  3. We may even need to ship a few back here to their native land, to replenish the populations devastated by forest fires (stranger things have happened: feral camels from Central Australia have been exported back to Saudi Arabia). In the meantime, cutesy pics of Koalas and other marsupials, in the context of the bushfire emergency across much of Australia, definitely have news value.
  4. A strange situatiom popped up yesterday... I received a direct message from a would-be image buyer in S.E. Asia. He had searched online to find a point of contact for me, as he wanted to negotiate an indefinite term of use for a rights-managed image, rather than Alamy's max. 5 year term. The image in question is a portrait of a high-ranking Tibetan Buddhist lama (yes, really) taken in India 3 years ago. Apparently this lama has a following in neighbouring countries and his followers hoped to print and display the image in perpetuity at their temple or meeting place. On the spur of the moment I suggested he go ahead with the 5-year license and I would undertake that they could retain right of usage indefinitely. Now I see that they have only taken out 'noncommercial, personal use' which seems rather poor compensation... what would others do?
  5. Thanks Harry, I needed to explore the Filter options in A.I.M. I can see now that the 'headline' number refers to every single image of mine which has ever entered the Alamy system. Deducting Failed images, Deleted images and Images Awaiting Deletion brings me much close to the 9024 currently on display to a curious world.
  6. I have a related question: Alamy Image Manager records my total images as numbering 11,244 but my Alamy Portfolio only displays 9,024. Can anyone account for such a substantial disparity? I doubt very much that failed submissions account for more than a couple of hundred images.

Credit: Alamy - Appears to be the same location as this image... but damned if I can spot it anywhere within the 160+ search results.

  11. Thanks Callie. Your comments are very helpful (and I also found the 2013 discussion focussed on Cologne cathedral).
  12. I am in the same position, and so must be (almost all of) the Alamy photographers who have uploaded 3,000+ other images taken on this property. Is Alamy seriously going to wade through all of these images? Has any Alamy contributor attempted to negotiate a release from SPSG, the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg? So many questions arise... why would any property manager, whose continuing success depends on tourism, take such a hostile and negative attitude to free publicity? (my experience late last year was that SPSG seems not to give a damn about visitor amenities or satisfaction). Should photographers expect the same rigid mindset to prevail throughout Germany? Does German law really support such an all-encompassing definition of property rights? I hope we can generate some input from people more knowledgeable about the German situation.
  13. Thanks for the tip, Genevieve ...and I was very interested to discover your range of high-quality Blurb books, since I have been labouring away at producing an illustrated personal memoir on Blurb.

  15. One of my images has just appeared on a Finnish-language website, attributed to [My Name]/MVPHOTOS. MVPHOTOS appears to be the Finnish arm of a Czech-based photo library called Profimedia. Has anyone else Does anyone know if these companies are legitimate associates of Alamy? Thanks.
  16. Thanks for that, AlbertSnapper - as far as I could tell, that info. was no longer being collected!
  17. My March 2015 totalled about $165 for a total of 5000+ images - only fair. Some people here are mentioning their zoom count for the month. Since the revamp of the My Alamy start page, that data no longer appears in Sales History - where else could it be found?

  19. If we want our images to sell, our keywording must anticipate misapprehensions and mis-spellings on the part of our customers. Most of us here on the far side of the Pacific must be utterly ignorant of the wigwams/teepees distinction. By all means, set people right with a note in the Description field. Informal or colloquial geographic names - like those of the NYC neighbourhoods/neighborhoods (!) - are a particular problem with certain other very large stock libraries which allow the photographer very little input in keywording. 'Lower East Side' or 'Central Australia' don't appear on too many maps, but it is unhelpful to stick rigidly to official nomenclature.
