How to become a landscape photographer

This article is just a short overview on how to become a landscape photographer.

Landscape photography can be very lucrative with the right approach. Some of the best business models in the industry are landscapes. Unfortunatley there are to many photogrpahers already attempting to do it, so landscape photography as a full time profession is not for everyone.

It is very easy to get yor camera and start photographing the sunset but that does not have any comercial value.I am of the personal believe that people do not buy landscapes on the street but only occasional.

You can become a great landscape photographer by finding a special niche and producing oustanding results. Just as an example i have seen photographers specialised in beach photography and water with very interesting a lucrative business models. Other examples are – long exposure night photography, time lapse photography, macro photography.
