  1. Looking back over my 2013 sales, I see now that I have two other German leases that were non-distributor, so it looks as if it's a mixed bag. Consequently, I'm going to stay signed up for the German distributors. It's a tangled Web we've woven.
  2. Most recent: Country: German Speaking Countries Usage: Editorial Media: Textbook - print only Industry sector: Non Profit/ Education Sub-Industry: School/College Print run: up to 10,000 then 3 months later, exact same photograph: Country: Germany Usage: Editorial Media: Textbook - print only Industry sector: Non Profit/ Education Sub-Industry: School/College Print run: up to 10,000 similar amounts both times, three-figure sum. I like German sales. dd
  3. Yes, I un-ticked Germany for distributor sales a long time ago (and more recently I un-ticked every other country - too many poor fees). Chris
  4. I agree with Charly. $700 sounds quite low to me since I've had a number of one-time non-exclusive editorial sales that exceeded that amount. Back in the last century ASMP would recommend 3x the licensing fee or the amount you might expect the image to earn over a lifetime. Granted some images earn more than others but I'd think a buy-out fee somewhere between $3000 and $10,000 per image is fair amount. Of course most clients won't pay that much which is why it's Better if they simply choose the images they're likely to use than buy-out the entire take.
  5. My apols, Paulette is correct - they do report before they pay, but there is a variable duration wait before the sale is reported (in my case from no delay to 3 months). Looking at my last 4 sales the date of invoice is the same as the date reported under the Summary of images sold.
  6. I was mostly an agent for about thirty years, but have pretty much reverted to being a photographer these days. Put together a quite a few deals over the years; every one was different, but the format remained similar. Actual buy-outs were rare, extended rights over a longish period more likely. Perhaps I might have been a little hasty in suggesting any figures; might be too high, might be too low, only you and your client have any idea about the potential earnings of the photos. Do lots of other photographers have coverage? Non-mainstream historic buildings can make sales, but the pix do
  7. Thanks, Bryan. I actually found another zoomed one on a Brazilian webpage.... The thing is there is no way about when and from which agency were downloaded the photos...both of them were already downloaded in the past from other websites. Another thing, the client has 3 months in which to pay, but shouldn't sales be reported under Net Revenue>Date of Invoice? Please advise, if you know more...thanks!
  8. I think it's a major revenue stream for Alamy but not for individual photographers. A few $6 sales a month isn't a major revenue stream.
  9. That is a really encouraging number! I wish we could say the same for the newspaper *scheme*. Or can we? wim I can't share average figures for the newspaper scheme however, you should think of it this way: The newspaper scheme is UK only The UK is our second biggest market Sales into the newspaper industry is one is one of our major revenue sources Over 98% of photographers are opted IN This all means that if you are not opted in, you're effectively in the 2% who are removing a major potential revenue stream from their Alamy portfolio. We'd therefore highly recommend optin

  11. Well I'll see how the Distribution sales go, although with being new won't be many I suspect. Yet I'm still leery about the newspaper scheme and w/o numbers, there's no incentive to change my mine.

  13. 50% of my sales over the last year have been through distributors, including some of the biggest - and some of the smallest. The best come from Japan, so if you're thinking of opting in selectively, I'd certainly include Japan.
  14. Not used the sweep feature on NEX, but presume that the output would be a JPG, rather than raw? Have taken a few manually without a tripod, stitching in PS. Passed QC OK, but no sales to date. Good looking shots from Philippe, understand how they have been commercially successful, and not necessarily subject matter that I would have thought of for the technique, thanks for posting.
  15. Callie and Phil and all: The annoying quid pro quo business on these print sites is most distasteful. I've decided not to involve myself with this, and it may result in my closing my accounts at both FAA and Artflakes. Now, with this threat of having my images stollen, I have another strong reason for pulling out. This has been why I don't put images on Flicker and the like. I've said before, I don't see my images as having strong sales potential in these print agencies. If you have good landscapes or nature images, FAA should work for you. If your "Art" images are more avant garde an
  16. I too wonder how they manage to function.... Got a lot of likes and follows from other artists on the site but also don't understand the search system. No sales, but then POD doesn't seem to work for me, tried Redbubble, Photo4me, and the free upload on FAA, nothing sold
  17. Yup, without doing a rigorous analysis, I would say that the majority of my sales come from shots taken within a 20 mile radius of home. Would probably do a lot better if I lived in New York or London, but I quite like it here.... However variety is the spice of Alamy life, and you need to spread your wings a little. Why not fill in the location tab on your profile?
  18. What do you mean, Mark? Can you see recent sales using the image search function? How?
  19. Even worse, if that soothes - 1 sale for $13 I think I can trump that with Zero sales lol I'm not unhappy at all by that though. I'm a relative minnow to this, so I don't expect it to pick up until I start putting up the numbers of quality images. However, serving a 28 wait on submissions is killing my flow at the moment. Too scared to add anything to the queue of 65 images I have waiting. With that said, I envy the numbers being thrown about in this thread, Makes me excited.
  20. I'm definitely seeing more sales in the $20-$35 range. Although I also had three good ones (over $100) in August, which helped bring the average price up.
  21. Ed, do you think that removing some of the similars (e.g. the car shots and Lake Powell) might improve matters? Just a casual observation from someone who knows b-all about CTR. Cheers. Both the car shots and the Lake Powell images are newly uploaded...so they should be mid-ranked for the next 6 months and should not be a factor in CTR yet. My other observation (especially with the car shots) is that "similiars" are based on keywords....not on the appearance of images. If one does a search on SCCA Car Race, then yes, I have multiple similars with 428 results out of a pool of 483 images.
  22. Lisa, if SONY RX-100's small size helped you capture your photos, especially after earliest page, that's a definite plus - strikes me mainly as a good example of how a photographer who gets to STRONG (news) situations, and uses STRONG skills to effectively capture the scenes, can make STRONG sales - even when using a basically adequate camera.
