Get to it! My London student stuff just keeps on giving. You can't (well, OK, Alamy can) put a price on not there anymore.

Even a 90s snap of the Dunes casino the other day. Demolished (the following year, as it happens)

 

I have quite a few 90's images that continue to license here, even the occasional one from the late 80's. My scanner is not fully functional at the moment. If I manage to get it working properly, I'll crack open the time capsule and resurrect some old b&w negs. I have shots from music festivals in the late 60's that might be of interest, not too sure about a lot of the other stuff. Then again, as they say, if you can remember the 60's, you weren't really there. 🤩

All,

 

Saw this had sold this morning for my highest price yet at Alamy. Strange, my modest portfolio on Alamy has had 13 sales in 2019, yet according to image manager I have only had 2 zooms since October! Neither of those were sales. Not complaining as I'd rather the sales mount than the zooms but difficult to judge how my pics are doing with such bizarre data.

I haven't been long with Alamy, but in my experience zooms are NOT potential sale indicator.  All my images that sold never had a zoom.

 

Happy about your success, and yes sales are more important ;=)

It has been a slow month so far, so I was happy to see three new sales pop up today. Mind you, earnings from this distributor sale (editorial website, bulk rate) won't even buy me a sliver of pumpkin pie.

Sale is a sale!  Goes slow for awhile, then one day *bang* You can never tell.

 

On a micro agency I had slowest start in a year, then yesterday some extended licenses.   Keep swimming 😀

First one of the month. Price started OK, but then its distributer so dived to low $$.

Personal use sale. Zoomed 12 March, licenced 15 March. Just wondering how someone licencing for personal use would be a registered buyer???? Just $...half the usual fee. On the plus side, the 8th licence of this image by Alamy, and the 12th overall.

An update on this licence. Sale refunded and resold at a price increase of 260%. Duration now unlimited. Thanks Alamy, for getting me a few more $$.

I once had a personal sale of an image and then two months later one other from the series of the same subject was sold for the rear cover of a book. I figured the personal sale may have been by the author. The fee for the book was a lovely $345. So let's hope something similar is going on for you.
