  1. Thanks for the offer! I was photographing in Thattekad Bird Sanctuary two years ago and before that visited Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary many times and Blackbuck National Park on two visits. All great places to see wildlife!
  2. Welcome Nilanjan, I have been submitting nature and wildlife pictures since 2016 and have almost 2000 pictures in my portfolio. There's plenty of nature photographers with Alamy so make sure your work stands out, edit ruthlessly, avoid submitting batches of similars, calibrate your monitor for colour and exposure accuracy, use histograms in Photoshop or Lightroom-many of your pictures are over saturated and/or under exposed, caption accurately using Latin names for species and take pictures of subjects you come to know well. The quality of your wildlife images count more than the qua
  3. Welcome Anna, I have been submitting nature and wildlife images since 2016 and have almost 2000 pictures. There's plenty of nature photographers with Alamy so make sure your work stands out, edit ruthlessly, avoid submitting batches of similars, calibrate your monitor for colour and exposure accuracy, caption accurately using Latin names for species and take pictures of subjects you come to know well. The quality of your wildlife images count more than the quantity-that is what will ensure sales.
  4. Unfortunately these rates are the result of fierce competition between stock photography companies. Alamy presently only takes 0.20% of the market and is ranked 15th out of the 30 top stock houses. One other stock library has close to a whopping 56% share of the market. Alamy is actually doing well for its photographers in this climate but clearly it's a buyers' market and the present trend would suggest photographers' earnings will deplete even further over time. It's a harsh world for photographers but hey....that's capitalism!
  5. Welcome Govind. I look forward to seeing some of your pictures soon. I will be photographing in Thattekad Bird Sanctuary in July this year. I wonder if you have ever been there. Regards, Dominic Robinson
  6. Thanks for the kind feedback. In terms of sales I am selling 3-4 pictures each month. Prices vary from $11 up to $250 dollars but as an average I would say around $30. In order to make lots of sales you will need thousands of good images-just keep making pictures!
  7. Hi, I have just tried a search with the phrase "indian animals" and then as a separate words "indian" and "animals". The phrase came up with 33 of my images on the first page and only 6 with the separated word tags. It clearly pays to use a phrase as well as separate words.
  8. Thanks Marianne. You have some very strongly composed images which show a great eye for form and colour.
  9. Thanks for your research. I will make some enquiries with Alamy.
  10. You're absolutely right. Yuk! Image GK72AD is all over the place with its colours, and very grainy too. Many of my pictures are scanned from my original collection of transparencies. I was a prolific nature photographer in the transitional days between analogue and digital cameras-it was really bad timing for me. Picture libraries were no longer accepting transparencies so I embarked on the huge task of scanning over a thousands slides. I got better over time, but some, as you point out, went wrong! The shot was taken on the beach near Byron Bay, New South Wales. I remember crawling on my bel
