  2. Unlimited duration for a bit over $$$..........really????????
  3. waterproof cameras

    Geoff, hubby has 2 GoPro's + lights and a backscatter macro diopter. Even from his newer GoPro5, the underwater images are very poor, and that is with help from the lights.
  4. waterproof cameras

    If you want a camera good enough to take underwater images for Alamy, you'll need to mortgage the house. A DSLR in a good quality underwater housing and bulkheads for 2 lights. Plus you'll need lenses and ports to suit. If you are not already an underwater photographer, you'll need to come to terms with changes to colour spectrum, backscatter, harsh shadows etc, just to name a few issues. and of course you need to be a very good and competent diver too, with perfect buoyancy control, because it's amazingly easy to kick up a nasty swirl of sand right into your photo. Or to concentrate on getting your photo and killing off the surrounding marine life. It's hard work! Because of the cost of the equipment, think very carefully before committing, and with care, you can get a long life from your camera system. I am still using my original Canon 5D, bought new in 2005, in a Subal Housing, with 580ex speedlite (also in a Subal housing) + an Inon 240z. I have 4 ports and numerous lenses and gears and also use a Subsee +5 for tiny stuff.

  6. So how was your May, eh?

    12 sales, but one refunded (the biggest $$$), so 11 sales but poor fees $372.39
  7. Photo on Alamy Facebook

    Ha, there's still so many undescribed, and of course, many are being re-classified right now. It's a real headache to keep up with. BTW, I have the great honour of having a nudi named for me (Chromodoris buchananae). http://slugsite.us/bow/nudwk246.htm

    Ed, you are 100% correct! Previously was Risbecia tryoni. My only excuse is total exhaustion after 2 very long dives! Thanks for correcting y stupid mistake.
  9. It's the same rules for us all. And most of us obey them and pass QC regularly. You could consider spending some time fixing your tags and captions on the few images you've already loaded. An old car with the caption "Fairyland at Dawn" is one example of poor captioning, the young women in shorts "Short shorts Stopping traffic" as a caption.....yet there is no traffic being stopped at all in the image.
  10. Photo on Alamy Facebook

    Saw this image on Alamy Facebook - and just amazed about the incorrect tagging and caption. I made appropriate comments.
  11. Slow/disappointing month

    A good month for me - sales wise. 11 sales, but 1 refund (sadly the biggest $$$), all other sales $$. CTR pretty poor though.
  12. been awhile

    Not bullying - but I can see some glaring omissions from your tags. The 2 deer for example. What kind of deer are they? What is their latin name? And they have antlers...that is also missing from your tags. Similar for the cow - what kind? Latin name?
  13. Decent $$$ fee for book - one of those discounted agreement ones, but an improvement on recent $$ fees.
  14. Calendar up to 10,000
  15. World, editorial magazine, print or web, low $$. It's a Peanut worm, a marine worm that hides under boulders or buried in the sand during the day because fish like to eat them. There's not much time after finding one to clean the sand off it, and get a shot or two, before it starts to bury or hide.
