With so much overlap between photographic genres – from wedding photographers shooting in a documentary style to photojournalism destined for a gallery space – what defines fine art photography today?
"It's an artist's vision translated into images; there's an idea behind it," says Egyptian fine art photographer and Canon Ambassador Menna Hossam.
"A project or a concept-based process where the end result has some kind of artistic meaning rather than someone documenting the world as a record," agrees London gallerist Giles Huxley-Parlour, who represents Alec Soth, Joel Sternfeld and Martin Parr, among others.
Whether you're starting out as a photographic artist or a professional photographer in another genre keen to cross over into the art world, there are a few things you need to know. Here, Menna and Giles share their advice for building a reputation and a career as a fine art photographer.
