  1. Bittersweet, in the context of recent Alamy news. But the sun is shining today and I'll take all of the positive I can get right now. Hope you're having a good day, wherever you are. Felix
  2. Like so many others, I'm terribly disappointed by the proposed contract changes. Although I'm not sure if I really have much in the way of new insights to offer, I thought I would share my two cents anyway because I suspect there are many Alamy photographers in the same situation as I am, and I figure the more who speak out, the better. I started out with Alamy in 2007, when I believe the revenue split was 60-40 (or was it 70-30?) in favour of the photographer. Except for a very short stint with Corbis SnapVillage, I've always been exclusive with Alamy because I liked the feelin
  3. Congratulations! First of many more, I hope. No book covers for me but I continue to work hard, so someday, who knows? All the best, Felix
  4. There are some terrific photos in this thread, I've enjoyed going through them all. Here are a few I've taken and uploaded this month that I kind of like. Thank you for looking. 1. Cute baby Least Chipmunk (Tamias minimus). 2. Male Mountain Bluebird (Sialia currucoides). Kind of a rare bird in these parts and the first I've seen with my own eyes - finally! Considered by some to be the most beautiful songbird in Western Canada. 3. Just a daisy. A search for "daisy" here on Alamy reveals over 66,000(!) results, so this one will never sell. But I like it anyway.
  5. Uploads from July 12, 13, 16 and 17 all cleared earlier today. Phew!
  6. Just curious if anybody out there is still waiting on QC to review photos uploaded on July 12?
  7. Spoke a day too soon. Batches from the 18th just cleared!
  8. And just a general thanks to all of those who contribute regularly to the monthly "have you found any Alamy images" threads. I'm sure I'm not only speaking for myself when I say your time and efforts are much appreciated.
  9. You're amazing Jill, thanks so much for copying all of the names for the board! That deserves a green arrow. Felix Thanks for pointing this out Felix. I see many blurry Alamy Images listed in the credits. I can only make out that the back cover is Alamy Images: Blaine Harrington lll. Here is the list from the book. They are all alphabetical, so happy hunting: Alamy Images: AEP 110cr; Arco Images GmbH/B. Boensch 143br; Arco Images GmbH/R.Kiedrowski 60bl; ArkReligion.com 119bc; Peter Barritt 300bl; Mark Bassett 277br; Bildarchiv Monheim GmbH/Achim Bednor
  10. Trying my best, Phil. Another shot at it: http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=RaR0yPKGAp4C&printsec=frontcover&dq=Off+the+tourist+trail&hl=en&output=html_text&sa=X&ei=1RZYU9fNAuKYyAHNsYDgCw&ved=0CD8QuwUwAg Try pasting link into browser perhaps? Page 336 for a long list of Alamy photographers. That works, but even zooming the page it is unreadable, shame
  11. One final attempt for Off the Tourist Trail: 1,000 Unexpected Travel Alternatives. Link at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Off-Tourist-Trail-Unexpected-Alternatives/dp/B0096DDWTI Try clicking on the "Look inside" button. Font is small and preview quality seems poor, sorry about that. Also sorry in advance if the link doesn't work.
  12. Does this link work? http://books.google.ca/books?id=RaR0yPKGAp4C&pg=PT68&lpg=PT68&dq=off+the+tourist+trail+1000+unexpected+travel+alternatives+alamy+images&source=bl&ots=3wVH22CpVR&sig=FAx_YQQsQPpntj-ID9cSB4RVMUg&hl=en&sa=X&ei=2w5YU_DdHIqiyATjzoLICA&ved=0CCgQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=off%20the%20tourist%20trail%201000%20unexpected%20travel%20alternatives%20alamy%20images&f=false Hopefully it does and I didn't waste people's time ...
