  1. Was wondering if anyone could possibly review my portfolio ? https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/bridgetcatterall I joined Alamy in 2016, but have only really been submitting frequently this year. I cover 'live News' when able, mostly in London as strangely its more difficult to find out what's going on locally. However there are so many excellent London photographers, I don't really expect sales unless they sell as stock later (I have had a few sales this way). My local newspapers do not employ photographers, (having made their last remaining tog redundant this year) and ask the public to send in photos for publication, so I can't see any way way they would pay for images ! But I am trying to build up a stock portfolio - sadly no gorgeous and bouncing children to photograph, but nonetheless I am looking to find subjects and topics of interest to document. I enjoy doing this primarily, but would also like to boost sales Thanks to anyone kind enough to take a look ! Bridget
  2. For weeks and weeks i can't seem to update the header image in my portfolio. It takes forever to load and nothing happen at all. How do i go about it?
  3. Morning. I'm Nora Mazzini, from Argentina. I've been at Alamy for a short time and my portfolio is small. But I think it's a good time to ask for a general review, so I don't keep uploading photos in the wrong direction. In fact, I haven't made a single sale in Alamy and I have made a sale in other image banks. Thank you in advance for your help! https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/noramazzini
  4. If you review and comment on my portfolio, I will be grateful. https://www.alamy.com/search/imageresults.aspx?pseudoid={706601A1-732D-4627-B4D6-26E09C02A386}&name=David+Talukdar&st=11&mode=0&comp=1
  5. Hello everyone, I would love to hear any advice and critique on my portfolio. link: https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/arvy Thanks in advance!
  6. I have tried repeatedly tried to set up a banner image for the new Alamy Portfolio page. After selecting the image from those available, all I get is 3 oscillating squares but no image. Is this a known problem?
  7. Can anyone suggest a way of cataloguing uploaded pics on Alamy. Is there any way of bringing photos of the same type or on the same topic i.e. travel, food, transport etc, together on the system. If there is an easy or obvious answer that i should be aware of and am not i apologise in advance.
  8. Hey guys! I'm pretty new to this, and have had a few sales in the last year. But I'm looking to majorly improve what I have up and boost my sales as much as possible. Is a lack of sales just a bulk problem? (which I'm working on, I only have around 250 photos at the moment) - or is it more to do with how I'm tagging and captioning images? If anyone could take a look I'd be really grateful!

  9. Hello, I know that the number of images I have set up is still very small. Nevertheless, I wonder why I generate so few (currently only 1) sales at Alamy. The number of zooms (so far 4) is also low. If the experienced foographers could take a critical look at the pictures and tell me their constructive criticism, I would be happy. Thank you in advance.
  10. Dear Members, I am Fahd from Abu Dhabi, I am only expat not an Arab... I have seen lot of seniors critiquing new members (requested critique) on their portfolios and guide them accordingly. I am wondering if someone might critique mine and say some harsh words to direct me. I know it is too early to ask for critique as I only have couple of hundred pics and same number if views with only 3 zooms so far and no sale... By the way I just joined a month ago
  11. I have been trying to decide whether to use the Adobe Portfolio that comes with the Photography subscription. I know it never hurts to have your images out there on as many platforms as possible, but wonder if it is worth the time an effort. I have a website at the moment (I use Piwigo) but am always considering upgrading to something like Zenfolio, etc. Anyone using the Adobe Portfolio, and if so, what do you think of it? Jill
  12. Hi guys, There are many millions of pictures on ALAMY; how do you think you can help yours to be seing first? tags and titles are important, do you do any kind of marketing of your pictures and portfolio? I personally use social media like Twitter and Google+ but can see any benefit yet. any other advice? thanks have a nice day
  13. Hi forum - looking for some advice improving image sales on Alamy. It's not something I've kept up with but wanting to get back into and hoping to make a few more sales. My portfolio last Summer was mostly events I attended with an interest in photojournalism, although now I'd prefer to look into architecture and conceptual stuff. Does anyone have advice on getting started, and where to improve on my current portfolio? 2 sales so far but my CTR is a little low for my liking. Thanks!
  14. Looking at LR catalog, i noticed a backlog of about 200,000 pics since 2004 , a quarter suitable for Alamy. My workflow is to select a small portion of each folder and upload to Alamy. The idea behind that is to diversify uploading...as soon as i uploaded enough different subjects i come back to previously managed folders and find new files to upload. Making this process, my priority are those files i consider belonging to topics more sellable. How do you guys proceed? Did you end processing your backlog and upload newer shots or you have my same "issue" with many files?
  15. Hello everyone. I'm new at Alamy. Could you take look at my portfolio and give some valuable critics. Thank you. http://www.alamy.com/search/imageresults.aspx?&xstx=0&userid={CA48BF86-825B-409E-8E90-AE3D82059810}&name=Halit+Ölmez&st=12
  16. Hi I'm new to Alamy and haven't made any sales yet, I've only recently started uploading. I believe I understand what I would need to do to increase my chances of getting sales through here, but I wonder if you guys could have a look at my current portfolio to see if I'm going in the right direction in terms of tagging, captioning, etc? So far the part I struggle with the most when uploading is choosing the relevant categories, as they're very limited in numbers. Any thoughts? Thanks
  17. Hey everyone! I've been with Alamy for almost two months and have learnt a fair bit so far. Would like your feedback on my images so far and room for improvement. Cheers Hai
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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!
  23. 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!
  24. 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)
