Getting Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

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

We see several of them, and photographs daily in connection with marketing. Pictures of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't intriguing to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Rarely do unless they really know where the scene is buyers buy a beautiful photograph of a beach scene. They would like to purchase local photographs of places that are local. They want 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 photos of local scenery. What are people 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 amazing. Don't forget, however, that youwill need to photograph that scene in ways that they would not view as clear or average. Dress the scene up in lovely light and also make it remarkable.

You have to be ruthless should you plan on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your best images and place them in one folder in your 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?' If the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the answer is yes, then select 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, so you'll get contradictory responses, but it doesn't wow them, 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 could take pride in the technical perfection of your images, as well as your photo club may be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer only doesn't care. The truth is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser simply does not care if you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you really 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 appearing, 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 people to purchase, or submitting posts to your local paper with a link to your website.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is that the market is really saturated that it's extremely hard to sell. To conquer on the group, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
