On our last day in Venice, Rich recapped what we’d learned so far about taking great pictures and selling them to magazines, newspapers, stock agencies, and as fine art. For fine art, he said, anything goes.  If you like the photo, hopefully someone else will, too. The definition of fine art photography is really any kind of photograph someone will hang on a wall.  And the best way to sell these kinds of photos, he said, is to start locally.  Venice pictures might sell well in an Italian restaurant and/or coffee shop (he taught us how to get into that and print and price our work).  But local photos, within 30 miles of where you live, will likely sell a little better. For magazines, Rich said, the key is telling a story.  If you’re submitting only one photo, it should either illustrate a specific travel article idea you have (a photo of a restaurant you’ve written about, a gondola ride you took, a mask-maker you’re featuring, etc) or it should be quintessential Venice (a photo of Venice’s many bridges, waterways, gondoliers, sunsets, etc). For stock, it’s about advertising something.  You have to think about why someone might buy that photo and what they might use it for.  It can’t have any identifiable people in it without a model release. And, in most cases, it should include copy space so a buyer can turn it into a banner on his website or a brochure for his Venetian masks. I’m home in Virginia now and I can’t stop looking at my photos from this trip. I sent you a few of my favorites along with some pictures attendees took.  But take a look at these shots of attendees out enjoying themselves, photographing the streets of Venice with a professional photographer by their side to help them get the best pictures…   This Thailand expedition includes not one but two cities – Bangkok and Chaing Mai — and it was one of our attendee favorites from last year. Your tour includes an elephant ride, temple tours, and a local Thai cooking class – yum! December is a great month to visit Thailand.  Not only is the weather nice, the shopping is outstanding and you can stock up on gifts before the holiday that will save you a bundle. I hope you’ll join us on a trip soon.
