  4. Thought I'd post here for the last time before I'm zapped from Alamy at midnight tonight 😄 Guardian online....... https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2021/jul/23/10-of-the-uks-best-seaside-festivals-and-summer-beach-parties Margate beach opposite Dreamland.

  5. A little early, in case I can't post later. I only terminated my contract yesterday, and my content has already gone. Poor month with 5 items licenced for $62.77 gross. At 40% that would be just $25.10 for me. or £18.12 (before 19% corp. tax). A few that I know of still to report. Alamy pay monthly when cleared, even if below the $50 threshold. Let's hope the bank charges are less than the licence fees ! I still have a refunded licence that hasn't been re-instated. Used in a book. I shall contact the UK publisher myself and invoice, as 8 m
  6. My business plan.......I will be exterminated from here come the contract change ! Not just the contract, but the 40% share for us, for ever decreasing paltry fees, I won't accept anymore. So my exclusive Alamy images will be sorted out and edited again. Have a couple of places under consideration. It doesn't have to be like this. Other work I have on a 50/50 RM exclusive contract has done very well financially for me over the years. I don't feel making new images for upload here makes much of a business sense, unless you are a library company placing l
  7. I think you mean the Press Association ! I know it confuses me at times too. Associated Press is different, a US based news organisation I believe.
  8. BBC News website, Business section.... https://www.bbc.com/news/business-57632831 photographer tomeqs 2BWND41 Binance cryptocurrency exchange website interface on a smartphone
  9. I had to look up to see what VAR meant ! Wasn't there a time when BAPLA membership required libraries to pay at least 50% to the photographer ? If so, I guess that's long gone out the window. Onwards and downwards. Or out the door.
  10. I just didn't hear back from them. I just had a look at my Brabazon Hangar pictures, and they are archive. If I recall correctly, it was quite some time later after applying, that it was decided I/everybody/most/those with good QC record (?) could upload via the archival route. Anyway, even non archive stuff film scans that I have uploaded have passed QC okay, and why should they not ? Always have done. Just check for the dreaded dust !
  11. Alamy state that if restricting from PU, then you may miss out on distro sales. I restricted from PU uses, and yes, had about one Distributor sale in a year.
  12. Thanks, that's what I thought. Tried twice as well. Even have a picture of the old train shed roof at London Bridge railway station, a listed structure, that was dismantled. My photo seems to be one of only two on Alamy. Also have a couple inside the Brabazon Hangar at Bristol's aerospace works, whilst in use as a commercial works. Also no longer possible to repeat. Oh well.

  14. Presentation use. The licence fee being enough for a cup of tea (from a greasy spoon, not a coffee chain). For those that worry about QC of old film....I didn't get accepted for the archival route, so I just put this and some other old scans thru the normal QC, for all to pass okay.
