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

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

We see photographs every day, and a lot of them in connection with advertising. Pictures of attractive landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do buyers buy a beautiful photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They would like to buy local photographs of places 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 would be to take photographs of local scenery. What are folks in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains surrounding the city? The pier going out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something beautiful. Remember, though, that you will need to photograph that scene in a sense they would not view as clear or average. Dress the scene up in delightful light and allow it to be stunning.

Should you plan on showing your work off, you must be ruthless. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your 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 first time and who was not there to see the scene first hand?' If 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 does not wow them, although photography is subjective, which means you will get answers that are contradictory, there are 10,000 other images to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You could be proud of the technical perfection of your images, as well as your photo club may be proud, but the typical small time art buyer simply does not care. The truth is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser simply doesn't care if you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A few things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't find them, you aren't appearing, 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 people to purchase, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is the fact that the marketplace is really saturated that it is extremely difficult to sell. To defeat on the group, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
