  1. This machine is a replica of the type of aircraft in which Alcock and Brown flew the Atlantic 100 years ago in June just gone. Fourth different image sale of flying shots of this aircraft sold this year. It didn't fly very often and is now grounded on display at Brooklands so I'm lucky to have a selection of flying images available. Country: Germany ; Usage: Consumer goods ; Media: Puzzles ; Print run: up to 1,000 ; Start: 01-June-2019 ; End: 01-June-2022. Sadly a distro.
  2. A PU has just popped in. I'd rather it was a larger sale but still money I didn't have this morning.
  3. Exactly. It's just a file on a database which gets used in any way that the customer wants it to - within any limits of licence chosen by photographer or releases - returning a value related to that use. There's no algorithm for the sale for image quality or cost expended in taking the image.
  4. Have you deleted one? My AIM count is 21960. Deleted, improved and re-uploaded-for-stock news images would account for most mine.
  5. Unless I'm misunderstanding Penny, the old live news feed is still available https://www.alamy.com/news/newsresults.aspx 'Live News' as an option in the normal search box will hopefully bring in more trade but I wonder if the customer will be happy to pay live fees if they're really looking for stock?
  6. Usage: Commercial electronic ; Media: Website, app and social media ; Start: 15-July-2019 ; End: 15-July-2024 ; Additional Details: Websites, apps, social media and blogs (excludes advertising). Worldwide for 5 years. An image that went on sale 10 July and reported today.
  7. Such Ts & Cs are pretty standard for airshows and other similar paid ticketed events. Thankfully at such events as airshows and motorsport a huge percentage of the general public take in and use 'pro' camera equipment with big lenses so actually getting them in and taking good pictures isn't an issue such as it might be at concerts and some other sporting events. Frustratingly after nearly thirty years and hundreds of published images I rarely get granted media access to airshows, so most were sold technically against those Ts & Cs, but the shows organisers are well aware that most published images come from freelancers in the crowd.
  8. Thanks yet again Alan. Some people have an issue with the success of 'our' airport, but I certainly don't!
  9. +1. It's the market which is changing, and Alamy are just a small part of that but being with them can still bring the $$$ sales - unlike those MS agencies
  10. An EU PU, of an old 2005 image trawled from storage and uploaded more recently:
  11. It's labeled here as a Model A 1929: https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjCjoWDq63jAhWSDGMBHSknB90QjRx6BAgBEAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thejournal.ie%2Fhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.thejournal.ie%2Foffer%2Fford-model-a-1929-3148423-Dec2016%2F%3Fembedpost%3D3148423%26width%3D400%26height%3D460&psig=AOvVaw19j2G_WTH7aXET0S0RtMfu&ust=1562950423125185
  12. Same here, and likewise with near-naked female weather shots, but hopefully these are close enough to the brief:
  13. Quite a nice image, but it was the image number that caught my eye: _DSC0999
  14. Congratulations to Colin Woods for his winning image 'Enduring sadness'.
  15. Extremely difficult to narrow down a selection, but I hope these meet with approval. Poll closes on 7 July at midnight.
  16. My apologies for being quiet on this thread. Time away, and catching up from time away have kept me very busy. Many of these images are extremely thought provoking and powerful, and worth spending proper time on selecting those for the voting. Thank you all for sharing
  17. 18 for $500. Lower in quantity than most of this year, but higher in value per image. Can't seem to win!
  18. I've just noticed that I've gone through $20,000 of sales since joining Alamy, although most of that is from 2015 onward. I did very little in the early days after becoming a contributor and what I did add was done so with little understanding of what the stock industry was about (still not totally sure!)
  19. True, but when my UKNS reports come in that's usually when the portly lady takes to the mic.
  20. Also here: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9384483/typhoon-jets-air-india-stansted-latest/ https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/27/air-india-plane-forced-land-london-stansted-bomb-threat-board-10079575/
