  1. I agree with spacecadet. Also what about the importance of documenting what we’re going through for historical purposes? That’s important surely.
  2. Nice reminder of sunny days in Barcelona when i’m laid up with a cold in the wet and windy UK. PU licence, $
  3. I have the G9x MK II and have hundreds of images through QC and they account for about half my sales including several at $$$. (The other half of my images are from a Canon 6D MK II). With the G9 I mostly shoot in Aperture priority F8 or F11 and i keep the ISO at 125 or 200. I shoot jpgs. I’m really happy with the results i get.
  4. Calendar, print run 5000, $$. Pleased with this as last January i didnt sell a single image. Good to get the ball rolling early in 2020. 😄
  5. Ian’s earlier post on Orphan Works Puzzlement ..But Alamy puts them up for sale. Plenty of “photographer unknown”, and ‘`copyright not claimed” images like this one - J0R23N. Is that because “orphan works” is only a thing in UK law so if the purchaser is elsewhere the original copyright owner has no remedy?
  6. I’ve bought some boxes of amateur 1960s transparencies which i’m copying with a mind to selling here via archive/ reportage. They’re all of London - trooping the colour, state opening of parliament etc. My question is about copyright - are these images now mine to sell?
  7. $$$ gross -70% (30+40 distro - ouch). Calendar use, Japan. Still it makes up for the $1 NU sale yesterday.
  8. Decent $$ Calendar inside and front cover, 20,000 print run. Worldwide.
  9. $$$ Calendar front page, I’m delighted, i walked a few hundred metres from my house looking for anything to photograph when I was shooting weather for live news. I saw this in the otherwise empty car park. The car was the only thing around that had any colour and I liked how it stood out from the snow.
  10. I’m interested to know why that doesnt breach Microsofts copyright? Also thinking i should take images of my laptop screen which has multiple software company logos at any given time.
  11. I could never do a wedding, or portraits for that matter, ,<shudder> - too many people, too much pressure. if i take 1000 images and drop my card somewhere i’ve noone to answer to except myself.
  12. Wow Betty that struck a chord with me. I spend hours out by myself with my camera and I get completely absorbed in what I’m doing. The exception recently has been photo trips out with a friend who i introduced to Alamy who is equally enthusiastic. Angela
  13. I’d like to give the class a 24 shot 35mm film and say “right, you’ve got to make that last a week and you have to get them processed at Boots. All creativity done in the camera. No post-production tinkering allowed. Oh, and you’ll have to wait two weeks to see what you’ve got”. OK, i’m a dinosaur.
  14. Why should we not discuss Stockimo here? It’s another arm of Alamy isnt it?
  15. I’m 53. I did O Level photography at school and have loved it ever since. My daughter is doing GCSE photography and has spent the afternoon preparing “contact sheets”. . She looked blank when I explained how negatives (wot?) used to come into CONTACT with the photographic paper. Her teacher might not even remember that. Started on stock 6 years ago failed and gave up. Restarted when Alamy relaxed on which cameras were acceptable. I work full tine, this is just a hobby, and when I get a sale (1 or 2 a month) it feels like a small lottery win 😄.
  16. Worldwide unlimited usage multi media mid $$. Women’s Tour of Britain in Suffolk 2018. https://www.alamy.com/thumbsImages.aspx?url=https://c7.alamy.com/comp/P1NHB5/kesgrave-uk-13th-june-2018-uk-news-ovo-energy-womens-tour-stage-1-passes-through-kesgrave-suffolk-this-morning-credit-angela-chalmersalamy-live-news-P1NHB5.jpg&imageref=P1NHB5
  17. If you’re in the Uk lots of buildings usually closed to the public open their doors temporarily from 13th. Photo opportunities galore. more info at the link below. https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/visiting
  18. Haha looks like John and i should start a consultancy 😄
  19. Ian i’ve just done it in Numbers. Different to Excel but I got there, same COUNTIF function. Unfortunately no way to attach a screenshot. Email me if you want to take this offline before Alamy notice we’ve turned this board into an IT helpdesk! (sorry Alamy) ange.chalmers@btinternet.com
  20. From a data analytics point of view it’s very easy. I think the question is whether or not Alamy think thats a service they want to provide. If you want some XL type coaching I’m just across the river! I don’t know the Numbers spreadsheet though.
