I just made a great sale via Alamy today - a full size (A4) front cover shot! I'd really love to see this in use but am dependent on someone happening to come across it when published. Given that I don't know name of publication, that won't be easy!

' . substr('//farm2.static.flickr.com/1294/1214761179_1142baf2a7_o.jpg', strrpos('//farm2.static.flickr.com/1294/1214761179_1142baf2a7_o.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Usage is for full size front cover of what sounds like a travel brochure for the cruise industry to be sent out via direct mail. Dates of use are September to December this year.

Usage is for North America only so please can any Americans and Canadians keep an eye out for this image on the front cover of any likely travel brochure and if you find it, grab it and I'll pay postage and packing costs, of course!

I'm really excited.

BTW the sale price was over $1k US dollars!

Congratulations, I will definitely keep an eye out.

Can I ask what type of license you had set for this? I was going through the options last night and the license decision is just as complicated as which stock agency to go with.

Would you like a copy sent to you?
08/23/2007 04:17:03 PM · #4
I would LOVE a copy to be sent to me - I know the chances of anyone spotting it are small and Alamy has a very firm policy of not providing photographers with customer details - precisely so they don't bother the customers for portfolio copies/ tearsheets.

So, yes, if anyone spots/ finds this I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE a copy!

I have RM set for all my images on sale at Alamy.

Do you mind if I print off a little copy to take to the travel agent's in the mall where I work? I'd ask them to stick it up in their staff area and keep an eye out for it; I'm sure they would :)

Of course not - but I've only posted a tiny thumbnail just to ensure no accusations of double usage - as the sale was Rights Managed - so hope you can print something usable. I know it'll be small.

Can you include a copyright Kavita Favelle notice just underneath on the same page, just to play it safe?

And thank you SO much for doing that, that's a really generous offer.

A friend on another forum happened to receive a travel brochure for a company she's travelled with previously - seems they've expanded into Africa. My photo is on the front cover of the brochure!
She's going to be posting me the hard copy but has sent me a scan of the cover in the meantime:

that's cool - congrats!

Congrats. It's such a great feeling when this happens.
10/02/2007 09:38:00 PM · #13
That is just so awesomely exciting :D
(I didn't see any Viking brochures at our agent's, maybe that's why I didn't hear from them.)

Wonderful !
10/03/2007 04:49:39 AM · #15
Thank you!
Apparently they have two, a 49 page introductory one (which has my image) and a full length 80+ page one (which has a different cover).
10/03/2007 12:14:13 PM · #16
congrats :) It is nice to see your photos in action!
10/03/2007 12:22:41 PM · #17
congratulations Kavey...

quick question - what inspired you to put the image in Alamy in b&w?

all the best

I don't tend to do that much but this image really stood out best in b/w as it allowed me to boost contrast more without quality loss. In colour that simply didn't work as well.
10/03/2007 02:11:29 PM · #19
Congrats, that's amazing! :D
10/03/2007 03:45:00 PM · #20
Wow Kavey! That's gotta be so fun to see your photo on the front cover!

I get Viking's stuff but have not seen this one as yet. I'll watch for it now.
10/03/2007 03:58:26 PM · #21
Kavey - congratulations on your fine image and the very nice sale. On the good news scale, I'd probably rate this one a grand five stars.
10/03/2007 04:04:35 PM · #22
Wow congrats! This is an excellent photo!
