    One photo that was in my sales report today, I can’t show you because Alamy has removed it. It is of a mural in Venice Beach, California. It was used in the same guide book as the photo in my previous post in this thread. I suppose the buyer downloaded it before it was removed from the site.

  14. Favourite images uploaded - May 2018

    I actually shot this for a builder client but I thought, why not upload it for stock. We'll see if it sells

    Thanks Albert, for the spot!
  25. What have we learned about stock?

    1) That everything and anything can and does sell. 2) Having a large and diverse collection is very much a plus.....unless you are like Wim, who has a high quality and tightly edited collection. I don’t have the skill or discipline that Wim has. 3) That the internet, crowd sourcing and digital cameras in nearly everyone’s hands, have helped reduce the once healthy stock pricing.
