  1. Worst month in years. 3 sales for $39 gross. It's really taken the wind out of my sails - I've been working so hard. 😞
  2. KHA, I love that you have brought up this subject! I'm also very concerned with the ways animals are mistreated and exploited. I photograph at zoos, fairs, and anywhere that animals are kept, and trty to capture the whole spectrum of treatment they are receiving. I use several approaches. 1) I will highlight the way an animal is being mistreated, such as the spectacle of a farm animal giving birth in front of a throng of gawking people at a fair, with no shelter or place to feel safe or secure from the crowds; or the hypocrisy of miserable pigs in gestation crates underneath a sign that reads "We love our pigs!!"; or focus in on the sharp hook that a fair kid is holding to keep her cow in line; 2) I try to photograph animals in a way that they are truly seen as creatures with their own rich lives, despite their circumstances; and 3) I photograph at animal sanctuaries as often as possible to show how it can be for an animal that is happy and well cared for. It's also a great antidote to the unhappiness that comes from photographing exploited animals. I think that we do need photos of animals in all types of situations and that if done with care which you obviously have, these photos can be very useful. PS. thanks for bringing up this topic, one I would love to see more of here in this forum and elsewhere
  3. Only one sale in the past 3 months to the US - almost all others are "worldwide"
  4. Only once before. . . looks like I'm going to need to report the others. Thanks for your help!
  5. Follow up: When I go to my sales history I can't find a link to download to Excel. And if I go to Measures and try to put in dates for my sales which date back to 2010, it seems to just freeze - nothing happens. Any advice on how to download my sales history to Excel? Thank you!
  6. I just did a reverse image search on a photo that sold today, and discovered that it was also used twice previously in other publications over the past few years. I'm not sure if those other sales were reported, and am wondering. . . rather than go through pages and pages of my known sales history, is there a way to find the sales history of just an individual image? Thank you!
  7. Not true in my case - I'm in the US and the past two months have been a couple of my worst ever
  8. Thanks for the input/advice! I'm interested to try this route and see how it goes, since I can no longer submit news.
  9. When submitting via the reportage route, do the headlines and captions need to be included in each image file (like in news submissions) or can they be added afterward in AIM? Thanks!
  10. Thanks John, that is helpful actually. It's a good reminder for me that where I live is "travel" for someone else, and to look at/shoot from that perspective.
  11. Hi John, curious what types of images/subjects are big sellers for you? Thanks!
  12. Don't worry too much about it - some people will follow just to get follows back, then they ditch you. It's just how some play the game.
  13. I have a new IG account for my black and white plant photography if anyone is interested - @botanicalbiographies
  14. I'm still experiencing slow uploads as well. No problem with uploads anywhere else, just with Alamy, but when I emailed Alamy again I was told (again) that the problem is not on their end. 🤷‍♀️
  15. I'm in the US and can't see it - get an error message. Using Windows and Chrome.
