(Update at the bottom)
Got myself a new camera the other day, so I've been taking some photographs. It's always good to be able to take photographs myself, because after all Norwegian photos are often easier to use in a Norwegian context, and very often it's difficult to find good photos from Norway in Google.
Being a big stock user myself, I thought I could submit some shots for stock too and there's more to come.
If you want to use the stock shots, then you don't need to either credit me, or contact me or whatever. And you certainly don't need to use it only within Deviantart. C'mon!
Just do as you like.
I'm naturally happy to see if you've done something cool, but if you actually have a life, you have probably better things to do.
Do note that some of the objects of the photos have rights of their own, so outright commercial use of pictures of buildings etc. should probably not be attempted - for your own sake. But there's no problem if you want to use it in publications or artwork in general.
As this is not a stock-only account, I might mention that ALL PHOTOS are stock. Just so you don't need to check closer on all the pictures.
The ornamental stuff is not stock, but on the other hand, if you have a nice idea that involves a little more than just tampering with them, then I should be positive. I.e. if they become a piece in a bigger project.
If you want to use them as they are, in some publication/CD cover whatever, then that's OK with credit. (I have lot's more if you're interested.)
The collages are not stock. A guy actually used one of my collages in his own collage(without me knowing), and the result was that it was impossible for outsiders to see if it was me who plagiarized him or if it was him who plagiarized me - because his style was too close to mine. It made me fucking pissed off.
That's why I'm not happy with it.
