I visit various ZOOs to take many pictures of interesting animals: in my gallery, you can find mostly wolves, foxes, big cats and marine mammals, but also some other creatures which deserve attention :nod: I am also trying to bring you information about animals to share the knowledge :D

Welcome to my gallery, dear visitor! :hug:

Critiques

Fiona Stalks by DragonWolfACe

I always look forward to seeing more photos of this great wolf photographer - do not forget to check whole his gallery here: dragonwolf...

American beauty or Carribean flamingo by Nameda
by Nameda

This photo is wonderful! It looks like it was taken in a paradise. There are almost all the possible colours in this photo, but they so...

RULES FOR USING MY WORK

The main rule is: ALWAYS GIVE CREDIT.

Even if I do not like what people did with my work, I will always treat them nicely when they at least tried to somehow credit me. On the contrary, I will always hunt down people who repost / use my shots without at least an attempt to show that it is my work.


How to give credit? Probably the best way is something like “Original (link to original photo) taken by :devwoxys”. But “original by woxys” is fair enough. For people who use my art outside of DA, please, always use a full link to my account “Photo belongs to Woxys: www.woxys.deviantart.com”. The link to particular original photo would be appreciated.


Other rule: never cut my signature, please. Cutting my signature is allowed only in situation 8 :)



1) Can I use your photos as a drawing / painting / sculpture reference?

Yes, you definitely can! I am always pleased when other artists use my photos as an inspiration for their own art. So just give me a credit and send me a link to your final work. I will fav it ;) I usually consider such inspired art to be the property of the author who referenced (especially when he/she use my art just to find out how to draw details, like paws of the foxes), but rather contact me before commercial use. But in 99 % cases it would be fine :)



2) Can I use your photos for photomanipulations and brushing?

Yes, you can. Again, credit me and send me a link to your work, so I can fav it. In this case, the commercial use of such modified photos might be problematic, so always contact me before you plan to sell your work. If I see there is just a minor change (especially kids love to modify just the colour of the animal’s eyes), I would not be happy if you were selling such art.



3a) Can I use your art for any commercial purpose? For commercial purpose, I mean: a logo of a company or any other business, a poster, a motive for ANY thing which is for sold/sell, simply any use that might generate profit, even secondary (a logo, a cover for a book, blah blah blah….). Even if this is just "referenced" - like for example using my photo of a leopard and turning it into a STYLIZED logo/graphic or a T-shirt design / puzzle design.

No, you can not use it for profit without my written permission. I do allow people to use my work for commercial purpose under some condition, but it is always non-exclusive right (so I am still allowed to use and sell my photos). It is always a pleasure for me that somebody wants to use my art and if we finally make a deal! But sorry, I want money. I am too poor to just give my photos away ;) there are only two subjects which might get my photos for free and I would deal with them on particular issues. Thanks for understanding.


3b) What about dA commisions? Can I use your photos in that way?
In this case, contact me, please, I will do my best to help :)



4) Can I use your photos on Facebook / Twitter / any other social network?

I am very happy and grateful when people SHARE my work. That’s the point – if you want to use my work on Facebook and other similar social sites, please, always SHARE, never repost. Simply share a link, never download my photo, uploading it in your own gallery. After all, it would be against rules of Facebook if you do that. Please, try to consider how original artists feel when they see Facebook accounts posting their art, which gets hundreds of shares so original artists totally lose control over their own original creation. The same applies to site like “Pinterest”, “Tumbr” , “We heart it” and other similar pages. I hate them. I hate them with passion.




5) Can I use your photos for my school work/project like a presentation about some animal species which needs some illustrative images?

Yes, you can. Please, do not forget to give me a credit. The rule is the same: “Photos belong to Woxys (Woxys.deviantart.com)”.



6) Can I use your photos for a blog / my site?

I am not very happy about ANY reposting of my work, but I understand many people love to write articles about animals and so and they are not able to complete them with their own photos, while I am lucky to be able to snap animals. So yes, you can use them, but ALWAYS give credit, please. And NEVER cut my signature - this rule is especially important when it comes to posting my shots outside of DA. And it would be very appreciated if you stated that nobody else is allowed to take those photos from YOUR blog/site for other use. Also, please consider the number of photos you use for such purpose. Up to 10 would be nice ;)



7) Can I use your photos for a roleplay?

This does not make me happy at all, but… yes, you can. But please, up to three photos and always give credit. And I would appreciate if you did not cut my signature. There is also a great site for free role play photos! => www.dawnthieves.de/Web/index.p…



8) Can I use your photo for an avatar / Facebook icon?

For avatar here on dA: yes, you can, just give me credit and make the photo some 200x200 px small.

For Facebook: only if you upload it as 50x50 px version. Also, please, give credit.

For Facebook Timeline motive: you can upload only it that size which is required by Facebook itself for such motive and please, put a “Woxys” sign on that photo and give credit, please.

In this case, you might cut a signature, because it would make a total mess in such a tiny picture :)



9) Am I allowed to use your calendars and free wallpapers?

