  1. I am sure your fortunes will upturn again. I had my first sale of year in April, then nothing until a few quick sales in Sept and Oct. Take care, and good luck.
  2. Hello! Hope you'll make good sales. It does take some time as mentioned above. It seems sales start coming slowly after half a year or more. Your urban images are interesting, and a couple I checked out have good amount of keywords. This one here is pretty cool - 2D9CX27. I think you can add tower as keyword, perhaps famous landmark, and the tower's name. I've found that the captions are super important, so putting the tower's name alongside the skyline would be helpful to come up web searches. Good luck! Alex g.
  3. Fantastic archival image. You should've been paid a little more for it. But still congratulations on the sale.
  4. First usage of this kind for me, and for the high price of $0.99! Usage: Student Projects, For non-commercial use in projects such as dissertations, presentations or essays. Industry sector: Education Image Size: Any size Start: 12 November 2020 Duration: In perpetuity
  5. Awesome! They even gave you the acknowledgement. That's great honor.
  6. Definitely zooms help, that's what I am seeing out of this too. I am paying more attention to relevant things, everyday things. But you're definitely catching important stuff like marches and protests.
  7. Awesome! I've seen an uptick in zooms too last couple of months, not quite the rate you have. I am total of 6, 2 in Sep and 2 in Oct! 😃
  8. This is appalling really, the photo is indeed very powerful and informative. It should definitely be several tens of dollars. Still though, congratulations on the sale, and great new additions of marches and the ballot. Let's hope the crazy times end, and civility returns to the office of the president.
  9. Two quick sales within a week. Editorial tv use - my kids in Halloween costumes, Phantom of the Opera and a ninja. PU - tomato soup meal cooked by my wife.
  10. Hey Chris, First of all before I add my opinion, let me just say that I am no expert and my portfolio is rather small as well relative to many long timers here. There is good variety of images, many objects, scenes and activities which I think are sellable. What can be improved in my opinion is the tagging. In the earlier photos (page 2 as displayed) many photos are under-tagged. For example, the lone elderly cyclist one. You can also add tags like male, man, elderly (on its own), exercise, recreation, method of transportation. Sometimes even tags related to the orientation of the im
  11. Yes, in an year and a half I've had 4 sales, though very pleased that 2 of them came this September. And I have a little over 500 photos, so I've been told to expect just that, a few a year. Some of the people with several thousand photos get a few a month.
  12. I don't believe that's possible. I think anything you've made available for sale shows up. Items pending deletion will disappear - I believe it takes 90 days or something for a deleted photo to be removed.
  13. That's a tough one. I think it's a question for Alamy staff. Editorial is usually fine without any model releases. However, in many ticketed events photography is not allowed. So this is one I think Alamy can give best guidance.
  14. Hello @Vicente Sargues, Your photos have great pop, are bright and high quality. I can see a lot of work has gone into them, especially for food and medical ones, a lot of setup and preparation. One thing that may not have been mentioned is that I think there are too many of nearly the same for the various subjects. I was told maybe limiting similar views/angles to 3-4. I have no proof it helps, but a lot of similar ones just from yourself pits images against each other and may make it harder for a customer to choose the "right" one. By the way, any improved luck since yo
