  1. If it works for you - great but giving advice who has great eye to snap signs is most demotivating/discouraging lesson ever. And no-one says about building career here.
  2. I see, however I would not say that some subjects are more or less worth than others. Everything could be presented in original way, even 'level one' landmarks. I have seen absolutely amazing postcards - I wouldn't underestimate them too. For me it's sad that some photographers are pushed to photograph 'street signs, restaurants'. I don't mean good reportage but photographing signs is probably the saddest thing I've heard. Completely out of passion, unless someone is taking pictures thinking only about Alamy
  3. Hi Edo - just curious. What do you mean by saying level 2 and 3 images? Where did you get this classification from?
  4. yes but there is no way to check which image particularly was zoomed, right?
  5. Hi Paulette, Is there actually a way to check what has been zoomed? That would be very useful but not sure how to do it
  6. My reaonsing is simple. 0.25 as a first sale would be very discouraging. On Alamy it is common that you have to wait for this first one some time while on other stock agencies it is common that first sales come straight away. I would like to think about Alamy differently and from my short experience with different stock agencies I (6 moths on 4 different ones) I am aware Alamy is different - slow yet worth it. The experience would be different if 0.25, then I would rather think - slow and not worth my time. After all from all 4 agencies after 6 months the amount of $ I've gained is very simila
  7. If I had a sale here for 0.25 cents I would dropped Alamy immediately. I was encouraged by others on this forum to upload with a good key-wording and not expect sales in the first year. On this forum I often see 'Alamy is different than micro stock' and 25 cents would be a prove that it is not. Luckily my first sales here started well, good few mid sales $$ Fingers crossed for encouraging sales for every new starter here
  8. You may disagree, I just advised to be patient as this is what I was told to be be other members here. And they were right. Patience pays. 3 sales now within a month.
  9. Hi, 0.54 CTR is quite low in my opinion. I guess it just takes time for images to appear in searching engines like google. Mine started to appear but I have only 0.6 CTR and no sales (probably due to amount of images). Just continue to upload like me and be patient. Best, P
  10. Love Martin Parr! His wok is insanely good! And I had a chance to meet him in person. Fantastic guy
  11. I think I want to be able to cover both - street and news. Basically I don't have experience in this category at all. Maybe that is why I think I think to have all the range - from wide one to tele
  12. Thanks, I see you do a lot of street reportage. Nice. I guess you submit them all as an editorial? Are these images selling?
