    Alright. So. I'm looking to start making this hobby pay for itself.

    I've got a website with some basic ecommerce: www.galephotographic.com

    I don't want to do portrait or wedding. As you can see, most of my work is landscape anyway.

    How should I get people to my website? What advice do you have for me to start selling prints? Anything and everything is appreciated. :thumbup:

    ...somebody needs to answer midget's question so I don't have to ask it later! This is my exact plan/goal for within the year once I learn more... so I'm looking forward to advice just as much as midget.

    Just start doing as much research as possible on web site marketing. Here's a starting point: http://www.wilsonweb.com/articles/checklist.htm

    There is so much information out there about web marketing you could drown in it. Fire up Google, type "Web Site Marketing" and simply start reading.
