Most of the stuff you have done is "static." In other words, like Yellow Pages, once the advert is in, you do nothing but wait.  I've known a few to get into good paying pro photo jobs by starting out volunteering.  One friend started volunteering in the mountain bike community, from there his work just grew and now he is making good bucks selling what he originally did for free.

If you aren't actively shooting (being seen working) and demo'ing your work, you really aren't "getting out there" despite all the wonderful "static" stuff you are doing.

What is in your area that you can just beginning volunteering, pro horse shoes, dirt bike races, horse shows, dog shows, baby work?  What ever.
