The first thing you do is to join your local photographic society, if you don't have one why don't you consider being a member of the Royal Photographic Society (www.rps.org). As a member you will have opportunities in sending your images for International Exhibition and end up showing your photos in different galleries.
Talk to your local gallery owner and show him/her your portfolio for exhibiting locally, the opportunities are endless.

I started out entering local photography competitions. When I started winning and got my name out, they approached me. They are always looking for new stuff to hang and it helps that they take a chunk out of the sales for their commisions. I agree with Jafffer about joining your local photography clubs. They are a great networking tool and a great way to learn.

Select a few local galleries and just go in and talk to someone. I find this is the easiest and most direct way. I actually got my work into a small local gallery like this. I just walked in, spoke to someone and they said they had space available. I went back the next day with some of my work and I am now in the gallery. Sometimes the direct approach works best. Galleries are always looking for new and unique work. Some have more stringent guidelines but it can't hurt to ask! Take along a portfolio to show. Good luck!

Totally agree with Regenia about entering local photography competitions. I do that (and win!). I also donate to silent auctions for American Association of the Blind, University auctions, etc. Also, get to know a local store owner (coffee shops are good for this) and see if you can install photos for periods of time. Definitely join your local art leagues. You can hang in their galleries as a member and many of them have yearly functions you can sell your images through.

most colleges have art departments that are looking for folks no matter what your medium is...it also makes their job easier if someone approachs them as compared to going out and finding artist
