F.A.Q. :confused:

I'm a painter/sketch artist, may I use your photo(s) as reference?
:) Feel free to use my non-stock photos as reference to your traditional and/or digital drawings/paintings.  Please send me a link to your finished work, I'd like to see your interpretation.

Can I use your images as stock or for photo-manipulation, web design, web blog, or other personal/school/work projects?
:) No, this gallery contains no stock images.  All my photographs are copyrighted and may not be altered, printed or published in any media and/or format.  

What type of cameras and/or lenses do you use?
:) Here's a sooper.deviantart.com/art/Phot… to my photo gear.  Specific equipment info can be found beneath each photograph found in this gallery.

Do you work at zoos or state/national parks?
:) No, I operate my own international trading business.  Photography is a passion and serious hobby.  

How do you get such clear shots through glass without glares/reflections?
:) You can read more about my simple technique here sooper-deviant.deviantart.com/… in STEP 4

How do you take shots through vertical-wire or chain-link fences?
:) You can read more about my simple technique here sooper-deviant.deviantart.com/… in STEP 6  

What do the four-digit numbers in your image titles mean?
:) They are original image file numbers from my cameras (IMG_2005, IMG_2006, IMG_2007, IMG_2008, etc.) and kept as reference for easy search in my personal photo archive.

Ah, yes... the younger audience might remember it from the "Gone in 60 Seconds" (2000 remake) movie soundtrack too. :D

I have a proposition for you...

I am seriously lacking motivation and trying to find myself again through art.
If you feel up to it, pick one of your animal/wildlife photos (large cat or not) and suggest it for me to draw. When I'm done, I will gladly post it to dA and link you for the recommendation and credit to original photo.
I'm looking to push myself. Here are a couple samples of my work: [link] , [link]

Let me know what you think.

It might be best if you choose it yourself... I have already spent some time looking over my personal favorites but it would be impossible to narrow it down to just one. :)

These are some gorgeous works! I found feline anatomy a challenge after years of dog drawing. But now i just consider their structure as something more to look into.

Been active only about 4 out of 6 years since I created this account. Left twice in the past... the first time because of unfair dA copyright policies--which they revised eventually. The second time because of work overload and extensive business travels. Came back on both occasions because of the many good friends that I have here. In-fact, I'm meeting one deviant friend for a photo shoot this afternoon.

Now, I'm having issues with certain gallery administrator(s) and trying to find the right person to submit an official complaint. Years ago, there was a major change in dA's gallery categorization system which was supposed to provide equal exposure to a larger number of artists (from writers to photographers). In recent time, couple other deviants and I noticed that the system discriminates many sub categories while a few preferred categories seem to get the front page spotlight at all times--even when they've got hundreds less favorites than others. So I'm just trying to find out some answers and won't be surprised if they shut down my account(s) once I made the truth public.
