Sorry NYCat I didn't enjoy taking this one today, 3 usages so far 🙃

If the Sun hadn't led with that image I would have eaten my face mask:

I care zilch what the old male Alamy forum anoraks have to say: It's degrading, it's sexist and it has absolutely no place in 2020 photo journalism or news photography. 

 

It's disgusting to see people being proud of getting print with these shitty shots. If you can't see what's wrong with them, then you cannot see what is wrong with the British newspaper landscape and has been for decades. Needless to say that many other countries have moved on from the women in bikini shots a long time ago, but Britain is stuck in this degrading excuse for 'news' images when all it really is, is to provide a cheap way for old bald blokes to get off on images of semi naked women. Well done, togs, hope you're proud of yourselves.  Pathetic.

 

I feel sorry for photographers who chase the mostly low value online (and occasional higher value print) sales to tabloids by sitting somewhere, preferably with a 600m, pointing their cams at women's arses and feeling that's totally fine because there is 'demand' for it and there has always been 'demand' for it and that it's just harmless fun. You're creating a demand, you are part of the problem. And you're proud of it. Again - I feel sorry for the lot of you.

 

The decline of the Brit newspaper industry is making even some of the former broadsheets desperate enough to fill their pages with the lowest common denominator - sex sells, as 'they' say. and 'they' are happy to continue down that line.  The only comforting thought is that most of those 'news' papers will be gone not too far in the future, a few are already simply propped up by ownership funds to serve as political platforms and little else. The rest will follow. You may need to find other things to snap on the beach then. 

 

I will not re-visit this threat.

Thank you imageplotter - other than the 'old and bald' - that needed to be said, especially when the people involved don't know they're being photographed.  There are other ways of illustrating the weather, beach etc.  We all know why these are used and that's why I agree they're not on, and why even though I don't usually like being confrontational in a forum, I feel obliged to say so

Since this is a big subject (and rather more nuanced, I'd contend, than a 'pro' or 'anti' stance), perhaps it could be a new topic in the 'Let's talk about pix' section?

This old male Alamy forum 'anorak' totally agrees with you.

 

And I share your opinion of the truly disgusting state of the tabloid press that we have in Britain - also your opinion of  those who support such 'newspapers'. 

 

Maybe you should attack those people rather than tar everybody else with the same brush because of their age and gender?

Agreed. I'd rather this thread doesn't get shut down. Which based on recent experience, is in danger of happening! PLEASE POST A NEW THREAD FOR COMMENTING ON SUCH A CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC NOT RELEVANT TO THIS THREAD.

I didn't quite get the "anorak" since I thought it was a jacket... but I found this... rather strong but I get your point.. 

 

Anorak" /ˈænəræk/ is a British slang term which refers to a person who has a very strong interest, perhaps obsessive, in niche subjects. This interest may be unacknowledged or not understood by the general public.

 

I was mostly kidding around but I have to admit that I cringe at those photos before I start wondering if the only men in the UK are the funny-looking ones. I guess we should be careful not to get carried away with this but I bet most of the guys here are pretty darn good in their attitudes towards women. Just don't start submitting those pics to the Challenge!!!!😁

The issue that we have is that Alamy accepts and distributes these images as part of the process that gets them printed. 

 

Each part of the chain has to take responsibility for the end result.

 

Alamy does not accept 'glamour' ( whatever that means) as stock -  but shots of women wearing bikinis or topless on a beach unaware that their photo is going to be used for profit seems even more sleazy and creepy to me. At least with 'glamour' the models know what the game is and have a choice over what is happening.

Valid point made - let's not derail - keep this on topic.

 

As suggested above, if you'd like to discuss the topic of image type for tabloids and attitudes towards it a thread in "Lets talk about pics" would be the place.

 

Thanks all

Favour request : can somebody with financial Times sub to a screen grab of the article head "Dalston to Twickenham"?

I know an image of mine is used as primary through Google but can't see the article. 

Doesn't happen much for me, so was kind of excited 😊 it's cyclist going through Richmond Park 

Sorry : "Dalston is out Twickenham is in"

I got it from the site and I don't have a sub. I can't get any more of the page without a banner cutting the pic in half though.
