Introducing JACAC
Born in Coimbra, Portugal, ages ago. An architect by trade, I have always worked in photography since I was a boy when people said that my photos were different and I captured the feeling of people. I worked as a professional photographer for a cars magazine and worked the formula 1 championship, rally, moto gp and several other sports, for six years when I was at university learning architecture. After that

Where to Submit Your APN Photos!
Greetings, everyone!
Anyone who has spent any amount of time browsing the Animals, Plants, & Nature (lovingly and commonly referred to as APN) photography category on DeviantArt knows there are quite a few subcategories of all different subjects! Some are very specific and some can easily overlap one another. You may even have a photo that fits in an APN subcategory but fits an entirely DIFFERENT photography category too! Remember, your photo may fit more than one category but you can only choose one! You have to decide what you think the best fit is based on the subject matter and your artistic intention.
This guide was created to hopefully shed some light on where you should be submitting your APN photographs (and therefore where you should be submitting to the AnimalsPlantsNature group!). Each subcategory below will include the name, commonly overlapping subcategories, the description for the gallery, and a couple examples. Let's dive in
