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

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

We see several of them, and photos every day in connection with marketing. Photos of beautiful landscapes which people cannot identify are not fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do unless they really know where the scene is, buyers purchase a lovely photograph of a seashore scene. They would like to buy local photos of local areas. 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 to learn is to take photos 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 beautiful. Don't forget, however, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in a sense they would not view as plain or average. Dress the scene up in exquisite light and make it sensational.

You need to be ruthless if you plan on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your best images and place them in one folder on your personal 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?' If the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. If the reply is yes, then pick 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, so you'll get answers that are conflicting, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You might take pride in the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer simply does not care. The simple truth is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer simply does not care if you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you really going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't find them, you aren't looking, 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 people to purchase, or submitting posts to your local paper 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 it is amazingly difficult to sell. To beat on the bunch, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
