  1. Today
  2. You've got some nice imagery, but I have a feeling that you have been photographing with microstock agencies in mind. You will need to add more editorial images for Alamy as it is primarily an editorial agency. It takes a longer time to start getting sales here than on the micros. Also, as others have mentioned, you will have to add a lot more images before seeing regular sales. Good luck.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Thanks, MizBrown. My bundle did include the 55-210 and I am using it almost entirely, following the suggestions by other forum users, and to learn what kinds of photos I can get with it as I explore my new equipment.

  6. If you can find a good used copy, the Sony/Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 is one of the best lenses for the a6000. It's the equivalent of a 35mm lens on full frame and can do quite nice close focusing. Not cheap -- and I bought my new copy in Managua, Nicaragua, which made it seriously not cheap (15% IVA tax, plus the importer paid and passed on the import duty). I'll probably buy another a^### body when the one I have wears out just because of that lens (and the small size of the camera for street photography). If your bundle includes the 55-210 lens, that also does rather close focusing.
  7. It's like an Agatha Christie story where every one is gathered together in the old house and they have to work out what they have in common....
  8. Me too... I had an email 19hrs ago. Last submission was April 19, all images still in QC. Andre
  9. Just spotted one of mine on the Times online (T54FM6) - does anyone know if it appeared in today's (22nd) print edition? https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/register/the-quiet-phase-of-the-solar-cycle-gcgpg8v7z
  10. Have the same issue had the email in the early hours but the the AIM still shows them all in QC
  11. Yes, maybe it was just four days late, rather than early.
  12. Had one yesterday. Last submission was April 10, finalized long ago.

  14. I had an email from Alamy this morning telling me my images had passed QC. They haven't. Just me?
  15. I'm giving instagram a try and here's my new account. Still learning how to use it https://www.instagram.com/mjcreativeimagery/
  16. Michael, I recently bought the newest MacBook Air 13". It's great but it is expensive. Unfortunately, I am the last person to give anyone specific tech advice.

  18. I'd suggest getting closer to people in shots of people doing things (see the various shots that sold). Also, you have a lot to photograph in Buenos Aires. Also, it can be useful to photograph plants and animals (including fish and invertebrates) from Argentina that others may have less chance of photographing.

  20. This should be required reading for every Alamy photographer. Lots of photography philosophy, look at his images, read his story carefully. We would all like to do this, and over the years Lanting has consistently set the standard. https://www.dpreview.com/interviews/3430815255/earth-day-2019-frans-lanting-photographer-interview
  21. Sorry I have no experience with Cambo PCH gearhead but that won't stop me from sharing my opinion... 🤣 If you are looking for a specialized geared head for architecture work I can highly recommend the Arca-Swiss C1 Cube Geared Head with the Arca-Type Flip-Lock Quick Release. Down side is it does not do verticals very easily, you need and L-plate for your camera for easy verticals, it is slow but VERY precise. Another plus is it is very compact, probably not the best do it all geared head but for getting the camera level and plum it's the best... IMHO Hope this helps,
  22. I don't know if it will give my website traffic (and dare I say sales) a boost, but I just created this. Happy to follow others who follow me. https://www.instagram.com/andrewmichaelphoto/ Andy
