I think the basic question you are asking is if you should build it out yourself at a high cost or if you should sell your idea.

One question I think you should ask yourself is how long you want to be married to your idea. If you don't think you want to have a long relationship with your idea then maybe now would be a better time to sell it.

With this thought in mind before you venture out and try this I would see if there is a market to buy the scenes you are taking pictures of.
