  1. Boris has agreed to the WA, the Irish protocol states that there will be Customs / regulatory checks in the Irish sea if there is no deal or if any agreed trade deal does not get rid of the need for checks. Page 42 onwards https://ec.europa.eu/commission/sites/beta-political/files/slides_the_wa_explained.pdf
  2. Alamy, EU & Brexit? I think contributors from outside the UK will continue uploading images as they do now, the UK leaving the EU should not stop them from continuing to do that. I have a feeling that there may be trouble ahead for Boris if he can not deliver on all the promises he has made so for UK based photojournalists there might be some interesting times ahead. As MDM mentioned above Boris can only hide behind his rhetoric for so long, the Irish sea border can only now be got rid of if any agreed trade deal does away with the need for any checks. If Boris wants to diverge there will be checks so what will Boris do, because clearly his contradictory statements can not both be true.

  4. If the website in question is Wiltshire 999's you might want to read their Contributor terms page. This conversation is going away from the op's original question so i will finish now.
  5. Yeah it's the same site, i saw the comments regarding it on a 'stop working for free' FB page. I see that the site you mention can according to it's Contributor terms "use and distribute your content without credit or remuneration".
  6. If this is the FB group that is local to me, i think they came in for a bit of grief when some working pro photographers inquired if the page paid for the images it used.

  9. I think that huge drop in price for live news online usage is going to put a lot of people off. If the fees paid do not even cover the cost of getting to a location to do a live news shoot, why would anyone cover an event on 'spec', it's a no brainer. I see that many successful and prolific live news contributors also upload to other outlets so perhaps that is an option to investigate.
  10. Can't talk about or name agency but it no longer exists. They were used because the pic desks saw the images and picked them, as you say they could have used a stock image but perhaps the fresh new image was better for them.
  11. Go and look at the business pages in the newspapers that have covered similar 'stories' and tell me how many similar images you see. From experience i know that images such as this one do get used to illustrate news relating to what a 'company' is doing etc.
  12. Could possibly be used to illustrate this news story https://www.nytimes.com/reuters/2019/11/11/business/11reuters-teamviewer-results.html
  13. Very very sad news, only knew Keith via the forums but he came across as a really nice guy. Sincere condolences to his family and friends. I saw this posted on FB and i think it sums up the feelings of many who were lucky to have known Keith. Our town has fallen silent, It will never be the same, For it has lost a legend, Keith Morris was his name. His pictures told a story, Of a place we all call home, A camera on his shoulder, Wherever he did roam. Such a warm and friendly guy, Our one and only pap, His shots of storms and starling clouds, Put us firmly on the map. He made so many happy, With photos crystal clear, Of sunsets, life and people, And good old seaside cheer. We took his skill for granted, Always thought he would be there, It’s hard to keep perspective, Through our sadness and despair. Our town has fallen silent, Only time will heal the pain, But his photos will remind us, Until we meet again. Howie Oliver (06-10-19)
  14. Hi James, Thanks for the compliment, you got some nice images today too by the looks of it. I think todays route made getting nice clean images a lot harder, last years route was much better photographically. Yeah we will have to stop and have a chat some day. I just looked at the How to sell Live News images' webpage on the Alamy website and saw this "The caption needs to be in this format: town/city, country, date (in format 1st April, 2015.), description, credit. For example: Los Angeles, USA. 1st Apr, 2015. Elton John trips over as he walks along the red carpet at the 101st Grammy Awards Ceremony in Los Angeles, USA. Credit: John Smith/Alamy Live News." I used to always use the format 14th September etc but then my images were changed to Sep so i think i will pop an email off to the live news team to get a definitive answer,. It's not really a big issue but speed is key in this game and i want to be 100% correct so the live news team can concentrate on pushing the images out and not correcting my mistakes.
