  1. Yes - I now hope to be there as have cancelled a trip to Japan. Saturday 11.00 at the Alamy stand may be doable, though 12.00 would be easier for me to get there in time?! Kumar
  2. But I guess it might depend on when they do the conversion which may be several days before payment made so may give Alamy the benefit of the doubt.
  3. Thanks Cassius! Ironic given that my wife is presently out skiing in northern Italy! 😑(Went with Easyjet) Cheers Kumar
  4. Currency converter tells me I could get paid £466 this month - I reckon I will actually get £450... we will see
  5. 68 for $1380 gross - poor sale amounts and for possibly the first time, no $$$ sales. 😒 Zooms good at 275, and CTR for the month I think the highest ever at 0.86 Compares unfavourably with Feb 2019 ( 75 sales for $2023 gross) Sign of the times I guess Kumar
  6. Frankly I always work out what I should get from the exchange rate and then subtract many pounds from that estimate, as its always less in practice. :( Kumar
  7. Good point Meanderingemu - I have looked from 3 months before the supposed use, to present, and there is no recorded sale confirmation - have others been paid for this usage? All my images are Alamy only exclusive - I dont sell anywhere else. I will bring this to the attention of Alamy Contributor Desk Kumar
  8. No I was not aware of it - certainly has not appeared in my "sold images" list as yet Kumar
  9. I have over 1500 images on Alamy taken in markets around the world - I tend to gravitate to them as they are crowded, colourful, interesting and represent the culture/lifestyle of the places I am visiting. I always shoot with a DSLR and a wide to medium lens. It has been very rare to find people objecting to photos being taken - the main times have been when I have (accidentally) taken a photo of a stall which has a "no photo" sign up - problem is these signs are often small and difficult to see. When this has happened I am always happy to delete the images taken. I occasionally ask permission to take a photo when I want to specifically take a posed image of a stallholder with their produce. Most of the time I dont as I want natural rather than posed images of the market. In general I find standing at the side of a stall the best position as the image can then get the stallholder selling produce to the buyer, and you dont appear to be putting a lens into anyones face! It's also good to take images quickly and move on rather than staying in one place too long - people can begin to feel they are being picked on! Most important thing I think, is to be open, friendly, smile a lot and dont creep around with a long lens in the background Kumar
  10. Thanks Steve - nice to know it was used in the paper version as well KR Kumar
  11. I understand that to be true, and would hope that PA would want to build on that rather than shut the NYC office Kumar
