Ways to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

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

We see photographs every day, and lots of them in connection with advertisements. Photographs of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify are not 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 know where the scene is, buyers buy a lovely photograph of a beach scene. They would like to buy local photos of local places. 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 is to take photographs of local scene. What are people in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing 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 have to photograph that scene in a way that they would not view as plain or average. Dress up the scene in delightful light and make it dramatic.

You need to be ruthless, if you intend on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your very best images 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 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. If the response is yes, then select 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, so you'll get conflicting answers, there are 10,000 other pictures to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures 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 average small time art buyer merely does not care. The fact remains that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and just do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser simply 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 really going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A few things you might try are art fairs (if you can not find 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 decal on each image for individuals to purchase, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your web site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is that the marketplace is so saturated it is extremely hard to sell. You've got to go local, to defeat the group. Make your town proud of your town.
