  1. If I divide my total gross earnings from Alamy, since I started in 2005, with total number of images on sale, I get $22/photo. Is it skewed by better revenue in the early years? Yes.
  2. A little below average for me with 15 sales for a gross of $916. 2 at $100+ I have a nice payout coming tomorrow, which is super welcome since my freelance income has come to a screeching halt. April will be interesting for sure.
  3. An IQ magazine use for mid $$. I suspect my last sale of the month.
  4. This pandemic is hitting way to close to home. My daughter came home from her hospital shift, last night, and she told me something I didn't want to hear...that her floor, or unit (as she calls it) is being converted to a Covid-19 unit. Starting next week, she will be working directly with Covid-19 patients. I am worried for her, I am worried for me. We have already distanced ourselves in my small home but we still share a kitchen. I do have some health issues that might make fighting off this virus more difficult. I can tell she is getting very stressed about this. This morning, on her way out the door, I jokingly said, "Don't you wish you became a photographer now?" She just shot me a nasty look and headed off to work. I look forward to a day when we can hug each other again!

  6. Some pretty great photos that The New York Times had put together yesterday showing the starkness of a seemingly empty world due to Covid-19 https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/03/23/world/coronavirus-great-empty.html?referringSource=articleShare&fbclid=IwAR1YJOyRakz2leo2KseXXKlma3ntW6fqrloVSBgOtE2Ygs0MRT5aAOhLn0c
  7. So great Kumar! I’m hoping to get to $200,000 by next year.
  8. My local city newspaper, The Washington Post, has a large staff of photographers out covering the effects of Covid-19. I am sure their photographers are taking every precaution while doing their job.
  9. This is so encouraging! Congrats! I think the most I have had, in a single day, was six.
  10. Had a semi emergency appt with my endodontist (a dentist who does root canals only) and he didn’t charge me anything but maybe a trade for a photo shoot later! Good deal I think!
  11. Yep, here in the U.S., we have all kinds of specialists within the dental field. Endodontists specialise in root canals and tooth pain in general. It’s a fancy name so they can charge more 😬
  12. I’m being forced out of self isolation by an ill timed toothache. An infection can’t be ignored. So my endodontist is seeing me today. He assured me that they take every precaution to keep everyone safe.
  13. So sorry Paulette....I think this pandemic is just getting warmed up. But hoping I am wrong!
