  6. Keywording truly is a black art, and it's easy to miss the genuinely useful words... and cram the boxes with irrelevant words instead. You have to take your 'photographer' head off, and become a pic researcher instead...

  8. 113 pix in "a couple of years"? Try uploading this number every week or two, for a year or two... and you'll make plenty of sales. Some terrific pix (Saltburn surfer, Malham Cove, etc), though, from my own experience, the pix that sell best can be quite prosaic... rather than the beautifully-lit landscapes...

  13. Well, I don't think the current state of the stock business - with Alamy as a fairly prominent member - is going to get the majority of contributors punching the air in triumph. And, of course, there are a few contributors who seem determined to be as grumpy as possible until the Grim Reaper comes calling. I'm happy to be scratching a living from doing two things I love - writing and photography - rather than, say, working in a shoe shop or a call centre. I'm happy with Alamy's transparent dealings... but not so thrilled about the price per image. So, on the whole, I'd say I'm stoical abou
