What Digital SLR Attributes Are Fantastic For Photography For Akulivik Quebec

How to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

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

We see pictures each day, and a lot of them in connection with advertising. Photographs of gorgeous landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Rarely do unless they know where the scene is, buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene. They would like to buy local photos of local areas. They wish 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 very first lesson would be to shoot photographs 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 amazing. Remember, though, that you will need to photograph that scene in ways that they wouldn't view as clear or common. Dress up the scene in lovely light and also make it stunning.

You have to be ruthless should you plan on showing your work away. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your best pictures and place them in one folder on your 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?' In case the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the answer is yes, then choose 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It does not wow them, although photography is subjective, and that means you will get contradictory responses, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You could take pride in the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club may be proud, but the average small-time art buyer just does not care. The reality is the fact that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. The buyer just does not 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 local fine art photography? A few things you might try are art fairs (if you can not locate them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a sticker on each image for people to buy, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your website.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is the fact that the marketplace is so saturated that it is extremely difficult to sell. To conquer the bunch, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
