Last night around 30 or 40 Alamy photography contributors met James West, the extraordinarily engaging CEO of Alamy at their DUMBO office, an area of Brooklyn a short subway ride away from Manhattan.
He and several employees shared useful and interesting information about Alamy's past, present, and plans for future. Of course, nothing was off-the-record, though some plans were just alluded to, for reasons of commonsense business timing. And at least one fellow contributor I chatted with has a port not much larger than mine. (BTW, as far as I recall, this is the first I've happened to post about Alamy here since I knew about the meeting.)
I respect Alamy even more than before, and it looks like it will be first stock agency I do specific blog post about, which is one more agency than I expected. Once it's up, I'll post link to it.
