A year or so ago, I received a request for exclusivity for an image, for quite a nice fee (about $350, from memory).  I was pleasantly surprised: it was an ok but fairly run-of-the-mill image of a church taken in Prague.  I was pleased when the sale went through and was reported, but it was almost immediately reversed.  It turned out that the client had transposed two of the letters in the image reference: it was not mine that they wanted at all, but rather an old sepia picture of American soldiers, maybe from the Civil War (my knowledge of old American military uniforms is not great) which was wanted for a calendar - hopes raised then dashed again fairly quickly!

After all the bad news recently, Betty, that's good to hear. Congrats!

I'm not sure if this is a positive or not, but I've just passed the '1,000 images in my port' thing.  :rolleyes:

It seems to me that early surges are much better for morale and motivation than leaving these clumped sales to the last two days of the month.

Caught a little bit of that early surge yesterday.  Had four decent sales drop in.

Well, I was so pleased to get an email from alamy informing me my mobile phone imagery portfolio had been selected July's 'latest imagery' page.

Ams images  if anyone would like a peek.

Well done. Terrific images. I was happy to see that when I zoomed on your cat's paws the similar images included some of my tabby's paws. Those tabbies are so wonderful.

Thanks - I was one of only 3 pro togs there, I think I cleaned up as the others were just from the papers, not Alamy contributors.  If I could get this much exposure from 13 pics every week I'd be a rich man!

Milestone of 3000 images reached today which means I have added more than 1500 since the year started. Looking forward to reaching the next milestone of 5,000 images which I expect will take me a little longer than 7 months!

Woke up to see another sale credited. My third overall. Still surprised I have sales on Alamy.

 

My last two sales did not register as zooms in Alamy Measures. How can this be and what does this mean?

Thanks!

No big money here, but bought a G5X as a pocket camera a couple of weeks ago, and it's already started to pay for itself, two pix in the Sun weather online thing a couple of days ago, here's the best of the two...

That's a big number in such a small amount of time - well done!

Had my 3rd sale of the month drop in today.  An editorial use for 1 year for a Slovak organisation for $5.57.  Why the hell do I bother?!!!  Absolutely disgusted.  What really took the p*ss was the statement 'bulk discount applied' in the details.  How much lower can we go?!

Colblimp, it's been something I've been looking at for quite awhile already. I've had a few $3 sales for 5 years editorial use.

After a looong series of under $10 I finally got a $100 again.
Maybe this will be the start of better times again.

Haven't been in here in a couple weeks - lots of greenies - good to see some nice sales and other milestones - congrats to many of you. And love that portfolio Ann / Ams Images - gorgeous! 

No news on that book cover -  looks like there are lots of possibilities they're considering. I wasn't holding my breath. Hope one of us makes the grade. It'd sure be nice. 

Three sales in a row this month - all decent amounts so that's something.

Woke up this morning to another 3 Pippa MIddleton sales, which brings this month's total to 6 sales, 5 of which are of her.  I'm going to have to start paying her! :lol:
