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.
