The way to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

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

We see photographs daily, and several of them in connection with advertising. Pictures of attractive landscapes which people cannot identify are not intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Rarely do unless they really know where the scene is buyers buy a wonderful photograph of a beach scene. They would like to purchase local photographs of local areas. They want to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo that the buyer does not identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The first lesson to learn is to take photos of local scenery. What are folks 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 beautiful. Don't forget, though, that youare going to need to photograph that scene in ways that they would not view as clear or common. Dress up the scene in beautiful light and also make it sensational.

You need to be ruthless if you intend on showing off your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all your very best images and put them in one folder in your 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 answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the reply is yes, then select 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, and that means you will get inconsistent answers, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other pictures to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You may be proud of the technical perfection of your images, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the average small time art buyer only doesn't care. The truth is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer just 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 couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't locate them, you aren't appearing, because they're 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 paper with a link to your website.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the market is really saturated that it is amazingly hard to sell. To conquer on the group, you've got to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
