Who do I sell to and where do I find these people? I want to know if I can make a good living out of this as well as fulfilling my passion.

"I sell photography to people who love minimalist images with a strong graphic impact."

Strengths:

1. I am a grown up. I work really hard, produce the work but also understand that I am very fortunate and that it is an extremely competitive industry. Nobody said this was supposed to be easy.

2. I am very tech savvy and do not need anyone to hold my hand in virtually all related tech skills.

3. I own all my own gear, ranging from multiple cameras, lighting, a studio, computers, large scale printers as well as a wood shop for framing etc. ie. I have no real restrictions... or excuses.

Weaknesses:

1. I am doing too many things. I do photography, sculpture and now starting with large scale paintings. I have 3 different websites. I live on a farm and am constantly building something or I am helping my wife with her fabulous new store.. but I am clearly too splintered and need to focus on actually selling the large bodies of work that I have created over the past 20 years.

2. I hate self promotion. I have always had an agent for my commercial work and I am simply not comfortable with how to not be the 2nd hand car dealer.

3. I am terrified. I want this more than anything. I just don't have the language or skill set.
