  1. Many congratulations that's a huge amount of work you have done and a high sales hit rate!
  2. all microstock agencies would accept your work, your pictures are well edited and you know what you are doing, I am sure that agencies would approve most of them! I am not defending other agencies, I am pretty much saying that your portfolio would do a lot more from a single microstock agency, the biggest one and its not iStock It's true. Microstock agencies such as Shutterstock now accept secondary editorial work. But usage is limited. Most documentary photographers of Keith's standing are professionals, or have a pro background. Why would they want to support a system that i
  3. Except for one, the sales were non-editorial, corporate website (travel-related, I'd say), so probably not CN. The gods must have been in a rare mood. Full moon as well, so that might have had something to do with it. Sure would be nice if we saw more bulk sales like this.
  4. Shoot images that clients want to use. How many sales will you get from re-enactment meetings?....not many. I don't see any real lifestyle images of 'modern' Russia in your portfolio, no images of people doing business etc. Plant images with no latin names just won't cut it, you need to identify the species or cultivar. You need to look at what's used by clients and see how you can provide some of those images. Thanks! I will try... After all there is no other way just try. But how can I look at pictures that are used by clients of Alamy? Is it possible? At other microstocs there are

  6. sure! lets make some more maths, on the screenshot we can see 533 sales this year, his all time RPD is close to 70$ 533 sales x 70 rpd x 0.5 photographer commission / 6 months = 3100$ / month even that is nothing for 27k files, there is one major stock agency that would do you that amount with 3-6k files only (not even going to talk about the submission here at Alamy comparing to other agencies)
  7. Luis, I'm sure Keith got many fewer sales when he first started with Alamy since he would have had fewer images on sale. I tried to look at his images with the earlier reference numbers but I can't find any way to move back in a portfolio more than a few pages at a time. Is there a way to move to the last page?? Maybe something to suggest to Alamy if there is no way. Anyway, my point is that he is probably making a very good income now with 23, 602 images. I know he works hard! Paulette
  8. Wow! That'll take some beating. Very well done to you and to John. Answering the OP question is sadly all too easy for me at present: my max. is the same as my min. Not too tricky to work out! Ditto. But quite a few zooms (for me at any rate). Allan

  10. On Alamy, 24 sales @ $69.23 14th November 2008. I think it was TES but not sure. Had much better days with other agents where they've reported a book or website.
  11. Who can tell me how to sell at Alamy at all? Cannot understand why there are just a few sales. Do not know what is needed to increase sales. :-(
  12. Conde Naste sales popped in today, so that may have been your buyer. And my AOL sales appeared on the third this month. But to answer your question, I had six sales on January third which is my record.
  13. This probably falls into the "general positivity" category, so I thought I would share. I had 12 sales (RM, non-distributor) pop up today, which I believe is the most I've ever had in one day. Mind you, they were low. My net -- assuming no refunds -- will be about $210. Still, it was encouraging to see the high volume since it compensates somewhat for falling prices. Hopefully, this is the start of a trend. Eleven of the sales look to be to the same buyer. Just wondering, what is the most sales you've had thru Alamy on a single day?
  14. I don't dare consult the death clock in case it tells me that I'm already dead. Seriously, I'm in the back 25 now (if Lady Luck is with me). I actually had one of those big (these days) 2039 textbook sales pop up a few days ago. Please keep them coming, Alamy, and I'll be sure to leave you something in my will.
  15. The newspaper scheme does give you regular sales, albeit for a pittance. I assume that this assists your ranking which can lead to other more profitable sales. (I have just received notification of a license for a popular scheme image to a non scheme paper for about 5x the scheme fee; not the first time this has happened). Of course we don't know if these small value sales make much impact on ranking, the magic formula remains a mystery. Currently in but considering my options, it's not simple.
  16. Thanks, Jill. No, I didn't know. No, I think you are right, John. They probably have (taken / been given) the right to do so. But from the photographer's point of view it is a violation and a giving away of rights. I only sell very few photos to British newspapers, price is low and the sales always result in massive uses other places that are difficult to deal with. I think I will leave the newspaper scheme, it is not worth it..
  17. And vice versa. I mostly supply RF images. I've had about a dozen RF images sold with usage restrictions identical to RM. Clever sales department. But I agree: on Alamy license type doesn't make a big difference, although for me, RF license prices tend to be higher. Just curious, don't you have to have property and model releases to sell mostly RF (if it's buildings, trademarks, and people)? Yes. If images contain people and I have releases I go with RF. If the image contains unreleased people, private property or trademarks (that can't be removed) it's RM. Buildings are a

  21. Paul, look up the 10,000 hour rule. Its an idea but its not far off the mark. As for training, books etc. Look at how you progressed in your day job, mentoring, evaluation, feedback, measures, results, training, books. See how much of that is actually training (courses) and books. Very little. Nothing prepares you for your first peer review. I remember my first code review when I was first out of university, I had a degree and was completely shattered by it. Wind forward 10 years and sitting in the editors office when I got my first months review there. I learned more in both those hours tha

  24. Having a varied selection of attractive, appealing (esp. at thumbnail size) and saleable images (as you have) always helps! Well done on your sales so far (many more to come, I'm sure) and welcome to the forum .
