Ways to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography market with an endless ocean of photographers who would like to sell their work. This article seeks to educate you on the way to begin selling your photography.

We see photographs each day, and many of them in connection with advertising. Pictures of attractive landscapes which folks cannot identify are not 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 lovely photograph of a beach scene. They want to buy local photos of areas that are local. They wish 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 very first lesson would be to shoot photographs of local scene. What are folks 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. Don't forget, however, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in a way that they wouldn't view as plain or common. Dress up the scene in lovely light and make it sensational.

You need to be ruthless, if you intend on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your very best images and put them in one folder on your own 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 case the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. If the response is yes, then pick 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It does not wow them, although photography is subjective, so you will get responses that are contradictory, there are 10,000 other pictures to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You could take pride in the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club may be proud, but the average small time art buyer just does not care. The truth is the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, and simply don't care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer simply 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 (if you can not 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 individuals to buy, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains the fact that the market is so saturated that it's extremely hard to sell. To conquer the group, you've got to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
