Post your positive results here :)

No sense in my guessing--I wouldn't have bet much on half of my multiple sellers.

More positive news from/about DC:

The image for display in the hotel has cleared.

Despite that, I still think it's the Donald's new one.

(Mine was not a bowl of Skittles.)

edit: search for *hotel* in this topic in the search bar, to see what this is about.

Steady sales and zooms through this month.  One of those sales was licensed at $310.  Good payment for an image of a pile of rubbish :) .  

 

I'm now well over my total sales for last year and still three months to go.

Just when I thought that $100+ sales were on the verge of extinction, one for $150 popped up today. Nice to see.

 

There's still hope... B)

After a slow couple of months, I had 5 sales drop in this morning. Three of the same subject for a  bimonthly Worldwide Magazine/electronic, print run of 2 million. 2 full page @ $300 each and the front cover @ $600.00. They were natural history subjects, can anyone give me an idea of which magazine this might be please. Sold in USA.

 

One of the others was $125....so made September very nice for me, thanks Alamy.

British Wildlife Magazine?

National Wildlife?

New Zealand Geographic?

Audubon?

No idea about print runs though.

For newspapers the Wikipedia numbers are usually in the ballpark.

 

Try google for bi-monthly natural magazine or bi-monthly geographic magazine.

edit: congratulations of course!

Thanks for the suggestions wiskerke, will take a look at them. Yes, it's nice to see Alamy obtaining such a good fee.

Good fees come from excellent and unique images. Well done.

After almost three months without a 3 digit license, I had two $149 in a row. One of them is my "best seller", which has been sold 15 times for a total over $2600. I just need a dozen more pictures like that.

With my portfolio growth I finally have a steady sales. A bit more than one a week. Not very impressive result and rather modest sums of money but I am glad to finally have hundreds of views every day, zooms from time to time and regular sales every month. Going to upload more editorial content. Every editorial shoot tells a story so attracts attention. Congrats to everyone with healthy sales. )

Finally made the small achievement of attaining 4000 images. It's came about much later than I thought it would as my enthusiasm and inspiration waned at times. Pleased to have finally made it though. :)

Have been with Alamy 12 years this month.

 

2016 has seen my 3 best ever months for sale numbers, my 2 best ever months for gross income, and my best ever month for Alamy income.

 

It can work. Thank you Alamy

Finally had another sale, for a paltry $65, but it's a sale so I'm positive!

After being on Alamy for a little over two months, I have just gotten my first zoom. Feel like a winner already.

It was nice to get a sale early in the month - it was only $50 but is one I took of Ohio State while visiting my daughter, so it has some sentimental value, I saw it in "Balance of Account" last night. Also licensed two RM images not yet on Alamy directly yesterday of an out of the way little town for editorial web use at good prices to a UK online magazine, and turned in an assignment to a local urban NY magazine with two more RM licenses, so I feel optimistic about traditional RM licensing at the moment and don't often have a day with 5 full-price sales unless I'm working on a large assignment. 

 

Hope you all don't mind me sharing all this - it was nice to end a good day with an Alamy sale. September was the first month in a long time where I didn't have one so an early in the month sale is encouraging. I find that October and November often end up doubling my stock photo and POD site income for the year so fingers crossed!

Thanks! Sometimes it's hard to stay positive about the future of stock photography so those good days certainly help! 

Encouraging to see good prices Alex and Abiyoyo. Wish this thread was busier!
