  1. Thank you for responding spacecadet , I have understood that it takes some time for distributor sales to be reported. These have only just been posted, I will see what December brings.The one in May I got paid for, licensed only for that time period. Grethe
  2. Self-reporting has been the mainstay of stock for decades, this is a trust business and in the main, it remains so. Alamy did start to audit some clients and the results were shown in sales, a few months ago. Sadly these are not our clients, they are Alamy's and as such, the way the relationship works is down to Alamy (from our side of the issue). is it how I run my business, hell no......
  3. 2014's revenue is now above 2013, although sales volume has yet to exceed 2013's
  4. Hi all, Alamy is not only used in UK, Following has been found in Norwegian internet publications, distributor sales : http://www.dinside.no/931329/synes-det-er-greit-aa-sporre-om-graviditet-under-jobbintervju ACEXPJ Bubbles Photolibrary http://www.dinside.no/931315/smarthjem-i-kraftig-vekst DABPHG Brian Jackson http://www.dinside.no/931231/hvilket-armbaandsur-bor-du-velge AD6R5D Hugh Threlfall and D335K2 Marc Tielemans http://www.kk.no/livsstil/har-du-lite-sexlyst-30337 CEAFBM Svetlana Khvorostova http://www.kk.no/livsstil/disse-kvinnene-b%C3%B8r-kutte-ned-p%C3%A5-br%C3%B8d
  5. Things looking good this year! Sales volume up 65% and revenue up 104% over 2013 figures!! Still another month to go as well...... John.
  6. RM will not totally disappear, there has been a recent uptick in large sales for exclusive uses or buyouts amongst agencies I work with. Some clients will always need to have exclusivity or they will go back to commissioned work. The whole ethos of branding/advertisiing at the high-end means you sometimes need to have an image that nobody else has. It's only a few months ago that I licensed an industry exclusive, for one year, for my best ever sale...... exclusive use was their main requirement and RF would not have been of any use to them. RF editorial already exists, the whole point of R
  7. Mine haven't changed, still on p 19. I think they've always been there, before and after starting to get sales.
  8. Someone in Winnipeg ordered a print this month. I've also had sales in Quebec and Ontario. The USA market still rules, though, which isn't surprising. An Alamy office in Vancouver would be nice too.
  9. I seem to remember reading somewhere that FAA now has a printer in the UK, so perhaps that market is growing (?). Someone in Kent bought an image for an iPhone case from me this month. It was my first UK sale ever. John, yes they do have a print service here in the UK and since that was introduced I have had 2 UK based sales and that's growth for me. Regards Craig
  10. Late to the party as usual. I dump all of my stuff into one pseudo, with a tiny junk pseudo for deletions. CTR not very clever, but sales increasing. Top 3rd of P3, so not complaining too bitterly. (120 per page and relevant only search).
  11. Are we creating an alternative to the Sin Bin Club? I don't know if it's the new sin bin but it seems to be getting pretty crowded here on page 25. I can't believe I've done SO badly in my photography and keywording so as to end up in the basement. I know what you mean. A lot of thought, a lot of effort, a "surge" of sales that quickly petered out and now I prop up the field. But we know it is possible to still make a worthwhile income - once more into the breach dear friends...
  12. I hope you're not thinking of this one http://blog.imagebrief.com/post/102288528206/whats-with-all-the-royalty-free-briefs#.VHRBlslKyM0 The evidence for RM changing is everywhere, Getty's major change for one, RF editorial licenses on micro..... just the general trend which would be difficult to miss in the wider market. I don't agree RM is on it's death bed, it's not....it's just that RM now has to justify the extra cost involved for the client...any old rubbish as RM might have worked (worked well I am pleased to remember) years ago but times have changed. Textbook publishers tend to be
  13. I too have joined in the BHZ game. My overall CTR is .93, so I will see if this means decent placement. Whether that means more sales, we shall see. Jill
  14. I am up on page 4 now, so shall sit back and wait for the sales to come flooding in! No, quite honestly though, I have been here before, after periods languishing on the wrong side of mid way. At one time I was even checking my ranking starting from the last page as it was not quite so depressing. Has it made any difference, .....I think not!
  15. I don't know about that . I have a very low CTR so I can only relate it to my sales.
  16. IME a couple of sales don't make much difference to it but a fair number over a year or so do, and have.
  17. In the past six months I've managed to raise my Total CTR from 0.12 to 0.49 (higher than Alamy's) and made several sales yet I've slipped backwards another half a page? I'm now languishing on the bottom of page 20. VERY discouraging to say the least.
  18. I GIVE UP!!!!! After six months of conscientious work reviewing my old stuff and creating 25% new stuff, carefully edited, my best pseudonym (my sales etc, very small) has gone from page 13 (of 241) to page 15, my new work a page or two lower and the bulk of my older work (50%) is on the last pages. I use a real search (not BHZ) as a reference and monitor it most weeks; it has been totally stable for last three months since I restuctured my pseudonyms. I don't buy the randomisation argument - it has always been the same images, on the same page (and the ones around it from other contribu

  20. John, Phillipe Do you find your sales are at the bottom end or more mid/upper size? I keep toying with the idea of prints but it doesn't seem worth the effort if the average sale is $5 for a greetings card! I have sold the odd print directly but they have tended to be around 12x8in (30x20cm) Martin
  21. Cheap prices means looking at cheap ordinary stuff. Higher prices evokes a feeling of dealing with quality, originality. Raising your prices might indeed lead to more sales in the fine art business. Not that I'm a fine art specialist, but I do know of one photographer (long time ago though) who sold a lot more after getting the advice of tripling his prices. Cheers, Philippe Your prices look quite similar to mine. How's business?
  22. Wow! I'm not going to read through all 10 pages here to see if I might be be repeating something that's been said already. I've had a few sales early on, but I've never felt that my subject matter is what most middle class people want on their walls at home. Fair enough. Also I stupidly didn't notice that I was paying an annual fee to keep anything more that 25 images on the FAA site. However, my real pet peeve is the quid-pro-quo nonsense we find on FAA. Whenever I would put up some new images or make a sale, I would get a bunch of insincere pats on the back . . . and in turn I was
  23. Thanks guys. I'm still perplexed on the subject. As I said, if the object of the our mission is to generate income for both the agency and photographer, why make a demarcation line between a mobile phone picture and a higher spec compact. Is Alamy missing an income potential here? If Stockimo gets approval and generates sales, then can they not set up another site to accommodate compact camera pictures taken on a better camera with better quality files? And btw Martin my Sony is a Mark 1 with no viewfinder. I believe the later models will take an electronic supplementary but at quite a
  24. Yes. Apart from a few from the early days with unchanged RF status (the ones that Alamy hasn't trawled yet), the only new images I've marked RF in the last four years has been an unattributable slice of victoria sponge which I could conceivably baked myself but didn't (and that assumes that the Crown has no rights in the name); the Union Flag; bomb damage at the V&A; the VR monogram on a postbox; a Victorian hotel and a copy of Rodin's Burghers of Calais. Postscript: I'm only on solid ground with the cake. Probably. Pure landscapes are probably OK but these days I don't bother. It's pro
