How to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

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

We see pictures daily, and lots of them in connection with promotion. Photos of attractive landscapes which folks cannot identify are not fascinating to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do unless they really know where the scene is, buyers buy a lovely photograph of a seashore scene. They want to purchase local photos of local areas. They wish 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 first lesson is to shoot photographs of local scene. What are people 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, however, that youare going to need to photograph that scene in a way they wouldn't view as plain or ordinary. Dress the scene up in delightful light and also make it sensational.

You must be pitiless if you intend on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your best pictures 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 very 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 the event the reply is yes, then select 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, so you'll get responses that are conflicting, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You may be proud of the technical perfection of your pictures, and your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer just doesn't care. The truth is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer just doesn't care if you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV. 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 not find them, you aren't looking, because they are EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a sticker on each image for folks to buy, or submitting posts to your local paper with a link to your web site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is the fact that the marketplace is really saturated that it's extremely difficult to sell. To defeat the bunch, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
