The way to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

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 attempts to teach you how to start selling your photography.

We see photos each day, and many of them in connection with promotion. Photographs of gorgeous landscapes which people cannot identify aren't intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to dozens of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers purchase a beautiful photograph of a seashore scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They would like to purchase local photographs of areas that are local. 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 to learn is to shoot photos 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 amazing. Don't forget, though, that youwill need to photograph that scene in a sense they wouldn't view as plain or average. Dress the scene up in lovely light and also make it sensational.

You have to be pitiless if you intend on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your best images and place them in one folder on your computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the very first time and who wasn't 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 response is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, and that means you will get responses that are inconsistent, 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 be proud of the technical perfection of your images, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the average small time art buyer just doesn't care. The simple truth is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and just do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser just does not care if you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV. 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 ( 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 shop and then have a decal on each image for folks to purchase, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains the fact that the marketplace is so saturated that it is extremely hard to sell. To conquer the bunch, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
