Alamy Sales Seminar


Stock imaging and how to sell through Alamy Photo Library – maximise your sales.

Exciting news, for some it has been increasingly difficult to make an impact and reasonable income from stock images, this has become more difficult by the increasing number of digital photographs being made available in the market place, but this is about to change and you can be part of that change!

I have recently discovered someone who has inspired me – he is probably the top contributor and seller in the UK with Alamy – one of the UK’s largest picture agencies.

Keith is a successful freelance news, editorial, arts and features photographer based in Aberystwyth on the west Wales coast.

In a career spanning nearly 35 years he has covered a vast range of stories and events for major national newspapers and magazine in the UK and abroad and has been commissioned by major organisations such as the BBC, the National Trust, the National Lottery, and the Welsh Government. His photographs have been published in hundreds of books and magazines all over the world

As an additional way of earning a living from his work he contributes to a small number of photo agencies and picture agencies in the UK. Since joining Alamy in 2006 he has grossed over $386,000 in image sales, that’s an average in excess of $30,000 a year – enough to buy his house, with the vast majority of those photos made within walking distance of his home in the centre of Aberystwyth!! Having not been abroad since 1987 he makes a virtue of working in a very small local area, and finds new ways of looking and seeing, and finding the commercial potential of everyday situations and activities, and he sells at least one image a day!  Amateur Photographer has recently published article on Keiths work.

I have invited him to lead a 1 day seminar/workshop where he will show examples of his work, talk about what makes a saleable image, how best to get them on Alamy’s site and how to keyword those images. There will be an opportunity for you to take images and have them assessed to see if they fit the ideal for Alamy.

The next Seminar is planned for the Spring of 2018 - Saturday 7 April 2018 in Cirencester, Gloucestershire with easy access from both M4 and M5 motorways, please email if you are interested..

Space will be limited so to take full advantage of this seminar and open up the opportunity for you to begin selling more images book your space now.

Present at this seminar will be James Allsworth, Contributor Relation Manager of Alamy along with Jessica Manns the Live News Editor of Alamy to answer questions and guide contributors through the processes.

The seminar fee is £150.00 and will include tea/coffee and a light lunch.

“The workshop/seminar was absolutely fantastic.  Learnt so much and you presented very openly with the reality that a street reportage photographer experiences daily.  It was nice to see how close I was, yet those few little tweaks can make all the difference. “
