Photography is a medium that was created to be shared. We share captured moments with those who take delight in them and are delighted ourselves if our photography can be of any use to them. Therefore the photography on this website is free to use for various non-profit purposes. Dawnthieves was created to make photos of wolves and other predators available to artists and creative minds or those who want to learn, study and educate and need good pictures to show and look at. You can use our photos for avatars, for Roleplaying Games, for photo-manipulations, as drawing references, for school or study projects - to just name a few examples.
However we do not allow any commercial usage of our photos and that also includess commissions and point commissions on deviantArt or any other website. While it would be unfair towards us photographers to earn money from something we offered for free, there is another important legal reason as to why we do not allow commercial usage: We have no right to do so. All photos in this gallery were taken in wildlife parks and zoos and therefore any commercial agreement would have to be made with the respective organisation AND the photographer. So please just don't or you might risk that legal action will be taken.
To shortly repeat our rules of usage:
- you must give appropriate credit (name the photographer) and provide a link to the website (best would be a link to the detail view of the photo you used)
- you are not allowed to use our photography for commercial purposes (this also includes virtual currencies like deviantArt points or commissions in general)
The Copyright always remains with the respective photographer, though they assume no liability of what the photos will be used for.
