Welcome to Episode 079 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Jason Matias!
Jason Matias is a fine art photographer based in Bellvue, Washington. Jason has been working hard behind the scenes to help other photographers sell their photography through his online masterclass "the art of selling art." Jason is a veteran and has a master's degree in organizational leadership - both experiences he has leveraged to develop his marketing and selling acumen. Jason defines his photography into two different concepts - comfortable isolation, and personification in nature. He leverages those concepts to market his work to potential buyers - something we discussed in great length on the podcast episode.
We covered some great topics this week, including:
1. The article about Jason in F-Stoppers.
2. Jason's "Art of Selling Art" service.
3. Email marketing.
4. The importance of persistence - "go for no."
5. Mediums for print and display for wealthy buyers.
6. Using and locating a gallery to display your work.
7. Creating work with a message that makes it more marketable to your target audience.

Over on Patreon this week, Jason and I discuss his really awesome process for how to find your voice as an artist - which I think is a totally unique and worthwhile process for landscape photographers to embark upon.
