  1. Mid $$ Country: Worldwide Usage: Commercial electronic, Websites, apps, social media and blogs (excludes advertising). Worldwide for 5 years. Media: Website, app and social media Image Size: Any size Start: 27 January 2020 End: 27 January 2025
  2. Absolutely. If I was just shooting stock I don't know what that total would be.
  3. I can't quite believe it myself! I must be doing something right, although 3 sales for the month is rubbish 😥
  4. Third sale for the month dropped in this morning, putting my total sales since I started Alamy at exactly $10,000! That's given me a mighty boost!
  5. Another gem has reared its ugly head in this occasional series of 'Live News, really?!' thread. Images have appeared this morning of various company logos displayed on a smartphone. Staggering how these pics are classed as live news...
  6. Sadly, since I've turned pro, my love of photography has gone. I only pick up the camera now if I'm earning or if there's a chance to earn. I bring my cameras everywhere and always look out for stock pics, beauty doesn't come into it any more. News and stock are permanently at the forefront of my mind. Photography is no longer a hobby, simply a job. That said, I love my job.
  7. Mid $$ Country: Ireland Usage: Educational book, editorial print + digital use, inside, one time use only Industry sector: Media, design & publishing Start: 21 January 2020 End: 21 January 2030
  8. That's very interestiing. Goes against the whole 'upload more' ethos.
  9. First sale of the decade - low to mid $$ Country: Worldwide Usage: Single company, editorial magazine, print and or web, multiple use 5 years Industry sector: Media, design & publishing Start: 14 January 2020 End: 14 January 2025
  10. If it's man flu you have then, quite clearly, you'll be lucky if you're discharged from hospital by then. Thoughts and prayers...
  11. Makes me laugh when people complain about the LR subscription model. I know of no other computer programme which is such good value for money AND makes money for the user. After all, Alamy is a professional 'thing', so to be professional one has to use the best possible tools for the job. I pay €12.50 per month and I think it's the bargain of the century.
  12. I've been going to this show for a number of years and attended the pro conferences. All they are is blatant self-promotion for the speakers, apart from Joe McNally a few years ago. I don't bother with them any more.
