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 would like to sell their work. This informative article seeks to educate you on how to begin selling your photography.

We see pictures every day, and several of them in connection with advertisements. Pictures of attractive landscapes which people cannot identify aren't fascinating 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 purchase a lovely photograph of a seashore scene. They would like to buy local photographs of areas that are local. They wish to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which the buyer doesn't identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The first lesson would be to shoot photographs of local scenery. 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 wonderful. Don't forget, though, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in ways that they wouldn't view as clear or average. Dress the scene up in delightful light and also make it sensational.

If you plan on showing off your work, you have to be callous. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your very best images 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 was not 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 that have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you will get inconsistent answers, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other pictures to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You might be proud of the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club may be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer merely doesn't care. The reality is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser only 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 going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can't locate them, you aren't looking, because they are EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a decal on each image for people to purchase, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is the fact that the market is really saturated it is amazingly hard to sell. To conquer the group, you need to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
