  1. Half of my sales are of fashion shows, the rest are varied subjects from my collection of images. So variety yes.
  2. Most noise happens in the underexposed area of you photos, so a underexposed photo shot at 400 ISO will contain more noise than a properly exposed photo at 800 ISO.
  3. https://www.instagram.com/rawdonphotos Here is the link to mine.
  4. It seems to me when I made my first submission to Alamy back in the Fall of 2017, they had 70 some million photos in their collection. Today some 140 million, with these numbers you need some luck and great keywords to have your work discovered in searches.
  5. I believe is you upload regularly, (myself I add new images to my collection several times a week) you get a 3 star rating, less often, less stars.
  6. Took me a little over 1 year to upload my first 1,000 photos, looking forward to 2,000 images by years end. I have had 3 stars way before I hit the 1,000 image mark.
  7. Here is a short film, inside North Korea by snowboarder Jamie Borrow.
  8. I'm waiting for the day when my camera does all the keywording for me!
  9. It is best to contact the show producers first for photo accreditation guidelines, and don't show up in the pit row with a tripod, and expect to shoot the entire concert.
  10. If needed alamy can give you accreditation, simply email them at contributors@alamy.com
  11. Yes they have done so in the past, just that for the moment they don't issue any press ID's
  12. Last September 21st we had record high temperature of +30 Celcius, so I was out scouting for images of people coping with this unusual hot weather.
  13. alamy could do like some other agencies, after 10 live news submissions you can qualify for press credentials.
  14. If you're on a public right of way - such as a public pavement, footpath or public highway - you're free to take photographs for personal and commercial use so long as you're not causing an obstruction to other users or falling foul of anti-Terrorism laws or even the Official Secrets Act. Professional photography is banned in London's Trafalgar Square and Parliament Square as well as the Royal Parks. Of course what is not clear is what can be interpreted as an anti-terrorism act?
  15. It is always best to get permission from the producer, many times they will be more than happy to allow you on the set to get photos, either as they are filming, or between takes. But I know here in Quebec, some actors don't want photos taking of them from so-called 3rd party photographers, also on occasions producers don't want to public to see before hand any scenes in case their plot is inadvertently leaked.
  16. My uploads from the 27 and 28 passed, 29th of March is till in QC. Of course it is Easter weekend after all, so one can expect delays.
  17. Welcome fellow Canadian to alamy
  18. Used for a presentation, newsletter or powerpoint, not very paying, but I guess every sale counts. Valterri Bottas Mercedes AMG at the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal,Canada.
  19. Surprised to read you never shoot above ISO 320, a good number of my shots with my Olympus are done above, some way above ISO 320. My night shots are done at ISO 1250 at 1\15 second, hand held.
  20. Basically means you took the image with the sole purpose of offering it for editorial use only, and captioned it as so.
  21. I'm not sure if graffiti counts as street art or murals, but just in case I tag mine for editorial use only.
  22. I shoot with a Canon 1D MKIV and an Olympus OM-D E-M1. Love my Canon but now use my Olympus more often, lighter than my 1D and very little difference in image quality. See if you can tell which of my photos where done with my Canon and which where shot with my Olympus. I did have some reservations about the smaller Olympus sensor, but image quality is superior to my Canon 7D, and competes with my 1D Mark IV.
