New Book: Marketing Fine Art Photography



Click here to download the table of contents

1- Marketing Fine Art Photography
My third book, Marketing Fine Art Photography, is available. As the title implies this book focuses on the knowledge and skills necessary to sell and market fine art photography successfully and profitably. The book features 21 chapters and is 315 pages long.

The Cover and the table of contents for this book are available in PDF Format by clicking here. The table of contents features the titles of all 21 chapters.


This book that tells you how I went from “rags to riches.”  Plus, it tells you exactly not only how I did it but also, and more importantly, how you can do it too! There is nothing quite like it available elsewhere. 

2 - Learn how to create best selling images.
We all want best sellers.  The book explains how to create not only one, but many best selling images.  It’s easy once someone explains you how to do it! The book also tells you what are the best selling images and subjects. It also teaches you how to create best sellers yourself and gives you two proven and tested approaches to doing so!

This knowledge is based not on theory but on practice.  It is based on me finding out, through selling my work since 1997, what photographs, framing, etc. customers prefer, what they want and what they will pay the most for.

No other professional photographer shares this information.  No one else tells you how what are their best selling images and how to create bestsellers. Instead, other professionals keep this information “close to their chest.” Me, in this book, I let it all “out of the bag.”  I give it all to you.  Why?  Because I want to compete on the basis of the quality of the images, not on the basis of knowing something that you do not know.  If there is competition, and there is at times, then I want this competition to take place on a level field.  I want the best photographer to win, not the photographer who knows something that others don’t know. 

I also want you to have access to information that, until now, one had no way of finding out without spending years searching for it. Until this book, this information was all over the place.  You had to look in a multitude of places to find it, and then you had to piece it all together so that you could make use of it. What I did in writing this book is make this information available in one place.  This information did take me years to gather and piece together but now it is all in one single place and it is easily accessible.

3 - About Companion Prints:
Your collectable book set is delivered with your choice of a Matted Companion or Master Print. The print I selected for this special offer is Yavapai Dusk, three of my favorite images and the cover image of this new book.

Matted Companion Prints are valued at $175 each. They are not sold individually. They are only available in combination with books, tutorials, DVDs and other major projects.
Companion prints are presented in 8x10 museum quality matting. Companion prints are released in an open edition and are printed on Ilford Gold Fibre paper on Epson 4880 running under ImagePrint using Epson inks.

Companion Prints are printed, curated, matted and packaged to museum standards, the same standards we follow for all my work.

By purchasing a Companion print set during this special offer, you save over $100 compared to buying the Print + Book + Shipping at full price. By purchasing 2 or 3 books and companion prints set, you save even more (see the table below).

4 - About Master Prints:

Matted Master Prints are valued at $395 in the Print of the Month Collection and at $595 when not part of the Print of the Month collection. Master prints are presented in 16x20 museum quality matting. The Master Print in this offer is released in an edition of 100 copies. Each print carries a special label and marking clearly indicating that this is a unique, limited edition print.

Since I do not normally number prints unless they are part of a portfolio, this print is an exception and a rarity in itself. Master prints are not usually released in limited editions, making this Master Print uniquely collectible and rare. This limited edition release is only available during this special offer. We expect it to sell out quickly because of its rarity.

Master Print Sets include the Master Files for Dancing Light, Playa Reflections and Yavapai Dusk. Master Files allow you to see exactly how I created the final print file, including all the adjustments, contrast, color, and enhancement layers. Having the Master Files lets you see exactly how I prepared each photograph for printing and gives you the opportunity to study each adjustment layer as if you were looking over my shoulder while I work. These adjustment layers can be used on your own photographs, thereby providing a shortcut to success and saving you hours of trial and error. Master files are valued at $75 each. They are not sold individually.

The paper I selected for these prints is Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308 grams, my favorite paper at this time. The prints are done on my Epson 4880 running under ImagePrint using Epson inks. The print quality is stunning.

Master Prints are printed, curated, matted and packaged to museum standards, the same standards we follow for all my work.

By purchasing a Master Print set during this special offer you save a lot of money
compared to buying the Print + Book + Shipping at full price: see the table below to find out the exact amounts you save.

5 - Do you alread
y have one of these prints in your collection?

A few words about Success
In many ways this book is about being successful selling your photographs.  In fact, I devote an entire chapter, Chapter 22, about “The Personal Rules of Success.”  These are the things I do on a daily basis that have helped me become successful selling my work.

I wish such a book had been available when I started selling my work. Unfortunately no such book was available and I had to find the information I needed on my own.  This took many years and a lot of effort and money.  It also involved trial and error because a lot of time was spent looking for information that no one wanted to make available. 

I thought this situation was both ridiculous and unproductive. I therefore I wrote this book to remedy the situation.  I believe in sharing information, not in hoarding it.  Hoarding leads to more hoarding.  Sharing leads to more sharing.  In the end, the ones who really want to find this information will find it.  I did. It took me years, but I found it.  So why not make it available to all so that we all move forward faster.

I also decided to not let anything out because I would not want to read a book that left things out.  I want to have everything available to me.  This means that you will have the same marketing knowledge available to you that professionals who make a living selling their work have available to them. 

In fact, and in reality, you will have more marketing knowledge after reading this book than most professional photographers.  Why?  Simply because most professional photographers have not studied marketing!  As a result they make significant marketing mistakes regularly.  I study their marketing materials and I see them make a lot of major mistakes on a regular basis.  These mistakes cost them a lot of money in lost income.  This income could have been theirs if they knew how to do things correctly.  This is not an exaggeration.  I can tell you one thing: these professionals are waiting for this book too.  In fact, I expect the book to be purchased by professionals just as much as by amateur photographers. The pros will not tell you that, however they do want access to the information featured in this book!

I also want photographers to compete on the basis of their personal style and inspiration.  I do not want photographers to compete on the basis that one knows how to market his work and the other does not.  This is why I wrote this book. After reading, studying and applying the contents of the book you will have the information I use to market my work.  You will have the same knowledge that people who make a living selling their work successfully have.  In fact, as I pointed above, you will have more knowledge than most.  Making you successful is what this book is all about.  I am opening the gates of knowledge so that you can compete on a level playing field with people who have been doing this for years.  All you need to do is walk in by getting this book. There’s never been anything like this book before.
