Do You Snap Christmas and the Holidays?

Recommended Posts

They're colorful, yes. And they're everywhere. Hard to ignore, right? 

 

But do they sell? I just checked, and I've never had a sale on a Christmas image. Thanks, Santa.

I have a few, most have never been zoomed, (maybe one)  let alone sold. Yet I feel some must sell overall, mine just aren’t good enough.

Humbug! No . I do have a few decorated houses but I don't think they have even been zoomed let alone sold. Just came back from a supermarket where they were abusing my lug-holes with the worst versions of the old jingles.  They had a display of Famous Grouse 4.5 litre bottles @£70. Gross rather than grouse! Actually their 1 litre more manageable bottles @ £15 was a slightly better offer

I do take some but nary a one has ever sold.

 

UPDATE: Whoops! I'll take that back. One has licensed, but I'm going to be a Grinch and not share it. How's that for Christmas spirit?

Sold a photo of a house with Xmas decorations some (considerable) while ago.  Santa special steam trains do OK, particularly if snow involved - but I've arranged for that to be cancelled this year.

 

I don't upload family pics, but, looking at the papers, that kind of thing does sell well.

 

Anything sells, given time.  Why not shoot at Xmas?

This one has sold a couple of times to the same magazine

I have sold one other Christmas image, which, like John, I am going to be mean with and not share! :P

At least your Santa is fully clothed.B)

 

Good shot BTW. We all know that this is how Santa really travels these days -- i.e. he has to put up with the same indignities as everyone else.

I've had two sell here.  One RF & one RM.  The problem I have this time of year is that everywhere you go there are Christmas decorations up.  It kind of dates your images for a specific month, doesn't it?  I took an image the other day from an interesting point of view and upon review saw all the subtle Christmas wreaths etc on the building.  I'll have to go back after the first of the year.  :-)

Some good snaps there, folks -- but offbeat and more live news than stock, don't you think?

Lisa, you are so good at making images that "say" something. No wonder you sell regularly.
