I had one that got me 22k in total (but spread over 4 years).

Need one of those right now. Badly.

I've had two biggies here, a $1200 (in 2015) and a $1600 (in 2008), gross.

 

My $1600 sale has also licenced multiple times now, and there are 67,892 competing images here of the same thing.

850.00 (gross) back in January 2017.  It was my fourth month with Alamy, first photo sold, and I had less than 300 photos submitted at the time.  I came to learn that was an anomaly but it sure gave me incentive to keep submitting.

I've had three over the $1000's.

 

The first was my second ever sale in 2005 and it was for $ 1216.61

The second which was my highest ever, was in 2013 for $ 1815.98

The third was in 2016 for $ 1023.26

 

The good old days right enough! By contrast yesterdays license was the smallest I've ever had!

After so many years I think I can mention this one sale in 2011 for $9730 gross - a 12-month worldwide billboard and transit ad - licensed but to this day, never seen. It was super-sensitive at the time because the buyer accepted an indemnity (I still won't go further than that!) and perhaps a reason why it was paid for but never placed.

Best single sale for me here was $400 for commercial, web, banner and social media. The license was for 5 years but the fine print said 6 months - that was in 2015. I've had a few for $250 as early as 2009 and as recently as 2017, highest this year was $125, for a simple sign taken a few miles from my house. I shoot a lot of editorial. I've had a lot more repeat sellers in the past few years, and have netted over $1,000 from some one-day, or even a few hours' shoots from licenses here, but no single sales in the four figures. I hope to break the $1,000 barrier for a single sale one of these days (best license elsewhere was $750 for one-year exclusive use of an image rejected by several other sites including this one - so you never know what sells).

Well it was $28,560 .. gross! 

 

Then I woke up, made a coffee, logged on to Alamy and found I had made a sale of $18 gross!

 

But really my best ever was $480 gross for 'commercial brochure' back in 2012.

 

The dream was good though - almost sexual in it's excitement/intensity value. In the dream I never identified what the image was of - just the amount on my Alamy sales on computer page. Ho hum.

My first and only sale thus far, on Aug. 27th this year, gross: $365. An RF sale. Has cleared and supposed to be paid (182.50) on Nov. 1.

Was shocked when I saw it, but never believed it was going to represent the future.  I keep telling myself it's only a one year advance.  Hope that's not true.  Have had 3 zooms this month, so optimistic for a second sale soon.

You guys keep good records!  :rolleyes:

 

I don't recall any sales beyond a few hundred $$$. I still get sales of $100 or so. Understand that I aim all my shooting at editorial, common access subjects. No Live News or signed releases. My pro work was in the Film Era, and Tony Stone was my stock agency. A different time in a different world.

In this case, Alamy has good records too.

I went to my Net revenue sales report; set the start date at 2004 when I joined and after the page loaded, I hit download.

It downloads as a .csv file, which will open in Excel or any other spreadsheet program.

In Excel sort the license fee highest to lowest. You could even filter for years, but I didn't. I'm not very good with Excel.

 

TS threw me out for not producing enough.
