    Actually it sounds weird but my experience from the last two months is:
    The more you spam your fans, the better is the reach because its more likely that someone interacts with your content (like, share click etc)...
    Your fancount might drop but I guess those are not the ones you want as fans anyway...

    Find a photo printing company who offer a free canvas print for new signups.
    Write a status saying anyone who likes it by a certain date will be entered into a draw to win a free canvas of one of your photographs.
    Or if you photo people you could offer to do a free shoot.

    Take your best shots you do, and then post them say every 3 days (use something like LIKE this if you love the shot)

    Take quotes from people who are popular and post them on the page.

    Look at other pages scrape them and find out whats the most popular and then copy it and share it on your page, I let social media manager on other sites do the work and share the images and then use it on my own pages.

    Make your own images and share them, share any thing related and good.

    Hard work but I can get big interaction

    Theres a few ways to have your content seen by your fans, But the true count of your active fans are in your "talking" numbers. For example a fan page with 20k likes and 1k talking is far less valuable then one with 2k likes and 15k talking. The talking number is how many engaged active fans your page has. Ever since facebook made changes to their platform to increase monetizing efforts the news feed of your fans no longer shows your new postings unless they go out of their way to adjust a setting to see your new pics. The best ways to increase real fans organically is to create exciting oppurtunities for your fans. For Ex: free ebooks or programs you find etc... Make a package of some cool stuff. Give it a value of X$ and give it as a freebie for a contest. Tagging is the best thing you can get for someone, it instantly gets seen by more than 2 people, the tagger, the tagged and anyone else that sees it on the timeline or feed. Hope this helps. I know i went into a few different things but i view them as important things to understand.

    Very well said DMKing, I can vouch on what others here have said too. The consistent, quality content posted daily or every few days like clockwork. This shows you're active and makes people expect fresh photos from you.
    Those FB pages with quotes and such, the public thinks they're just random people sharing cool photos...those are actually IMers posting content and banking on them (through links to a website etc.)

    You can run a contest in fan page. Can give ad in FB. Use quality, unique contest in your FB. These things will help.

    You know what I've been engaging my fb fan page with content and that is good content that I can see other people. Content plays vital role in getting real users for your facebook page. Also Images that attract people and make them to get involve in your page. In my opinion you should keep posting good content, interesting stuffs and that is all frequently.
