  1. Third month in a row with b***er-all sales. 'Fed up' doesn't come into it. Going to find a moaners' forum and stop posting here.
  2. Nothing to write home about. Average number of sales, but really poor prices. Not a great pay out either. I'm now waiting for loads of unreported uses to materialise. Onwards and upwards.
  3. Two sales for $151 gross. No distributor. A liitle less zoomed April but nice month in any case.
  4. Three sales for $173 dollars gross, better that the previous month, but I will not be buying my Aston Martin, just yet!
  5. 5 sales for $172 gross. One sale for $5.98 which pulled down the average!
  6. At current levels on average, I am on to beat last year by 20%. But my sales to date are up over 150% on last year at this stage, so very hopeful especially given Kumar's last sentence
  7. 4 sales for over $200 gross, one over $100 which was very pleasing.
  8. Sale numbers up by 34%, Gross income up by 5%, numbers of images on sale up by 15% c/w the first 4m of last year. I usually find that sales improve through the year, particularly the last 4m of the year Kumar
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Look for all your Calendar sales that come in these days here: http://www.browntrout.com/archives/ wim
  14. 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
  15. First time I've had three sales come through on the same day. Heading in the right direction at last.
  16. 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). So whilst th

  19. 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
  20. I have 9 images so far in Stockimo and got one 4.0 but no sales....but just started.
  21. Highest is 3.7 sadly no sales :-( More of my Stockimo pics here
  22. 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)
