  1. The buyers have to sign up for monthly subs on micro stock for quite a few pounds and they've complained when they cancel their subscriptions they get charged a whole lot more . If they just downloaded a single image it wouldn't cost much less than alamy's cheapest images but contributors get pennies ,sometimes a pound or two, certainly on a site called Sh______ & people have been leaving there in droves recently. It's the greedy owners of these sites who are to blame as they must be either wasting a lot on marketing or keeping the extra money themselves. Surely there a more ethical buyers who want contributors to be decently paid for their work.
  2. Someone on one of the micro sites took loads of pics of various garbage or rubbish & was on editorial due to labels brands on the items but they still sold.
  3. Marks photo is what the pub looks like now
  4. On another site (by the firm that does photoshop) they generate keywords by the image & it seems very accurate don't know how they do it but alamy needs something similar
  5. that's good about here because just about every other stock site makes you tick editorial or else they reject the image - as if you're supposed to know. And some sites don't accept images with intellectual property in which is also hard to judge.
  6. Lincoln is realy good & worth visiting, much bigger & the ppl. are better than boston which is pretty dead even before lockdown.
  7. eye of the tiger, Survivor. some lyrics It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight Risin' up to the challenge of our rival And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger Face to face, out in the heat Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry They stack the odds 'til we take to the street For the kill with the skill to survive Now I remember the 70s TV series Survivors about a pandemic
  8. Yes they refunded me because of gov advice not to travel to manila phil. but rebooked us for November with another airline for little extra cost and certainly not £200 for each FLIGHT. We could have rebooked with the same airline for no extra up to June 30 but it's now too soon with the rapidly worsening conditions. When the gov advises against travel to a certain country travel insurance can become invalid so agencies have to either refund you or re-book
  9. If people continue to congregate in outside places & ignore advice. the government will bring in more stringent itailan style measures to combat the virus. But will you still be allowed outside to take photos on your own because it will drive me mad staying in all the time esspecialy with warmer weather coming..
  10. I bought a cheaper (but still good) sony alpha nex with a flip touch screen not as visible as a dslr. but eagle eyed guards still notice me.
  11. If you are in a public place I understand that they have no right to stop you at least in the UK But the other day I tried to take a picture on a (deserted) Pescod shopping centre in Boston uk and was told by someone with a pescod shirt logo that I couldn't take photos without permission. Turns out it's privately owned even though it's open air & the public are allowed to roam freely. How the hell do you know where to get permission from as I'm not a professional, I just enter photo competitions on the net ie gurushots. and sell a few stock photos (but none on alamy yet) My camera is a pretty un-noticeable sony alpha nex This topic is one of the reasons why I didn't want a DSLR in the first place.
  12. Can you get away with taking photos in shops? I once took a photo with an old nokia phone in a well known chain & they asked me to delete it.
