  2. It would be great to have the Huffington post back.
  3. Thank you Betty for your kind words and you and the others for taking the time to post your opinions. That is exactly what I need to help me make a decision on what I should do next . Im searching, researching and reading everything that I can find. My biggest problem is that I shoot so many different things "sport, wildlife, landscape and any stock I can think of" It would be a lot easier if I didn't cover so much. Nevertheless variety is the spice of life and hopefully I will find a combination that will cover all. We are lucky to have so much trusted knowledge available on these Alamy discussion boards . Once again thank you so much to all that have posted on this and other topics that have been so helpful . Best wishes to all.
  4. I do like English bacon butty's. But mostly Im with you Betty. American bacon fried crisp and eaten as is or chopped up on everything from salads to baked potatoes with sour cream and chives, it's pretty hard to beat. Im not really a fan of Canadian bacon .
  5. It comes from the loin Betty and is known as back bacon. American Bacon is known as streaky bacon in the UK and as in the US it comes from the belly.
  6. Boy what a nightmare it is. So many choices! The last time I did this I was buying glass for a Canon 300D, very little choice back then. Why do these camera companies make all the models sound alike? Im not so interested in having the latest video I fear that could lead to major computer upgrades, heaven forbid. Canon seems to have slipped behind a bit over the years and I have been repairing cameras because I have glass and repairing glass because I have cameras . I have not kept up very well with other developments as I have always thought the only time I need to know anything about cameras is when I have needed to buy one and that has always been replacing one canon model for the next. Times have changed!!! I think Im going to stick between Nikon and Sony, adding anything else could fry the little brain that's left. Appreciate all and any help Best Shergar (completely lost once again)
  7. Congratulations! I hope you have a wonderful year. Its great to see so many Brits helping you out. All the Best Duncan
  8. The gear bag I hump around :- 5yr old Canon 7Dmkii with a 15yr old L100-400. 4yr old 6D with a 13yr old L24-70 2.8 . The 100-400 has been repaired many times and the repairs have cost more than the lens did in the first place. the L24-70 has also been repaired many times. The 7Dmkii has 100,000s of clicks on it. Now the 6D is causing problems and Im looking at anything between $250 and $400 to fix it. Canon repair costs have gone nuts. I shoot sport, wildlife, landscape and any stock I can think of. Because of my glass I have been tied to Canon for many years. Im thinking of replacing the 6D with the Sony rx100 vii so will have a small walk about camera for a change that's up to date and will cover everything that the old 6D 24-70 did and more. Then when the 7D and the 100-400 give up the ghost replacing them with another Sony. Or do I just repair the 6D or buy another Canon. Im betwixt and between. Any thoughts would be appreciated ..... Thanks
  9. Joys new And troubles few Are what we wish for you. Congratulations on your new home. Mr and Mrs Shergar
  10. My guess! The price is about right and the clues you have given point towards AAA Westway magazine . Thats triple A
  11. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7589757/Wife-makes-poignant-journey-loved-VW-camper-van-husbands-coffin-back.html Way to go !!! RIP Keith
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
