Re: Submitting photos for sale to Newspapers

I have no first hand experience with selling photographs to newspapers but did attend a lecture from someone who did break into this. I would think that you need to specialise in something so that you can readily offer a particular type of picture. The guy who lectured went to a local sports club and spoke to the manager of a up and coming athlete and eventually secured exclusive rights to photograph him in training. As the athlete later won an Olympic Gold medal, his images were in great demand and a Newspaper evenentialy gave him regular work in sports photography and bought him a new camera. I think it took him several years to become established. best of Luck!
