Are you asking how you could improve your sales or something else?

Assuming it's about sales, I think you have images that appeal to a small-ish subset of buyers and where the agencies have a plentiful supply. As an example, I searched for istanbul mosque on SS and (photos only) there are over 46K results.

Another example where you have good search position in a smaller pool (about 3.5K) of photos is arabic pottery, but I expect the buyer pool is small.

Finding subject matter you can cover well is a good thing, but trying to appeal to more buyers means either a range of subjects or a more popular subject. Possibly there are less obviously glamorous subjects that might make useful stock - my home's septic system, hot water heater and such have provided good stock - no one will hang it on a wall, but lots of businesses need these subjects.

You're in Istanbul...so much going on there political wise that you could snatch some very interesting editorials, which are in high demand. Just stay safe.

You're in Istanbul...

If you look at his profile, he's in Alexandria, Egypt - I assume there was a trip to Istanbul this Spring
