  1. I wanted to ask if anyone has experience of how long certain outlets take to report usage. The Guardian is the one I am particularly interested in. Are some outlets much slower than others? Also, do photos used to link or lead readers to an article but which are not in the article itself count as a sale? Regards Liam
  2. Hi I’ve been wrestling with this editorial/commercial question for some time and wonder if anyone here can clarify. I’m aware this may show some fundamental mis-understandings of editorial/commercial licensing on my part – but I’ve asked around and done my googling, and still don’t feel I know the answer… Say, for example, a commercial company is producing a brochure that is being distributed for free / is for educational or public information purposes only. Could they use ‘editorial only’ images within that particular brochure, or – even though the brochure itself is not commercial (in fact is being produced at cost to the company), as the company is commercial by nature – would they still need a commercial license for images, and couldn’t use editorial licensing/ ‘editorial only’ images? Or is it that, even though the brochure is being distributed free, it could still be argued, is still in some ways promotion for a commercial company… so images shouldn’t be ‘editorial only’ and a commercial license would be needed? Or… (bear with me!) have I understood it completely wrong… and it’s nothing to do with whether the company using the image is itself a profit-making company, but is solely down to the particular context of how an image is being used? EG, an article within their brochure about ‘benches’ could feature an ‘editorial only’ generic picture of a random bench – but if the article was about a particular bench – and required a picture of that one particular, exact bench – then the image no longer becomes editorial, and a commercial license would have to be bought? Thanks in advance! And over to you…
  3. I really am intrigued with the Forum - photos found in June 2018 etc ... I find it a fascinating feed. Years ago I would deliver my roll of film to the picture desk hopefully negotiate a fee and then go buy the paper in the morning ! As a newbie to Forum is anyone kindly able to explain how photographers can search the internet for possible usage and any tips to mark ones photos when editing ? Really appreciated. Matt / PennPix
  4. Hey all, Out of curiosity, has anybody here come across situations when their model-released images were used in situations that may potentially cause the models potential embarrassment (in the best case scenario)? I've recently come across two of my pics which were licensed, not on here, which perhaps a model could take offence and wrote about it on my blog I realise that Alamy's clients are predominately editorial so would probably not apply, but for those that shoot commercial model-released, is it something that potentially worries you and do you notify the client that there's a small risk that the images may be used for "sensitive usage"? Is the small risk enough for some on here avoid commercial model-released altogether? I looked into Alamy's contributor contract and the wording is relatively wide: Unfortunately there's no such definition of what would be "defamatory" within the agreement. Best regards Alex
  5. ..again, i'm sorry! I apologise for debating this again and again but i was looking at your ports, people who confirm daily in "slow month" or "post your positive results" or "which is your <month>---something" they're good sellers. For the following categories i've noticed some of you use RM, some RF (maybe Editorial) and i really couldn't find a reason to stay relaxed on that or to say to my mind "now i' see the light!!!" - Food - Landscapes without people or brands - Wildlife / Animals - Not branded objects How could you explain the RM vs RF usage then? Technically and legally speaking, each of the above category pictures could go in the RF market, but.... many uses RM (as i do). Which are your thoughts? Thanks in advance to share these.
  6. Hi guys, I had a weekly magazine from interested to license on of my photo, the photo isnt on Alamy or any other Licensing sites. As I haven't never done it myself before, wondering how do I go about setting price, contracts etc. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks www.muradrm.com
  7. Good news folks: I just had an email from "Alamy Infringements" checking on a possible illegal image use of a photo which is a good multiple seller. I confirmed it was only on Alamy with no direct licenses. This is the first email I've had of this type but maybe more will follow? Kathy
  8. Does anyone use keywords that suggest possible uses, as well as just content? A search for 'book cover' brings up a lot of images of existing books, of course, but also some images suitable for that use. Likewise for 'greetings card'. Does anyone have any evidence that this helps customers? Has anyone had any sales traceable to similar searches?
  9. Hey there, As a relatively new member I have struggled to build my portfolio based on the fact that most of the images I like to take or have the opportunity to take would probably require a model/property release. I have noticed over the last couple of days that every person I've looked at pictures of (about 10 people ) doesn't seem to have model/property release for most of the work that is on here. So how does anybody sell anything? I reckon I could increase my contribution by a bucket load if I didn't need releases, however, I was always told that I needed it for everything that wasn't owned by me or in the public domain. I went through about 20 pages yesterday of someones portfolio and not one picture had a model/property release and it was mostly pictures of town centres, parks, car shows, or candid moments out and about. Some were even models in a studio. So I scratched my head for a while, then created this thread. How do these images sell? Cheers, Paul Glasgow
