What is Core Membership?More Like This
Earlier today, DeviantArt released an announcement explaining what "Core Membership Is..." To complement that announcement, I've penned a few of my own thoughts about what Core Membership means to me.
DeviantArt owes its existence to its community. The inspiring, pulsating life force that began 15 years ago with a small group of artists and art appreciators has grown more than anyone could have ever imagined. A true force of motivation and support on the Web, our community is one-of-a-kind in its service to the artistic greater good. And it always has been.
Whether you take the extra moment to answer a Note from a student of art hoping to learn from you, leave a thought-provoking comment on a moving piece of art, or simply watch a deviant, you are invested in your fellow artistic man, and that has all happened naturally from day one. The fact that you're here,

Anyway, I should probably apologize for how inactive I've been this year. My grandparents are loosing speed pretty quickly and it's fallen to my family to take care of them. Add in some health issues of my own, really full summer, and there isn't much time for stock shoots, though I've tried to squeeze them in whenever possible. I'm hoping to get one more in before school starts and then just consider me dead for the next few months.
I'm starting college next month and I'm about as unexcited as I can possibly be. Oh well, could be worse.
Now on to more exciting things! I've had so many amazing stock uses this year, some of which are showcased below. And ANOTHER DD!!! How does this keep happening!? I'm actually sort of confused as to how I've managed to get three of them in two years. As I understand, one of the requirements is that there needs to be at least a year between awards. Not that I'

What has happened to deviantART?I thought I'd take a few this morning and write this journal because well, quite frankly I can.More Like This
Granted, I'm not around here much these days and I'm busy working, doing what I love, photography. That being said however, I couldn't stay quiet any longer.
What in the world has happened to this site? Usually I blow things like this over and mind my own business but when it hits my wallet, well that's a different entirely and something needs to be said.
The site here seems to be dying, literally. I've noticed not only a huge drop in my viewership but also in other high profile photographers work as well. In fact, it's safe to say that in that regards, things have absolutely tanked and crashed and burned. Something is wrong with this picture.
My print sales have absolutely tanked. Other people I'm friends with are saying the exact same thing as well. It seems that our shop here on DA is now an empty Main Street and we're not entirely sure why but would like to know w
