  1. I thought I had mostly deleted abstract background type images from very early uploads, before I really knew what was likely to sell, but just sold this one. Only $5 of course.
  2. I had a Tweet used as an embedded Tweet by Huffington Post France. That’s legal. But then a French journalist (who ought to know better) cropped the photo from the Tweet and used it in a Tweet of her own. Not legal. I emailed her. She was very sniffy (I ought to be grateful for the promotion, etc) and simply deleted the Tweet. I do have a screenshot of it though. I sent her an invoice (very small amount) and not surprisingly it wasn’t paid. I completed the form for the European simple procedure but there isn’t an online way to submit this, unlike in the U.K., and you have to find an email address for the appropriate court eg in Paris and it’s almost impossible to know which one to send it to. I picked one in the district of her office and sent it off, but never got any kind of reply or acknowledgement. So unless this happens in the UK it seems very difficult to pursue.
  3. Thank you for including one of mine, too. And I didn’t vote for my own.
  4. I decided to branch out and sign up with another news agency that gives me 70%. That seems like what photographers ought to get paid. Maybe they don’t have the reach of Alamy Live News but I’ve had some sales.
  5. We flew in a three seater plane to Canaima from Southern Venezuela with a pilot who wore an eyepatch over one eye. I didn’t think it boded well, but we did arrive safely.
  6. Aha, thanks. Looks pretty much the same article so presumably only one use.
  7. A couple of Live News photos here by Keith Morris and Simon Dack. The heatwave is even news in Australia. https://www.cairnspost.com.au/lifestyle/health/british-womans-crazy-way-to-beat-the-heat-is-peak-insanity/news-story/bf4ddaf1a7a84e96ffa2137828279319 and some more by me, Carolyn Jenkins and Paul Lawrenson here https://www.cairnspost.com.au/technology/uk-tipped-for-more-hotter-days-as-global-emissions-rise/news-story/c545e0a7c7ec6433b4854654aebfb73d
  8. Nice mid $$ magazine sale. License doesn’t start until September 1st. Not see a date in the future before.
  9. Looks like a rhubarb crumble. PS don’t forget they’re called puddings 😉

  11. Ok, thanks very much.
  12. You can opt out of NU of course. Or choose to remain in because sales will increase your ranking. It’s a difficult decision but I opted for the former to avoid these scenarios.
  13. I’ve opted out for the majority of my images except when I cover an event such as a marathon when it’s possible that individuals may indeed want a photo of themselves. I can’t be doing with chasing inappropriate personal uses - there are enough other infringements to go after.
  14. Unless there is contact information, which I can’t see on that website/webpage, then unfortunately Alamy won’t chase it. There are gazillions of these fake type webpages copying Alamy images and there is very little one can do about them. If they use google ads, it may be worth reporting them as abusing copyright through the google ads abuse form.
  15. I do take photos of children, but don’t have much in the way of action. Here are my three: The Joy of Jumping with a new dynamic carbon fibre turbo brace More jumping at a Medieval Day Don’t try this at home
  16. I’m a Micro Four Thirds person. I turn up to press calls with lightweight gear and pity the others burdened by heavy cameras and lenses. No doubt there is a macho thing involved, but since some news agencies insist on maximum 1500 kB image sizes, I just wonder why they bother.
  17. Thank you for selecting one of mine, too. Now to choose....not mine of course.
  18. Just be careful with those tags. Pitlochry isn’t in the Cairngorms really, it’s in Perthshire. River Tummel isn’t either, though it’s close to the ‘Cairngorms National Park’, but not in the ‘Cairngorms’ mountains, which is what someone would be searching for using that term.
  19. 17 sales for $562. Not a bad month. Lots more as yet to be reported sales to come in July....
  20. The Guardian Sally Anderson wildlife JDGFM3 . One of my many trips to the wonderful Isle of May https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2019/jun/30/wildlife-tour-of-eastern-scotland-puffin-red-squirrels Group of Atlantic puffins, Fratercula arctica, on cliff top with puffin hovering in air, Isle of May, Firth of Forth, Scotland, UK Also in print along with: Angus Alexander Chisholm BCENKH Isle of May Firth of Forth Scotland Plus a red squirrel and Glen Clova Hotel I cant find
