  1. I'm really hoping the end of the month brings some sales because (for me anyway)it's been slow and I'm seeing a lot more of those really low fees than ever before. I'll echo Michael in saying that it is reassuring to hear that others are having a good month, however.
  2. Only $, for Prospect Magazine (I was surprised they included that info in the details!) I'm in Oregon and have a bunch of images of the smoke from last year's horrific wildfires. It's not the kind of thing I normally shoot, but there was no way I couldn't, it hung around our area for 10 days, thick and orange.
  3. Slow, disappointing month - 9 for $208 gross, only $85 net 😢
  4. I've had the same thing the past two months, Betty. It's bad enough with what is happening with our commissions being cut, but now they're taking money away. . . and for what??
  5. OK, I missed that, so much to try to follow here lately! Thanks for the link!!
  6. Has there been any response from @Alamy about these liability concerns, or have they said when they will do so?
  7. My first red arrow, for questioning what will happen with the stockimo commission?? Ok, whatever, really hard to care now.
  8. @AlamyI'd also like to know what the plan is with Stockimo commissions - nothing was mentioned about that in the blog post. I started with Stockimo as an Alamy contributor at the 50% commission rate and have over 3,500 photos listed there so I'd really like to know what to expect. (and yes I am aware that we're not supposed to discuss Stockimo here, but there's no other place to discuss it, and you did ask us to present our questions here. . .) And I guess further I'd add that it would be nice to have a forum in which it IS ok for Stockimo contributors to discuss their experiences!
  9. @Alamy In the spirit of your wish to be transparent (per your blog post), can you please tell us how many contributors actually qualify for that platinum level (selling 25k per year)? So far no one on the forum has come forward to say they qualify, and some whom we know of as being big sellers, or having a very large number of images, aren't even coming close to that number. No matter how I look at it, this new system seems designed to keep people in the lower tiers, which is truly disheartening. It's knocked the wind completely out of my sails. I'm only one person, one cog in the machine, so
  10. If you're not there with over 65,000 images it's hard to imagine that anyone is!
  11. Alamy - where is the loyalty to your photographers, especially to those of us who have been with you, and loyal to you, for a long time? To those of us who are providing you with exclusive content year after year? Every year there are fewer and fewer incentives to continue the hard work that goes into being a stock photographer. Every year we see our work being sold for lower and lower prices. I stopped being surprised by these contract changes a long time ago. Why not put the effort into motivating and providing incentives to us to keep at it, rather than slowly beating us down like this?
  12. Betty, I can relate!! I was just in Minnesota and encountered black flies while hiking - they were awful! I was with a friend whom they didn't bother at all, but they swarmed me and now I'm covered in huge itchy bumps. It's been 4 days and the bites aren't much better 😩
  13. 12 for $393 gross. An otherwise weak month was saved by one $$$ license for television.
