Can we please have a live news forum, and if it was private even better.

Great call, although I don't see the benefit of it being private?

I'd rather we talk amongst fellow live news photographers about fees, issues we face, etc. in private

Not my red arrow!

 

Just my as usual random thoughts.

 

Against a private forum.

  • I think the forum is a place for sharing and improving the value of contributions, limiting access goes against this.
  • Who would you admit? Press card holders? Those with ready Access to Live news?  This would exclude a few ex photo jounalists who have something to offer.
  • What about the numerous foreign agencies? How would they feel?

 

For a private forum.

  • The way some news pictures are used or mis used  means the conversation can go from zero to political very quickly. If restricting access means less work for ALAMY to police  the forum then maybe yes. No problems with robust discussion but it can get silly quickly.

 

All the very  best to all of you!

You could start your own FB group. There's an Alamy one already.

But a private group run by Alamy, no. If you can't share it, I don't think it belongs here.
