  1. First $$$ this month, but lower end, leaving my 40% a tad under mid $$. Country: WorldwideUsage: Corporate client. Marketing Package Use. Internal and external marketing communications. Excludes advertising. Repeat use within the terms of the license.Industry sector: Non Profit - otherStart: 18 March 2019End: 18 March 2029
  2. An update on this licence. Sale refunded and resold at a price increase of 260%. Duration now unlimited. Thanks Alamy, for getting me a few more $$.
  3. Personal use sale. Zoomed 12 March, licenced 15 March. Just wondering how someone licencing for personal use would be a registered buyer???? Just $...half the usual fee. On the plus side, the 8th licence of this image by Alamy, and the 12th overall.
  4. Another tiny underwater critter which is not often seen by divers as so small. It's a coral hermit crab, living in a hole in a hard coral. Size of hole around 8 miilimeters. Take with 100mm macro + Subsee +5 external diopter.
  5. Another low value sale, my 40% just scrapes into $$. Very disappointing. Country: WorldwideUsage: Single company - multiple use editorial only Editorial digital use. Repeat use permittedIndustry sector: Media, design & publishingStart: 11 March 2019End: 11 March 2029

  8. Resurrecting this thread! I had a refund today, of a sale from 13 December. The sale cleared late January and proceeds included in my February payout. It was a $$$ sale, so it hurts! I really don't think refunds after such a long time should be given.
  9. About 10 years John. But please realise that the early years only had a few images. I think I added about 50 the first 18 months or so, and trickled a few on from time to time since then. If I counted my share of $$ from all of "those" sites, that have the same images, it's a tad under $27,000. Plus they often get licenced on Alamy as well, I've not counted that income of course.
  10. Always nice to find the tiny little things on a dive. A 1cm long shrimp which lives on a black coral sea whip.
  11. I agree Tom. I have 338 images with "that" agency, just adding a few each year. My earnings (my share, not the gross) is $10, 916.81 as of today. Not a bad return on so few images.
  12. Thank you Paulette, what a lovely comment from you. Being underwater is my life, and I care deeply about everything that lives in the marine world. I've been diving since 1979 - so into my 40th year, and I still feel so privileged to be able to share the ocean with it's inhabitants. I love to photograph the little things, the secretive things that many divers don't see, or don't even know exist. This little crab, for example, lives tucked away inside the gut of one species of sea cucumber, and it takes a special technique to get it out.
  13. Dreadful, one of my worst months for a very long time. 3 licences for $215.46. The two largest were distributor sales. CTR fallen down a dark deep hole. Largest sale fee (my share) was on one of "those" sites and was over 50% more than the best I got from Alamy.
  14. Yes Martin, 100% real. Lots of shrimps and also fish act as cleaners. They happily go into ever orifice to do their job. Here's a couple of different ones for you.
