  1. Prompted by this thread I've done a bit of work on my Facebook profile and have created a separate page for my Photography (see link in my signature). I was never really that keen on using my personal facebook profile for promoting my photography, but being able to split personal from business seems to provide a good solution. I now need to work out how best to use it effectively, which is probably a bigger challenge! One step at a time. Now what did I do with my Instagram and PInterest accounts....?
  2. Daily Telegraph, 12 January 2016 "Rail commuters suffer major delays as weather 'too sunny' for Southeastern train drivers" http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/road-and-rail-transport/12094681/Rail-commuters-suffer-major-delays-as-weather-too-sunny-for-Southeastern-train-drivers.html Image ID: BJW0E3 Copyright: © Rebecca Erol / Alamy Stock Photo
  3. My first sale of 2016 for $14 appeared on Saturday. I've tracked down that image use to a specific web article, but I've also found that another UK organisation has reproduced it, along with my image and 4 others from Alamy. I've submitted an unauthorised use form to Alamy so hopefully my returns might double!
  4. Daily Telegraph, 6 Jan 2016 "Giant Arctic air mass to bring snow and ice to Britain next week" - [More UK Weather photo opportunities then!!] http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/weather/12086136/UK-weather-Arctic-air-mass-to-bring-snow-and-ice-to-Britain.html Image ID: F111EW Copyright: © Terry Mathews / Alamy Stock Photo
  5. 2014: 25 sales 2015: 52 sales, up 108% 2014 to 2015: Gross revenue up 13% Revenue per image down 45%, but I think a big contribution to that was some higher value news sales in 2014 which have skewed the figures.
  6. Three images in the BBC Article - "Why 'self-sabotage' could be ruining your career" http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20151208-actually-youre-the-problem E45RE9, Nature Picture Library EHMAN5, Blend Images B9E75N, Andrea Liverani Keith
  7. Sheffield, England deleted for now until I can fix the size!
  8. 8 sales for $174 gross, including 3 separate sales for my image that appeared in The Times. Still got that Newspaper sale to look forward to!
  9. If there is a credit line then readers know where to go to obtain the image if they wish to buy a licence themselves. I had a photo printed in The Times on the 13th November, and I've made two further sales of the image in the last week.
  10. I've just passed my revenue total for 2014. After a good start to 2015 I had hoped to achieve that milestone sooner, but things slowed down a bit in the second half of the year.
  11. Thanks Rob. That works if you can get your hands on the original small thumbnail without text - e.g. from a search for the Alamy code, but not in Live News. It is possible to select the image size by editing the url. Just change /comp/ to /thumbs/ or /zooms/ Hope this helps I think it looks better at the larger size Thanks for the tip, that's very useful to know. Keith
  12. Thanks for that Brian. I wouldn't have known otherwise,although it would have been a nice surprise in a few months time! Keith
  13. A head start on the peloton. (Tour de France, Grinton Moor, North Yorkshire, July 2014). A University Don in gown and mortar board mixes with runners in the centre of Cambridge: Reading by the River Seine in Paris
  14. Thanks for that spot AlbertSnapper. I did see my image on the page on Monday morning, but The Guardian replaced it with another image in the online version later that day. I will be watching my sales record closely to make sure that my image gets the recognition it deserves!! Did anybody see if the image made the print version of the Observer on Sunday? The article is titled "Sheffield’s real steal: a cutting edge city break". Keith
  15. I uploaded some images on Thursday evening about 9pm UK time, but they didn't appear in "Track Submissions". Looked again this morning and they are now there, awaiting QC.
  16. The case of the monkey seems a nonsense to me, but what caught my attention was the link to the 'Red Bus' case. http://www.taylors.co.uk/news/newsitem119.htm Although in this particular case the copyright infringement was pretty deliberate, it would not be too difficult to fall into the same trap accidentally. I'm thinking of one of my photos of some red telephone boxes in Cambridge that I did consider a candidate for selective colour treatment!
  17. A small group of us meet up in the Cambridge (UK) area about once every three months. We meet for lunch and a chat about Alamy, sales, QC fails, the future of Stock and all the usual topics that you see on these forums! Our next meeting is scheduled for lunchtime on Wednesday 21st October. Any other Alamy contributors are more than welcome to join us. Send me a message if you are interested and I will provide you with further details. Keith
  18. I agree with Richard on this. It's difficult to see who has been harmed financially, has a case to bring, and is willing to pursue it. As far as I can see that's not the original poster. Or am I missing something?
