  4. Cal, that is exactly what I use on a daily basis. One other approach is to use a reverse image search on any photos zoomed. Google images works OK. Alternative, as a news photographer I use “Matt Hancock Alamy” -Alamy.com (for example) to see if any of my Matt Hancock pictures have been used. These techniques don’t always work if the picture is behind a paywall and it does , for some reason, throw up some false negatives.

  6. I don’t know, The picture sold recently, (21st May 2021) although it was taken in June 2019. The usage has only just shown up in my search algorithm on that website. Perhaps a relaunch/rebranding? I got paid (a pittance) so I not really bothered….

  10. Exactly right. As a largely news shooter I have bad days (most of the time) and good days. I enjoy what I do, I have a fair understanding of what sells and plug away week after week. On occasion I get a surprise when I get a reasonable fee for an old news image. When I stop enjoying it then I will give up.

  14. I am with you on this. I am shooting much the same news as I always have and it is more difficult to find. In addition, in my world the newspapers don’t appear to be buying as much and paying less.... My issue is do I continue with what I have always done, and until recently judging by sales, quite successfully, or do I push myself into new stuff without knowing it will sell? I did a gallery shoot today, but so did a lot of other Alamy contributors. It is about finding a new area, time to get creative I guess...
