Sold an Image on Saturday and one on Sunday - probably the first time that has happened

Funny, it happened to me for the first time a few weeks back.

Most months I am waiting patiently to get off the mark and need a week or more for the first to drop in. To-days the 4th and a shot from Norfolk thumped in with a very pleasant $495 which I did for my first book way back in 1972. As has been often said; This is indeed a waiting game! Best not to give too much away as the site is very accessible and to be honest, there's nothing all that remarkable about my shot. There are a couple of similars from other contributors.

 

Book Duration: 25 years. Amount of Uses for Secure Electronic: Unlimited. Amount of Uses for Non Secure Electronic: Unlimited

 

Congratulations, Robert. Here's to many more! 😉 😊

Robert, If great or remarkable can be truthfully used about an image, there's always some serendipity involved. We all should aim at producing very good images consistently. 

 

Because this is an open forum, I rarely put in numbers.

Yes, I would usually agree about numbers, especially the tiresome tiddlers, just got carried away with the Christmas cheer

Well, I'd assumed that December was usually a dead loss, but last year it was well above average, including a $$$, so we'll see.  I'm not holding my breath- this year is back to 2013 in revenue so far.

Low, but very welcome, $$$ magazine sale ( US of A) popped in this afternoon.  An old image, never previously sold,  and not one of my better works, but I've given up trying to predict what will and won't sell. Not seen any refunds of late, fingers, and all other parts, crossed. 😉

Total sales Gross this year up c.50% on last year. Unfortunately with the new 60% share for Alamy this means my share is up approx 20%. Still better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick; especially in Covid year!

Past last year's number of sales by a couple after a flurry of recent sales, but gross revenue is down, net about half of 2019. Still hopeful that November's flurry and one this past week are harbingers of better times ahead.

With the sale of a street-scene of Hebden Bridge today, I've now had more Alamy licences in 2020 than in any other year (but not the best revenue).

 

I'm celebrating with a can or two of cider and a bag of Haribo sweets...

Best ($$$) price of the month, this morning, for a picture of a Wetherspoons pub in one of our less salubrious Northern towns...

 

Same here !

 

But the 'Spoons was in Gloucester.

 

We can go and celebrate, separately, whilst eating a ready meal with our cheap pint.

So the Wetherspoons photos are for TV.  This sale has just nudged my 2020 revenue above 2019 although number of sales is still slightly lower.
