How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography marketplace with an endless sea of photographers who need to sell their work. This informative article seeks to teach you the way to start selling your photography.

We see lots of them, and pictures each day in connection with advertising. Photographs of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't intriguing 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 unless they know where the scene is, buyers buy a lovely photograph of a beach scene. They would like to purchase local photos of local places. They want 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 photographs of local scenery. What are folks 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 youare going to have to photograph that scene in ways that they would not view as plain or common. Dress the scene up in delightful light and allow it to be remarkable.

You must be ruthless if you intend on showing your work off. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your 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 very 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 pick 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, and that means you will get responses 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 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 reality is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and simply do not care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the purchaser only doesn't care. The evidence 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 not 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 sticker on each image for people to buy, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

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