Or think about what kind of images you would love to shoot and then start from there.DocFrankenstein said:Think about what kind of images people usually want to buy and work from there.
Good question.DocFrankenstein said:How is that going to help him sell?
"Never choose to be a photographer for the money or for the glamour or for the romance of it all. I think it may have all of those things but that is not the reason why you choose to be a photographer. You choose to be a photographer because there is something about this translation of feeling onto film that drives you to really want to do this, and it's a really wonderful gift for you to do that. All the other stuff is sort of peripheral to it and if you seek that out, you're going to lose it. If you seek out just to do really good work, to be the best you possibly can, maybe that will come to you."
I know; I was responding to you.DocFrankenstein said:I agree with Rodney Smith, but it doesn't really answer the OP's question.
I can't help you there, but the top notch photographers that we see around weren't born with all the skills, marketing etc.DocFrankenstein said:I like shooting landscapes and naked girls. I don't beleive I'll be able to sell many of those.

As for the original question, it depends on the type of images that you are planning to sell.
If you are looking to sell your images to the editorial market these two books may help you:
2006 Photographer's Market
Writers' and Artists' Yearbook 2006
If you are interested in selling stock images, there are some leads in the 2006 Photographers Book mentioned above. Apart from the ones listed in the book, you can submit your work to Corbis, GettyImages, Comstock, IPNStock.com, IstockPro.com etc.
Then there are places like istockphoto.com where you will be able to sell your images for dirt low prices.
