Ways to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography marketplace has flooded with an endless ocean of photographers who wish to sell their work. This informative article attempts to teach you how to start selling your photography.

We see several of them, and pictures each day in connection with promotion. Photos of beautiful landscapes which people cannot identify aren't interesting to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do unless they really know where the scene is buyers buy a beautiful photograph of a beach scene. They want to buy local photos of places that are local. They would like to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which 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 people in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing the city? The pier going out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something wonderful. Remember, though, that you'll have to photograph that scene in ways that they would not view as clear or average. Dress up the scene in amazing light and make it spectacular.

If you intend on showing away your work, you need to be pitiless. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your very best images and place them in one folder in your computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the first time and who wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' In the event the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the answer is yes, then select 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, and that means you'll get answers that are conflicting, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other images to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You might 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 just does not care. The reality is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the buyer simply does not care. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your local fine art photography? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can't locate them, you aren't appearing, because they are EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a sticker on each image for individuals to purchase, or submitting posts to your local paper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is that the marketplace is really saturated that it is extraordinarily hard to sell. To beat on the bunch, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
