Hello, new guy here. Love this site. Anyways, I'm looking for some advice in regards to setting up a solo show this summer. I understand there are a number of challenges involved in this, so anyone who can share some experience with this would be greatly appreciated. I've worked very hard on putting together a portfolio of images over the last year and half. It mostly consists of landscapes and nature photography in the area. I think this might work in my favor because I live in Northern Michigan in an area where theres is a lot of art exposure and galleries. Being that I grew up in there area, I would like to generate some exposure to get my name out there. I want to establish a reputation as an artist in the area because I know there are some great resources. I'm pretty young, I graduated high school two years ago, so I understand I'm not approaching anyone with a mature artist's portfolio. However, I don't think this should stop me from gaining some recognition for my work. I work very hard and I'm serious about pursuing photography as a career. As far as gallery space, I thought it would be a good option to try contacting the public library and probably some of the local art galleries. I'm a little lost at how I should approach them though. Should I send them a letter? Or try to set up an appointment? Feel free to take a look at my work and let me know if you think its ready. Thanks so much!
