The best way 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 would like to sell their work. This informative article attempts to teach you the way to start selling your photography.

We see lots of them, and photos daily in connection with advertising. Photos of beautiful landscapes which folks cannot identify are not intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do unless they really know where the scene is buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene. They want to buy local photographs of places that are local. They want 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 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, however, that you'll have to photograph that scene in ways they would not view as clear or normal. Dress the scene up in delightful light and make it dramatic.

You have to be ruthless, should you plan on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your very best pictures and place them in one folder on your own 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 answer is no, then take it out of your art show. If the answer is yes, then pick 10 of your friends who have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you'll get responses that are conflicting, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other pictures to pick from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You may be proud of the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club may be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer merely does not care. The simple truth is the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as beautiful, and just don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser only does not care. The evidence is in the pudding.

So where are you really going to sell your local fine art photography? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can't locate them, you aren't appearing, because they are EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a sticker on each image for people to buy, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your website.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains that the market is so saturated it is amazingly hard to sell. To defeat the group, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
