Ways to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

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

We see photographs every day, and many of them in connection with advertising. Pictures 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: Rarely do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene unless they know where the scene is. They want to purchase local photographs of places 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 to learn would be to shoot pictures of local scene. What are people in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing 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 need to photograph that scene in ways they would not view as plain or ordinary. Dress the scene up in beautiful light and also make it stunning.

You must be ruthless, if you intend on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your best pictures and put 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 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. In case the reply is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, so you will get conflicting answers, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other images 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 pictures, and your photo club might be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer only does not care. The truth is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and simply don't 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 really going to sell your local fine art photography? A couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't locate them, you aren't appearing, because they are EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a sticker 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 fact remains that the marketplace is really saturated it is extraordinarily hard to sell. You must go local to beat the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
