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 want to sell their work. This informative article attempts to teach you the way to start selling your photography.

We see photos every day, and a lot of them in connection with advertisements. Pictures of gorgeous landscapes which people cannot identify are not intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For example, 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 lovely photograph of a seashore scene unless they really know where the scene is. They want to purchase local photos 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 very first lesson to learn is to shoot photographs of local scene. What are people 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 wonderful. Don't forget, however, that youwill have to photograph that scene in a sense they wouldn't view as plain or common. Dress the scene up in delightful light and also make it dramatic.

Should you intend on showing away your work, you must be callous. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your best images and put them in one folder in your personal 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. If the reply is yes, then choose 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 answers that are conflicting, 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 might take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer merely doesn't care. The fact remains 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 proof is in the pudding.

So where are you really going to sell your local fine art photography? A few things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't locate them, you aren't looking, because they are EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a decal on each image for folks to buy, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your web site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The truth is the fact that the market is so saturated it is extremely hard to sell. To defeat on the bunch, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
