The book has many fine art photographs predominantly by Briot, and is divided into Getting Started, and three parts: 1: How fine art photographs are sold and what happens in the process (15 stories); 2: Eight Artists: In their own words (8 stories); 3: What artists do and don’t do: problems and solutions (14 stories); and End Notes.

In How Photographs Are Sold, author and fine art photographer Alain Briot has compiled stories and examples of how several successful photographers market and sell their work. The book features information from photographers who earn a living from their artwork, as well as from others who sell their artwork to further their passion rather than as their main source of income. It also includes examples from Alain's personal experience selling his fine art photographs.
The featured photographers come from a variety of backgrounds and use a broad range of techniques for selling their artwork. They share information about their personal styles, what has worked for them and what hasn't, where they have sold their work, and more. Also included are images of each photographer's selling environment and examples of the marketing materials they use.
