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 informative article attempts to educate you on how to start selling your photography.

We see photos each day, and many of them in connection with advertisements. Photographs of attractive landscapes which people cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They want to purchase local photographs of places that are local. 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 shoot photos of local scene. What are people 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 wonderful. Remember, however, that you will need to photograph that scene in ways that they wouldn't view as clear or normal. Dress up the scene in amazing light and make it spectacular.

You need to be callous if you plan on showing your work off. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your very best pictures and place them in one folder in your personal computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the 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 reply is yes, then pick 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, so you'll get responses that are inconsistent, there are 10,000 other images to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You could be proud of the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club might be proud, but the average small-time art buyer simply does not care. The truth is the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just don't care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer only doesn't care if you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you really going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't find them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a sticker on each image for folks to purchase, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your web site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the marketplace is so saturated it is amazingly hard to sell. You have to go local to overcome the group. Make your town proud of your town.
