On the other hand look on it as a learning experience and maybe some good contacts made should they ever need a series of pics etc. I must admit I'm pretty crap at marketing/networking which is one of the reasons stock suits me ;-)

Good points though I'm probably not the best person at marketing! However, there was another professor from another university who liked my image and said he didn't have any immediate use for the photo but would contact me in the future if he does. So yea it was worth getting it out there.

I think you've invested a lot more time in this for any returns you might make over and above what you'd get selling it as stock.

I admit I'm getting tired of contacting publishers / university departments etc. Putting the photo up on a stock site's going to be so much easier.

Err. I think a few of us suggested that earlier. A lot earlier.  :-\

Nothing wrong with sticking to the plan!

A lot of us thought your plan wouldn't work. It hasn't.

At this stage, it's likely that my photograph will be published in a book. Therefore, the plan has worked.

My apologies.

Do we know the title of the book yet? I'd love to see this picture.

Also, have you totalled up the hours you spent on this project? What is the revenue/day for it?

Getting it published is great, but are you getting any money for it?  If so, when you divide up the hours spent versus how much you could have got for the same image by submitting to an agency - maybe nothing or possibly a lot - then it might not be worth the effort economically.  If your main goal was just getting it published then it seems you were successful - congratulations! - but if it was to get the best price then maybe not.  At least you got a lot of interesting experience either way.

So far, all I know is that it's going to be a book on the physics of water.

Considering that it's going to be a professor from a university department who'll be writing the book, I'll accept anything that comes my way.

So the book hasn't been written yet?

It's being written at the moment. Professor said he'll contact me again in a month's time.

Thanks! It will be good seeing the photo being used in an educational context. And that's the sort of thing I had in mind after I first took it.
