The way 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 ocean of photographers who want to sell their work. This article attempts to educate you on how to start selling your photography.

We see lots of them, and pictures each day in connection with promotion. Photos of attractive landscapes which individuals cannot identify are not interesting to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers purchase a beautiful photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they know. They want to buy local photos of areas that are local. They would like 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 is to take pictures of local scenery. What are folks 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 amazing. Don't forget, though, that you'll have to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as plain or ordinary. Dress the scene up in beautiful light and allow it to be remarkable.

You have to be ruthless, should you intend on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your very best images and place 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 wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' If the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In case 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, so you will get inconsistent answers, there are 10,000 other images to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You may be proud of the technical perfection of your images, as well as your photo club may be proud, but the average small-time art buyer simply does not care. The simple truth is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, and simply do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer just 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 really going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A few things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't locate 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 sticker on each image for people to buy, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your web site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the market is really saturated that it is extremely hard to sell. You've got to go local, to overcome the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
