Hello! We are two sisters from the Netherlands, and together, we go by Mouselemur or Mouselemur Photography or even Portegiesje online.
As animal lovers and nature enthousiasts, we spend a lot of our free time either visiting zoos and cat cafés 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 .
That moan aside, I trust you are well and 2023 is a good year for you
