    Hello, I am a learning amateur in photography. I have a fair number of photos that I think would be able to sell but I'm not sure where I could sell them. I generally do landscapes but they aren't the type that are so generically perfect that they could sell as stock photos...

    any suggestions?

    Online fine art really doesn't work well. You need to actively sell or have someone actively selling for you. Swap meets/farmer's markets, galleries, gift shops, things like that.

    And the things that sell well in craft shows and gift shows are subjects people easily recognize, can relate to, and connects to something positive in the lives.

    Alternatively it just matches the wallpaper, paint, draperies, or new chairs. ;)

    sell fine art shots via galleries.


    In the meantime, join local photo clubs, enter their exhibits/competitions. Build up a reputation. Get to know the local competition. Pick the brains of locals who have been there, done that, and have the sales to show for it.
