Sell Fine Art Photography Online
Fine art photography refers to photographs that are created in accordance with the creative vision of the photographer as artist. Fine art photography stands in contrast to photojournalism (which provides visual support for news stories, mainly in the print media) and commercial photography (the primary focus of which is to advertise products or services).
Fine art photography can fetch a handsome price for the artist. The challenge with selling fine art photographs is finding the proper market. Photographers who are not well known of their own accord need to make their work available to the public. Many photographers seek out gallery showings of their work, or even approach local businesses to display their work in stores, cafes, and other venues for sale.
Selling fine art photography online can be a challenge for many photographers; you have to truly employ some self-promotion and online marketing to get people to view your photos. You also need a quality online photo gallery so that your images have the maximum impact possible without being seen in real life. Entering into photo contests, sharing your work with the photography community via forums and blogs, and in general displaying your work wherever possible is a key to getting attention to your art. While a sale of a fine art photo can be a windfall of sorts, they tend to be few and far between for all but the most prominent art photographers.
