  1. Hello from California!!

    Hello! I just started uploading photos and want to say Hi! I'm new here and would love and appreciate any tips or feedback. I have seen experienced members critiquing new members on their portfolios to help guide them accordingly. I am wondering if someone might critique mine and be so kind to direct me on the right path. I'll start reading the forums too, but if anyone has any words of wisdom, newbie mistakes to avoid, I'd love to hear it. Thank you so much!!!, Felicia
  2. 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

  4. Portfolio critique

    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
  5. Critique of my images please

    I rarely sell anything on Alamy and would love it if anyone more experienced in these matters could help me look at the following: I have 449 images on sale. - I've built up my images over the years, so subject matter (and probably quality of image and quality of usefulness to buyers) is variable. But is it really so wide of the mark? - Recently I overhauled most of my keywords on every image. Are they now good enough? I suspect not. - Do I need more images to make a difference? - Or just better images? - My CTR has always been low 0.11. (Although last month was 0.54, after finishing keywording changes.) What should I been aiming for and how do I get there? - In spite of being a photographer, having had images on Alamy for years and having microstock on other sites, I still don't have the faintest idea what, if any, of my images should be Rights Managed. Everything recent has simply been put on as RF, as I "thought" that would lead to more likelihood of sales. My username is Philip Dickson (There is a variant username with "Colours" which I have used for some model shots) I'd very much appreciate a critique of my Alamy presentation as all my best efforts, including many hours spent re-keywording recently have yielded no return. Thanks, Phil
  6. 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.

  9. Portfolio Critique

    Hello, I am new here and search didn't give me the wanted result for "portfolio" or "critique"! Would be nice for beginners here, if some of you more experienced contributors could give some hints on newbies portfolios and which images of the specific portfolios might do best here! Here's a link to my portfolio: http://www.alamy.com/stock-photography/A17FF311-4C93-4D2A-BF0B-DDDBBF9EC52B/1/Ren%C3%A9%20Pirker.html Would be great, if some of you could click through my actually 33 images and tell me what you think about and maybe chose your personal favourite out of it?! And maybe one which you absolutely don't like too?! Thanks a lot, really appreciate your support, René
