You should sell your photos! Have you ever heard this? I heard it last year for the first time. Had I known how much work it took, I still would have done it. I am driven by my thirst to get the next image that others will think is incredible enough that they want to spend their hard earned money to enjoy for years to come.
But don’t get me wrong, it is not the easiest thing to do. I encourage anyone who wants to sell their photos to do so. You just need to find the right audience. That is something that you want to consider for sure.
Most photographers will hear from friends that they do so such great work that they should sell them, but you really want to get a feel for how others think about your images. While your friends and family have nothing but the best intentions to give you the confidence, you really want an outside perspective or public opinion to really see where you are at. That starts with getting your work out there and being open to any feedback you’ll get.
Have confidence in your work and listen to opinions of what you should do different, but stay true to your vision.
Finding a pricing level is another tough part to think about. Are you going to sell to high end clients or do you want to sell more affordable prints?
Always remember that many people will tell you how great your photos are, but if you want to get into the world of selling them you just want to have a tough skin and remember that in the long run you’ll see the profits coming in.
Good luck and keep the positive thoughts going.
