  1. OK well I am getting a really poor response from Alamy, which is against my experience, normally the girls and guys over there are very responsive: Last email I received on the 29th of Jan 2021 was: Hi John We’ve asked our team for the latest update on this and we’ll get back to you. Kind regards, ***** 7 days later and no update, this is not the first time they have given this response see this email: 22nd Jan 2021 Hi John, Apologies for the delay with this – we’ve asked our credit con
  2. Hi All, Been chasing this up with Alamy for some time now, but no luck. Made a sale in July 2019 and STILL haven't received payment for it - seems mighty unfair to me that a person/company can use an image and NOT pay for it - OK I understand that Alamy haven't got their cash to, but it's over $100 to me and every penny counts! Has anyone else had this happen? How was it resolved? Cheers John
  3. HI Ed, Yes my OP said 12 - Geoff then said this was setting the bar very low and it should be 10 times that so I increased my goal to 120. Hi Ed, Great shot there - I can see why you didn't add Rome, Italy as the location is not relevant to the image - the image could have been taken anywhere in Europe.. Hi John, Thanks for the feedback - no personal use sales at the moment. OK guys I am getting some great brain chow here thanks for the input, I really do appreciate it. I've got a small project tomorrow (a local Russian farmers market) just down the road from me, so
  4. Thanks Geoff and thank you for looking through my port - not harsh at all I welcome the honesty - I don't want anyone blowing smoke up my rear .. I will re-evaluate my subjects and get to grips with looking at the Alamy database of images for where I need to be as a photographer. I had a feeling my artsy stuff was not going to do well here - and as for the backgrounds, they are weak I agree.. Your advice helps me realize that I need three channels: 1) Artsy images need to go to POD sites. 2) Stock textures and backgrounds should not be uploaded here - these should go Micro as RF
  5. Hi Alexandre, None of my sales have been in B&W - I think I will consider not uploading B&W version in future - thanks for your words, it makes sense to only upload a color version. Cheers John
  6. Thanks Micro for the feedback- yes I feel keywording is an issue for me, something I am weak on, and yet I realize it's the most important part of selling images... I've gone through the Alamy Guide on this and will rework my ideas on the new batch I will be uploading over the next few days.
  7. Hello All, Struggling a little to get my head around the ethos at Alamy - getting a few sales, but is my port heading in the right direction or is it too Microstock orientated? I have a 200 London images and 100 or so in Russia that show people and locations - that I feel are better suite to the site. I am prepared to take the harshest criticism with grace.. My goal is to hit 12 sales a year - and to upload and keyword effectively pure RM material.. Thanks for looking John Williams
  8. Hi All, Just a quick hello from an English guy living in Russia - need a critique on my current port as I feel it is lacking something... Cheers John
