  1. Greetings all, Today my first set of photos has passed QC. I am getting used to working with the image manager and it all makes sense, slowly. However, I do have 3 questions (for now): 1) How can I view my my own portfolio on Alamy? 2) Although in the 'Image manager' it says that I have 3 images on sale, when I view my profile here on the forum, it says '0'. 3) Because I wanted to see how my images look if a potetial buyer is viewing it, I tried to search by contributor but apparently I don't exist (yet?). Is there a delay before ones' images are listed? Any pointers would be most helpful. Thank you, POTR
  2. Hi everyone, I joined Alamy a couple of months ago, and have now got 178 photos uploaded on here. I've very much an amateur rather than professional and I'm obviously not expecting huge sales through this site, but am a little concerned that so far I've only 411 views, and my CTR is 0. I've been careful with key wording, and have read around the forums for general advice, but I was wondering if anyone observed anything specific about my portfolio. I'm about to go on a 9 month trip around the world and plan to take a whole lot more photos! Can't wait Be great to get any views advice from anyone Thanks in advance, Andy My portfolio link is http://www.alamy.com/stock-photography/F8CC489B-FCB5-4B42-B8C1-C13E5F742B00/1/Andrew%20Coleman.html
  3. Hi everyone, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this, but I'd love to have some thoughts/critics on my personal portfolio that I'm finishing to set up. I spent the last few weeks, even months on this and I'd need some external opinions from photographers on the content/feel/layout of the whole thing. Here it is: http://ajourney.slightlyoutoffocus.com Hope it's fine with the forum rules, and if not you can just close down the topic (sorry!) Thanks for any help. Cheers! Mathieu
  4. Hi everyone, I need a little help to make my photos more visible to buyers and would really appreciate an honest critique of my uploaded photos and keywords if you are willing to spare the time. I joined in 2009 and only have 133 photos for sale, a paltry number I know, so uploading regularly is my first way to improve visibility. I have sold three photos ( not a lot I know ) whilst having only 66 photos on the site, so I feel I can produce salable work. I tend to photograph in my local area of Salisbury and the New Forest, UK. Weymouth, the Jurassic coast and Southampton are also potential areas of industry, docklands and landscapes to source new material for Alamy. I rarely travel abroad so travel subjects will be few and far between unless my circumstances change. I now use the Canon 6D and L lenses and have had success with Alamy's QC process on a more regular basis. This has been encouraging in itself so I'm more inclined to add to the millions of photos already on here:) I'm aware the stock industry is a saturated field and prices are almost rock bottom but my photos are better up for sale than hidden away on my hard drive. Thank you in advance for your time and comments. Alan.
  5. This morning, I reached my target of 5000 images, passed Alamy QC, key worded and placed on sale in my portfolio! It has taken me the best part of ten years to achieve this number! Well hears hoping the next 5000 do not take quite as long!
  6. Hi, I've learnt a great deal searching through the forums, and I've created a lot of pseudonyms recently to get a better idea of which of my types of photos are working. I'm in the process of adding more (another of the teachings from the experienced, this is a numbers game to a certain extent!) However, I'd really appreciate anyone who could take a look at my portfolio and give any views on the keywords, standard, the good, the bad and the ugly. Thanks in advance, Fred * Disclaimer: I may not be able to actually supply you with immortality if you review my portfolio. But the intention is there!
  7. Hi everyone Iam new here at Alamy and was wondering if any one coude critique my portfolio to see if its going the right way normally only shooting video but gonna give the Photography side a chance as well. Daniel (NIar)
  8. Hello, I am new here and search didn't give me the wanted result for "portfolio" or "critique"! Would be nice for beginners here, if some of you more experienced contributors could give some hints on newbies portfolios and which images of the specific portfolios might do best here! Here's a link to my portfolio: http://www.alamy.com/stock-photography/A17FF311-4C93-4D2A-BF0B-DDDBBF9EC52B/1/Ren%C3%A9%20Pirker.html Would be great, if some of you could click through my actually 33 images and tell me what you think about and maybe chose your personal favourite out of it?! And maybe one which you absolutely don't like too?! Thanks a lot, really appreciate your support, René
  9. This morning I reached the dizzy milestone of 4000 images in my Alamy portfolio!
  10. From what I can see there are a number of factors that affect stock sales. Since Alamy ensures a minimum quality level is met by all contributors I’ll ignore it as a factor. Subject matter and proper keywords are also clearly important but for the sake of this discussion let’s assume subject and keywords are adequate. Looking through the forum discussions I see constant references to a minimum portfolio size as being an important factor in regular sales, but I also wonder if there isn’t also a time component affecting sales. If say, 3000 images represent the smallest portfolio that will generate consistent monthly sales, how long must those images be posted before they begin to generate a significant number of sales? A month? six months? a year? Also, is 3000 images a fair estimate of the minimum portfolio size needed to generate regular sales? Lynn Palmer lynn-palmer.artistwebsites.com
  11. Hi folks, what is the link to see my own portfolio on Alamy? Thanks in advance.
