The Tour of Britain cycle race passes nearby to me this Saturday so I thought i'd go and capture some images. Then I thought that maybe the local press/publications may want to purchase some of my work. What's the best way to go about selling said shots (assuming they're any good)?

I've already e-mailed some publications asking them to reply if they think they may be interested but maybe the best way would just be to send them some images.

If I sent them via e-mail then how do I protect copyright - send low res or with a watermark maybe??

Don't expect much success but just want people's thoughts and advise really.

Thanks
Paul

Low res and a semi-transparent watermark accross the middle.
They can then contact you if they want to use anything.
You can better your chances of raising interest, by giving a more unique perspective - low and/or wide angle shots, but also capturing any sprints or breakaways that occur - something that really catches the action, plus of course, any pile-ups that may happen.

Thanks for the feedback Andrew.

I've since received a couple of e-mails showing some interest Smile Let's see what happens...
