  1. at long last a second sale for me on Alamy ...$$ very happy with that after almost a year of uploading!
  2. Many thanks for your valuable input Ian, yes composition still has me pulling my hair out at times and deleting many images that I thought would be perfect.... one of my biggest concerns was perhaps the fact that all my images are RF instead of RM and that perhaps that could play a big role in the fact that I am not getting sales as well but I have accepted that I need to at least double my port and then take it from there, if things are still looking dismal here after that then I will have to throw in the towel and accept defeat! thanks for your encouragement, I will definitely r
  3. Hi Paulette I am still so fussy about putting the correct information down on my images...what a pity that is such a rare caracal to find! I was in the Kgalagadi two weeks ago and managed to get a few shots of a Caracal at a waterhole at sunset, unfortunately not the rare animal but it was still a great sighting! I am still finding so many images on Alamy with wrong place names and I'm sure the assistants at the contributors help desk dread getting all my emails to ask photographers to change them to the correct places...
  4. HI MizBrown, many thanks for taking the time to send your helpful information, there are so many photos on Alamy of Cape Town that I doubt there are any undiscovered places left for me to photograph Lol but I get what you're saying and will take that into account when I do my next photography shoot, the main reason for concern was the fact that I don't want to keep adding to a portfolio that is just not performing well but the few photos that I do have on MS sites sell regularly...however I will try and double this port first and then if I still don't get many more sales, I will throw in the
  5. My last sale was August 2018 and although I got a fair amount of zooms and many views over January - March, I still have no further sales...I wonder if it's because I sell mostly editorial RF and although I have about 20-30 images from here on MS sites (they definitely sell there) the rest are all exclusive to Alamy, I only sell images from Africa (that could also be limiting) ...await your responses Thanks Childa https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/114169.html
  6. congratulations!! here's to a whole load more soon...
  7. still no more sales since August last year but had lots of zooms and views in the first two months this year....now very quiet indeed! not sure what significance that is since I still have a very small port. Vast majority of my images are exclusive as well...but not sure if I will keep it that way anymore.
  8. Congratulations on your first sale here!! ..... hopefully more will follow faster than my long wait
  9. I'm still adding to my portfolio every week, feels like it's taking forever to get to 1000 images Lol..... We stayed in Madrid for 4 days then took a train down to Sevilla and spent a week around there plus time in the mountains, Aracena region, where it rained most of the time! after that a train down to Barcelona for 4 days and then back home to Cape Town, but next time it will definitely be for longer as I really want to visit the north of Spain for the cooler weather and green areas!

  10. Hi David a really nice and varied portfolio of images! I also am fairly new but just wanted to say good luck with your sales and I had a wonderful two weeks in your beautiful country a few months ago, Spain will always bring me great memories
  11. I'm sure it was PU but I stand to be corrected as I was overseas at the time and briefly saw the sale and only looked at it again when I got back home two months later, but that stage I could not see all the details just the price it was sold for.....however no sales have come through since that one in 2018
  12. yes I have recently started doing the same as you and it's definitely selling better for me over on MS....still early days though!
  13. no releases were obtained and it was marked clearly on the image plus I had noted that it was exclusive to Alamy and it was to be sold as editorial only....
  14. I will probably do that as soon as it's possible.....I was too new at that stage to understand much about stock photography and sales, but I'm getting more clued up as I go along and especially reading these forums, much wiser now!
  15. my one and only sale here has been as personal use ( a street scene of people buying items from a stall on a street corner...personal use?) and I got only $5 nett perhaps because I sell as RF only...not sure but that's not much better price than selling on a MS site IMO!
