General Photography Discussion / Image use without license
« on: August 03, 2017, 22:40 »
Hey everyone, looking to get some advice on something.

A friend of mine recently discovered an image of his was used by a crown corporation on their website, he emailed them and they have responded by removing the image offering to pay his regular fee to license the image, however he doesn't usually sell his images online anywhere.

What do you think would be a reasonable settlement for image use?

Woke up to it this morning, and it's listed as single / other. This means that the buyer paid around $200 for it. Is this a mistake?

MicrostockSubmitter / Alamy Uploads

Does anyone know how long it usually takes for images uploaded to Alamy through StockSubmitter to show in your unfinished files on the site?

Uploaded some around 4 hours ago and they havent showed up yet, first time I have tried using stock submitter

Alamy.com / Alamy Licensing
« on: July 28, 2016, 10:12 »
Hey Everyone, I have a question about licensing on Alamy, I am seeing a lot of RM licenses for commercial imagery that has logos / trademarks etc, with options to license these images for calendars , merchandise etc. If you do a search on any popular brand (Ferrari Lamborghini etc.) then you'll see what i mean.

Can someone shed some light please as I thought that trademarks / logos / brands etc. were protected by copyright law and could only be sold as editorial. Is it because Alamy assumes no risk for content and contributors are taking a risk by selling these images commercially, or do the terms of an RM license differ from the terms of an RF license where logos and trademarks are concerned


Newbie Discussion / How to sort portfolio for Micro / Macro
« on: June 30, 2016, 10:25 »
Hi everyone,

I'm just about to enter the world of multi agency and am wondering about this, how do you split and sort your portfolio between micro / macro stock and fine art for prints. Do you upload everything to all types of sites, or do you upload everything to micro and then make a judgement on what you think is then suitable for macro / print...

Thanks for your input

Shutterstock.com / Shutterstock initial Submission process
« on: June 14, 2016, 06:53 »
I am at the initial stage of submission, where I have to have 1 out of 10 images accepted to become a contributor but I have a question... assuming I get one accepted out of 10 does that image then go on sale or do I need to reupload and submit... I'm asking because I am still under exclusivity with DT until July 14th, but I want to start uploading my port to SS and others before them so they are ready to go live, or at least go to review on 14th


Hey Everyone, not sure how I didn't discover this site sooner, I'm always mooching around the interwebs researching photography related stuff.

Anyways, I've been an exclusive contributor with DT since Oct 2014 and have been making slow but satisfactory progress until they changed their search results to best selling last month. Since then my sales have pretty much died off and so today I took the jump and sent them my 30 days notice. So I'm looking for any tips or advice on where to go now, I know there are multiple agencies out there but some suggestions would be very welcome. I am a part time contributor with a very small portfolio that I'm working on growing. Which agencies would you recommend I start out with and what are your experiences with them
