Ever Tried To Market A Photo?

Just curious has anyone actually tried to market one of their images to companies/airlines/books rather than they come to you ?

Long live the shamrock !!!

Only once, and only to magazines. The pictures involved were the first of the BMI A330 taken in the UK. Basically, I scanned the images and e-mailed small versions of them to a number of magazines, and put a link in the e-mail to larger versions that I had uploaded to my own webspace (they weren't on airliners at the time). The pics were available for the mags to preview within 24 hours of them being taken. Included was:
