  1. I've had a couple of sales on weekends, just figured it had to do with the different time zones.
  2. I don't take any chances, I always apply for a photo pass to cover any concert, some artists do allow editorial use images, but you are only allowed to photograph the first 3 songs. Others do not allow any photos at all. Some artist do have very strict rules, such as taking down their photos after 6 months, no easy task if you have uploaded their photos to an agency.
  3. My experience is 6 to 8 photos per event for newspapers,and a maximum of 20 photo for news agencies.
  4. 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.
  5. The young photographers are busy selling microstock photography.
  6. I always check off my photos as Rights Managed, any reason why I should choose Royalty free.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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 .
  11. YouTube has a few videos on setting your back button focus for Sony cameras, which could be of help.
  12. 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.
  13. When I shoot outdoors during the day, if I can see the sun I shot manual, 200 iso, 1/200 sec at f16.
