Beware Self promotion

posted on 19th of november, 2011

Sorry all, this is not a real blog per se (I am trying to write one but need a little time for the results of my "experiment"). In the meantime a few of my images are coming up for "disabling" due to no sales. So I have slightly extended the scope of my experiment to include an attempt to save said images.
I have collected the images about to expire in a "Last Chance" collection which includes images of the Templo de Debod in Madrid, landscapes of some vineyards around Geneva during autumn and a couple of "industrial" type images taken around a hydro-electric dam.
This collection will remain and will be available from my profile page, and we'll see if this brings any exposure to the rest of my images.
The link to the collection is Last Chance Collection

I would appreciate it if you would visit and "like" my photography page on Facebook: Shadow69 Photography

Thank you for your patience with this self promotion non-blog ;-)

Concentrate on new photos instead of saving old once. Keep uploading and don't look at the past

Basically images that were uploaded 4 years ago and have not had a sale are up for removal, or you can choose to include them in the free images database, or send them to the keymasters for re-keywording if you are convinced that they have the potential for sales.

Nice images of "the temple" in Madrid.
I didn't know images could "expire", what are the rules for this ?

One thing I am doing is reviewing the images keywords one year before they "expire", some of them sell after that, so I think its a good measure.

Thank you Eliane. Very kind of you. Did you have a look at the Facebook page? I would love to know what you think.

It is ok to show here your work from time to time. Great images.

I once blogged about my photos in danger too!

To hopefully help out with exposure, I added 3 of your photos to my Wine, Cellar, & Vineyard and Water Reflections collections :)
