This month has taken my total Alamy sales over 1000. This month has also seen my highest monthly number of sales and has made my sales income for 2015 my best year so far on Alamy.

A French distributor $572 magazine cover from last September was CLEARED yesterday! I was holding my breath. I'll spend the money asap, before they can ask for a refund:~)

For me today.... the 1st ever licence from the land of Belgium.

 

Not really positive, but the picture was just the back end of a truck !

Best gross since April 2014 dropped in this morning.  Nothing to shout about by the standards of many of you, but for me it's an important license.  Not zoomed, but seems to be setting a trend and suggesting where and how I am being found by buyers.  Not particularly a niche I am at all interested in, (quite the opposite) but, hey, if that's where the money is, then I'd better get out and take some more of the same!

Picking up (and slightly expanding) the sentiment of Mirco's original post in this thread, that new people should be encouraged, and having just dragged myself from the absolutely negative moaning in another thread, I thought it time to bump Mirco's refreshingly positive thread.

Just had another Alamy infringement case cough up. A few more to go  .. :)

 

Cool.

 

any general, non-identifying, non-libelous description of circumstances/methodology that might help others in similar circumstances?

Record-breaking month for me (and not quite over).

I've broken my records for most sales in a month, most sales in a week and most sales in one day.

The one record I haven't broken, unfortunately, is the most income (still a way to go) but encouraging nevertheless.

This infringement was pointed out to me by Alamy themselves. Is it Picscout who they are working with ?

 

The culprits were a jigsaw company.

And Alamy chased it up, or handballed it to you to do?

Alamy chased it up.

I just confirmed that I hadn't placed the image with other picture libraries or licenced it myself, and waited (Alamy and their partners did the work).

 

Think it's been discussed somewhere around here/blog about Alamy teaming up with one of the image search companies to help track down unauthorised uses.

 

Don't think (but not sure) if Alamy proceeds with the infringement process if you've put the same image in to multiple libraries (I don't).

 

My image in question had initially been licenced legitimately from Alamy to another user,  so I presume it was then taken from there by the naughty rascals.

In 2015, 20 of my images were sold for a total of 1217$. 

 

I had 6 sales in January 2016, amounting to $700.32 (with one 5.32$ distributor sale).

 

So far so good.  :D

Hello fellow photographers.

 

I know that there is not always easy to make sales but lets for the change be positive. You had a good month? Or you made a high sale? Lets put in this topic all your good results.

 

New people should be encouraged. :) :)

 

Mirco

 

Hmm.  And why do you think I should share that detailed information, Micro? I come up with an idea for a subject; I go out at the best time to shoot it, capture the image . . . and then tell everyone here, my competition, what that subject is that sold?  Don't think so.  :huh:

 

Well, I never thought I'd see that on this forum and it disgusts me.  How desperate must you be to think along those lines when all Mirco was trying to do was to encourage newbies (like myself) and inject a little positivity into proceedings?  Shame on you...

Oh FGS . . . Ed's statement is valid, and if you had read more you'd have seen that Mirco actually agreed with him, as do a few other contributors. It's actually why very, very few reports of big sales in this thread are accompanied by actual details of the image.

 

Seriously, if that sort of thing "disgusts" you, you truly need to get out more.

What I find important in this thread is not the detail of the image that has sold but the value of the sale. This gives us all

an idea of what the pricing trend is. It's extremely naive to think that people would openly display an image that they have sold,

allowing people to possibly replicate it. There's more chance of Alamy increasing it's commission level than it is to copy an image and expect

it to sell for the same value.Time is better spent creating and taking your own images, or looking inside high street publications if you are short of ideas.

 

PS nothing positive to report this month.

 

Regards

It was just a misunderstanding from both sides. My English is not the best. I never wanted to ask wich images are sold. Ed understood it like that and asked about it. I answered and everything is fine now i guess.
