Hi, 

 

I recently received a coffee table book as a gift that has many pictures from Alamy photographers in it.  The book is entitled "Off the Tourist Trail: 1,000 Unexpected Travel Alternatives" and published by Dorling Kindersley. 

 

Here's the link to Google Books: 

http://books.google.ca/books?id=RaR0yPKGAp4C&pg=PT62&source=gbs_selected_pages&cad=3#v=onepage&q&f=false

 

If you scroll to page 336 in the preview pages, you'll see the Alamy photographers listed there.  You'll want to increase the magnification: the font is tiny!

I don't get a preview at that link.

Odd  :(

 

Maybe the preview pages are only available for those in North America?

 

Alternative suggestion: try Googling "Off the Tourist Trail: 1,000 Unexpected Travel Alternatives Google Books selected pages".

One final attempt for Off the Tourist Trail: 1,000 Unexpected Travel Alternatives.

Try clicking on the "Look inside" button.  Font is small and preview quality seems poor, sorry about that.  :(   Also sorry in advance if the link doesn't work.  :(

Trying my best, Phil. Another shot at it:

 

http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=RaR0yPKGAp4C&printsec=frontcover&dq=Off+the+tourist+trail&hl=en&output=html_text&sa=X&ei=1RZYU9fNAuKYyAHNsYDgCw&ved=0CD8QuwUwAg

 

Try pasting link into browser perhaps? Page 336 for a long list of Alamy photographers.

Thanks for pointing this out Felix. I see many blurry Alamy Images listed in the credits. I can only make out that the back cover is Alamy Images: Blaine Harrington lll.

You're amazing Jill, thanks so much for copying all of the names for the board!  That deserves a green arrow. :)

And just a general thanks to all of those who contribute regularly to the monthly "have you found any Alamy images" threads.  I'm sure I'm not only speaking for myself when I say your time and efforts are much appreciated.  :)

I don't normally comment on the pictures that I find, but this is lovely. I've tried several times to get decent images of bluebells in a wood, it's very difficult to deal with the extreme contrast and relative sizes of trees and flowers.