As it is also clearly written in the terms of use, both wallpapers and calendars are only and ONLY for privat use, you might also send a link to a friend or print it for a friend. You must not upload it anywhere else, you must not repost it, you must not sell it and you must not sell / repost / upload particular images of the calendar.



10) Am I allowed to print your photos?

Yes, but only for private use like decorating your room walls :) the same rule applies to downloading photos, setting them as wallpaper. Private use for one computer is ok. Downloading the photo and sending it to your friend, who would not even know me so he would upload it on some “free wallpaper website” definitely IS NOT ok ;)



Thank you for respecting this. If you want to know more about my "credit is needed", read here before you rant, please! ===> woxys.deviantart.com/journal/D…

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 15, 2014, 12:23 PM


Hi pals,

believe me, I always laugh so hard when I politely inform some person that she/he definitely can not repost photos that belong to other authors here on DA. And then the same person comes to my profile, and as a defence, accusing ME of stealing photos, clearly not being able to understand, that some people simply CAN get that camera and snap few shots :lol:

Have fun too!

EDIT: ok he/she has apologized - end of fun, I hope the lesson has been learned :) thanks for nice words and for attempts to make her/him understand how it works with dA rules :)

(No cruel comments for him/her, please, I just think those arguments are incredibly funny :lol:)

You may want to submit this: www.desktopnexus.com/dmca-clai…
Regarding that image that was stolen: animals.desktopnexus.com/wallp…
You have all of the proof that it's yours, so you can get it taken down. It might also be a good idea to start putting a watermark across some part of your artwork that can't be cropped off.

You only say its a stupid argument because its true. More than half of everyone on here has pictures like that. They at least state truthfully that they don't own it. You don't. Hence you putting them in your "Zoo" whatever folder. The bottom line is that you're doing the same thing but when you come across someone else that does it, you find fault with it. Or maybe its because you're bored and have nothing to do. But, whatever. Keep copyrighting pictures and trying to pass them as yours because everyone knows that you haven't gotten that close to a Lion, a Wolf, or a Snow Leopard Wink/Razz

Look, bitch, it may seem hard, but some people can use a camera, even without technically being a professional. Also, there's this thing called zoom- it helps you take close-up shots so you don't actually have to get so close to the wild animals. Good cameras also help you get clear pictures that appear staged. I absolutely do not claim to be anything but an amateur hobbyist photographer, but i have taken good photos at the zoo, though i haven't posted them because i keep forgetting. They are, of course not on the same scale as woxys' photos, but they are good. And if you actually learned how to point a camera and take photos, you could do the same thing. When you copy other people's photos, you aren't really cheating anyone but them and yourself.

I know how to point and use a camera, bitch. I don't you all of you spamming my notifications. I made a mistake, ok, I get it. Get the hell over it now. I was pissed at something earlier when she called me out for some of the pictures I posted and I went ahead and called her out as well. When she comes back on, I'll apologize to her.

No, your wood and cloud photos tell me that you don't know. Yeah you know how to point and press a button but not how to properly set up an image.
Please be honest to yourself that you have a lot to learn till you can say you know how to use a camera. Learn, get better and have fun :D That's what photography is about for hobbyists.

i don't want to offend you or start an argument but could you please explain to my why exactly you think woxys' photos aren't taken by her because i just don't get your argumentation so far...
because to me it's pretty clear: she is travelling to zoos and takes those pictures there using a considerable photographing equipment she has acquiered over the years... 
there are hints that prove she really has taken the photos in a zoo. 
first of all she even says where the animals are located (for example the white lion www.zoobratislava.sk/?fotogale…
moreover from vegetation and the over-designed sourroundings you can tell that those animals are not living in their natural environment, therefore they must be living in a zoo. 
and that stuff with "you can't zoom in like this if you're not professional" is just bullshit, really. it seems to me that you have not much experience in photographing since even with an amateur equipment you can take close ups. it's just about the lens. even my friend who just started with her photographing career can take such shots.  
also the fact you think professionals aren't on deviantart is bullshit. even lauren faust has an acc here and she is a pretty famous artist fyre-flye.deviantart.com/

:iconcalistahale:
CalistaHale Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Artist
She's famous artist?? Really?? The 3 pages I just looked at, they sucked. Also, I didn't say that you can't zoom in like that if you're not a professional. I said you can't take professional pictures if your not professional. I do have experience in photography as well. I also said if you were a professional then you wouldn't need an account on here, I never said that professionals didn't have an account on here

Memento-Mori-96 Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
are you kidding me? she's the mind behind many nickelodeon cartoons  like power puff girls or my little pony. so yes she is fucking famous and her stuff doesn't suck... at least not for a large part of cartoon fans. 
yeah but every artist started as an amateur and when you look at woxys profile it says she already is a member of this comunity for many years. so of course she didn't start as a professional but now she is and she just keeps this account going although she takes professional photos and i really don't see any flaws in here. moreover if you take a closer look at her works you can see improvement and changes in style which are too clues to the originality of her photos.

Compared to what you show, the work of that artist are godlike.
I've seen the work of pros that were shittier photos than some of other hobbyists. Pro doesn't mean that you are good, it means you earn your money with it and it just needs to satisfy the customer. And yes, even some hobbyists have the damn expensive gear.
