    Now's the tough part.

    You have to approach galleries - restaurants - libraries - offices - cool bars and ask them if you can show your work.

    There's no trick - just hard work. The galleries will have guidelines so I suggestst you call them directly.

    I suggest SMALLER galleries to begin with because if you're a rookie big galleries probably won't look at you.

    Good luck

    Hi mattar,

    Couple years ago I have the same doubt about how to show my work to a gallery. By that time I get a couple of very useful collection of documents on how to become an artist: Artist forms, Exhibitions forms, Release forms, Sales forms and of course Gallery forms. So, if you are interested I can... ummm share you a backup copy of them just for your review .

    Please let me know.

    Default galleries_cost

    Be aware of the cost factors involved: printing, matting, framing, probably different sizes, perhaps publicizing the exhibition, and your time involved. The gallery will want either a percentage and_or a fee for the use of their space.

    When every aspect is considered, many photographers have lost or barely come out even from a gallery exhibition and that is of course assuming sales from the exhibition.
