Hello guys, I'm a 24 year old male student from cologne and just started to upload some pictures to Alamy. About 1 1/2 years ago I startet uploading some pictures I took with my smartphone to a german app called "Eyeem". Since then I uploaded about 500 random pictures without really thinking about my compositions and tags. If pictures pass the Quality-Chheck they are selected for a premium collection wich is accessable for Getty-Buyers. About 113 Pictures made it throug and earned me a total of 250 dollar over the last year. I now started to buy several photobooks and consumed a lot of online courses to step up my photography game (also switched from my Smartphone to Fuji X-E1). I'm also reading a lot in this forum to get an idea of what it takes to sell on Alamy. I now started to upload my first pictures. I really like alamy because of a it's low number of rejections and the community. I couldn't find any other stock plattform with such a nice and large community where everyone is welcome. I figured out that Alamy is mainly a platform to sale editorial pictures. I really like this idea and would like to start capturing editorial topics, but I'm not sure if Alamy is the right place to sell editorials from germany. So i would like to ask, if anyone of you has some experience with this topic or if you would advice me to upload to a german editorial stock agency instead. Stephen
Today I had a OK sale in Germany (a distributor sale). I thought I read somewhere in the forum a while ago that sales in Germany became 'direct sales'. Am I simply dreaming? Have I gone mad? Please correct me if I am wrong.
I'm a little confused here. After setting up my account and uploading my first pictures while on a business trip outside out of Germany I first accessed the site from a German IP today and obviously was redirected to de.alamy.com. This wouldn't bother me but it seems to me as if the German site is for buyers only and when clicking on 'My Alamy' you get redirected to a completely different page than in English. I quickly found two workarounds for this problem, either a VPN with an IP outside of Germany or simply switching the site language to English. Now this doesn't bother me much honestly but I'd assume it might cause some problems for others and cause some confusion. Reading through the forum I noticed that there seems to have been a recent UI update, so I don't know if maybe the German version is just a little behind on those updates or if there are any other reasons.
