  1. Hi Scott If you have a large enough portfolio, given time, you will definitely have sales for pennies and you will feel insulted. But you will also get sales for $100+ which whilst not as much as you may hope or expect, do mitigate the penny sales. I see this even in my small portfolio and it is mirrored by other contributors with much larger ports. With a large portfolio of high quality images, you should see reasonable returns after a while. I would say that there is no way of knowing what constitutes a "poor" image or a "strong" image when it comes to sto
  2. In a similar vein, male anti-vaxxers reckon that their semen will be a type of Bitcoin currency in the not-too-distant future. Any actual science refuting the basis of this will be part of the big conspiracy, of course. What a time to be alive.
  3. My name isn't that common but I know of at least two other photographers with exactly the same name, one of whom is an award-winning international documentary photographer. It's him I feel sorry for, if anyone does a name-based search...
  4. Low $$$ for this again. A book cover this time. It has also been used as a book lining inside a hardback. Why did I pay thousands to travel and trek up mountains through jungle to snap mountain gorillas when I could have just concentrated on peeling wallpaper in my bedroom?
  5. This, and perhaps having to deal with the consequences of contributors jumping ship causing database wobbliness? There must be an awful lot of zooms and unreported sales associated with cancelled accounts...
  6. Not that this helps you but mine came through as normal i.e. around the 9th of the month. It does seem as though Alamy are having an awful lot of IT problems of late.
  7. Two sales dropped in this morning: A low $$ Worldwide editorial book and ebook and a low $$$ Worldwide editorial single company (Media, Design and Publishing) The hovering tern sold in June too.
  8. Are you using fewer keyboard keys in protest at the commission reduction?
  9. $66 (IIRC) to $58 for me but no correction as yet (and no emails to or from Alamy).
  10. One wonders what she'd do (or her record company would do) if a photo agency used one of her tracks without permission as backing music for an Insta post.
  11. Alamy don't like these threads Our comments they do bite 'em So the thread is locked And its spawn is locked And so ad infinitum
  12. 90% of last year's total sales and 149% of last year's revenue. What do I win?
  13. So as I've said all along, cock-up or conspiracy. Either way, it doesn't bode well.
  14. My lowest sale ever. A few ¢ for this Defassa Waterbuck in Uganda: Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial, Editorial website, social media and app, any size, single placement and design, worldwide, life of post rights Media: Website, app and social media 69 MB 5996 x 4002 pixels 2 MB compressed Start: 18 June 2021 Duration: Unlimited
  15. My local paper crowdsources its photography under the guise of a "Readers' Photography Club". Lots of free "good enough" quality photos with which they fill their pages.
