To date I’ve sold 500 of the 4,500+ images in my portfolio. Some have sold numerous times so the actual total number of sales is over 800. I keep track of the images that have sold in this gallery – http://edward-fielding.pixels.com/collections/recently+sold+on+faa+pixels
Now are these my best work? I don’t know, I have my own favorites but these are the photographs and art images that my collectors have chosen to purchase as prints, framed art, phone cases, tote bags, throw pillows, metal prints, greeting cards etc.
I might pick different images to show at a gallery or put in a book….

…but as far as selling via my online gallery with Fine Art America and Pixels, these are the images the buyers have liked enough to spend money on.
Some of the images in my recently sold gallery have only sold once so far, other sell over and over. Some of my top sellers include the following images:
Now I’ll be the first one to tell you that selling artwork in a crowded marketplace is not easy. Sellers out number buyers by thousands to one. The odds are against you that you will be able to break through the pack, get noticed and find buyers for your work.
It took me about three years of uploading quality, intriguing, unique, niche focused artwork and marketing it on a consistent basis before I started to see steady sales. A few more years of building up my portfolio and brand to the point that I could say I make a living off of my photography and art.
Most people give up before they see any benefits. They end up blaming the system for their lack of success. But the true is that they didn’t put in the time and effort required to succeed in a market with more suppliers than buyers. You have to create stunning work and get people to see it among the millions of other people who are trying to do the same. Dreams are nice but actually hard work is what is required to make dreams come true.
