  1. Cut and paste. Please, substitute four more days with a few more weeks and January with March only: Don't worry guys, four more days and most of you, as usual, will post in "How was your January?" to having experienced the best month ever in terms of sales or number of sold images since the end of Second World War or so. 😉

  3. Benvenuto a bordo ed un grosso in bocca al lupo!
  4. I predict many photographer will keep going with complaining how bad and poor the current month is in terms of sales except then saying the next month how positive and rich the previous one was. That's an easy prediction. For 2021 but also for 2022, 2023...
  5. This morning DACS payment for 2019 popped up into my sales account as a welcome relief in this dramatic year. I remember last year, separately and just a few hours later in the same day, I received the DACS additional German payment for 2019 also. Not this year. At least, so far. Is the German payment already included under the voice DACS payment I had in my account this morning or it will arrive later? Anyone who received it already (the German DACS I mean). Stefano
  6. which is not absolutely true as I have often double digit sales on Shutterstock.
  7. Honestly, I don't see the point about complaining for such kind of sales. If you don't like them because you are justifiably suspicious, you can simply ask Alamy for getting PU sales removed from your future sales. I did it three years ago. I wish Alamy could do the same also for other suspicious sales as presentation/newsletter use.
  8. You mean report covid and similar tags in the description of the photo, like for example "People wearing surgical masks walking on Rambla street in Barcelona, Spain during covid 19 pandemic in 2019"?
  9. Thank you guys for your useful suggestions and ideas about my question. I thought it would be nice nice to have a talk here before proceeding with my decision. I am afraid pandemic will be next to us for some time in the near future, enough to be part of the photo stock market unfortunately.
  10. I have been shooting photos of iconic streets and places of Barcelona in the last couple of weeks and obviously you can't help seeing things that remind you of pandemic and covid-19 outbreak like famous places empty or people wearing surgical masks while walking in the street or seated at cafes. Sometimes they are in the foreground, sometimes distant but yet you can see these are images belonging to the new "normality". Now, I uploaded already a few pictures of this kind by reporting the new keywords like covid, emergency, pandemic, outbreak along with the usual ones. I have more similar
  11. Differently from Alamy, where they start from giving your pics away fro free ( see those clients who buy your pic for newsletter use and the day after they ask for refund so that they have your photo for free for any use they want. Something it happens frequently in my case), Shutterstock starts from 0,25USD but I got several double digit sales, including an interesting one for a calendar cover.
  12. How are doing your monthly zooms this month, guys? Mine are very low at single digit since several weeks unfortunately. Normally, for me this is a good period where I average also three-digit zooms for many days (sometimes even weeks) in a row. I guess this bad result is due to covid 19 outbreak but I wonder if you too are experiencing low zooms lately. Stefano
