  1. It's tough going here and takes a while, but you'll be well-rewarded for higher fees (on average) than the micros. Good luck!
  2. I'll kick this off with a photo-shoot I did with my dad riding a bike overlooking Praia do Guincho, Portugal. What's your favourite for the month?
  3. I don't mean to be cynical but getting excited over a zoom?...
  4. Save the planet Heatwave in Portugal, thermometer showing 40 degrees in Cascais, Portugal Festas do Mar in Cascais, Portugal
  5. I work like a professional and earn like an amateur
  6. Ciao Lorenza, You have really well-executed images of the beautiful region of where you live (Trento). I would suspect that the reason why you're having such few sales is that there's not so many buyers looking for such specific images. Keep in mind that many of the Alamy buyers are UK-based editorials. Perhaps they'll feature the nearby Dolomites. The wine stuff is good for generic microstock type images and I'm sure they sell regularly should you be duplicating. I would suggest going for and searching for a more specialist Italian agency for Italian buyers. Buona fortuna!
  7. I would suggest a medium level of healthy saturation, not nuclear.
  8. Hi Carlos and welcome! I see you're going for the saturated look, which I tend to do as well, but it seems that you've pushed it too far on your images. I find that stock is less art and more science and that you need to appeal to as broad number of buyers as possible...in your case, some will love it, but most will hate it. Also, some of your crops/angles are unconventional and perhaps too artistic. Sticking to lens corrected with lots of copy space and PEOPLE in the frame is the best way to go about it. Since this is a predominately editorial agency, I find that commercial images have less value, so if you're shooting a public place, might as well include people. Didn't look at keywords but the captions look OK. Anybody else want to have a go? Good luck Alex
  9. How does US copyright law (even if there's merit in such a ridiculous accusation) apply in the UK?
  10. Visited an old Portuguese Lighthouse in Sesimbra and met the lighthouse keeper!
  11. You give me 6 months and I'd double your earnings but you'll have to sell your soul...
  12. ^^ The most significant benefit of going down the RF route, in my opinion, is the flexibility that comes with being able to duplicate such material at other stock agencies. That should make up for any lost revenue from missed out multiple RM licenses and the rare but not impossible exclusive ones on here. A contentious red arrow point, surely.
  13. Surfing spot in Munich, Germany. How do you say dude in German?
  14. I used to try to think of some logic here or there and just realised it's probably a waste of time/effort. I've decided to put everything but the live news stuff as RF editorial/commercial and be happy. Probably not a huge difference anymore with RM, it's all some sort of hybrid mutant micro-glorified license anyway.
