Ways to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography marketplace with an endless ocean of photographers who want to sell their work. This article attempts to teach you the best way to start selling your photography.

We see photos every day, and many of them in connection with marketing. Pictures of gorgeous landscapes which folks cannot identify are not fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've 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 lovely photograph of a seashore scene. They want to purchase local photos of local places. They would like 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 is to shoot photographs 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 wonderful. Don't forget, however, that youwill have to photograph that scene in ways they would not view as clear or normal. Dress the scene up in exquisite light and also make it dramatic.

You have to be pitiless should you intend on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your very best pictures and put them in one folder on your 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 case the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. If the answer is yes, then pick 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you will get responses that are contradictory, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other images to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You may take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club may be proud, but the average small time art buyer just does not care. The reality is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and just don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser just does not care. The evidence 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 (if 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 folks to buy, or submitting posts to your local paper with a link to your site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is the fact that the market is really saturated it is amazingly difficult to sell. To overcome the bunch, you must go local. Make your town proud of your town.
