    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".

  3. Yes, I'm contributing on a regularly basis, both in my SLR photography and Drone photography too. In fact, I'm on course for a record breaking year both in terms of number of sales and earnings too, not that its exactly masking me a rich man! But, I still have a passion for photography, plus the fact that I'm semi-retired now. So, If I wasn't doing something I considered meaningful, creative and productive I would probably go a bit crazy! I'm opted in to Alamy''s "Addition revenue options" so I have to expect some of my sales to yield low prices. But I am, in general,

  6. I often get sales with very low, micro stock level, sales prices, as I'm currently opted into to Alamy's various additional revenue options. But its swings and roundabouts, because I still manage to get sales which command good prices too!

  9. Sold these two related images of the William E. Boeing Red Barn at the Museum of Flight, Seattle, a few days ago, licensed for worldwide transmission within the body of a TV show, for a good amount! I've just reached 11000 images in my portfolio too, so I'm pleased and will keep going!

  11. Another good month for me, with 15 sales so far, this one, from yesterday is the latest to appear and represents the subject area I currently specialize in. A 1953 Aston Martin DB3S/05 Ex Sir David Brown Racing Team, now fully factory restored by the Aston Martin Works
  12. 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
