    Used to love skiing, before I got too old and too poor! Obviously, I am into photography big time and run my own, one-man, photography buisness! I also like to try my hand at digital art and sometimes drawing with a pencil or rotring pen. I do a bit of running/jogging, mainly in local parks. I'm into films and I am currently, the official photographer at the Misty Moon Film Society, at Flatplanet in Soho and The Cinema Museum, where I get to meet and photograph a wide range of "stars of ther silver screen".

  1. I think the images you have are perfectly saleable, perhaps putting more keywords on them would help their visibility in the search engine. There are a few too many "similars" in you collection. As you probably know, stock photography is a bit of a numbers game and your portfolio is very small, presently. I have found that a large and varied portfolio helps with sales volume. So you might struggle with wildlife only, here on Alamy. Certainly finding a niche or specialization can be a good thing, particularly if you subject is underrepresented in the collection, but sticking mainly to

  7. You have many repetitions of the same subject, but the main reason for no sales is that you just don't have enough images on line yet. Its a numbers game, (yes image quality and composition, does count), but I would suggest you broaden the types of topics and subject matter that you photograph.
  8. Its manly due to the number of key words you have, 40 gives you good discoverability and 50 is the optimum (and maximum you can add too)
