  1. I've been travelling, and now, reading this thread, I have tears in my eyes. What a sad loss. My deepest condolences to family and friends.
  2. My worst month in goodness knows how many years. 6 sales for a piddling $89.51. And 2 of the highest were distributors. Woeful prices for some direct licences. Very discouraging.

  6. I'll start off for this month. August was a bit better than the past 2 months, 5 licences, gross $398.08. One higher than mid $$$ and two high $$. One was a small distributor sale and the two larger sales were exclusive. CTR going well @ 1.16.
  7. Yes, as per Spacecadet above, this is a cuttlefish. There are lots of different types and sizes. In Australia, we also get the largest cuttlefish, Sepia Apama.

  10. Love finding the little things underwater. Sea snail crawling on sand, about 12mm shell length. It's always a challenge to capture the animal's eye. A very trusting shrimp, commensal on crinoids. and always the same colour as the host.
  11. Not quite mid $$, non exclusive. 3rd licence of this image by Alamy, and 4th licence overall. An old slide scan Country: WorldwideUsage: Single company - multiple use editorial onlyIndustry sector: Media, design & publishingStart: 15 August 2019End: 15 August 2069

  13. Paypal notification of funds received was waiting morning of 8th here in Australia.
  14. Ha, same here Wim, this is not my photo, but I have the same subject on Alamy, keywords include my name. Guess this photographer just copied the lot! https://www.shutterstock.com/ru/image-photo/myzostomid-worms-myzostoma-sp-feather-star-752445520
  15. A decent $$$ licence, and I was recently in a position to mark as exclusive, so my 50% cut top end $$. 9th licence of this image by Alamy and 13th licence overall.

  16. Ivan, I think you are confused. Your contact with Alamy, section 4.2 clearly states " (i) You are the Copyright Owner of the Images or have authority from the Copyright Owner to enter into the Contract and that the Copyright Owner is the sole owner free from any third party rights of the entire copyright and all other intellectual property rights throughout the World in the Image except for any rights that have previously been licensed or granted for the use of the Image/s, and that accordingly the Image/s do not infringe upon any third party copyright, trade mark, moral right or other intellectual property rights; or (ii) the Image has been supplied to you to distribute under contract for the uses for which they are proposed to be licensed; or (iii) the Image is entirely free from copyright and no attribution is required." Therefore unless you buy the copyright to the royalty free (or any other) image you want to add to your own, then you do not own copyright of the image. If you add it to one of your images, then for that part of the image, you do not own copyright and cannot load the image to Alamy, or any other place that requires you to be the copyright holder. Just because you buy the right to use an image, does not mean you have bought the copyright.
  17. I'll start this off for the month. July was a dismal 4 licences for $257.18 gross. One of my worst months for a very long time. CTR OK at .84. 3 images zoomed also licenced during the month.

  19. I know they're common, and relatively easy to shoot, but just sometimes, the colours, expression on the fish and composition all fall into place.
  20. Finally got the first sale/s for the month. 3 images for the same use, taken in Bali. Zoomed a couple of days ago. Decent $$. The 3 sales worth well over double $$$.

  21. Very much off topic....but reading about UB40 made me laugh. Some years ago, I was returning from a holiday and the band had been playing in the same place. Members were strewn around the plane, and one of the band members (who I'll not name here....except to say he's very tall) was seated next to me. Within minutes of takeoff, he settled down with head on my shoulder to sleep the flight away. He obviously enjoys snuggling too! Trying to get out of my seat for the bathroom was a logistical nightmare & getting seated even worse....he'd taken over the whole area, and was snoring lustily! When I woke him for landing, he sheepishly admitted to partying non stop since their concert 2 days before!
  22. It's always challenging to get 2 fish in the frame together and also have them in focus. All shot with 100mm macro lens.
  23. An average month for me. 7 licences, gross $428.01. CTR down though, about the Alamy average.
  24. Yes, it is! And a reverse search shows it on many dozens of sites now. Many with an Alamy credit. So I sent an infringement form in last week asking them to see who else should be paying a fee....only got the automated reply back so far.
  25. Lower end $$. RM With a 50 year licence! Country: WorldwideUsage: Magazine, Editorial print and digital use. Any size.Any Placement.Repeat use within a single issue.Industry sector: Media, design & publishingStart: 25 June 2019End: 25 June 2069
