  1. Thanks It is my favourite place in the world. Not visiting this year to cut costs a little, and going to miss it immensely! Need to do a Dominican trip early next year for my mom, but hopefully either later next year or early 2022 - but that sounds so far away
  2. And with my next publish I will be over 6000! Now done processing all my bird photos, and then only have a couple of species of mammal to clear out. Then will be free to spend more time on editorial stuff. Hoping to hit 10 000 images this year, but that will mean about 3500 photos. Quite a lot for a year.
  3. All of my images are unproductive. Not seen a sale here in 3 months now! And I feel I have at least a couple of that deserve some attention I can tell I'm not far off having a "why am I doing this crisis"
  4. It's kind of an agency that I use as my site now. All images are available on their market place, but you still get the option to have your own store with your own prices, hosted on your own domain. Hence, any images I put there cannot be marked exclusive here.
  5. When I had foolish aspirations that my personal site may somehow make some money, I had some images I kept exclusive to my site, including this one, which have always been quite fond of. Still making my way through those images, and down to the last 250. Now using a much cheaper solution for my site, which has the benefit of having it's own online market place. Not that sold anything there - or much of anything anywhere currently I'm probably going to have to change all my exclusive RM content here to non-exclusive RF so that I can list some here as well as my own site.
  6. So, editorial can be black and white, but can creatively processed images? You know, I have spent so much time trying to process my backlog, I still have so much to learn. Thankfully, there is an end in sight. Starting to get better at dropping rubbish (still sometimes keep it), now way better at processing and getting better at keywords and descriptions, got my particular agencies lined up and my submissions process streamlined, and only about 1000 images left to go through. I'll be glad, because so often I put off going out so as to make more progress working that backlog. But, anyway, I'm hoping for some nice snow in February. It's been a very mild winter. Would be great to have some serious weather
  7. Nice. I always shy away form doing submitting any kind of "creative" imagery to stock sites.
  8. I love wildlife photography in the winter, more than summer - if you can get a nice/ok day! Though, aiming to start exploring a bit of London winter over next couple of months. Need to get away from wildlife just a smidge more. Maybe visit some small nearby towns. I'm surprised that some small out of the way places I have shot have come up in searches. But even then, heavy cloud leads to dull stuff a lot of the time.
  9. I don't make resolutions, but I would like to spend less time chasing wildlife this year, and focus on shooting other things more. Problem with that is, my wildlife outings provide my escape. They relax me - even when they are exhausting! I do need to get better at throwing away images that aren't good. I am already getting better at this, but I do need to be more ruthless than I am. But then, I sometimes think an image looks Ok, but when I go back to it later, I have to ask myself "What the hell were you thinking?" But on that second point, I still have a lot to learn.
  10. I did as well as I did in November - I.e., nothing at all.
  11. Well, so much for turning a corner, few sales finally came in couple of months before Nov, only for last month to return nothing at all.
