  1. As this thread is in danger of getting political again, I'll post a couple of recent butterfly photos of mine. The first one is a purple emperor: This one is a dark green fritillary butterfly:
  2. 1) Fire and earth - burning linseed bale 2) Fire, air and water - Fiery sunset at Hatchet pond in the New Forest 3) Earth, water and air - Limestone scenery with rock pools in Cyprus
  3. OK, no problem. I often notice that distributor sales take longer to clear.
  4. I think his sales are through a distributor, not an affiliate, since he says he is owed 30% (you get 40% for affiliate sales). The OP still does not seem to understand that when a sale is reported, the buyer has not paid. When they do pay Alamy, the sale will show as cleared, and then you get paid at the start of the following month if you have $50 cleared.
  5. 15 for $1007 gross ($444 net), my best month ever by a long way, so a very pleasant surprise. Included 4 $$$ sales, 2 of those were direct exclusive, but 2 that came in last evening were distributer sales (Japan book licences for the same image - I wouldn't be surprised if one of these is refunded). Midway through the year, I'm at about 51% number of sales and 85% of revenue compared to last year.
  6. If you have an occasional batch of news images, it is worth emailing live news and asking them if they will give you temporary access to upload those photos. I am in the same position as you, and I have done this twice since being out of live news. Both time, I attached one example photo in my email with the IPTC data, etc, already included as required for live news, and both times they allowed me to upload as live news. Afterwards live news access is switched off again.
  7. Haha! Actually it's a slow worm - despite the name it's a type of reptile (legless lizard) not actually a worm. It was a natural shot - I was just lucky to find it on an attractive background of dead bracken.

  11. Well done, John. Yes, it sounds like the same book. Although it's a worldwide licence, it's a US region sale. I'll be looking out for the book when it's published.
