  1. If live news images are being sold to stock clients during the 'live news' period for a huge discount then what is the point of 'live news'? There is no incentive for us to go out and shoot live news anymore if the fees are to be brutally honest crap. Have Alamy staff taken a pay cut? Have the top management taken a pay cut? Does Alamy honestly think that contributors will continue to shoot live news when the rewards are so poor, perhaps that is what they want. I wonder do the big news agencies who sell via the Alamy live news feed get to experience the same low fees or do they have a special

I have been uploading less in the last year due to covid restrictions etc and as a live news contributor, the increasingly lower fees that we are getting for live news content has been making me consider my options going forward. This new contract now makes it clear now that playing by the rules and being exclusive at Alamy is not good business model anymore.
  7. It was nice to meet you on Saturday. I have learned never to complain about a sale.
