Hello! We are two sisters from the Netherlands, and together, we go by Mouselemur or Mouselemur Photographer online.
As animal lovers and nature enthousiasts, we spend a lot of our free time either visiting zoos around the country or taking a walk in nature.
"May I use your photos as a reference?"
In using our photos as a reference, you have two options.
For high resolution versions of our best work, visit our profile on wildlifereferencephotos.
For reduced quality but a larger choice and more variety, get inspired by our DeviantArt gallery.
Since the quality of the work we share on DeviantArt has been reduced (to make it less appealing to steal them) we do not charge you if you want to use them as a reference. They are free to use.
However, there are a few conditions:
You ask permission before you use our photos as reference.
You create new, original work; this is not a license to freely distribute our photography elsewhere.
You do not use our photography to create art that is in any way offensive.
If you share your art online, you give credit for our reference photo through a mention (on DeviantArt) a tag (Instagram) or link.
*Permission once given, is granted for all future projects; you don't have to ask permisson to use every specific photo.
If you're a professional artist looking to sell your creations based off of one of our photos as a reference, you do not need to purchase a commercial license.
We truly enjoy seeing the results, and collect all art created by DeviantArt artists who have used our photos as a reference, in a favorites folder as a way to say thank you.

Good to see you are still here, submitting to the 'new' deviantArt. So many of our old friends disappeared after E*****e was rudely thrust upon us all. It changed the site for ever. I only find the motivation to submit photographs now, the exchange of comments etc. just became impossibly time consuming .
Having just heard of a DA friend's passing, I figured I shouldn't wait and postpone stuff. Life is (too) short...
We're both a bit busy with work, kind of stressed-out to be honest Big project with a deadline the first of January. Hopefully thinks calm down a bit after that. They had better, because burn-out is looming around the corner from the way I'm feeling now...
And *knock on wood* if all goes as planned, we will have bought a house come February Yep, two sisters leaving the parental home to move into a house together. We've lived together our whole lives, have a lot of hobbies in common, so we're convinced it'll work out. The house has enough space that we can each go our own way.
Enough about us, how have you been?
Sorry, I lost your comment 😩 dA is so weird with them ugh!!
Awww that's so nice of you! And a few days ago I also got a Christmas cardfrom you, THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I didn't expect it at all! I haven't been sending any cards abroad except one for the family members, I had to cut out on these cause the prices 😩
Good luck with your project! And I hope you'll get some good rest when you're done with it <3
Omg what an amazing news with the house! I hope everything will go smoothly for you with the paperwork and prolly some renovation / furniture shopping. Sounds sooo exciting! 😁💖
I wanna say I'm good but it has been a VERY bumpy year, needing a lot of medical attention and prolly still gonna be this way for some time but it's getting better now 💖 We also renovated a few rooms upstairs earlier last year, that took a lot of time and attention but in a good way, I can't wait for spring to do some more work in the house and the garden :D
