I’m back from excellent vacations in Asia! Japan and Thailand are really great places to be. A big thanks to David, one of my blog readers in Tokyo, to take the time to meet me. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to meet more of you during my next travels. Anybody from Brisbane? That’s where I will be next.
Due to my holidays I was not able to post my April statistics on time, so here you have them with some delay. The month of April was weaker and did not continue the upwards trend of the previous months. When compared to 2008 the dip in April appears to be normal. In 2009 April stayed flat with regards to March. So no need to worry with the April 2010 numbers.
The months before summer are usually weak and it is a great time to shoot and get ready for the post-summer large volume sales!
Getty royalties are exactly the same as they were a year ago. These are the numbers for March 2010 (the April numbers are coming out next week). I am happy with that considering the more expensive Getty collections are struggling to keep up with the changes in the stock market.
Royalty per Image slightly down on iStockphoto. At Getty Images slightly up for March.
How has your business been going? Did your April see a peak too? Are you preparing your portfolio for post-summer sales?
