My old car on its way to the scrappy last year. That'll add to the cheque I got for it.

The first of the year...  :)

Websites, apps, social media and blogs (excludes advertising). Worldwide for 5 years

for a pretty good two-digit amount.
I'm happy, maybe this year I'll be able to do better. I uploaded a lot of other photos and set a few keywords ...
fingers crossed

My thinking as well. I don't understand why anyone is still in PU or NU. Opt out! I'm not in distribution either, by the way. I think it is self-fulfilling to have the lowest option in the price-list pre-selected and it ought to be changed.

I opted out of Alamy's "schemes", but don't see a way to opt out of PU. If there is, I'd like to know. I wonder if Alamy's sales staff is commissioned or salaried? There may be no incentive to fetch decent fees.

Just ask Alamy to put a restriction on all of your images for no sale of Personal Use licences.

They'll do it all in one go. Job done.

I'll probably opt out of NU, but why opt out of PU when it pays more than many other recent licences? If the customer isn't using the PU licence legitimately it could well be that they could have got it cheaper by being honest!

Thank you Khan. We were waiting for lightning in the distance but I thought it wasn't going to work. So I switched to wide angle.

The light was amazing and the tide just right.

Sharon, your skill including both photography and developing is great. I would suggest to you, though, not to waste too much time on shooting common food items like fruit. As beautifully presented as yours are, those kind of images are done to death on the micros. So a buyer will probably go there first and get an image (also done well) for pennies.

Now, the image of your cupcake...fine. As far as food goes, take images of food that you have cooked or baked. While I have fruit in my port, (not many) never have I sold one, other than one of a pineapple showing my husband’s hands slicing a fresh one. Years ago!! 

 

I did sell an image of a cream pie I baked once for $700, packaging. But even those are seldom licensed and that was a one-off. Something I can brag about until the cows come home without much hope of repeating it.

I do get occasional zooms of my food, and occasional licenses. Presentation is everything, and I tend to cook my dinner then decide to shoot it, rather than think shoot first, cook what is needed, and have the items on hand to style it and light it properly. There are so many good food photographers here, so the competition is fierce. Where food is concerned, I tend to shoot from the hip rather than planning the shootout at OK Corral! :D As a result, my food photography is pretty blah.

Good luck!

Thanks for your input, Betty.  Truly appreciated :) I`ve come to realize that food isn`t the thing to focus on.  I need to get out there and shoot life situations, but I`m hesitant to shoot people.  Historic buildings seem to sell well from what I`ve seen.

Don’t be afraid to shoot people. Just don’t be in-your-face with it. Sometimes if you can find a place to sit, spend time looking as if you’re fiddling with your camera, you can grab quick shots when you see nobody is looking your way.

Women seem to be less threatening than men also. But discretion is needed, and as time passes, you’ll get a feel for it. Baby steps.

And those historic buildings? Shots with and without people if you can pull it off.
