  1. I'll forward your thank-you note to avpics. 😉
  2. Totally agree. Linking would be better. In the past I liked some images and all I could see was the photographer's name (not even what it was a picture of). I then had to physically copy and paste the filekey to see what it was. I had two images used as front cover, but I don't think they have led to any sales.
  3. Fewer sales than July (which was a good month) but volume comparing well with previous months. Saying that, the first two weeks of August were almost non-existent. July average was just over $40, August down to $33. Almost 25% of sales were under $10. 😞 In all, slightly below average, but pleased that sales picked up from week 3.
  4. 10 years ago Bolivian Altiplano Too hot ...
  5. I know I shouldn't put in keywords in other languages other than English, but sometimes, just sometimes, there is no equivalent in English. Sometimes there are proper foreign "names" that cannot be translated.
  6. When I first used Photoshelter (having been on the Digital Railroad one before then), I got some great print sales from a show I attended. However, nothing to write home after this. I mainly used Photoshelter as a site to gain accreditations etc. and used it as a portfolio. Cancelled my contract with them over a year ago and they didn't even bother to write back to me asking for reasons.
  7. Good month. Best month for volume (just) and runner up for revenue this year. Average ~$42.24.
  8. Some pics from me. After the Finsbury Park attacks. Refugees welcome Brexit Kids
  9. Although, most agencies rename the files. Totally agree with the rest of the post.
  10. Don't expect to see the payment in your account before 5th July. It always takes a few days to process.
  11. 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.
  12. Only been once, walked past the queues, flashed my press card and up I went. Bloody press people.
  13. Vigil for David Bowie Withered crosses with faded poppies In support for Palestine
  14. I'm still trying to work out how the AF works on the EOS R. It does, somehow. First attempt at moving subjects.
  15. 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".
  16. 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.
  17. That's mine, too. I only downloaded it a week or so ago.
  18. You can upload news images through the Alamy website if FTP doesn't work.
  19. 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).
  20. 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.
