  1. It's been a strange start to the month for me, with no sales from Monday to Friday, then a sale on both Saturday and Sunday. Both just personal use, low $$, direct to the EU, but welcome anyway. This one was taken in rural Cyprus.
  2. I think it's very difficult to get accepted by a specialist wildlife agency. The websites of Nature Picture Library and FLPA both state they are not taking on new photographers at present.
  3. I upload quite a lot of wildlife images, and get a reasonable number of sales, but not as many as I would like. The main factor is probably competition. It's difficult to sell portrait images of British birds, for example, because there are thousands of images already available for most species and so they would have to stand out somehow. I do much better with bees, butterflies and other bugs than with birds and mammals.

  4. Saturday Personal Use license for low $$. EU region but not via distributor, which is unusual. Petworth Park and House with an Egyptian goose in the foreground.
  5. My second best month ever with 19 licenses for $723 gross. Very happy with that especially as February has always been a poor month for me. Zooms a bit low though, so the good results might not last.
  6. View of Martin Down national nature reserve. Used on the Guardian website, $.

  8. UK magazine, print & online, low $$. This was taken at the New Forest Show in 2019 when large events were still allowed!
  9. My sales are going quite well this month, but mostly of rather boring subjects! Here's a couple. Multiple editorial use, educational, US sale for high $$ (possibly the same buyer as Michael's above) Low $$ for UK newspaper, print and online
  10. British Wildlife Vol 32, No.4, February 2021 ISSN 0958-0956 Front cover, Carrifran, Moffat, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, UK. 21st October 2020. Carrifran in the Moffat Hills.
