How to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography marketplace with an endless sea of photographers who would like to sell their work. This article attempts to teach you the best way to start selling your photography.

We see lots of them, and photographs daily in connection with marketing. Photographs of beautiful landscapes which people cannot identify aren't intriguing 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 unless they know where the scene is buyers buy a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene. They want to purchase local photos 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 very first lesson to learn is to shoot photographs of local scene. 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 wonderful. Remember, though, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in a sense they would not view as clear or ordinary. Dress up the scene in lovely light and also make it remarkable.

You have to be pitiless should you plan on showing your work away. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your best pictures and place 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 case the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the answer is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, and that means you will get answers that are inconsistent, there are 10,000 other pictures to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You might take pride in the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club might be proud, but the typical small time art buyer just doesn't care. The fact remains the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. The buyer just does not care if you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT. 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 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 people 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 the fact that the market is really saturated that it's amazingly hard to sell. To conquer on the bunch, you need to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
