The Guilfoyle Report has available a thorough and very useful report on the Textbook Market which

sells for $30.

This 16 page report was prepared for Guilfoyle by Fred Bodin, Townsend Dickinson and Linda Moore.

The report says educational publishing netted $4.5 billion dollars in 1996. We estimate that 3% to

3.5% of that is paid

to photographers and stock agencies for content. The report explains the kind of images that are

needed by the textbook

market and explains what to shoot. It lists specific subjects in demand. It also includes

information about 44 major

publishers and 28 Picture Research organizations and gives general information about the kind of

material each


The report includes "Advice from a Stock Agent," information about locating picture researchers,

and pricing information.

If you want to participate in this $150 million a year market you need to read this report.
