  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Could possibly be used to illustrate this news story https://www.nytimes.com/reuters/2019/11/11/business/11reuters-teamviewer-results.html
  4. 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)
  5. 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.
  6. đŸ˜¥ Also noticed i made a mistake of using Sep instead of September. Looking at the news feed there are different variations some people use Sep some use September, some use 14 some use 14th. Can we have a definitive answer on what format should be used?
  7. Just uploaded a set of images and made sure that i followed the instructions that were emailed to contributors on Aug 22nd. This was the instruction Captions must be in this format (in line with International media preferences): City or Village or Town where picture was shot, Country where picture was shot. Date the picture was shot - Please spell out the month, we ping to the US and they require this. Who is in the picture - left to right. What is going on in the picture including any interesting facts. Credit: Your Credit/Alamy Live News For example - Cuckmere Haven, UK. 15 August, 2019. Artist Keith Pettit places the first a series of steam-bent chestnut spheres on the beach at Cuckmere Haven in East Sussex. Made in collaboration with trug maker Charlie Groves, the complex shapes are inspired by the skeletal remains of ancient coccoliths - the calcium carbonate remains that make up the chalk of the South Downs. The exhibition ‘What Lies Beneath’ will be at the iconic coastguard cottages overlooking the Seven Sisters cliffs (pictured). Credit: Jim Holden/Alamy Live News. So just looked at my images and the format of the date has been changed on some of my images, i uploaded as per the instructions above 'Bath, Somerset, UK. 14 Sep, 2019.' and some have now been changed to Bath, Somerset, UK. 14th Sep, 2019. So are we supposed to follow the emailed instructions or do we revert back to using 14th etc? Does anybody know?

  9. One from today. London, UK, 6th September, 1997. Funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales. Princess Diana's coffin draped with the royal standard is shown being carried on a gun carriage accompanied by eight members of the Welsh Guards as the funeral procession makes it's way along Horse Guards Road.
  10. No i only noticed my image on the index page early this morning, that's what caught my eye. Looks like they updated the page at least once last night with other images, our images are still on the index page that i posted the link to.
