  1. 2 small sales at the start of Nov, the rest was tumbleweed. So much for end of month last minute sales. I have exclusive War Of The Worlds images here, the show aired this month and guess what....not a single sale. I spent a week on that set, all for nothing. Mind you, the series was rubbish after waiting 18 months for them to air it. Typical BBC.
  2. I was wondering when you were going to wade in with your usual words of encouragement.
  3. Yes but a lot of my shots are not covered by the press, publicity etc. Some of mine are a bit more niche. sfx Shots of the dead bodies for instance, and other stuff.
  4. I have a lot of exclusive behind the scenes shots of the making of War of the worlds taken when filming in April 2018. A lot nobody else has coveted. The series is at long last being aired currently. And I haven't sold anything. Its unbelievable considering the high profile the series is getting worldwide, fan interest, sci fi, movie mags etc etc. Just goes to show if you put all your eggs in the Alamy basket it doesn't pay off. Now I will have to resort to conceding in making them available for personal use, or sell them on microstock sites. Very sad.
  5. I used a macro lens on my Nikon and I think the results were as good as any decent scanner. Its nice to be able to edit them in Lightroom too as in those days you had to get it right first time. I don’t think I could cope with that now.
  6. Betty, those images of the portraits were taken as a HND student 31 years on medium format for my environmental portraiture brief so stock, or showing them in action working etc wasn't my aim. Totally different type of photography but after scanning them for my personal portfolio I thought why not place them here anyway, you never know, someone might purchase them for a particular need but thanks anyway.
  7. No. I have exclusive shots of behind the scenes of the upcoming bbc War Of The Worlds tv series due to be aired very soon worldwide, some good ones nobody else has and yet non have sold here except 1 small personal sale (which I have since stopped and made all editorial) So considering its a major story, first time ever on tv being aired worldwide, its a very very poor return here.
  8. Thanks Alan, will check that but I do tend to add all keywords to my plants when uploading. I really don't think keywording is the issue causing the poor sales slump though, especially when I was getting better sales in previous months with less images..
  9. Doesn't happen at any time of the month for me anymore. Its pants.
  10. I think the thread was deleted for some unknown reason as I can't find it..
  11. I thought you said in another post that you had no sales last month.
  12. Nothing. Zero. More images = less and less sales. Not even the usual end of month sale. Abysmal.
