  1. Just about my running average for number of sales at 10, but income rather less at $240 ($5.78 to $71). Rather more positively, the 1st May brought my zoom total up to 48, a personal best.
  2. I don't usually have reason to post in the "How was your..." threads, but I've been pleased with the three reported, and one unreported, sales this month. Gross revenue was only $78, however, but quite encouraging, nonetheless. Gruffydd
  3. I have recently seen some sales at even numbers in usd, like 100 or 90 usd which probably have been sold by Alamys us office. I like that, but I also had one sale for 15 usd. I don't like that number but it was refunded the very next day! Great.
  4. I've had three sales to date where I'm the only supplier on Alamy for a specific subject (OK, garden plant). I've also had a reasonable number of zoomed images recently where the search has yielded less than 5 results, mine included. It probably pays to be a specialist but the downside is I don't get many views and the returns don't reflect the scarcity of the subjects. But that's the nature of general stock photography.
  5. Look for all your Calendar sales that come in these days here: http://www.browntrout.com/archives/ wim
  6. I’m privy to a certain amount of good info and/or advice from my two main agencies, and it certainly helps as far as current trends are concerned, both editorial and commercial. I’m also up to speed on the needs of the fiction book industry via another agency. All this info is, in my opinion, a lot better than anything currently being offered by Alamy. “Man or woman at home relaxing in the garden with tea or coffee after working in the garden e.g. sitting in a deckchair or on a bench.” That’s the kind of shot anyone could do, so if just 1% of the contributors had a go, that will pro
  7. First time I've had three sales come through on the same day. Heading in the right direction at last.
  8. Eminently sensible Ann, when shooting for a particular customer. But in the context set by the article I'm quoting, the statement is more concerned with stock in general, re: knowing what to shoot in anticipation of future sales versus having to be told what to shoot. dd The (best) photographers (in commercial stock) get told a lot of advice/art direction/trends/styling trends by their agencies...it just happens that two of the top commercial agencies are either finished a weekend meeting (Miami) or are probably just breaking to get to the bar as I write (London).

  11. 900+ images at Stockimo. 8 toprated with a 4.0, and 4 sales totalling 240 dollar in a little more then a year now... Regards, Arthur
  12. I have 9 images so far in Stockimo and got one 4.0 but no sales....but just started.
  13. Highest is 3.7 sadly no sales :-( More of my Stockimo pics here
  14. Apologies for taking this on a slight tangent... One of the reasons I find it hard to use the 'How was your Month' thread is that most contributors don't post total images on sale as well. If you go by the link on their forum profile then you only get one of their pseudonyms showing. To me total sales is only useful if you know total images across all pseudonyms. I've tried to find away to search across all contributor pseudonyms but can't. I guess only Alamy have that info. Michael (No pseudonyms in use)
  15. This is a fairly random business, I think I would be more surprised if sales came in neatly spaced apart.
  16. I always thought that sales came in clusters because there was some sort of back-office batch processing.
  17. Matt, I started off on Alamy with a D80. Looking back on the files from that camera now there is a clear difference between those and newer cameras. I recently went back into my archives to see if there was anything I'd like to process with the latest RAW processor. I found that the files simply couldn't handle much shadow recovery and any adjustments made the files quite noisy. To tie in with what you said about them being images you really like...when I started to get sales it wasn't my faves that appeared. In fact about 50% of the time it was simpler ones that appeared. Technically
  18. Seeing regular sales is encouraging rather than having to wait 1 - 3 months for a statement. I wish all my agencies reported in real time like Alamy. Pearl
  19. Maybe Alamy tends to invoice at a certain time of the month? I don't get enough sales to spot a reliable pattern. Maybe some of the more regular sellers can comment?
  20. Likewise. Overnight passes (all between 10am and noon) all week for me too and just about to go over 5000. Having sales keep pace would be nice.
  21. Hi all! I'm pretty new to stock and I know I've got a long way to go before I'm more likely to make sales, especially regularly and that i'm even further from that. But can anyone let me know if I'm on the right track with how I'm already doing things? For example captioning and key-wording? Criticism will be taken on board and is truly appreciated! Many thanks
  22. Congratulations Betty - may many sales follow! Michael
  23. Thanks for this post, where you find image? I have not see sales report in my Stockimo app yet.
