Hi fellow togs! I'm new to Alamy but not entirely new to shooting for stock. I'm based in London, UK. I've done a bit over the years with other agencies but now due to a change of lifestyle I'm keen to give it a proper go. I must say that the contributors on here are amazingly helpful with their advice. Once I have some expertise worth sharing, I will certainly do so! For now I have a question: How important is the shooting date in searches? eg if I have some great shots of a walrus community from the Arctic Circle shot two years ago, and upload them, do they then get put into the library alongside other material from two years ago, or do they appear as current? As a supplementary question, how far down the list of search results do clients go? Obviously it varies, but is there any point having images from eg two years ago because no client would look that far back? or does none of that matter?
These sale details have me scratching my head: Country: Germany Usage: Editorial Media: Magazine - print, digital and electronic Print run: up to 10,000 Placement: Inside Image Size: 1/2 page Start: 01 September 2015 End: 01 September 2020 Duration: 1 month Can anyone try to explain why Start and End dates of 5 years becomes a duration of 1 month? This explanation from MS makes even less sense: "Customers we actively go after, contact us about specific needs or key customers with large spends and image requirements may negotiate on price; which always starts with our shop front pricing. It’s in our interest too to get the best price and our sales team works extremely hard in negotiating deals. Some of these customers need to be confident they’re covered to use images for their particular area and we may invoice with the highest print run and largest page size as we’re working with large orders. Actual use is nearly always at a much smaller size and lower print run." The only thing I can think of is that they want to license for 30 days within a period of 5 years which seems strange. Rgds, Richard.
