So I just snooped around PA Media's website (I am assuming this is the same company) and tried their pricing tool to get a sense of how much they are currently asking for images that I would typically find on Alamy. My search term was "travel". You can try it here:

https://paimages.co.uk/search-results/fluid/?q=travel&category=A,S,E&fields_0=all&fields_1=all&imagesonly=1&orientation=both&words_0=all&words_1=all

The tool returns very good (high) prices. Of course what the negotiated price would be is another matter. Your thoughts?

You will get the same sort of high prices using the Alamy calculator. The same with Getty though nobody ever, ever buys at those prices on Getty - it's all through Premium Access.

Not quite 'all', but certainly 'far too many'.

I have occasionally had sales at rack rate there, but note 'occasionally'.

At least I didn't see subscription pricing.  That would worry me.  Those images look quite dull and lifeless, maybe on purpose.

Hmmm, a lot of near identical photos. E.g. of a yellow bobsleigh. Looks like the tog did no culling, even put up bracketed files.

I thought I'd see if they could use my wildlife photos. Yep. I searched for 'elephant' and very few elephants appeared. The first image is a jaguar and some of the images of people don't seem to relate to elephants at all. Their keywording may be even worse than Alamy's.
