  1. I started photography again in 2003, mostly in a photoclub context. My "eye" hasn't changed since. My view of the world and how I compose is innate. But what I shoot has expanded. I can see the arty shot, as well as the stock shot. I'll take both if I have the chance. I shoot what interests or excites me. If it does that for me, I think it has stock potential.
  2. Good question. It doesn't matter. For me, 2019 income was my lowest since 2007 when I had about 1000 images up. Even then I made 30% more than last year. Adding 11,000 images hasn't made much of an impact.
  3. Lackluster: 14 sales for $479 ($186 net). The faster I go the behinder I get.
  4. Well, there's a wrap for another year. Same # of images sold as last year (~200) for 25% less income. December wasn't too hot either - 14 sales for $479 gross ($186 net). Still better than any of my two other MS efforts.
  5. I feel your pain. Number of sales for me is OK - more than 200 this year. The highest since a bumper crop back in 2012. But revenue is the lowest since I started. Only 2006 was lower when I just had a few images up.
  6. Maybe try to google search or tineye a few images of yourself, see what comes up. If your international criminal nemesis has a beard, I'm afraid it's going to have to go 😃
  7. Wow. Why not spread those i-images around to the other sites?
  8. A normal month: 16 sales for $787 gross (only $297 net). Better than my performance at stutterS: $172, but adoubtS is coming along at $62.
  9. That's odd Klinger. I get 2891 images for BHZ. I use 120/page and find my top psuedo still on page 3. My new images go into a psuedo on page 10, and my scrapings go into a third psuedo on page 12.
  10. Wow - a seemingly endless list of images from my home town. Now I'm depressed that I only sold one.
  11. Mine has: NU Editorial website and app multiple use, in perpetuity
  12. Don't know whether to laugh or cry. My first sale this month for 0.49 net, and RM too.
  13. Mine are rock solid too. The search algo seems very stable now.
  14. Another poor month for me. 16 sales for $412 gross, $160 net. This month that was a tie with my other endeavour - $163 net. But with the $21 for DACS TV, Alamy came out ahead.
  15. Cheers. Cheers. Inquiring minds want to know how you did that. The URL seems to long to paste in the "insert image from URL"
  16. Here is my pre-mink pond. The GB Heron I don't worry about - never got one fish since the sides of my pond a vertical and deep. They do try throwing up on the water, but no luck. https://www.alamy.com/great-blue-heron-invading-a-decorative-fish-pond-at-the-front-of-a-image60164662.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=5B1BE1EB-0BCA-4243-AE37-017A8CCD241D&p=69725&n=0&orientation=0&pn=1&searchtype=0&IsFromSearch=1&srch=foo%3dbar%26st%3d0%26pn%3d1%26ps%3d100%26sortby%3d3%26resultview%3dsortbyRelevant%26npgs%3d0%26qt%3dheron%20pond%20house%26qt_raw%3dheron%20pond%20house%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26ot%3d0%26creative%3d%26ag%3d0%26hc%3d0%26pc%3d%26blackwhite%3d%26cutout%3d%26tbar%3d1%26et%3d0x000000000000000000000%26vp%3d0%26loc%3d0%26imgt%3d0%26dtfr%3d%26dtto%3d%26size%3d0xFF%26archive%3d1%26groupid%3d%26pseudoid%3d%26a%3d%26cdid%3d%26cdsrt%3d%26name%3d%26qn%3d%26apalib%3d%26apalic%3d%26lightbox%3d%26gname%3d%26gtype%3d%26xstx%3d0%26simid%3d%26saveQry%3d%26editorial%3d1%26nu%3d%26t%3d%26edoptin%3d%26customgeoip%3dCA%26cap%3d1%26cbstore%3d1%26vd%3d1%26lb%3d%26fi%3d2%26edrf%3d%26ispremium%3d1%26flip%3d0%26pl%3d DDTMHX Clearly, I've forgotten how to post an Alamy picture here.
  17. You're right. Too big for a mink. Looks like an otter. For us it would be a North American River otter. That must be a Eurasian otter.
  18. Are you sure it was a river otter and not a mink? I had one find the pond in my front yard (in Toronto) and he cleaned out the 8, two-foot koi I had in there. They will keep coming back until all the fish are dead. It was heartbreaking to see them chewed up like that. Many died over some months. I eventually trapped him.
  19. Go to www.gov.uk and search for double taxation treaty with Canada. There is a PDF form for relief at source and to claim reimbursement. You'll need to fill out both parts.
  20. Svetlana, I think spacecadet is saying that if you want to claim for yourself, you need to opt OUT of Alamy doing it for you.
  21. John - the Queen doesn't need the tip. Keep your 20% and fill out the forms. I did and have not had any withholding tax since.
  22. My self-claimed DACS this year was $348 CAD - a little more than last year. The Other (TV) amount this year was about $27 CAD, also a bit more than last year.
  23. You beat me Andy. Since January, I've seen monthly zooms of 43 to 82, with an average of 57.
  24. Am I the only one who has noticed the online uploader behaving strangely? The last few uploads of mine have more images listed than I uploaded. On careful inspection, some of my images are duplicated, with a space and three random numbers prefixing my file name, as well as images with my correct file names. After a lot of cogitation, the system deletes the files with my correct file names. I'm hoping Alamy are fixing this.
  25. Hey, no need to red arrow the messenger. That was tongue in cheek 😋
