I have had an Alamy account for just over a year now. Only have 45 photos on there. I checked yesterday for recent activity and see I had a sale about a week ago for $180. It's a photo to be used as a 2 page spread in a text book. My cut comes to $108, not to bad.

That's great! Can you provide the Alamy photo number? I'd love to see what sold.

It's a shot I took of the tornado that went through Tuscaloosa AL on April 27th while chasing.

I appreciate it! Just need a 2 or 3 on there so I can break the $250 minimum and actually get paid. lol

Good job! The more images and longer they're on Alamy, you'll see sales increases. Nothing dramatic but I started there awhile back and get somewhat regular payouts now. :)

1800+ on my main pseudonym

I have about another 1000 on the pseudo I don't share with the world. :)

What's the point in having a pseudonym?

Different collections of stuff ... my main sells all RF work and my pseudo all RM but I was considering one for food, one for models, etc. They have higher sales rates that way, normally. I just haven't separated them properly.
