How do you determine the best venue for showing your photographs? Lois Youmans and Sandra Carrion present several techniques for selecting and approaching galleries, such as:

  • Understanding the business of selling photography
  • Understanding galleries and how they work
  • Developing yourself
  • Your portfolio
  • How to determine if a gallery is right for you
  • Best practices for interacting with galleries

In addition, they discuss how to prepare a strong portfolio for gallery presentation as well as explaining what a gallery wants and expects to see, and how to present the final product to make it the best representation of you and your work.
