I thought I had mostly deleted abstract background type images from very early uploads, before I really knew what was likely to sell, but just sold this one. Only $5 of course.

I shouldn't be pleased about this license (because of low $ plus terms) but I am because it's an insect! 

Wildlife is hard enough to sell but don't mention insects! And it's the third insect sale this month!!

It's interesting that you say that. I also do a lot of wildlife photography, and my experience is that insect photos sell well, especially butterflies, but other wildlife particularly birds rarely sell. I think there are so many great bird photographers in the UK that it's very hard to compete.

Yes interesting. Birds used to be my number one selling subject when I was heavily into it. Birds from all over the world, I did many trips abroad just for bird photography. For some reason, these have dried up. Buyers might prefer more recent shots.

 

Perhaps I was a bit pessimistic. I just checked my Inverts and Insects sales so far (since 2003): 65 . I find that ants seem to sell the best. Green ants, leaf-cutter ants. Also butterflies, spiders.

 

Lately I have been mainly shooting landscapes and made an effort to also photograph people.

 

Side note: I see you're from Hampshire. I used to live near Haslemere before moving to Australia.

I have seen some of your amazing bird photos in the images sold thread, Gen. It's a shame if your sales of exotic birds are drying up. It shouldn't really matter when they were shot, but I guess they just drop down the searches a bit as they get older.

 

I have also tried to diversify a bit more to improve sales. It's working to some extent - I'm getting more sales, but as my photos are mainly in the UK, the prices are often very low. I think I need to travel more.

 

I know Haslemere - it's only about half an hour away from me.

This just licensed for a princely mid $ to a UK magazine (inside or cover) with a circulation of 500K.

At least I didn't have to venture farther than my own backyard to photograph it.

It seems to be the same client as my insect. Same terms.

Second time sold in 8 days. No idea why...     Royalty-free    Usage: Single company - multiple use editorial only Editorial print + digital use.

I don't know how you define $ or $$ or $$$, but this one probably falls in the $$ range.

Well, hopefully this marks a nice turning point. 4 months since first sale (still not cleared), and this morning, had three new sales each for low/mid $$, so mid/high $$ between them.

 

Here's one

Thanks. I was beginning to feel a bit despondent with the lack of sales.
