Hi, we have a major construction site of a bridge in my city, the organization that manages the site have an internet site with some photos (not very beautiful) and webcams to follow the evolution of the site live . My question is: I took dozens of photos of days, during the golden hour and long exposure (night) of the construction site. I would like to present my portfolio (pictures of the construction site) to this organization ... what would be the best way? Can I, for example, send an Alamy link, by email, so that they can only see my photos of this construction site? Tell them that I have all the original files, RAW includes? I think it's a great opportunity and the worst thing would be to have no answer ...

What do you think and above all, what would you do? thank you!!!!!!!

If you're wanting to sell directly, why not send watermarked small images directly?
If you want to sell via Alamy, you could make a lightbox and email them that.
I think it would be morally dodgy to make an Alamy lightbox and use that to sell directly, but ymmv.

I thought about it too. After reading your comments, I instead opted to write them an email to offer my photos and if they are interested, how they would like to review my batch of photos ... for a possible transaction.

thanks!

If you don't have anywhere you can host a slideshow of your images for them to review, you can upload them to Google drive (watermarked if you like) and turn on sharing where only those with the link can view the images.

Unless you have more than 15GB of images, it's a clean - no frills, but perfectly functional - online slideshow. Images can be downloaded, so make them small if you're concerned about unauthorized use.

go into photoshop and make a contact sheet 4 across by 5 down make sure it is 72dpi save as jpeg with an 8 setting, send them that via email. They won't be able to use anything without purchasing the images as the resolution will be so low.
