You can have unbelievable landscape photographs ,but it might be difficult to make money. You can have a stunning artistic shot, but if there isn't a celebrity or product in the photograph, it's difficult to make money. If you love to take pictures for purely personal enjoyment, this article won't add much to your life. This is for the people who want to make money from their work.
For now, here is the shortcut to help you out.
Would you like your images hanging in small hotels and B&B's? This is an option many people don't explore, and it's a win/win moment for everyone. Quite honestly, I'd rather have my work hanging in a boutique hotel instead of a major chain. I'm entirely okay with saying my work is currently hanging at the "so and so hotel" and adding a fake French accent for decoration. You cannot do that with your local Hilton.
Staging companies are a big deal, and in places with high real estate value, they add much to the market. Real estate agents look to staging companies to move expensive property. Do you know what clients who buy expensive homes want? They want unique art. Do you know what photographers who sell art prints want? They want clients who appreciate their work. It's another win/win!
Your work should be in movies! Seriously, tv and film productions need the artwork to furnish the sets. They pay a lot, they have budgets, rules, quick turnarounds, and they don't want headaches. You need exposure and bragging rights.
There is money in art prints, and I wanted to present a few new ways that are proven. The video provides far more detail to help you out.
Here are a few more notes about selling any kind of photography prints. Art is different for each person, and one person rejecting you isn't a consensus. There are people who consider art things shot only on film. There are other photographers who insist photographing colored smoke is artistic and original. We get a full spectrum, but you have a place on that spectrum, no matter what people tell you.
Your work is deserving of being on a wall, and you are deserving of charging for your work. If you're going to sell art prints, be prepared to have really deep lows and amazing highs. Unlike an e-commerce shoot, art prints are highly personal. When they reject the work, it may feel they're rejecting you. When they embrace your art, it feels like you're the MVP. Learn to appreciate the highs, but also learn to be compassionate to yourself during the lows.
Put a print on the wall. Some people will think it's garbage, while others won't be able to stop looking at it. You cannot let either situation stop you from sharing your work with the world!
