Thanks. I would expect a big shock if I ran this sale through the price calculator. Still, it's encouraging.

I had a similar price for an 'advertorial' last month. Very welcome as it helped pay for the trip to Barcelona.

The last front cover I had was for less.

Some nice sales coming in there! 

 

Can't compete with that but I did get $75 for a 1/4 page magazine shot on RF.... more than double some full page shots were getting last month!

OK, so I decided to hold my breath and run this sale thru the Alamy price calculator. I got $4455!

 

Yes, that's four thousand four hundred and fifty-five big ones.

 

Still, I'm glad the buyer wasn't in the Russian Federation or Brazil.

Really?!  Wave at Ford Fusion in slow lane.

 

No I'm not on the I-95. In September probably.

A cover, yes. (AM5HY4)

And this morning one reassuring 2 page spread.

There's a lot of discussion about the distribution system and whether to be in or out - most of my three-figure sales have come from Japan. Yes, I get a smaller cut, but Japanese TV have contributed a good percentage of my income over the last couple of years.

Nice going!

Had a similar sale back in Feb.

Otherwise I have to go back to mid 2010 for something in that ball park.

Got spoilt with my first ever sale in 2007, that was $650!

 

cheers

never mind john if you missed just 1 last digit in actual paid amount. Lets hope that you (& we all too) dont miss any digit from calculated price for at least one of our upcoming sales (though i am not that hopefull ;) )

I was kind of blown away by the price calculator quote (think I entered everything corrrectly). I had it expected it to be much higher, of course, but not by such a huge margin. A few months ago, a $500 sale popped up, but it wasn't editorial. This latest was one of my best editorial leases on Alamy. Let's hope more of them come along.

I had a $450 sale last month, sounds good until I realised 70% of it had gone in fees,   so what'll you end up with, about  £70 ?  then not so good.
