  1. Ridiculous sale through Italian sub agent. In October last year I found one of my images on the front page of a national Italian newspaper "La Stampa" which has a print run of over 300,000 copies. Finally, last week the sale was reported: Country: Italy Usage: Editorial Media: Magazine - print, digital and electronic Print run: up to 10,000 Placement: Inside Image Size: 1/4 page Start: 01 October 2014 End: 01 October 2019 Duration: 1 month Price $38.83 After Alamy and the agents cut, it left me with $11.65!!! A front page of a national newspaper for $11.65. I contacted Alamy telling them that the sale had been misreported, and they should get further clarification from the agent. Low and behold, the sale was reported correctly yesterday: Country: Italy Usage: Editorial Media: Newspaper - national Print run: up to 250,000 Placement: Front cover and online Image Size: 1/8 page Start: 30 September 2014 End: 01 October 2014 Print run: 350,000. Price $38.83 The price stayed the same!!!! Its a joke!! In April I will be deselecting Italy from distribution. Recently I stopped shooting News Images for Alamy because of rubbish sales from Italy. My days of collaborating with Alamy are numbered. Time to move on and work on other things. www.gariwilliams.com
