  1. Thanks for the advice, Ed. Are you considered naked if you wear a scarf? Ha, ha!. I would say strictly no, but it would depend on where you wore it! Shoes and nothing else are quite common, but the invitation to the riders is to "dress as you dare". Avpics, do you think the WNBR chooses that day to maximise the audience potential? It must be a shock to the tourists there for just the ceremony.
  2. Thanks, Martin. That's good advice. I'm not particularly well set up to do that on my own, I would miss most of the event. I could see it working with an assistant though. My IT man is a keen amateur photographer. He has been asking to accompany me on a shoot. I'll ask him if he wants to help.
  3. Thank you very much, Spacecadet, Avpics, Funkyworm and TeCee. Your information has clarified many things and made me confident about uploading. I take your point, TeCee about the need to post rapidly to maximize the newsworthyness. I have now uploaded from last year and the year before. Hopefully, I'll be quicker off the mark this year. I do like to cover the route from start to finish (which is a bit exhausting for an old codger) unlike some press guys I saw at the beginning but not later on. One of the best parts on the route is the famous Canal Street in Manchester, which is reached near the end of the ride.
  4. Thanks for your input Matt, Redsnapper and Avpics. I am reading things like "I believe", "I hope" and 'just for personal use ticked by default, but available for all uses'. Thanks, but this does not convince me that should an image be printed in, say, a magazine, that someone recognisable in it might sue for its use without permission. I noticed the occasional participant shying away from my camera. When I saw that, I didn't take a shot, but they could have been in another image, clearly shown. I would prefer to have a definitive answer from Alamy staff, if possible. I would also be interested to know if any sales have been made from Naked Bike Ride images, and their usages. Is there a way of knowing what sales have been made from other people's images? I know my own, but others?
  5. Thanks for responding, Matt. Clicking on the images in the collection you linked to me, showed that the images were only available for personal use and a vague warning that those wanting to use the image commercially might need permission from the model. I was hoping that my images could be available for editorial use without releases. It's a newsworthy event and clearly releases would not be available. I would have thought the likelihood of making sales for personal use would be very small.
  6. Starting again after my first attempt froze with me trying to put in a link to a Flickr album, and a third time after last year in numbers was identified as a spam word!! I have been a contributor for a long time, but have always had signed model releases whenever recognisable people were in the images. I have photographed the Manchester edition of the World Naked Bike Ride in 2015 and last year. There are lots of, what I think are, great shots telling the story of a historically interesting event. Naturally, there is lots of nudity. The shots were taken of people in public places by me also in public places. They have proved to be very popular on Flickr, as you can imagine! My question is, could these images be sold as stock?
