Sammy, my beloved old brother, best friend and childhood hero.
Hope to meet you again in another life.
*14th August 2000 – †25th February 2015
I'm a german artist with a great passion for photography, mainly wolves and dogs, though I also occasionally do environmental and people photography. Another profession of mine is art, be it digital or traditional. I've learned graphic design in a technical college and studied computing science in Ireland. Currently I'm employed as a web and graphic designer.
Frequently asked question:
Q: Do you work in a wildlife park / with wolves? Or do you own some?
Sorry for the inconveniences regarding Dawnthieves. We have been changing providers and even though it’s far from finished I decided to just go online with Dawnthieves 2.0.
I've been working on a complete reboot of Dawnthieves for so many months now. This is also why Dawnthieves has been so inactive for the past year. We’re very sorry for that. It's not like no one took new photos but rather that uploading to the old site had become redundant. We’re still in the process of uploading all the thousands of photos to the new website and it’s a lot of work that takes a lot of time. Because now all the photography will be uploaded into a database and every single photo will have individual tags. You see, aside from all the programming I had to do to get the gallery to work the way needed for Dawnthieves, going through thousands of photos and giving each of them keywords is what’s literally taking months. We’re still not done, the new website is still a work in progress, please keep that in mind if you get a shock over not finding half the stuff. The old website with all the images is still there and accessible! You can reach it via old.dawnthieves.de
However, even though Dawnthieves 2.0 is still pretty empty aside from my own photos, it has a big advantage over the old site. You guys are finally able to search for images.
The new site also has a completely new structure. You won’t find the images sorted by photographer anymore but by subspecies and park. This was necessary as, unfortunately, the new system doesn’t allow images to be sorted into multiple categories. This was the most convenient solution that should be both user- and administrator-friendly. You’ll still have the option to see the pictures from a specific photographer, though.
1. You can add the first name of a photographer to a keyword you want to search for.
2. Each category will have buttons that link to the photos of the respective photographer in that category.
We’re still in the process of adding these buttons to the categories. We have to cheat our way around here and use search links and remodeling the search was a little complicated, haha.
Aside from a bunch of puppy photos (which I will add during this week) and new photos, all of my photography is already online. The other photographers are a bit slower, so be a little patient (or hustle them just a tiny bit, they might need that *coughcough*)
Also, none of us are native English speakers. If some of the formulations on the website make you cringe or are just completely wrong, please, please tell us!
Thank you all so much for sticking with us
