  2. I should think that no building owner who is aware of this case would give permission to any graffii artist to paint on their buildings now. How do they reach the value of over $6 million if the artwork could not even have been re-located or used elsewhere,, and would have eventually been weathered away, painted over, or peeled off? ?
  3. Thanks Allan I found it and sent some brass.
  4. Help Ed Rooney

    Sent a few bob over, I read the other thread first and was asking for your email addy. Hope you recover from the situation soon mate.
  5. What's your email addy for PayPal Edo?
  6. Institute of Photography offer

  7. Have you found any Alamy images Feb 2018

    Thanks for the spot Bryan
  8. Helloooo, anyone home?

    Same today with a lot of single image uploads from one event badly captioned and flooding the pages.
  9. What's the id? They may not be visible to anyone else.
  10. 2018 - is this what the future holds?

    I've been in discussion with a local paper regarding an infringement (we've settled) but the editor did say... "In the highly unusual event of us purchasing a general image for online use we would not pay more than £25+VAT". The price is the market price, but I found the fact that it would be an 'highly unusual event' for them to buy a general image that was most telling. The voraciously chase free general content, and get it from credit hungry toggers, even from professionals!
  11. This may alter what you photograph

    We do have DPA regs changes coming in on May 25th in the UK which will certainly have an effect on the things I do outside photography!
  12. Help upgrading camera

    Sony RX100m3 was bought as a convenient carry around instead of my canon 6d, which I changed to from a heavier 5d. It can't be compared to full frame, obviously, but a great little camera, and I really had stopped taking my camera (Canon DSLR) with me on short trips. There is also the worry of a bag full of gear on aircraft. Some parts of the menus (for me) are not the most intuitive, particularly the wifi section. I bought a stick on finger grip almost immediately after getting the slippery little critter, but someone here suggested sticking it on the leather carry case instead (it won't fit in the case when it's on the camera), so if I buy a case I may end up prying it off the camera and following that advice.
  13. DJI Phantom 4 vs Phantom 4 Pro

    Does that include pilots without a PfCO, who are flying illegally for commercial gain I wonder?
  14. DJI Phantom 4 vs Phantom 4 Pro

    There's also the point that you can't shoot images as a hobby drone user, gain the licence and then sell the images you had earlier taken as an unlicensed operator.
  15. DJI Phantom 4 vs Phantom 4 Pro

    We have seen drones being flown through a massive fireworks display over here in Spain at night, not everyone obeys the rules. When I'm in the UK I live close to many airfields and was checking NOTAMS on a daily basis. I could have flown legally, but, as I said, for me it's not the time. I collared someone flying over our private property last year and by the time I got to him he was looking straight up at his DJI as it went into the clouds! "It's OK mate, I'm a professional photographer," he said. "You'll know all about the rules and regs then, ie height limits." "Yes of course mate, I'm a pro". He gave me his business card and I looked at his website later He isn't licenced and was doing video shots over wedding crowds which were absolutely dire quality, never mind the safety and legality concerns. One of my other reasons for withdrawing from drone use was worries about the mavericks getting the industry shut down. BTW: I believe that the big G requires proof that you are licenced/insured if submitting aerial shots here don't they?
