Congratulations.

Me too - just checked my dashboard this morning to find I had my first sale.  It's not an earth-shattering amount but it is a sale!!!! 1-month, web use, Slovakia, bulk discount.  May we both see many more.P3FXYH.jpg

You can help luck - upload more lol.  I had around 300 images for that first sale and I know many have much bigger ports before they make their first sale.  Keep uploading and that first sale will come.

Yeah, I need to open more time organizing my photos, but currently I'm at St Louis de Montfort Academy Boarding School (montfortacademy.edu) and all my time is taken up there with teaching other students photography and cinema.

Well done on the first sale and that is a beautiful image. Well deserved.

 

Regarding port size and initial sales, it can vary so much from individual to individual. For me, I made my first and only sale with just over 100 photos - after being here a few months.

Contrasts on you first sale, I'm very impressed at the number of images you have  managed to upload, since joining Alamy only a year ago

I'm new, but i have a feeling it depends on the buyer's arrangement with Alamy.  My first sale was with The Guardian, so as regular customer they probably have some kind of arrangement.  I only know about the time line of this one because someone noticed my capture in the online paper day before xMas
