How to Maximise Your Photo Sales With Alamy

A One-Day Practical Seminar by Keith Morris
14th May 2016 in Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire


Despite an ever-increasing glut of pictures available online, it is still possible to earn money from stock photography by licensing your images through a photo library such as Alamy, or directly to publishers. But to be successful you need to know how to determine exactly what the market wants.

Keith Morris is a man who knows the answers and he will be sharing that knowledge during this all-day seminar. Just one good sale could recoup the cost of the seminar! Read what delighted participants in his previous seminars have said here.

The seminar will focus on Alamy since that provides the best opportunities for aspiring photographers, but the skills are transferable to other markets.

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

In a career spanning nearly 35 years he has covered a vast range of stories and events for major national newspapers and magazines 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 libraries in the UK. He is probably the top contributor and seller in the UK with Alamy – one of the UK’s largest picture libraries.

Since joining Alamy in 2006 he has grossed over $325,000 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. He sells at least one image a day.
