Head Admin


Admin Team


Hi everyone :wave:

It's been a while (a long while) since we last wrote a journal and I apologize for that. We're just two active admins here which is how I'll come to the first point of business:

:star: We're looking for admins to join our team :star:
Zoo-photographers once was *the* group you'd join if you were a zoo photographer. Since there are actually a lot of zoo photographers in the DA community, I hope one of you would be interested in joining our (now) small-scale group in the backroom and keep things running and maybe make the group more active again :)
If you're interested in the position of admin, please send me or the group a note :aww:

:star: New Folders Open :star:
The moment where you've all been waiting for: I've switched up the open folders. Instead of animal species, we're focusing back on continents.
It's really important that you actually know where the zoo animal you've photographed actually comes from; if a photo is submitted to the wrong folder, it won't be accepted.

:star: The group :star:
Please keep in mind that the group is focused on zoo photography only. This means your photo must be taken at a zoo, of an animal that is included in the zoo's collection. If your photo wasn't taken at a zoo, we won't be able to accept it.
On that note, it really helps if you've included the zoo you've taken your photo in your deviation tite, description or tags. If it's unclear whether your photo was taken at a zoo, we'll ask you first before a decision is made ;)

If you have any questions, check the group wall to see if you can't find answer there. If it's not mentioned on the wall, don't hesitate to ask - we'll do our best to answer you :aww:

Our brand-new group has a certain affinity with your group scope. Ofc there is a lot of filtering and selection going on like there should be on any group. We kindly ask to affiliate with you.

As I learned the hard way, my photos do not belong here so I will be leaving the group.
