No! There's no way to opt out of these rock bottom pricing schemes? I'm not ok with this.

Think some people mentioned it was possible to opt out of Novel Use.   But for me this is dilemma / part of larger strategy, how to manage your assets.  I have a photo that has > 200 downloads across several micro sites I am contributing to with Net > 100 USD to me.  Not a single download on Alamy.   That is "quantity over quality" approach;  just spread it out as wide as possible without restrictions.  On the other side is approach is "don't undervalue your work and wait if needs be several years but eventually worthwhile sale will come".     But this discussion is best left for different thread, think there is one about these NU sales going on right now.

I managed to persuade him to come and give us a presentation about his flying exploits for the Vulcan charity at Southend

 

And then you had one of your members buy your picture for a talk about his visit! I like your MO!

That was in 2008.The charity have a tonne of my images for use as they wish, as do many other similar groups from a time when it was all just for fun. I wish I knew what I was doing back then and had instead started building an agency port and hopefully selling so many years ago.

Royalty-free exclusive to Alamy $$ Calendar; Print run: 20,000; Start date: 1st Jan 2020; Duration: 1 year; Worldwide; Includes thumbnail use on the back page

 

Sunrise on one of my favorite beaches on Maui just 5 minutes down the road from our rental condo. I easily cloned out a distracting photoshoot taking place up against the distant hedge. 30 years ago I used to have these early morning beaches to myself but with pros shooting families for facebook page, or weddings, or commercial clothing shoots, or selfies, or the pesky stock photographers breeding like flies, no more.

 

Maybe Alan Beastall (see above) and are in the same calendar

A number of calendar sales today (wish all days were like today). It's probable that all the other calendar sales today were for the same company 'Calendar Club'. Check out their website and you might be able to find your images on a calendar. I did.

All my other sales in November, so far, have been window displays. This is a downtown NYC fire station. I guess this is a window display too. Or a display of windows.

RF, exclusive to Alamy, $$. 

 

Iconic timeless image with room for type. Shot on film late 1980s Pentax 6X7 400mm lens - 200mm equivalent. This image was part of a part time 3 year image collection maintenance scanning project that is still paying dividends. Collection maintenance, such as scanning film, updating keywords,  deleting weaker images,  and trying new things, is really important. Even if the photographer only started with digital.

I like it too John. Looking at an attractive person, an idea reenforced by the sign.

Thanks, Bill. I lurked for quite some time and took a series with different types of people in each image, eventually choosing two for Alamy. I had a feeling that this one had the best chance of licensing. This scene unfolded only three blocks from my front door.
