IanDavidson Posted July 30, 2019 Share Posted July 30, 2019 (edited) Hi, i know I have had a portfolio review before but this is a different question. About 95% of my pictures are Live News and of those 90% are from Downing Street and Westminster. I have a reasonable level of news web sales (anything from 10 to 30) and monthly print sales. (Between 1 and 5) This give a reasonable income for the three to four days a week I put in. (I have childcare responsibilities) The Cabinet Minister/Prime Minister shots are best sellers. However, I am not getting the level of print sales of friends covering broadly the same subjects. I am aware that the subject of my photography puts me up against the big agencies such as PA and Reuter’s etc so competition is fierce. (And I am frequently surprised when my pictures are used rather than theirs.). I do keyword my news sales as they often pop up as stock. I try the “less is more” with news pictures as the subject is not really conducive to wide key-wording. I do try to widen the scope with weather photos, local (Essex) events and a tiny bit of stock. My trusty (and expensive) Nikon D5 is on its way to the shop as the LCD screen has stopped working so I am using the time to review my business and shooting plans for the next six months, What can I do with my portfolio to improve sales? Any help appreciated https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/iandavidsonphotography Edited July 30, 2019 by IanDavidson Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
