  1. Here you go... https://www.alamy.com/contactus/local-distributors.aspx Paulette
  2. I thought I'd see if they could use my wildlife photos. Yep. I searched for 'elephant' and very few elephants appeared. The first image is a jaguar and some of the images of people don't seem to relate to elephants at all. Their keywording may be even worse than Alamy's. Paulette
  3. Sadly, the newspapers are paying the smallest fees these days. I did get a good fee from the Wall Street Journal but my Uk ones have only been about $7.50 with one recent one being $15.50. Paulette
  4. Alamy asks that we wait three months before contacting them to see why a sale hasn't registered. I usually wait four. It is generally the newspapers that take a very long time. It is my understanding that they report usages to Alamy once a month. Paulette
  5. My looking has magical properties. When I am checking my iPhone to see if the bus is coming it comes! Paulette
  6. Mine seem OK. By "net revenue" do you mean Account Balance? Paulette
  7. Some days I do feel "old as dirt." Paulette
  8. I suggest emailing contributors@alamy.com. You don't show as having any images here though you say some have passed. Have you not annotated them yet? Paulette
  9. Magazine in Taiwan. $$ Male lion with his cubs, Masai Mara, Kenya Paulette
  10. Hooray! That is a perfect example of an animal photo that does more than just show an "eagle". It has a real emotional impact too. Just be sure to include Latin names in your captions and keywords. And take more phenomenal images like that one! Paulette
  11. You have some lovely images. Wildlife is mostly my thing and I can tell you it is difficult. We are competing with famous photographers here, the National Geographic Collection included. It helps to include Latin names (Panthera leo for your lion) and be very complete in your keywords and captions. What is the animal doing, etc. My photos of people are a tiny part of my portfolio and they sell more often than the animals. You seem to have captioned and keyworded your tribal images in a batch so they are not accurate. If it is a child you should only have "child" and "children". The same with men and women and add whatever behavior is in the images. You need more images and more variety. None of it is very easy here but many of your images are salable in my opinion. Just don't expect miracles. We all struggle a bit. Paulette
  12. So if you want the easy life as a lion you have to live here... https://www.wildanimalsanctuary.org The wild places are tough! Paulette
  13. Be sure to choose to be a male lion. The females do all the hunting and then the males insist on being the first to eat. I hope this won't offend anyone's politics. Paulette
  14. I may be wrong about what you are saying but if I put %bear% in the search box in All of Alamy in Measures I see all searches with bear in them. Paulette
  15. My theculturetrip sales were under Novel Use so I could opt out. But now similar ones seem to pop up that are not done under Novel Use. Paulette
  16. We've had sales to theculturetrip.com with that "app in perpetuity" through the Novel Use scheme. I opted out of that after two sales at $1.24. I think Novel Use should be more novel. Now those teeny tiny sales to editorial websites come along all too often though so far at least not less than $2.12 for me. Of course, if through a distributor it drops even lower. Paulette
  17. I admire your portfolio. If you keep up that quality I'm sure you will make more sales. Paulette
  18. I was fortunate to be able to photograph this California Condor chick a month after he fledged in Zion National Park. He is #1000 in the Condor Recovery Program and the first one to fledge in Zion. His parents are the only known breeding pair in the park.

  19. This trick won't work for you (unless you build a moat around her room) but a good trick for cat owners is to set their food bowl inside a larger bowl filled with water. If they can't reach food they tend to stop dropping by. Paulette
  20. I don't know what camera you are using and I am far from being an expert on technical matters but I can test and adjust the focus on lenses for my Nikon. Your problems could be due to inaccurate focus in your autofocus. Paulette
  21. Well I've had three sales but my net pay is $3.80 total. I think it is some kind of personal worst for me. Hoping for a three figure sale in the future. 😁 Paulette
  22. Editorial website through a distributor in Estonia, bulk rate, discount......... a tiny sale, obviously... Sigh. African Cape Buffalo in the Masai Mara, Kenya, East Africa Paulette
  23. I have one of those firewire to thunderbolt adapters and I stopped using it and went to just USB because it was more reliable though slower. Sometimes "speed" slows you down when there is a glitch! Paulette
  24. I'm still waiting for this one to sell for a greeting card. Alas, this time it's a tiny editorial website sale. Two of those today... Alaskan Brown Bear Cub in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, USA Paulette
