  1. Dry January

    Nice one.....Christmas present on your birthday Happy Birthday $$$
  2. Dry January

    Well i've had 2 PU sales only for this month...both were distributor sales and $11 gross total before deductions both images were more suited to a commercial use being a cement truck..and a shipping container on the back of a semi trailer....Ahh well no real joy in those sales for me, just hoping something better will happen soonish

  4. Meet and Shoot - Sydney

    Yes agree that a direct sale comes up trumps Well i am still to have some pocket money for this month, but it will happen soonish..This year i am making more effort to build my folio as i have more time and i want some more pocket money.. I see that you specialise in architecture James and i like the way you go about it...great images too..There is quite a lot of new building projects proceeding in London and surrounds, as i love architecture as well i enjoy seeing new designs and building styles, and there is a lot happening in your neck of the woods...across the huge pond from where i live. I used to live in Melbourne and now live in Ballarat for the last 8 years, and will be getting down to Melbourne to photograph more architecture as the city has some great new completed buildings...I know i have plenty to photograph here in Australia, but i know i would have a ball in a city like London with my camera!...Ahh keep dreaming Bill...and clicking away
  6. Helloll!

    Food, glorious food....You've put a lot of work into your great images Marina, hope they sell well for you...Hello from Australia Cheers Bill
  7. Has the last day of the month 'surge' been and gone ?

    Well done Gen, your success does give one the incentive to shoot more variety and of course get the image numbers up..( great portfolio BTW ) Bill

    Good on you Andrew...and i do like your portfolio, and you deserve the success from your talent and effort....Every photographer here has choices...We all want the same thing to be rewarded with sales for our efforts....We all have varying degrees of talent, and we all have reasons that motivate us to shoot stock...but in the end we still have the choice to do it or not.. I hope that things improve for us all in 2019...in whatever we choose to do...The business of Stock Photography rolls on and is ever changing, i personally will endeavour to allocate more time to my hobby...But collectively we just have to do the best we can, and i do feel for working professional that needs to live off their chosen profession... Best Wishes to ALL in 2019

    I don't really understand why you had to make this comment.....There are always costs and whether you're well off, or a pensioner or other ....you still consider the costs...If you are a professional (as i have been ) then you have to work harder if your chosen income market is drying up....or find other markets....Do you resent hobbyists or part timers taking a slice of the pie?.....just saying
  10. BIG Sale....refunded after 3 weeks...

    Totally agree!! You have celebrated your great sale...spent the money and then wham...( like in Pearl's case ) you have to pay it back after 6 months....ridiculous!
  11. BIG Sale....refunded after 3 weeks...

    I feel your pain,i think many of us have experienced the high sale value being refunded and then resold at a lower price...One does wonder if in some cases the buyer is dishonest ,freaks out at the higher price for image use criteria...and then rebuys at a lower price but still goes and uses the higher value licence use...Very hard to keep track of this type of thing happening..
  12. very quiet

    Well done Martin nice to hear that prices have risen for you..This year the number of sales have dropped for me but i know i need to increase image numbers and content variety...
  13. Merry Christmas

    **** Best wishes to all **** Tall short fat or slim ....rich or poor....or just perfect Have a good one....and find time for a laugh Cheers Bill
