  1. how much are you earning altogether with the other agencies? most of my portfolio is editorial, and I've gotten 50 sales since jan which is not great, but ok; i just feel i could do more sales if maybe some of the images were maybe more engaging with the audience, but that requires sitting at a location for far longer than i want to. as for prices, most of the sales were double digits spread evenly like a bell curve, with one sale from nutella germany that was 2660.

  4. your images have really excellent composition. yeah, QC is slow as F..... f-stop 22. the last day to upload stock before the people go home on the weekends is thursday morning the latest. anything after thursday morning, you will have to wait until monday for it to pass, or tuesday if it's a "bank holiday"
  5. it's useless. i contributed a few items, including new items added to list, and no views, no feedback. checked the all of alamy (AoA) and whatever searches were for those subjects, it seemed a one off event, and that customer is not coming back. however some of the subject matter did let me explore some areas which i would never consider going to.
  6. funds from a rare "Usage: Advertising and promotion" sale just cleared, don't have to worry about it.
  7. find a niche, and stick with it if you're successful; plus experiment with new techniques and ideas/subjects; and be flexible and ready for the unexpected, or at least try and make the most of a situation when you're not ready.
  8. I was in Berlin for the future for Friday climate March, and had a pic of Nobel prize nominated Greta T in front holding up a sign. I would have filed this, but didn't as I had some field issues. And in general Ihave covered other big and small protest marches in the past, are such events no longer newsworthy? Th problem is stuff like this doesn't sell BECAUSE alamy doesn't have the right buyers for them, all the buyers are looking on getty, yet photographers like me are being penalized because they don't have, or have few live news sales, and I've been patient. We shouldn't be penalized because of alamy's problem on their end. On of my friends 2 years ago started covering protests and submitted to a obscure publishing house in the Philippines that fed photos into getty, today, many of his photos on climate, and activism are regularly featured in the bigger usa magazines like the Nation, and in the NY times. Why penalize small photos like us who have been patient with alamy?
  9. i doubt the live news team is ever going to read these forums, but i say this is unfair. i occasionally do spot news when i come across it, bigger protest events that are non uk, european based. when i upload them here to alamy, they never sell I think due to alamy not having the right buyers for them. maybe 1-2 of the images might later get sold as a stock by a non news education/editorial buyer. however, i would like to have the option to upload such images and at least have a chance for somebody to at least glance at them and see if they would work with their newspaper or whatever. now i will never get that chance. i did try the pacific press route, but htat was a really bad setup. this really sucks. really unfair. now it's a catch 22 situation how do I get access and prove that i'm able to have news image available, yet, don't have access in any way to be able to do that. maybe alamy should be looking at increasing their us buyers. get the people who buy on getty to at least look at alamy. i can't get on getty, tried. the only thing that sold in a us newspaper recently wasn't even spot news, just a stock image to highlight an article. and recently, some spot news images I had of some local event but significant enough, some local newspaper wanted the images for free, i declined.
  10. found it. https://www.nutella.com/de/de/guten-morgen-fruehstuecksreise the other images are not alamy.
  11. One of my storefronts photos sold for low $$$$ for a German billboard/transit ad. I happen to be in Germany now, but leaving before it supposedly runs.
  12. i have a bunch of RM exterior storefront photos of theaters, and music clubs. and over the course of 2 years, seen some mysterious buyer buy each photo at $5.03. i don't know who they are, but it's getting pretty annoying, and wondering if other people have had the same experiences?
