[font color=\'#000000\']Marketing and selling your own work takes as much skill and time as taking good pictures. First thing, identify what kind of pictures you like to take. Then identify the markets. You'll find that whatever you do, it will be competitive, so work with only your best work. If you like to write and can put together a magazine article, so much the better. It give the editor the whole package. If you want to sell prints to the general public, you are going to have to go to them. One of the best ways is to sell your work at art shows. There's plenty of shows all across the country. Just find the ones that fit your style. If you want to work with a stock agency, then you really need to produce the wares. They want continual flow of new pictures. Something that not all of us can produce. You might develop a web site. although everyone seems to have one, and they all have pictures available for sale, I find that web sites are more useful as a portfolio of your work. Print out busniess cards, show your pictures in art walks, contact art shops and ask if they will display your work. The possibilities are unlimited, but one thing is for sure, marketing and selling takes a lot of work, and many of the aspects I can't rate very high on the funometer.
However, selling pictures is gratifying, knowing that someone likes one of your pictures enough to bring it home and hang on the wall.
There are all kinds of books on the subject as well as websites, including this one, that have tons of information. Good luck. [/font]
