  1. First SLR: Canon Elan IIe First Digital Camera: Minolta Dimage 7i First DSLR: Canon 20D
  2. This was one of my favorite photos from a trip to South Dakota a couple years ago. We were there just after Labor Day and in early morning, so I was able to get a shot of the state flags with hardly anyone around. Just a couple hours later when we were done looking around this area was packed with people.
  3. Congratulations! I have been submitting photos since the end of August and have a whopping 40 views. Still not much, but any day that the number goes up I go into the measures tab and look to see exactly what they looked at and how it was searched. I'm still waiting on zooms or sales as well, one of these days...
  4. I agree that a lot of the resources out there seem to talk more about learning how to take photos, or how to run the business side. It can be more difficult learning exactly how to hone your skills towards either shooting stock in general, or more specifically I am still trying to figure out how to take more editorial pictures as that seems to be what is suggested for Alamy. If you are just trying to make some money on the side it is easy to just assume that you can just upload whatever you have on your hard drive that is high quality and not have stock specifically in mind when y
  5. I think when you first sign up to sell photos through a site like Alamy there is a lot of excitement about the possibility of making money with your photography and being able to buy gear, travel or just live off of a passive income. It can be frustrating to learn that it takes time and those that are successful have worked very hard and put in a lot of time to finally get to that point. Especially when you look at the huge portfolios of images available from those top earners vs what a beginner is likely to actually start with. I know I went through that in 2011, I started at ot
  6. I haven't picked myself off the floor yet... Even though I joined way back in 2011, I didn't get anything up for sale until about a month ago. So at one month and 83 images I'm sure I have some time and additional uploads to go before that first sale.
  7. I started shooting with my dad's Pentax K1000 that he hadn't been using for a few years. When I got a job as a teenager I decided to upgrade to a more modern SLR and bought a Canon Elan II that still sits in my closet.
  8. I have noticed that searching by your name will also show images in Stockimo if you have those. When I click from the forum I only see those that were submitted specifically through Alamy.
  9. Welcome! I'm in the US and just building up a portfolio on Alamy, so I can't tell you how the market is here, but we will find out.
  10. Thanks for the advice! I didn't upload a lot of microstock and it was mostly white background type shots. I doubt I will bother transferring that over here. It will definitely take me a long time to get to thousands of images, but I will try to upload as much as I can. The patience part I can do, I have dabbled in micro for years and never really made anything, so what's a little more waiting...
  11. Hello! I'm from Colorado and just got approved to contribute. I actually joined way back in 2011 and my initial submission failed QC. I didn't really try again, but tried microstock at other sites for a little while and never really got into that style of shooting. More recently I have been wanting to get a little more serious and finally decided to resubmit and give Alamy a little more attention. I just had a couple images accepted and need to start shooting and uploading a little more seriously now.
