„Marketing Fine Art Photography” – great book for photographers

Marketing Fine Art PhotographyIn recent years as the field of photography has exploded, many photographers consider selling their work to make a profit and to help defray the high costs of equipment. But, many photographers don’t have the business and marketing knowledge required to successfully sell fine art photographs; and many of those who have tried have been met with disappointment. Until now, little information of value has been available.

In Marketing Fine Art Photography, Alain Briot offers practical, up-to-date and field-tested marketing techniques from the viewpoint of a fine art landscape photographer who earns a living from the sale of his fine art prints.

Briot teaches that by taking control of the selling process, you can increase your profits and, ultimately, direct your own destiny. Briot’s approach is based on offering quality not quantity; and offering something unique, rather than something that is mass-produced. Though directed toward selling fine art, this method can be applied to other products.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Photography Backdrops

Photography Backdrops – Inexpensive Photography Backdrops and Prop Ideas
New, very interesting book by C. Pazetti. Special edition for Kindle. Backdrops and props are invaluable tools to a photographer. Particularly when taking portrait shots. But prices can range from a few hundred bucks to a couple thousand. After emptying your wallet on a camera, who has that kind of money? No problem. There are cheap photography backdrops and props all around you.
The purpose of a backdrop is to substitute for real life scenery. Why go for an obviously fake scene, when the real thing makes for so much better pictures? Get outside and visit the woods or a community park.
If you live in an area where nature is not easily accessible then head to a plant nursery.
