I logged into dA today and was surprised to see over 1,000 messages in my inbox. I figured someone had decided to fave a large part of my gallery. Since this has happened before it wouldn't have been that much of a surprise. As I'm looking into the 1,000 messages I see that it appears that they are all different people favouriting the same photo.
After a bit more research I was pleased to find out that my Snoqualmie Falls photo was one of yesterday's Daily Deviations. This was so exciting. This is my first Daily Deviation in my 6 years on dA.
Here are the rules for using my stock photos:
1. You may NOT not use my photos offsite. Ever. Don't ask. There are no exceptions.
2. Some of my photos are restricted (for example every photo of the Portland Classical Chinese Garden). These are the requiremens of the owners of the locations that the photos are taken. RESTRICTED PHOTOS MAY NOT BE USED FOR ANY COMMERCIAL PURPOSES. THIS INCLUDES dA PRINTS.
3. A link back to my page is required and please comment--with a link to your deviation--on the photo(s) you used so that I can edit my description to highlight your work.
5. Do not use my stock to make other stock or to redistribute it as your own. Example: pre-made backgrounds
Please be aware that any usage of my works outside of these listed rules and requirements will be reported to dA.
