  5. Edo in Sevilla . . .

    Today, February 17th is the first anniversary of the fire on Mulberry Street in NYC that made me homeless. I don't know if the building is open yet or if Angelo's has reopened. If any of you happen to walk by 146 Mulberry, please let me know. I would like to take a minute and again thank the forum and Alamy and Ian and the others who stepped up to help me in those scary first months. Thank you so much. For the moment I've landed on my feet, if on a rather slippery surface here in Seville. Poco a poco. Gracias, amigos Edo

    It will weaken Alamy's negotiating position. They won't even have to find the image elsewhere.

    They can do this just now, if they're very price conscious. Alamy has said they don't see it happening much. Anecdotal info from suppliers is 'mixed'. Although much is made here of low prices elsewhere, you need to make a commitment to buy a lot of images to get the low prices. At some of the 'other places', if you just want a single image it can cost more than on Alamy, in some cases.
  14. Exclusive and Ranking

    But this is a double-edged sword.. it means that a clever customer will realise that any image that they find in the 'normal' tab but not the 'exclusive' tab is likely to be available somewhere else so they might well go and look for it. This would result in Alamy (and contributors) losing money so I'm not sure I see it happening.

    It's called 'walking on very thin ice' IMO.

    It seems to me that our mindsets and business plans are being adjusted for us.
  17. Depressing story

    Well, it definitely won't make you rich. No print run numbers given, so on microstock you might have literally walked away with pennies if it had been a standard license. I get your point, though.
  18. Exclusive Images - Downward Spiral

    You are far from being the only one.
  19. Depressing story

    Just for clarity. Microstock is RF, but both Alamy RF and Alamy RM are not Microstock. Yet.
  20. Depressing story

    I would want to know the economic model under which the image was offered up on a microstock site. Did the talented photographer take the image on paid assignment? Is the talented photographer a paid leader of photo tours? Is the talented photographer a paid ambassador for a camera manufacture? Did the talented photographer, or their estate, sell the image copyright outright to the microstock site for an upfront payment from the microstock site? Did the talented photographer have a profitable picture book published on Maya culture. Is the talented photographer also a paid writer? Is the talented photographer a social media influencer? In other words, did the photographer make a large profit on the image before it started making an even larger profit from microstock sales? Not so depressing, if you are in both a position and a mindset to adjust your business plan. More of a pointer to the future of profitable stock photography, Microstock or not.
  21. Depressing story

    I think that means that it's a quarterly magazine. How can the placement be inside and inside or cover on the same licence I'm guessing that the licence allows the file to be used for either use. But actually, the placement is specified in this case as being inside (I didn't notice that at first).
  22. Depressing story

    Country: United Kingdom Usage: Editorial Media: Magazine - print, digital and electronic Print run: up to 500,000 Placement: Inside Image Size:1 page Start: 01 February 2018 End: 01 February 2023 Duration: 3 months. Any placement: Inside or cover. $12.57 Gross direct sale many of these in last 12 months but this licence(1 of 3 in april last year) is somewhat misleading. How can the placement be inside and inside or cover on the same licence. How can the duration be 3 months when the period is feb 18 to feb 23!

    Indeed. Exclusive on Alamy means the photographer is only selling this image on Alamy. There's no guarantee that another photographer isn't selling an almost identical image elsewhere. Mark

    And this is one of my Alamy sales in October: Country: Worldwide Usage: Magazine, editorial print and digital use, cover and/or inside, repeat use within a single issue Industry sector: Media, design & publishing Start: 25 September 2018 End: 25 September 2020 $ 52.41 (gross) ... I could go on. :-(
  25. Exclusive and Ranking

    However, offering images as exclusive is not without risk for Alamy -- e.g. customers' definitions of "exclusive" will no doubt vary .
  26. Depressing story

    Just checked, and extended licenses at this popular micro agency seem to run from approximately $68 to $100, better but still a bargain -- especially for a cover -- for the magazine and not much for the photographer. Hmmm... why am I not surprised that Time would have been caught cheating.
  27. Exclusive Images - Downward Spiral

    When I started with Alamy years ago contributors were receiving 60%, then 50%, now down to 40%. I think we all know where this will go eventually. I have moved more towards photojournalism from general stock and make my living I photography and have many images on the news wire so I can not make all images exclusive. I have been reasonably happy with my relationship with Alamy with weeks sales - some for decent money - but am now reconsidering. Now actively looking at alternatives
