  1. I'm thinking that much of this is comparative. Having travelled to Tanzania and Kenya travelling on local transport and also walking the streets of Manchester, UK or Havana, Cuba (felt remarkably safe there) or even the back streets of Ercolano near Naples, Italy (where I did genuinely worry, hiding my camera and rapidly walking in the opposite direction to the 40 or so people surrounding the one police car in a back alley!) I guess walking around Barcelona would feel relatively normal compared to someone who had only ever been to their local prosperous small town. I really appreciate the
  2. Thanks, Spacecadet! I found Alamy email, they say I should find the payout in my balance within December...do they specify "DACS" or is showing like the other sales?
  3. I believe that they have to represent a "body of work." For instance, I have a lot of old images taken in Latin America that I like to think are interesting as well as old. Archival images do sell. I've had several license, including one last month. As to whether or not the "archival" designation limits sales, it's difficult to say. I would imagine that it does in some cases. I guess it depends on how badly the buyer wants a particular image and how scarce it is.
  4. Perhaps somebody could explain the meaning of this to me I have sales from October listed as balance carried forward and yet my cleared balance from earlier is below the payment threshold. When does the balance carried forward become cleared balance and when can I expect payment?
  5. Just searched for "My Name/Alamy" at Google Books and see that I have a photo in a book about Mindstorms that will be published in January, 2016. Something to look forward to in my future sales. Edit: Added photo
  6. Are these the payments for members who opted for Alamy to collect their DACS dues? I went down that route for this year but nothing showing in my Alamy account other than normal images sales.
  7. I added new sales for 2014 but the amount I received was slightly down. Don't understand why - perhaps it's something to do with a new interpretation about Worldwide Usage. But heck, it's still a welcome boost to the earnings! Thanks DACS!
  8. Mine landed in my bank account a couple of days ago, and it's considerably higher than last year's. For some reason, I made more UK sales than usual last year, so that probably has something to do with the increase. I got an e-mail from Alamy not long ago saying that the three TV claims that I left in their hands didn't fit DACS's criteria, so they have apparently fizzled out.
  9. Everyone seems to be getting more than last year - mine's gone down £50, but I've just remembered Alamy are handling the TV sales this year. It's be interesting to see how much I get from that. And when.
  10. A while ago, I removed the Alamy link from my website, preferring to try and get a better price by licencing images directly. My sales at Alamy suffered a slump, so you can draw your own conclusions from that. Within the last week, I decided to add the link again, just to see what would happen. A couple of days later, up pops a sale for the grand sum of $19.71, see details below. Country: Worldwide Usage: Personal use Media: Non-commercial, one time, personal/home use Start: 28 November 2015 End: 28 November 2020 I have contacted member services regarding this sale, as it looks to
  11. How do they notify you? They had me fill in the form earlier this year. Email, simply a payment from paypal, or does it show up in your sales stats? Jill I haven't applied for affiliation with them yet, Jill. I believe that payment options are by cheque or direct deposit. Check the FAQ's. Hi John. I was actually talking about the DACS payment. Haven't checked out Access Copyright yet. Jill DACS was direct deposit. I got an e-mail from them two days ago saying that they were processing my claim, and it landed in my bank account today. Same process as last

  15. Yes I've had searches for my name but afraid there is no evidence of specific sales made as a result. Maybe they were bored that afternoon, waiting for Virgin Media to call them back. Oh, wait .. that's my angry face again. Richard.
  16. Me too. But in the same way as with images you will need a niche production as the market is flooding / will flood. Sales of more ordinary videos more frequent just a year ago. A niche production of high quality and very soon 4k to 8k to stand out. Nothing wrong with the 12-25 secs video clips, however, you will be surprised how short video clips are used in video productions. You can often find your own examples by a Google Image search, it is often able to find video clips inside a production on the Internet.
  17. Had two nice sales pop in today too! Almost at the gross total from all of last month! Would be nice to finish the year on a good note.
  18. Two direct sales popped up today, one repeat-seller and one that has never licensed before. Encouraging start to the last month of 2015.
  19. 90% of my sales income since Y2K are from old scanned slides - maybe i better scan a lot more of my old slides rather than go out and shoot DSLR
  20. 23 sales for $1220, one of the best months of the year. Thank you Alamy.
  21. Below average, 5 sales for $133 gross. Following the trend of low pricing per sale.
  22. Worst month this year..... 3 sales. But looking on the bright side...............it'll be the DACS payout shortly.
  23. Good to hear from you Chris! Yeah, no agency is ever going to compete with client based work :-) Emailed ya by the way! The day we find an agency that can be trusted 100% will be the day hell freezes over (sorry Alamy). They all have too many agendas, shareholders and investors etc who want more and more of the pie! In fairness, most have been doing really well of late and that includes Alamy..... cheers Alamy, credit where credits due!! Agree! going good here as well and in all the RM, RF and micro. I can't complain. Even two outright copyright sales during November. Oh I
  24. Hello folks, I was recently thinking about RF. I think Alamy is loosing a lots of sales just because it is allowed to submit RF photos also to Microstock. I understand that on the other hand Alamy want to get as much images as possible and is therefore also inviting Microstock photographers. I think the solution could be to create a extra section on Alamy in the kind of Stockimo. It could be a place linked to Alamy where contributors can submit all their RF photos that are also available on Micros. I think this would be great for us, Alamy and costumers. + Costumers that are on Alamy R
  25. 3 sales for $132 gross - enought to keep me happy and motivated.
