  1. Regular sales, but nothing to shout about. And whenever I see the prices fetched I do a Homer Simpson "D'oh"...
  2. I started uploading properly to Alamy around the middle of January this year. The majority of my images are news focused which doesn't go down well in the stock market but in the last year I have had 7 sales, 9,110 views and 18 zooms and that is on a small amount of images (665). Hopefully I will get time in 2014 to start shooting a lot more stock images along side the news stuff which I enjoy. If anybody any constructive criticism of my images please let me know. Happy New Year To You All!
  3. When I started to be a contributor to Alamy with my travel photos I thought the same but I wanted to give a try anyway. A few years later, I am very happy about the results I got since then, despite the general declining sales and growing competition. So, don't surrender! keep taking photos and upload them!
  4. I have just started this October and since then I have the opportunity to see what are all this Alamy is all about. The conclusion so far is It will not be easy for me because my images are 100% travel oriented and it could be around the 20 or 30% of the total Alamy sales. To get a portion of that small cake, where there are already lots of good photographers, it will be difficult and even more in this time of declining sales. In any case for 2014 I will continue to upload more and more images, old and new ones and we will see. Happy New Year from Madrid.
  5. I started mid 2012 so the 4 sales that year were I guess on par for a new starter. 2013 has provided 36 sales, half in the last 3 months so things seem to be picking up nicely & an additional 4,200 images since feb/Mar 2013 to the RM port. From March I was able to spend a lot more time on images here and by July, I also started working seriously on a separate micro port (700+ images). At the moment, Earnings are 50/50 between RM and Micro. As with you Jools, 2013 seems to be the start of something good. Passed my target for mid 2014 in Dec 2013 so can't complain. Just need to knuck
  6. all I can say is how often does everyone check their all their images on google reverse search. They are definitely not getting better in my case and I never said that alamy did not chase them up, but only when we find them which we should not have to do but by the responses I guess no one is bothered so I guess we carry on as we are. As for why do I stay in it, because of the sales I get with other newspapers who do report. If I could check a box to exclude the daily mail I would Kevin
  7. I consider 2013 to be a huge starting point. Sales in 2012 were not great but then I didn't really understand exactly what I should be doing. Now, things are different and I had a 5 times increase over 2012. Things are already in place for the first 6 months of 2014 travel wise with other things being worked on. Hoping that my chosen areas and ideas will work. Saleable subjects have come into play for me and I will be looking to exploit these further in the coming year. What is beginning to frustrate me though is the total lack of sales on Alamy. I get zooms but no further. Ex
  8. It's time to take stock of how the almst over 2013 was in terms of sales. Deecember was an average month for me which is not bad at all considering a few photographers complained about poor or none sales during this month. Talking now about 2013, I am quite happy as, compared to 2012, I got over 50% more sales. I truly hope 2014 may bring more sales and happiness to everyone but, above all, more chances to take new and creative photos! Happy New Year from Barcelona! Stefano
  9. They do buy archival rights for the duration of the article so images are retained on the web for months, but I would hope that Alamy would press for payment in all cases where no sale has ever been reported. My impression is that the DM is getting better at recording sales, while my experience has been that Alamy will chase unreported usage and that payment will eventually result. It's the only reason that I ever look at the DM website!
  10. Ok, I am really getting wound up now. Every time I reverse google search my zooms I find unreported images by the Daily Mail. I can only wonder how many I would find if I searched all my images. And I am not talking about recently used by them as I know it takes time for them and other papers to report, I am talking about going back 6 months plus, and in some cases years . As it stands it does not affect the daily mail nor alamy. Daily mail pay the same every month to alamy and alamy receive the same every month from the daily mail, whether images have been correctly reported or not. The onl
  11. I've had my Sony RX10 camera for more than a week now and to the surprise of many,I still love it! I just noticed I made a sale of an image I took years ago with the Canon G9. It was the first day I had that camera and I had it in my winter coat pocket as I walked in the falling snow to the grocery store. I took pictures of things along the way and I've probably made about 25 sales with various agencies on just a few photos. If I had my DSLR in the cold lugging a heavy camera bag from somewhere,it's doubtful I would have pulled it out.But by the mere fact that I had a small no brainer ca
  12. After a bleak summer and a bleak autumn, December has been my best month for some time. Some nice 3-figure sales and a Christmas Eve sale of the decorations in Barcelona from this time last year. Nothing since the big day but hoping for an end of year rush.
  13. check your previous month's sales...i had a lot of these 16.34/12.56 combinations last week....the 12.56 was the refund of a sale of the image in November, rebilled at 16.34 no mystery km
  14. Still suitably bleak, a few tuppenny newspaper sales, an equally unrewarding distributor sale and a refund recorded last week....... The sales gods dropped a sale in for $16.34 then the grim reaper came along with a refund for $12.56 for the same image. Leaving me with $3.78. Hard Times Ahead. Regards Craig I had that as well - same numbers. But the $12.56 refund was for the original sale about a month ago - in other words, a sale for $12.56 was replaced by a sale for $16.34. Might this be the case with you, too? I guess $16.34 is slightly better than $12.56 ;-)

  17. Still suitably bleak, a few tuppenny newspaper sales, an equally unrewarding distributor sale and a refund recorded last week....... Well, it is now officially winter in the Northern Hemisphere. That might have something to do with it.

  19. No last-minute holiday rush here, that's for sure. Is anyone seeing any boxing week sales?
  20. Merry Christmas and peace to all. May 2014 have more sales and fewer refunds!
  21. Hi to all the regular posters on the forum, as this is my first post on the new system. I have noticed an increase in license's issued through the Alamy Sales team in the United States, on my account, and at very healthy returns considering the general decline in RM License values of late. Thank you guys at Alamy working here in the UK and in the US in difficult market conditions for these results. Have you had good sales in the US market in the second half of this year. Wishing everyone at Alamy and fellow photographers all the best for the coming year. Gordon.
  22. Had one in today, but not via Alamy. Original fee would have been £203 for editorial use (I get 25%). Editorial sales in Japan nearly all good. As they are in much of Northern Europe and USA. United Kingdom: rubbish. How did we let this happen?
  23. That's my ecological and friendly Xmas tree! May 2014 bring more sales to all of you ... but also January, February, March... Stefano
  24. Interesting. I had 16 up to September, but nothing since then. They are nice amounts, which is why I miss them. It's good to hear some people (Ian) are still getting them and they haven't simply stopped for some reason. A couple of years ago I had four big Japanese sales on New Year's Eve. Fingers crossed.
  25. Has anyone had any sales to Japan recently. They have made up a good percentage of my income over the last couple of years but I haven't had any for a worryingly long time. Have they dried up completely or is it just me?
