  2. Am I wasting my time?

    Goes to show that spending too much time on this forum harms productivity!
  3. Slow month? 2018

    Lowly $2 RM license for me. Fellow starving artists can meet me at the breadline
  4. Am I wasting my time?

    Alamy forum is like Hotel California, "you can checkout anytime you like, but you can never leave!" He'll be back soon as we have a friendly wager on who will get to 10k images first.
  5. Planning travel/outdoor trips

    In my experience, I rarely plan and run into the more interesting situations. Sometimes it goes wrong though

    I just seen your portfolio. I think you just need to be a bit more patient and wait for more unique moments, including better lighting. I've taken your pub image below, by itself it's not so interesting but if you wait long enough I'm sure you'll get a character walking by - ideally someone local and eccentric! This will make the image 5x more commercial. Since this is an editorial anyway, including some people usually adds value to shots. On a little side note, the flag is cut off
  7. what type of photo might sell in 2018

    One of the most beautiful places in the world. I spent 3 weeks during the summer in Juan les Pins and visited lots around...most notably: Grasse, Eze, St. Paul de Vence. I trust you'll get sales soon, especially with your plan to upload many more. Need the patience of a monk on here!
  8. what type of photo might sell in 2018

    Native as in UK-based I presume? I think it's a little more difficult, sure since lots of the buyers are UK-based (I don't know the estimated % but perhaps others may have a better idea). In any case, there's lots of British expats in PACA, so I can see lots of your images being used in their media. Still lots of Non-UK buyers on here though, I tend to shoot a varied amount of subjects so I hope to appeal to a variety of clients. I've had a bit of a meteoric rise here with 5k images (adding about 2,500 in just the past year) so it's early days as the google bots do their work so let's see how I get on in a few months. Also, I admit that my keywording was mediocre until very recently which has been a factor in my relatively few sales. I really like this one:
  9. what type of photo might sell in 2018

    Shots related to the upcoming Brexit would do well I believe. As would themes surrounding immigration, austerity, security - 1984 stuff. Equal rights too, who knows. I shot this one the other day, it's a strong shot with a strong/trending theme and iconic place (Ipanema beach). I can see it being used in all sorts of media. I'm not an Alamy superstar like many on here though...:)
  10. Will it be worth it?

    I can't think of any benefit of being exclusive on here. It's like putting all your eggs in one basket. Although there's an exclusivity button in the control panel, it doesn't translate into higher royalties, I guess it's just something to notify the client.
  11. The Good Old Days

    I do, just surprised with the low amounts for this RM license. On the other hand, there's the other extreme of the bell-curve with those shocking yet rare $1k so it's fine.
  12. The Good Old Days

    I just had a gross $2.20 RM sale "novelty use". If this isn't a micro-sale I don't know what is...
