  7. Hi Heru ... I have taken many photos in Java and Bali ... mainly lifestyle, everyday people doing everyday things ! Yes, there are some images of my first javanese wife and many of my second Javanese wife !! There are so many photo opportunities in Indonesia ... and many different lifestyles ... there is a big difference between rich and poor people, village people and city people ... so many different ways people work to live and how they enjoy their leisure time ... get shooting !
  8. An impossible question to answer really ... have a look through the "images found" every month to get a feel of what sells .... have a look at what your area / town / city has to offer ... people doing things, working, lifestyle etc ... and when you think of something, have a search on Alamy to see if what you want to do is different to what is already there. I had a friend visit this morning and something she is involved in gave me some ideas ... I checked on Alamy and there are less than fifty not so special images ... so I will shoot some that are different ... that's how it works ...
  9. Yes, I have had film sales from slides and negatives that I "scan" using my digital camera but they are from older historical type images ...
  10. 1) Film scans are fine provided they are spotted / blemish free. 2) Subtle nudes don't seem to be a problem in context, glamour style are not accepted. 3) No reason not to work with her or anyone else ... not sure what you mean by frozen forever though ... wether or not they sell is dependent upon how you shoot them ! 4) Not sure wether exclusive would have a higher ranking than non exclusive ... all of my images are RM, marked as non exclusive despite only being on Alamy ... if the buyer requires exclusive material, they will contact Alamy and Alamy will check with you wether t
  11. Hi, so much stuff for you to shoot in Indonesia ... a lifetime of stuff in fact ! I had my highest selling sale last year price wise, taken in Java ! A tip for you ... two of your four photos are black and white ... they look good but submit in colour instead ... a client can always convert them to black and white should they wish to ...

  13. For what it's worth, I had images removed by Alamy of the front and centre pages of the 1969 moon landings that were in the Daily Mirror ... apparently the newspaper's lawyers had a moan about copyright infringement, not for the photos in the article as, ironically, they were distributed freely by NASA, but because it infringed their page layout design ... given that the Daily Mirror circulation has been dwindling for years, I would have thought they would welcome all of the free publicity they could get !!
