Popular Post MarkK Posted April 23, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted April 23, 2022 (edited) Today I received the following request from Alamy and will also include the response: Mark I hope you are well! We’ve been contacted by one of our distributors in France. They have a client who would like to use your image: Image ID: J3DYEM Contributor ref Lebanese Bread Usage: editorial use It doesn’t look like you are set up for our distribution scheme for that territory, so they have asked if you could allow them to make this one off sale? We look forward to hearing from you. Thanks Sabine response: Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately due to the consistently poor sale prices I do not give you permission to sell the photo to the distributor unless my take is over $xxx US. It is worth the price and no less. There is a reason I am not part of the distribution schemes. We as photographers have been more than been taken advantage of in terms of recent pricing. I travel the world and spend a lot of money to create one-off photos. If your distributor really wants it they will need to pay the price as stated.If the photo is sold to them in any roundabout way for less than the price stated I believe that goes against the contract.Again, emphatically no you may not sell it to the distributor unless they are willing to pay $xxxUS after your and their commission. In fact, why is it even available for the distributor to see when I have been opted out for years of all distribution due to the on-going sales price problems?Thank you,Mark Edited April 24, 2022 by MarkK Took out part of my name and deleted price I am asking 1 5 8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
