  1. Have always been mirrorless. Started with a Panasonic Lumix G7, then a G80, now I use full frame Lumix S1 which I love, though it is a lot heavier.
  2. Getting a decent number of sales so far this month (all direct) but the amounts are so varied. High $$, mostly lowish $$ to very low $. Latest an Upday Samsung news image - part of a monthly 400 image package for which my princely take home pay is $1.54. Microstock prices perhaps? Janey Godley who has been in the news lately
  3. Twitter and other social media are your friend. Read all the national newspapers (use Press Reader) because sometimes they have press releases about forthcoming events. Cultivate local contacts. It’s a lot of hard work; but for me it’s beginning to pay off after several years.
  4. My views look fine but I haven’t had a zoom for over a week which is highly unusual and I don’t think can be attributed to the bank holiday. Hopefully the lack of any data today means that something is being fixed.
  5. Recent news sales means I’ve just now got 20 more sales than the whole of 2020. But about $1,500 less. I guess that may not be such a positive result.
  6. I noticed that too. I usually check zooms every day but ones I saw then disappeared. Apparently I have only had two zooms since last Monday and that definitely isn’t right. Measures is also telling me that I have only had 3 sales since then which excludes all of the news sales that came in on Friday so something has not updated that’s for sure.
  7. Presentation use at full price for 19th century graffiti in Egypt
  8. Think this might be my first TV use. No idea what it might be used for. $$$ sale.
  9. Cheers TeeCee. A grand job you’re doing. One more I noticed in Alba section 😉 Nick Barley Edinburgh International Book Festival Director at programme launch, July 2021, Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland, UK Sally Anderson 2G6PYD7
  10. Just sold this images (for measly $). Kathleen Jamie has just been made the new Scottish Makar.
  11. The thing is I’m not sure that there has been a drop in submissions. The submission ID number continues to rise rapidly, even more rapidly than it used to I think. Of course we don’t know how many images are in each submission, but I expect any drop from individual contributors is more than made up for by other agencies.
  12. Only uploaded a week ago so a fast sale, though only for $$ presentation use.
  13. Unreported news uses, yes they get invoiced after the 3 or 4 month period has elapsed. Others are chased in a variety of ways.
  14. Useful for other reasons though. I put all zoomed images on Copytrack, and it often turns up images that have either been copied with the watermark or used but not reported.

    Until the commission change my income was roughly 50% of the gross shown in the graph on the dashboard, give or take a few distributor sales. With the commission increase it’s harder to judge what the net effect of sales revenue is so I wonder if it might be possible to have a second line showing the net income as well as the gross. This might also be included in the figures for sales to date, sales for the year and sales for the month.
  16. Tried, no joy. Just reported a news use in April that was never invoiced and I have another 10 to let them know about next week - all should have been reported before the commission change. Alamy have made a lot of money out of the work that I have done over the past few years finding and reporting uses of my photos that I assume they would otherwise never know about.
  17. Going to start this month’s thread, but not really good news. An image sold prior to the contract change for $ refunded at 50% commission and resold for a few cents less at 60% commission! If it was a bigger sale, I think I’d complain.
  18. No. Not unless you want Alamy to chase up infringements without asking you first if you’ve sold an image to anyone else directly yourself.
