  1. Doesn’t matter really if they are photos that no one else has. For something like this, what matters is whether the producers make photos available freely to editorial outlets, which is highly likely since they want to promote the programme. The papers are unlikely to pay for something that they can get free.
  2. Great topic. I do like a nice reflection. Taken last week and uploaded quickly for this challenge: General Staff Building, St Petersburg Gosford Estate Curling Lodge Sunshine on Leith
  3. It’s down again this morning. I, too, don’t like to get going before I have checked it, usually while drinking a homemade latte.
  4. Alamy says that it can take up to 9 working days for payment to appear, so that hasn’t quite expired. It’s always slower if you are paid by PayPal rather than BACS. However I would normally have expected to receive it by now so it does seem a bit slower this month. Edit: Having posted the above, my payment has just arrived!
  5. The Scottish Sun is dragging out the old Beast from the East photos again. One of mine and I’m pretty sure that the other is by Chris Strickland but I can’t see it on Alamy https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/4800856/uk-weather-forecast-coldest-winter-in-30-years-may-start-in-10-days-with-snow-event-after-snow-event-predicted/
  6. I have just returned to the U.K. to find this out. Terrible. Condolences to his family and friends.
  7. Off to a flying start in October with a presentation use for this:
  8. Good to see that Alamy have listened and are seeking our views.
  9. Two sneaky last minute end of the month $50 book sales dropped in, including one for this image taken by my great grandfather.
  10. My three: Famous faces Tania Nwachukwu, Hibaq Osman and Rachel Long, Poets Clowns
  11. Lots of tiddler editorial sales in the last few days. The Edinburgh Book Festival has resulted in six more sales this month including one of Salman Rushdie.
  12. I can confirm (being in Irkutsk at the moment) that you cannot access Alamy, Alamy Live News, or the Alamy forum in Russia, as they are all blocked. However, there is a workaround if you use a VPN, hence how I am able to make this post.
  13. I got one of those earlier this week, too. Not sure what kind of wall decor you can get for low $$. It wasn’t an image I would have thought particularly great for such use (front of a shop wording).
  14. Surprised at this license. Is the embargo on publishing photos of the little mermaid not still around? Or is it OK because the main part of the photo is s cruise ship? https://petapixel.com/2014/08/20/try-publish-picture-statue-denmark-youd-better-ready-pay/
  15. Nice editorial sale of an image of George Alagiah taken only a couple of weeks ago at the Book Festival in Edinburgh. Haven’t seen it used anywhere....yet. $28 and a few cents.
  16. 12 for $370. Ok. A couple of decent stock prices, but many tiddlers. Helped by one $$$ live news image.
  17. It’s been a busy month so haven’t had time to give this much thought but here are my three: Beast from the East snow drift Fog during 2018 heatwave Burnt trees after a forest fire in Torres Del Paine National Park, Patagonia
  18. There’s a lot going on in and around Edinburgh for news. I also do a lot of traveling. Thanks for the comment.
  19. Many thanks, both! Yes, it does feel like a full-time job....not what I set out to do, but having lots of fun in the process!
  20. A milestone for me today with my total (gross) sales topping $10,000 since I started in March 2017 with 262 images sold. Just under half of that is for this year only (122 images). Not counting today's editorial sales which have just popped in.
  21. 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.
