  1. I had 15 sales for $235 gross. I'm on track for my worst year since 2010. Most of my sales are to newspapers, where prices seem to have taken the biggest hit.
  2. You've got a good portfolio with good captions & keywords. I looked at Grazing cows, Trentino RMHH2T because I liked the picture. You don't have Italy or Italian in the keywords, just have Italy in the location.
  3. I just saw the news on the BBC website. He was always insightful on the forum, my condolences to his family.
  4. I reached $50,000 gross today. Kudos to Alamy as I've got a small editorial port, so they've done well. It took me 1638 sales and 11 years. My highest earning image has nine sales for $729 gross I haven't had any sales over $300 gross, probably because I don't have commercial images.
  5. Average month with 13 for $307 gross. Would have been a lot better without a $95 refund that originally sold four months ago.
  6. I like this shot of a Comma butterfly as it was my favorite out of five, and also the best focus on the eye.
  7. People should be encouraged to post on the forum, only a tiny number contribute. It's easy not to click on the link in Brazilnut's post.
  8. Average month with 12 sales for $292 gross. Good news: one $$$ sale Bad news: It's only the second $$$ sale this year and I'm on track for my worst year since 2010 unless I get a few more.
  9. I think it needs roughly five sales from the lowest paying national newspaper to rent photoshop for one month, which seems ridiculous.
  10. Poor month with 13 sales for $212 gross. Newspaper prices are too low, I'm effectively subsidising media empires.
  11. I think your people images are the most saleable, but you need thousands of pictures to compete. With your flowers you sometimes just put Rose, Clematis or Fuchsia without knowing the variety, which will reduce the chance of a sale.
  12. Average month with 17 sales for $300 gross. No $$$ sales, which is my theme for this year and puts me behind on last years revenue.
  13. I had an average month with 24 sales for $382 gross Jan $227 Feb $236 Mar $305 so April is my best month of the year. There were no $$$ sales and my overall revenue is about a third down compared to this time last year.
