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 sea of photographers who would like to sell their work. This informative article attempts to educate you on the best way to start selling your photography.

We see several of them, and pictures each day in connection with advertising. Photographs of attractive landscapes which individuals cannot identify are not 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: Rarely do unless they really know where the scene is, buyers buy a lovely photograph of a beach scene. They want to purchase local photos of places that are local. They wish 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 would be to shoot pictures of local scenery. What are people 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. Don't forget, 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 amazing light and allow it to be sensational.

Should you intend on showing away your work, you have to be pitiless. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your best images and put them in one folder on your own personal 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?' If 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.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, and that means you will get conflicting answers, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You may take pride in the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club may be proud, but the typical small time art buyer just does not care. The fact remains that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and simply don't care if an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser only doesn't 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 couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't 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 buy, or submitting articles to your local paper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is that the market is so saturated it is extremely hard to sell. You need to go local to conquer the group. Make your town proud of your town.
