  1. Just had my first 3 images pass QC so now I need to learn the process here. Printed the AIM instruction manual and will read that tonight. Bookmarked a video which I will watch at a time of day that works with my SAT internet, think very slow. So if anyone has suggestions to info I can find on the forms I will follow your advice, promise. I did shoot stock when I first got started in photography , think K25 and Mamiya 645, then I photographed a friends wedding and got a check! That lead to 30+ years of commercial and portrait work. Now I am retired and free to shoot for me so along with a fine
  2. Really good advice for photographers, from an illustrator. Read the text before watching the video. https://fstoppers.com/originals/what-can-photographers-learn-illustrator-fstoppers-interviews-tyler-jacobson-498766
  3. What's the consensus on the Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 lens? I have been shooting with primes since I got my Sony A7rii about a year and a half ago. I have the Sony Zeiss 35mm f/2.8, the Sony Master FE 90mm f/2.8 macro, and a Rokinon 12mm fish-eye lens, and have also been using legacy Nikon and Olympus lenses with a couple of different adapters (the Zuiko 50mm, 28mm and 200mm's from my old OM-1 film days and my Nikon 20mm, 50mm and lensbaby). I like using primes and find that my favorite lens on the camera is the Nikon 20mm, with the 90mm Macro a close second. The 35mm is a great walkin
  4. Hello everyone, I would love to hear any advice and critique on my portfolio. link: https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/arvy Thanks in advance!
  5. I tried to piggyback onto an older thread but that didn't really work, so here's my query regarding upgrading my computer to deal with the 42MP Sony RAW files and the latest versions of LR & PS CC. I have a late 2013 13" MacBook Pro Retina, 512GB SSD with an Intel i7 processor and 8GB RAM (not upgradeable) and a late 2011 iMac (128GB SSD & 1TB HD), with an Intel i5 (I think) and 4GB RAM upgradeable to 16GB. My iMac is still working well enough, though it's slow, but my MacBook Pro is just limping along. I can't replace them both at once so I am going to replace that laptop
  6. Hi everybody, I have got into stock photography about 8 months ago. I have joined Alamy and several other agencies since then. Even though I have made many sales on every single agency I have uploaded to, I still haven't made a single one on Allamy. I have only had 4 zooms in 8 months as well. I don't seem to understand what is the issue? Is it just really hard to sell on here or am I doing something wrong? Thanks to you all!!
  7. Thought I would share this very useful summary of copyright developments over time from DACS : https://www.dacs.org.uk/latest-news/copyright-uncovered-photographs?category=For+Artists&title=N&utm_source=DACS+General+Mailing+List&utm_campaign=f7a41f8e79-DACS_newsletter_Q1_2018&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_de159500fe-f7a41f8e79-223246869&mc_cid=f7a41f8e79&mc_eid=abf8554838 https://www.dacs.org.uk/knowledge-base/factsheets/copyright-in-photographs Marc
  8. 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!
  9. I’m a new contributor to Alamy (with a whopping three images added so far!) and was looking for some advice as I start diving in more and creating a portfolio of images here. (Hopefully this information is useful to Alamy veterans too!) How many total images do you have in your library? About how many images do you sell on an average month? What’s the average sale price for your images? Do you list your images as RM, RF or a mix of both? Are your images exclusive to Alamy? And finally, what do you know now about the submission process tha
  10. Hi everyone, After 5 years of light dabbling in selling work on Getty, I've decided to branch out and take stock photography a bit more seriously. On Getty last year, the average sale price for the month was wildly different, ranging anywhere from pennies to $25 or so for the highest month. With around 150 images in my portfolio (I added a bunch mid-year) my total sales of just over $500 averaged out to about $2 or $2.50 per image for my entire portfolio. I've just started a portfolio on Alamy this week (with a whopping 3 images so far!) and was wondering i

  12. 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 advic
  13. Starting a new thread cause I have a ton of questions, and I will keep them all here. A couple years ago I ventured in to the stock area. Put 10 images with one of the smaller RF agencies. A year ago I put 4 images with Alamy, 2 RM, 2 RF, then decided to wait and consider further options and build a PF. I am happy to say I made my first RM sale a month ago, and now am ready to upload more to Alamy. So many of the questions will pertain to that. The 10 images all RF at the competitor have had around 10 sales, netting me $13 and change in 2 years. 1 RM Alamy sale with only 4 images uploaded, net
  14. I am looking at purchasing a Nikon D810 for landscape photography, can any current users of this camera recommend a suitable lens to go with the D810, keeping in mind that it is mainly for landscape photography, i have heard that the 14 to 24 is a great lens is it? or is there a better lens? Thank's to all. Paul.
  15. Hi everyone. I am relatively new here. I joined around April this year. After a few weeks I had my first sale for a total of $134, and since then nothing. I have also noticed that the amount of zooms I am getting is very low. This month so far 0! For you more experienced contributors, what am I doing wrong? It may also be nothing, but I would really appreciate some advice. http://www.alamy.com/stock-photography/C2D9A136-7CF6-4E3E-916A-A8BFE487D575/Stephen%20Allen.html Thanks for your help, I think I need all I can get Steve
