  1. Some pics from me. After the Finsbury Park attacks. Refugees welcome Brexit Kids
  2. Although, most agencies rename the files. Totally agree with the rest of the post.
  3. Don't expect to see the payment in your account before 5th July. It always takes a few days to process.
  4. I have the 5D MkII and MkIII and an old 1Ds (the original). A few months ago I bought the new EOS R - it's a cracking little camera (30MP) and produces much sharper files than my old cameras. It's just the AF system that needs adjusting to.
  5. Only been once, walked past the queues, flashed my press card and up I went. Bloody press people.
  6. Vigil for David Bowie Withered crosses with faded poppies In support for Palestine
  7. I'm still trying to work out how the AF works on the EOS R. It does, somehow. First attempt at moving subjects.
  8. Average sales have gone up from $22 last month that had loads of under $10 sales but also 2 above $100 sales to $37 with only a handful of under $10 sales and no plus $100 sales. Result: almost 50% more revenue with slightly fewer sales. In total: average month - or what we should call "the new average".
  9. May started really badly, but I'm glad last week's sales have been back to normal. With Brexit looming, I bet many publishers are probably waiting to see what will happen. Oh, distribution sales that used to be few and far between, have really picked up.
  10. That's mine, too. I only downloaded it a week or so ago.
  11. You can upload news images through the Alamy website if FTP doesn't work.
  12. 50% of my sales were under $10. And most of those were distributor sales, too. If it hadn't been for 2 100+ sales, it would've been the worst month (of the last 12).
  13. The idea is not wrong, but it's difficult to achieve sometimes. Saying that, I was at the big Brexit protest a month ago and watched staff photographers from PA and AP. They probably have basic captions pre-loaded, then they transfer the images via wifi to their phones and off they go. I'm sure they will sit down after the event and select a few more pix, but this is how it works nowadays.
  14. Mine have. Uploaded a bunch of pics over Easter. Quite relieved as I used a new camera.
  15. I opted out of Novel Use earlier this month and now I have a NU sale. This is not right. My image has been restricted for this use.
  16. Here are my three images: Women in Power: Caroline Lucas MP, The Green Party, Leanne Wood MP, leader of Plaid Cymru and Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland/leader of the Scottish National Party. Suffragettes Soldiers
  17. Should be in colour. You can always turn it into black & white for stock later.
  18. Slightly down on February and no last week surges. Average month.
  19. It's always a good idea to email them a few days ahead of any events so that they know you will be covering it. Also send an email to them once you have uploaded images. Saying that, I had some images rejected and moved onto reportage through a newsdesk mistake, but I don't want to go into it.
  20. Three from me: Camel feeding Feeding time Getting there
  21. No worries. However, one of the first things I was told when I started out in stock photography: take all declarations of (fabulous) sales with a grain of salt. We don't have many photographers boasting about their sales on Alamy and those on the forum are all very genuine about their ups and downs. But, to be honest, I rather have one $100 sale than 400 poxy little ones.
  22. Maths isn't your strong point, is it? Look at the question you asked.
