    Just had an email revoking my access to Live News uploads - fair enough, as I'm not a news photographer and only occasionally submit such images. However I notice the new time limit is for submission within one hour of the event, which seems a bit tight to me - anyone else have any thoughts on this?



    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.

  2. 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.

    It would be bloody useful when the fire crew are letting a guy I know to have a laugh with purely from news incidents get closer and better positions than me though lol.  I have actually been surprised at how unbitchy news work seems to be - there is good-natured competition but I have had help from everyone from the big guns (national camera crews) down to other freelancers.  

    Did your guy got closer to the incident because he had a press card, or because he knew the fire crew?

  4. I was with Demotix until they where bought and closed by Getty, since then made 1 sale for $300 from Getty.  So I imagine if alamy or AFP make any sales from your photos they will forward you your payment.


    I know photographers who where with Newzulu when they had an office in Montreal and made regular sales. But it was a whole different story  when they closed the Montreal office and did all their operations in France, they seemed to be completely disorganized and no idea of what was going on in Quebec.
