I'm one of the Community Volunteers for General Photography, along with my partner in crime, Mrs-Durden.

This guide explains what I look for in a Daily Deviation (along with examples of past features) and how to send a suggestion to me. If you aren't sure what Daily Deviations are all about, this knowledge base article covers it.

The photography categories you can suggest to me from are:

  • Architecture
  • Conceptual
  • Darkroom
  • Fireworks
  • Horror & Macabre
  • Infrared
  • Other
  • People & Portraits (Body Art, Classic Portraits, Emotive Portraits, Expressive, Infants & Children, Other, Self-Portraits, Spontaneous Portraits, Weddings)
  • Still Life
  • Transportation
  • Urban and Rural

I mostly feature dark, experimental, psychedelic, visually challenging, subversive or otherwise unconventional photography with style and substance. I like weird. Give me weird.

If you want to see the sort of photos I've been featuring lately, check out this collection. There are some more examples of the kind of thing I'm looking for at the bottom of this post. They're all beautiful and you should look at them even if you aren't going to suggest DDs to me. But you should also suggest DDs to me.

The practical criteria:

  • I can't feature anyone who has had a DD in the last 6 months.
  • I can't DD anyone who hasn't logged in to DA in the last 30 days.
  • I don't feature people who are very new to the site.
  • I only feature work submitted to DA within the last year or so, to ensure I'm representing the artist's current skill level.
  • Suggested pieces should be correctly categorised in terms of the gallery they're in on DA.
  • If you're not sure if something ticks the above metaphorical boxes, send it through anyway and I'll check it out.
  • I endeavour not to feature the same small number of artists ad infinitum, but I'm fine with featuring artists who I featured during previous years.
  • I give literally zero consideration to how popular or not an artist or a photograph is when it comes to Daily Deviations. I do not care. At all.

How to suggest a Daily Deviation to me:

  • Send me a note with a thumbnail of the photograph you'd like to suggest. That's it. Just do that.
  • Please don't include a reason why you think something 'deserves' to be featured. It won't make any difference. The feature is about the photo.
  • Keep it to one suggested artist per note, please. If someone's entire gallery is incredible and you can't pick one photo, feel free to include a couple of options, but seriously, only one artist per note.
  • Please DO NOT send me more than one DD suggestion note per day. Quality over quantity!
  • I don't reply to DD suggestion notes unless I'm going to feature your suggestion.
  • YOU CAN SUGGEST YOUR OWN WORK! In fact, please do. I admire the hell out of people who can get behind their own creative output and I obviously won't list you as the suggester.

Finally, although there are two of us looking after the sprawling visual expanse that is General Photography, please only suggest a thing to one of us.

If you have any questions about any of this or you want to know how to make vegan peanut butter cups, note me :heart: :camera:

I'm one of the General Photography Community Volunteers, so you can suggest Daily Deviations to me from a bunch of really awesome categories. This journal explains how to do that and what I'm looking for in the photography I feature :heart: :camera:
