Larry -

The problem with that is that if you want to sell it, you have to 
post it!  99.9% of all photos sold today are searched, found, and 
sold through the internet.  I can't remember the last time I sold a 
photo that had not been posted on the web.  All of my stock 
photographs are posted by several different agencies.  All photo 
researchers today start out with a search - on Google or Alamy or 
Getty or Corbis or Photo Researchers or PDI or any of thousands of 
different sites, depending on what kind of photo they need.  That's 
just the way the business works these days.  If your photo is not 
posted somewhere, it will not be found or sold.  There is no choice.
