  1. You and Alamy might be the experts but I'm not. I have no idea what so ever what the copyright laws are in half the countries my photo's are used in . I would think that would be down to the buyer he knows where and what they are going to be used for not me! Lets face it Alamy don't even tell us where they are used so how can that be my fault. All I can tell them is if the image contains people and or property the rest is up to those guys to figure out.
  2. https://www.alamy.com/blog/releases-alamy-says-relax Without a release, you are free to upload your images to license editorially. All you need to do is; Make sure you are not breaking any laws by taking the photo in the first place (like whilst trespassing) Annotate that your images contain people and/or property Mark that you don’t have any releases Sit back and relax and let our sales team do the rest If you have annotated the images per the above, customers are notified with the following; “If you want to use the image commercially, you might also need permission from the model, artist, owner, estate, trademark or brand”. This puts the onus on them to ensure that should they wish to use an image commercially, they will need to seek releases themselves. There may be occasions where they risk using and unreleased image commercially e.g. crowd shots of unrecognizable people, but so long as you have correctly annotated your image, it isn’t your responsibility. So, what is the take away from all of this… You don’t need a release to upload and license your images for editorial uses.
  3. Im not sure! I believe Alamy have said that the US office earns more than the UK so if we have fewer contributors I guess we earn more per image. Or are you talking about the forum?
  4. For what ever reason Bison seem cause a lot of injuries but not deaths in Yellowstone. Here are the most likely causes of death. Fatalities Since Yellowstone was established in 1872, eight people have been killed by bears in the park. More people in the park have died from drowning (121 incidents), burns (after falling into hot springs, 21 incidents), and suicide (26 incidents) than have been killed by bears. To put it in perspective, the probability of being killed by a bear in the park (8 incidents) is only slightly higher than the probability of being killed by a falling tree (7 incidents), in an avalanche (6 incidents), or being struck and killed by lightning (5 incidents). Yosemite is a park I have spent a lot of time in. Here is a interesting fact. More injuries in Yosemite are inflicted by deer, with one documented death, than those caused by black bear or any other park animal. People worry about bears and mountain Lions but not the deer. Could be down to Disney and Bambi.
  5. This is the bit that confused me "where once Nellie Bly brothel stood". Lol Phew!

  7. I was living in Cairo and I either didn't have a TV or I didn't watch it and I couldn't have been listening to the radio either as the first I heard of it was a day later when the papers arrived from the UK. What a different world it is now.
  8. My best advise would be make sure all your equipment is fully insured !!!!! Shergar. They still haven't found me!!!!!!

  12. You are going to be stuck in your home for weeks during the UK winter, have to deal with icy wet streets while freezing your nuts off and your heating bills will screw you. How about Morocco Ed. Its on my list.
  13. In your opinion Marb do Canon and Nikon quality check every camera off the production line or do they randomly check a number of them?
