Oh yes how good does that feel. They pay up much quicker these days as well.

Re: First sale for me at Alamy!

I'm still a ways off from their $250 min payout, but it certainly feels good to see things starting to sell. Hopefully it's one of many to come.

Re: First sale for me at Alamy!

well done mate! I have recently had my first 4 shots pass QC so will be uploading loads more soon.
Must be a good feeling, knowing that someone will pay cash for your work! Its yet to happen to me so theres pangs of jealousy i am feeling too!

Hey, four shots is a good start. I had to submit 10 for my initial submission, and that was on a CD through the mail.. took FOREVER to process and go through their QC process.

Just keep on submitting. It's hard to have sales on images you don't have up with them yet =)

Re: First sale for me at Alamy!

Rather than start up another thread.. proud to say I had another sale w/ Alamy. This time for $100. Not too bad =) Image ref is AEARFH for anyone interested in looking. Cute father/son pic from a Detroit Tigers baseball game.

Anyone else had luck with Alamy? I just started submitting a few images to the photoshelter collection. Lots of views, no sales. Going to focus more on Alamy for the time being.
