Hello all!

I realize that I really wasn't active at all during 2016 but I plan to change that for 2017.  I have a huge backlog of great images that I'm excited to start sorting through and uploading.  These include lots of images from some of my past stock lines that haven't been updated in awhile but also lots of images from my two trips to Yellowstone National Park in 2015 and 2016 and lots of fun dog stock images. (Dog photography has been my recent focus as I now have four fantastic and photogenic dogs).

As always, though, feel free to comment below if there is anything in particular you'd like to see more of (especially past stock lines that haven't been updated recently)!  

Also, PLEASE NOTE that my non-commercial rule regarding most of my stock is not always by choice but by necessity.  Most zoos have rules against commercial use of photographs of their animals and even places such as Yellowstone require that photographers buy a commercial license in order to allow any commercial use of the photographs that they take.  I receive notes and comments on a regular basis asking to be allowed to use my stock commercially but the simple truth is that most of my images are simply not allowed to be used commercially due to rules outside of my control.  I actually notice that a lot of 'free' commercial stock providers here on deviant are likely unaware of these rules as a lot of their stock is taken at the same types of facilities that I have frequented.  While legal repercussions are unlikely, I simply do not consider it worth the risk.  

Thank you all for your continued support.  Let's make this an awesome year!

Regarding Allowable Use

As I receive a lot of repeative questions regarding my stock I figured I would clear up a few general points here:

- Use of my stock for art references for commissions/paintings is fine so long as it is only for 'hobby income' and the finished product will not be massed produced or used commercially. This means that the artist must inform the commission that the art is only for their personal use.

- It is fine to use my stock to create icons and/or banners for use both on Deviantart and on other websites so long as proper credit is given and the use does not violate any of my other rules (see below).

- People are more than welcome to use my stock in school projects or school posters so long as the resulting work will not be mass produced.

- Not for profit conservation organizations are more than welcome to use my stock as long as the use promotes conservation of the related species and/or "wild spaces".

Rules

The following are the rules for using my stock:

-Provide proper credit for any of my stock used whether it be for a photomanipulation or drawing reference.

- MY IMAGES MAY NOT BE DISTRIBUTED THROUGH OTHER WEBSITES OR APPLICATIONS.

- Do not make/post precuts of my stock. I would like the original image to be the only one available for stock use unless I personally post another version.

-Photomanipulation images created for off-site purposes must have a signature watermark by the artist or credits directly on the image to prevent art theft. It is recommended that referenced art also have a signature but it is not required.

- DOG STOCK LINE MAY NOT BE USED IN GORY OR EXCESSIVELY VIOLENT WORKS.

- NONE OF MY STOCK MAY BE USED IN ANY PIECE WITH AN ANTI-CONSERVATION TYPE THEME OR MESSAGE.

-Noncommercial uses only for stock. Use of my stock for commission reference is usually fine so long as credit for the reference is given.

-While it is not required, it is nice to be sent links to deviations where my stock is used. This gives me an opportunity to favorite the pieces and also lets me know what stock is most used/what I should post more of in the future.

-Feel free to note me with any other questions.

On Comments and Notes

While favorites are great, I really love receiving comments and also love to see the work that has been done with my stock. Although I do not reply to ever comment, I do read them all! Notes are always read immediately although replying sometimes slips my mind. Should you have a question you need answered and I do not reply within a week, feel free to send a follow-up note!

I'm not really sure what you're asking but  I don't actually tend to mind if my stock is used for commissions so long as it's been notably changed (not just colors tweaked or something simple), the commissioner understands that they can't use the final piece commercially and the person doing the commissions (such as yourself?) is only doing them for extra hobby money,  not a primary/professional source of income. Does that help?

Yes, for book covers or wallpapers. I'd like to sell if anyone thinks it's useful for them.
Only if you have no objection for it. I don't do minor changes, I work hard on art. They are like my children.
More than hobby, probably it's my serious passion.
