Everyone's a newbie on the new forum until they make ten posts.

Encouraging news from a number of people! I have seen a couple of 3 figure sales in the last few months also, but not in the same league as you guys. Maybe Alamy's new sales strategy is beginning to bear fruit?

 

I get the impression that you need to be selling to buyers outside the UK (maybe outside Europe as well) to make the good money at this time.

Hi All,

All the best.

Just recieved the payment made e-mail . I thought long and hard before I posted this sale, I didn't want to brag about it, but wanted to show that great sales could still be made through Alamy, and to say a very big thank you to who ever it was in the Alamy sales team that made the sale. Great great job.

Good job, Shergar. It's wonderful to know there are still some publications with deep pockets willing to pay for good photographs.

Yeah, very well done.  It's good to read about success stories!  May you have as much success as your Irish namesake (though a happier end!)

Well done. This type of news is encouraging to us all.

 

And there could be many more such sales by Alamy that are never posted on the forum. Firstly, those of us who do post here are a tiny minority of contributors. And, secondly, some of those, perhaps many, who do post here may not wish to reveal their sale prices. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that wish for privacy, it is an individual choice.

 

But given that we do get some who are generous enough to post such achievements and that this is a very small number relative to the total number of contributors, leads me to suggest that there may be many more high value sales than we may think.

 

Any other views/observations?

Perhaps Alamy could list the top ten sales values each month just to keep us interested!
