  1. This one of mine in The Guardian in a piece about livestock suffering in the heatwave.


    Article here https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/jul/13/sunscreen-for-cows-uk-farmers-struggle-to-cope-with-heatwave


    All three pix from Alamy - Graham Turner, Andrew Gardner and mine. 


    No fee yet hasn’t appeared on my account - was only in The Guardian a couple of days ago.

    The main purpose of the forum is that it helps Alamy. It means that newbies are helped, and questions get answered. It takes pressure off Contributor Relations or whatever it is called now.


    Also, a  lot of potential conspiracy theories get challenged and laid to out in the fresh air rather than festering away and multiplying in the darkness!


    Whether helping newbies and answering questions helps us as individuals depends on your opinion, but I am grateful to receive help and so like to try and reciprocate. 


    Personally I have had enough of private forums - I much prefer this one with Alamy's usually light-touch oversight.


    Back to the topic. I'd like it personally if everybody posted 'number of sales + gross'. I find it useful to know what figures we are working with and what can be achieved by those better/more successful than me. 


    Rather than us all putting up our numbers individually with subjective comments I’d like to see alamy publish some data. Anonymised analysis ie count of contributors who sold 0-25, 26-50, 50+ images for gross revenue <100, <200, <300 etc. Per month and per year categories. Plus some trending going back 1year, 5 years, 10 years. That would be way more useful than us trying to draw conclusions from a subset of contributors who visit this forum, Have alamy ever been approached to do this?

    Had a packet of those in the freezer but they didn't say how they wanted them photographed. i.e. Product with box, without box, one or two, cooked or frozen, with fries, without fries, on a plate, or on a tray or with a white background, so I didn't bother. Extra info would be helpful.


    You can go on their twitter feed and ask. I’ve done that and i got the extra info.

    They're "under 500000" these days, just, according to my recent licence details

    Mail or Sun, I'm afraid.

    And what exactly was wrong with my images of the Walton beach huts, I'd like to know??


    Thanks for the info. And to answer your question- no idea but I seem to have the market on Walton beach huts at the mo, this is the second sold from the same shoot both for decent fees. I guess I got lucky 😄.

    Try: Michael Ventura Alamy -site:alamy.com

    The -site:alamy.com excludes Alamy itself. You do get the odd Alamy.de image though.

    There's probably a syntax to exclude them both at the same time.




    I took Wim’s string and added to it, which has worked eg Angela Chalmers Alamy - site:alamy.com -site:alamy.de -site:alamy.es -site:alamy.pt


    Needs a bit more work to exclude all the alamy derivatives but you get the idea.


    I tried using &&& as a wildcard but that didn’t work. I was trying to get to syntax which would exclude any alamy domain without having to list them all.


    Thanks Wim 😄
