  1. My experience is 6 to 8 photos per event for newspapers,and a maximum of 20 photo for news agencies.
  2. Up here cold weather stars at about -20C. Never had any issues with my camera gear failing at minus double digits temperature. The trick is to dress warm, and I use mitts similar to the ones of flotsom to help keep my fingers warms.
  3. The young photographers are busy selling microstock photography.
  4. I always check off my photos as Rights Managed, any reason why I should choose Royalty free.
  5. I have covered events that needed media accreditation, where the photos could only be used for editorial purposes. These photos are the only ones that I list as For Editorial Only.
  6. If you have had live news photos sold in the past with alamy you can apply. I did not need to re apply having had sales in the past.
  7. A few years back I had the luxury of sending off my photos within 2 hours of an event. Today, I, like most other photographers covering an event or spot news need to ship off photos minutes after the start of an event.
  8. I have submitted various events to alamy live news, and have always been accepted. The one rejection was one time when the incorrect date was in the IPTC .
  9. YouTube has a few videos on setting your back button focus for Sony cameras, which could be of help.
  10. The best camera is the one you have with you, so true. Getty do have some very talented photographers, but they seem to have a very aggressive sales team, and like to push their weight around almost to the point of bullying.
  11. When I shoot outdoors during the day, if I can see the sun I shot manual, 200 iso, 1/200 sec at f16.
  12. I've just uploaded an image without any trouble.
  13. Most of my photos are shot with a Canon 1D MK IV, which is not a full frame camera. The rest is done with my 7D, not a full frame either. Quality wise I prefer my images done with my 1D, but here on alamy I sell nearly as many images done with my 7D as with my 1D. A couple years back alamy had around 70 million images available, today they are up to 155 million. These figures probably have more to do with your low sales than your camera's sensor size.
