I'm a gallery represented photographer and I can tell you what I know. I can see two paths into a gallery, the first is when the gallery owner is already familiar with you work, the second is when they are not. You are lucky if you fit into the first camp, I did. But it isn't all luck. I worked hard to get noticed, I was just lucky in that I got noticed ...

Contact curators or get a professional manager. Make a sample cd or dvd of your works and send it to the galleries. I'm working with a professional manager which makes those stuff for me :D

This really depends on your sizes and how you want to display your pieces. If framing isn't an option, 3M spray adhesive and foam core is often a cheaper option, but it still isn't particularly cheap, particularly after mounting hooks and such are added in there. You can use an oversized foamcore board to also have it act as the photo matte as well. If ...

I am a member of a small co-op gallery and we regularly do shows of individual artists' work in exchange for commission on the sales. Other galleries may provide a similar opportunity, but you may need to start at lesser-known galleries and work up. In our situation, we provide space only and require the artist to do all the publicity. Alternatively, you can ...

Contests are usually a huge waste especially if they aren't doing any legwork to sell your stuff. Most I've found are self interest to exploit artists to "show" work. Anyone can show work anywhere.

Eventually larger contests will open up to you and you can find the pro community that way. The second ...

The book measures 11x11 inches and is not that expensive. http://www.rakuten.com/prod/ancient-trees/261929890.html?listingId=-1&sclid=pla_google_rakuten.com&adid=29963&gclid=Cj0KEQjwyoCrBRCl-aa97pKX_t8BEiQAbrs_9LTHG12UhuDH6PIOaO94KnBMgeBzJPLRcT_gIlivKFcaAtuS8P8HAQ I don't see any posters available. I searched framedart dotcom, allposters dotcom, ...

At that price range, and without any other specific instructions, it is almost certain that the students will be expected to have the kit lens (18-55mm or 18-[something slightly longer]) that often comes with a new crop-sensor (APS-C or DX) camera. Apart from the slightly inconvenient fact that Nikon users will have a slight advantage over Canon users in the ...

In your case I would buy an entry-level DSLR body like a Nikon D3300 and a 50mm f1.8 prime lens. This lens is made for such scenarios and you can achieve very sharp and high quality images and you have enough money left to care about studio lightning :)
