  1. Hello mates, My name is Miguel Moya Moreno and I have been a collaborator of the agency for a few years. I am writing to you because I have seen one of my photographs published in an internet publisher and with the caption naming Alamy but it does not appear on my sales list. I'd like to know if the same thing has ever happened to anyone. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
  2. Anyone else feel a bit deflated when they don't receive an early morning dopamine boost from seeing a sale on Alamy? I know its a bit sad and rather pathetic but it is so much harder getting out of bed on these grey mornings without that little pick-me-up! Do you think I could possibly sue on medical grounds? 😉
  3. Hi everyone, I haven’t seen any discussion about the subject in the forum, so here goes. Has anyone taken part in Alamy’s POTM on Twitter or Instagram? If yes, then did you see an increase in your sales or do you feel you gained exposure? What are your thoughts about POTM? Thanks for sharing your experience! Take care, Aurore
  4. Hello, greetings from Spain! I would like to know your opinion. I have been in stock photography for a while, although lately I am working more on it. With a portfolio of about 1,300 images, I have sales in several agencies, every day, but on Alamy I have only had 1 sale, in the last year. I know that the best thing about Alamy is not the amount of sales but the commission, but I've been thinking for a while that something I'm not doing well on the web !! ?? All my photographs are as optimized According to my dashboard, my portfolio has 3780 visits and 0.24 CTR. Any ideas? Many thanks! My
  5. Hi, I am a contributor at Alamy and I have a question about my account. I recently started shooting in the studio with models and I want to upload this photos (with Model Releases). Since my current account is comprised mainly from landscape photos, should I create a new account for people photos? If I upload people photos to this account will it affect my sales potential in any way ? Thanks !
  6. Dear fellows, I am Jahangir Alam Onuchcha from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Its been a long time as a contributor, since 10 Mar 2016 I started contributing. My Portfolio: https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo/onuchcha.html I have earned more than a thousand dollars from Alamy so far. My sales were medium, but some were sold every month. But September 2019 to April 2020 my Alamy sale is too low, and it's horrible, only 2 sales (16$). I did not understand. At first I thought it was normal, at the same time my other agency is selling well. I am waiting, wait, and wait...
  7. how long does it take after a payment was made for it to clear? I had a sale in feb 2020 that still hasn't cleared yet.
  8. Hello team, I'd appreciate any general feedback on my portfolio. I just set it up and tried to create some galleries based on subject matter. My content is all travel and animal based, which I understand isn't what is in demand. Thanks for your time and comments! https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/lexholder
  9. Hi guys, i'm a long time contributor, my collection is 80% editorial, i think could to have a better performance of sales. than now (5-7 pics/month) I don't spend so much time in Stock business, i know but welcome any recomandation for a better results. Thank you.
  10. A strange situatiom popped up yesterday... I received a direct message from a would-be image buyer in S.E. Asia. He had searched online to find a point of contact for me, as he wanted to negotiate an indefinite term of use for a rights-managed image, rather than Alamy's max. 5 year term. The image in question is a portrait of a high-ranking Tibetan Buddhist lama (yes, really) taken in India 3 years ago. Apparently this lama has a following in neighbouring countries and his followers hoped to print and display the image in perpetuity at their temple or meeting place.
  11. I've looked at the other topics discussing this issue, and none seemed to be exactly on point. I just got a bunch of photos passed of a tourist attraction here in the US. Not a vastly popular one, but in an area where surprisingly I've licensed a fair number on Alamy and some via my site on Photoshelter too - I think that these are two places where editors go for those hard to find images. I'm tempted to tick "exclusive to Alamy" because they are not the types of images I expect to sell often, hence I've uploaded them here, and I don't expect they'd be a big draw on either of the
  12. I have come across some subjects where there are very few images available, one even with no images. So my immediate thought was to upload new ones to fill that gap, but a search on all of alamy shows no search queries for past 12 months. Should I still bother here? Any thoughts?
  13. OK, I'll go first. Dreadful month: five sales, netting me <$56. 😞 To add insult to injury, my best-value sale of the month was refunded the day after it was invoiced and re-invoiced at 20% less. Uniquely in years, not one UK Newspaper sale. 3Bs, a J and a P. I've been uploading a lot; clearly just not what buyers want to buy.
  14. Hey all, it's about a year ago that I made my first submission to Alamy. With over 6000 photos online and with only a few sales yet I'm thinking about improving keywords and captions. Do you have any ideas what I can do better, should avoid or what mistakes I should definitely correct? Please note that I have already read the guides on keywording on Alamy. Or do I just need more patience? Cheers, Caspar
  15. Hi, l have been editing my photos description and keywords to try and improve there searchability. The bar at the top of the editing window remains static and will not turn green from orange, green indicating good discoverability. Can somebody give me advice on how to improve this. Thank you. Chris
  16. Hi First post on here & I would be very grateful for any feedback you may have to offer. SALES DECLINE My sales up to the end of 2018 were increasing roughly in line with the number of photos online, achieving an average of just under a sale a week last year. However my sales for Jan-Mar 2019 have been almost nil and I am at a loss to explain this sudden drop. I would have expected them to remain constant even without the 1000+ images I have keyworded from late 2018 onwards. FYI I am still getting roughly the same zooms. Has anyone else experienced a drop in sales wit
  17. It seems my total revenues on Alamy started to decline as soon as i converted quite all my pics to RF. I only left some pics to RM whose are the ones which sell better at the moment. Anyone experiencing the same?
  18. Since 1 week i'm having 0 for sales, zooms ...no views at all! I'm a bit worried... am i banned or did something wrong my ranking decreased a lot? Anyone having the same behaviour? It's the first time in about 3 yrs on Alamy something like that is happening. CTR is a bit above average
  19. Oh my goshhh! It's snowing hard in Florence (more on the mountains/hills around) and i'm strongly tempted to go out on Sat/Sun to grab awesome stock pics (and videos). It's not so common to have snow like this in our city and around. The "issue" is that i will change my house just tomorrow and this weekend will be full for me and my partner managing all dressed and stuff on the new home. We also have children and this is the first time they will sleep in the same house together (me and my partner are divorced from respectively wife/husband). I'm tempted to go shooting outsi
  20. The first of the year - and surprise, surprise, it's a 'Presentation or newsletter'.
  21. Hello dedicated photographers! This topic may have been questioned before long ago. But I need clearer answers based on your own experience, not theoretical one. Is it right RF photos are tend to get more sales than RM these days? Because I saw usual buyers are often from repeater companies, like The Sun, BBC, Guardian, and other media from British and Europe. This makes me assume ordinary buyers from another countries are prefer to buy RF than RM. What do you think? Thanks
  22. Ten sales, $120 net. Also a refund from October rebought for $7.50 more net.
  23. (Rubbing hands with glee) three sales dropped in today......hope it’s not done. Betty
  24. I have sales that remain uncleared since c June 2018...do some customers have credit lines? I would have expected Alamy to demand payment upfront, especially when these are relatively small amounts?
  25. Hey everyone I was wondering when you guys got your first sale. Im new to this so i was wondering if anyine wanted to give me some insights. Thank you!
