To buy or not to buy

December 18, 2014  •  4 Comments

I think it's great that people like my pictures. I think it's even greater that people buy my pictures. However, I often wonder at the ones selling. It happens a lot with readily recognisable view points, such as Storr, Fairy Pools, Sligachan, Quiraing. Which is understandable, when you think of Skye, certain scenes spring to mind. What puzzles me are the kind of pictures selling. Some of my personal favourites are very low in sales, completely trounced by a bog standard view of Quiraing, taken on a clear midday (see example). For me, there is no distinguishing feature, it's completely vanilla. But it is clearly what people want, so it is sometimes tempting just to take "boring" pictures, because it's an easy turnover. However, the risk is then that you compete with not just hundreds of other photographers, but also with anybody who has a smartphone and has driven past this location. That's why I will continue to take pictures I find challenging and interesting, if maybe not so mass market. But then, maybe I'm just a snob?
