  1. So sad, but a good pic.
  2. Slow/disappointing month

    I'm not giving up, Ian, I've too much time invested into Alamy for that, but something has to change soon. We're not the only ones in this situation, so keep your chin up and keep uploading!
  3. They're on sale now. You have to wait for the database to update, which happens the next day.
  4. Ooh, well done! Lucky bugger!
  5. Who Are We?

    Full time here, stock is a small (at the moment) part of my business, with commercial bringing in 50% of my income, events (with my printer around 25% and press, tuition etc making up the rest.

  10. Backup camera body?

  11. News photographic ethics

    Well that is what they do it for, isn't it?!
  12. Going to Malaga - what to shoot?

    Well my first Malaga picture was a bit unexpected! r
  13. Ha, they ask when I'm in the office. When I'm not around, they just take!
  14. It drives me mad - they come into my home office with the 'Puss-in-Boots' look and ask in an oh so quiet voice if they can borrow some batteries, promising they'll put them back when they're finished with them. A few hours later I have to go and retrieve said batteries.
