The only thing that can still be profitable is the daily photo shoot of celebrities on the red carpet. But most of us don't have that option, and many photographers wouldn't even care. Stock photographers in the current business model will never be in profit again.

beyond fees, i guess more support to increase licences, especially in non UK news/day to day images

 

My latest interaction my Alamy:

 

Me: There is one image in What should i shoot (WSIS) in my new city, however that business does not exist, let me know what the client wants i'll go and do it

 

A; We have no other information what they want....also not sure how Customer pro-active that is to not follow up.... of course in reality WSIS isn't really something a client needs, and sounds way more proactive than it really is.

 

 

 

I have a major weather system coming my way later today, but as much as Alamy keeps claiming that "Weather is always news", they mean "At Alamy, weather in UK and Ireland is always news"  (except if you get some destructive system like my friends in BC)

being thirty years younger would greatly help!

I'd like that too 

Winning a £1,000,000 would help Would be nice to get a few more sales and will help to get me more motivated

higher fees OR larger percentage

I thought you were in Ottawa, hills are not much of a problem there. But winter will hit any day soon. I don't know Halifax well but I think it just gets wetter there

Being retired so I don't have multiple clients all demanding stuff at the same time 😛

 I had done my one year in Ottawa, so was time to move on, meandering pandemic edition.  Ottawa was flat, not so much Halifax.   As for wetter,  we have 100mm+ of rain forecasted in next 24 hours.

Being able to walk more than I can now. Lower gasoline prices like they were a year ago, so I could range out in my car like I used to do, going into the countryside if I wanted. Right now, my opportunities for varied images have shrunk markedly.

And I like the 30 years younger option! 😝

I used to live and work there back in the 1970's.  Hills Pah!  You should come to Lincoln for hills. Well at least one of them.

Edo I think what would make me more productive is MORE SALES per month.
