph of a beach scene. They would like to buy local photos of local places. 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 to learn would be to shoot photographs of local scenery. What are folks in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing the city? The pier going out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something beautiful. Don't forget, though, that you will need to photograph that scene in ways they wouldn't view as plain or normal. Dress up the scene in exquisite light and make it sensational.

You need to be callous should you intend on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your very best pictures and put 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 very first time and who was not there to see the scene first hand?' If the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. If the answer is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, which means you'll get answers that are contradictory, there are 10,000 other pictures to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You may be proud of the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club may be proud, but the typical small time art buyer just does not care. The simple truth is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser just doesn't care. The proof is in the pudding.

So where are you really going to sell your local fine art photography? A couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can not find them, you aren't appearing, 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 individuals to purchase, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your web site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the market is so saturated that it is amazingly difficult to sell. To overcome the bunch, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
