How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

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

We see pictures daily, and lots of them in connection with marketing. Pictures of attractive landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't intriguing 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 beautiful photograph of a seashore scene unless they know where the scene is. They want to purchase local photos of local places. They want 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 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 beautiful. Remember, though, that youwill have to photograph that scene in ways that they would not view as clear or average. Dress the scene up in delightful light and make it sensational.

Should you intend on showing your work off, you need to be pitiless. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your very best pictures and put them in one folder on your own personal 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 reply is no, then take it out of your art show. If the reply is yes, then pick 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It does not wow them, although photography is subjective, so you'll get responses that are inconsistent, there are 10,000 other pictures to select 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, and your photo club may be proud, but the average small time art buyer merely does not care. The simple truth is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and just don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the purchaser just does not care. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your local fine art photography? A few things you might try are art fairs (if you can't locate them, you aren't appearing, 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 people to buy, or submitting articles 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 so saturated it is extremely difficult to sell. To defeat the group, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
