Question

Recently signed up to be a contributor and would like to learn more about the best way to plan a shoot

for a Picture Needs subject. 

Live in Boston, so am interested in learning about accessing historical and archival pictures, researching these events then

locating pictures that can be posted for specific Picture Needs subjects, such as the Old Boston Highway and the

Intolerable Acts Law: Boston Tea Party.

Look forward to getting responses from the community

You need to contact Alamy if you want to upload images via the Archive route. 

 

There is a link on the Alamy site. From your Dashboard select 'Additional Revenue Opportunities' and you will see the option for :

 

Reportage/archival or Live News image upload service

Wasn't the Old Boston Highway picture need a couple of years back? Shame there is no date of the original need nor an update given.

Also be aware some of those needs are actually just the client using the wrong keywords. However if I would have had images of the elevated C1 in Boston, I probably would have used the keywords old and historic so that a client may find them.

That said, there are not a lot of good images of that old highway. And when it's been searched once, it may well get searched for again. So good luck!
