No offence to Keith and more power to him, but to my untutored eye this looks like just the sort of thing the rest of us have been told not to bother with.

Divide and rule (not you!) 

 

Local knowledge has enabled him to include another aspect into this surely? Environment, plastics, named campaigner. Added value.

But that's not what you've been told at all. You've been told to stop submitting images to Live News because your images weren't selling as News. There could be two photographers who shoot similar subjects - one who achieves regular sales, the other who achieves zero sales. Who would you accept images from?

 

  • Is the successful news photographer going to get a scoop every time? No
  • Is the successful photographer going to shoot 'soft news' subjects some of the time: Yes
  • Is the successful photographer going to sell News images every time? No

 

The anger of some contributors has been on Alamy for implementing a plan to improve the Alamy business. Do those same contributors question their own work and ask themselves why their News images didn't sell? What steps are they taking to improve their own news images?

I deduce that the reason is as you say, but in actual fact I haven't been told anything. I found out from the forum, not Alamy. The anger is for not telling us as much as for the policy.

I won't be taking any steps to improve my news images because Alamy won't accept them.

There's probably no point exchanging any more posts in which the same point is repeatedly made and missed.

To be fair, the image was submitted as live news in September 2018, so has now reverted to stock.

Yes, that does dilute my point a bit. But only a bit.

Hello Keith,

 

You make your points clearly,  come on over to the Live News thread and share your thoughts over there.

 

I appreciate you may see some some views on any statement which include the phrase "implementing a plan", that is the most common issue I have seen in this discussion. Most of the ire is directed at the implementation.

 

I have plans to improve my news images, forgive me for not sharing. Alamy's actions prompted this self examination. I just wish it could have been prompted in a manner I expected from Alamy.

 

James

Local knowledge....yes.

 

My wife

 

And this is the type of image that I try to seek out when doing 'soft' news. It fits the immediate need (warm sunny weather), plus has long term potential (paddleboarding / eco-campainging / environmental awareness / plastics in water systems, etc etc)
