How Do I Get People To Notice My Work?

My goal with my photography have always been to spread beauty and joy. Especially sharing those moments, and views, that are rare and not available to everyone. The moments that gets me high on life. You know exactly what I’m talking about, don’t you?

For that to happen, for people to actually see my photos, there’s actually a whole process. Who knew, right? Maybe that is something you have been thinking about. You’re good at taking your camera with you, and you actually take a lot of photos. You want people to see them, but how does that happen? How Do I Get People To Notice My Work?

I use Fine Art America to display my photos, there’s many other options out there as well, but for any of them to work well, the photographer/artist has to put effort into attaching keywords to each photo, and describe them, in order for people to find them.

I never upload all the photos I share here on my blog, or other social media, I use a very selective process to decide what photos I want to put the extra effort into uploading to my gallery. That’s pretty much it, keywords, is the key. Of course it helps a ton if you network, and share your work on social media etc. Since I just finished catching up sharing my favorite photos on my gallery, writing about this important aspect popped up in my mind. Hopefully it helps someone. I wished I would of known the importance of keywords a long time ago.

The photos in this post is some of my recent favorites (from the past two months.) If you click on one of them you’ll see what they look like in my gallery, and what keywords I used.

  1. I had a look at your gallery and it’s beautiful. The one that jumped out for me is extraordinary composition of “Shasta Dam”. How cool would it be to have it anywhere, on a bag or a pillow! Great work and thank you for telling us about the keywords. I don’t sell my work but maybe one day I will. Beautiful animal photos too. ❤

  2. Maria, your photos are stunning and these are just a small fraction of the beautiful images you have shared! Like many I use Instagram for my better work, which shares to Facebook. Of course I post images on my blog, from where it all started. Many people ask me if I would publish a calendar, etc,. which is so flattering, but I’m not out to make $$ at this time. It’s too much work. However, I decided to stop buying other people’s artwork for lots of $$ and have found an inexpensive way through Canvas Discounts (online) to print my faves to canvas. Now I can enjoy my own art in my home (all sizes) and have had some printed for family and friends as gifts. Thank you for YOUR gift of sharing your beautiful, inspiring photos!

    1. Thank you Terri! I would love to see a blog post with some of the photos that you have printed, from around your house! A couple years ago I got a message via Facebook from a lady that I do not know, that had collected my horse photography for a while, without me knowing it. She sent me photos of my photos hanging on her walls. It made me so happy! She had a beautiful house. Thank you for your kind comment. I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend.

  3. Your photos are wonderful. I think the mustang in the snow particularly is a fabulous shot. I’ve often wondered if I should have an online gallery, but wondered if it would be worth the effort. Does it generate good income and how long does it take to see results?

    1. Thank you Eliza! It’s relatively easy to set up a gallery. I currently don’t have a Facebook page where I share my photography, because that took longer time to maintain, (but it also generated more money. When it was connected to my gallery.) The more time and effort you put in to your gallery, the more profitable it is. When you uploaded a photo to your gallery once, and set your prices, the photo will keep making you money. I like that, you don’t have to interact in any way, unless you want to. I choose Fine Art America partly because of that. They do the packing, and shipping, you just notice a deposit in your bank account from them. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any help, or have more questions.
