First uploads to Alamy 20 years ago? in Let's talk about pics Posted September 13, 2020 ASMP? (Sorry, I really should know more about this industry I partake in.) I do wish I'd cottoned on to what was happening back in the noughties, but I didn't get my first DSLR until 2007 and wasted a couple of years trickling shots onto iStock and feeling ridiculously grateful if I sold one for 10 cents. It took a much more experienced friend to point out the error of my ways. In my time on Alamy I have one $350 sale as the high water mark. I remember it fondly and know I will never see its like again.
