Hi fellow togs! I'm new to Alamy but not entirely new to shooting for stock. I'm based in London, UK. I've done a bit over the years with other agencies but now due to a change of lifestyle I'm keen to give it a proper go. I must say that the contributors on here are amazingly helpful with their advice. Once I have some expertise worth sharing, I will certainly do so! For now I have a question: How important is the shooting date in searches? eg if I have some great shots of a walrus community from the Arctic Circle shot two years ago, and upload them, do they then get put into the library alongside other material from two years ago, or do they appear as current? As a supplementary question, how far down the list of search results do clients go? Obviously it varies, but is there any point having images from eg two years ago because no client would look that far back? or does none of that matter?
