DD Guidelines


I'm the Photojournalism CV!

Suggestion Guidelines

:bulletblack: I only take Photojournalism suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps, portraits, or traditional art).

:bulletblack: Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?

:bulletblack: Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

:bulletred: Ask yourself this: Is it a newsworthy image? Is it something you would see in a local or national paper? If yes, keep going!

:bulletblack: Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page, put DD Suggestion in the subject, and include the thumb code along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation. Please keep 1 suggestion per note.

:bulletblack: I strongly encourage that suggested images have some sort of information relating to the picture in the artist's comments (description of event, date, location, name(s) of subjects if applicable, etc).

:bulletblack: Don't hesitate to self-promote!

:star: PJ often works in the realm of controversy.  If you’ve received any unsettling comments or notes because your image was selected as a DD, shoot me a note and I’ll do my best to settle the issue.  

I may not reply to all suggestions but I do read, consider and appreciate every suggestion :heart:.
I can't believe it's already May. Time's been speeding by!

Warmer weather (everywhere but Maryland, it seems) means it's more comfortable to shoot. And sports teams are starting to compete!

Check out April's photojournalism DD awardees and give them some love.  =)

Soldier - Mother - Teacher - Photographer - Caffeine Addict - Animal Freak

I'm a combat documentation/production specialist (combat camera for us lazy folks) currently teaching the photography portion of my job. Outside of the military, I enjoy photographing for the horse rescue and the rodeo when it rolls into DC.

I'm fairly certain my children or my cats are going to be the death of me.

I can very easily be bribed with caffeine and cuddly animals.

And yes, I'm female. I checked. ;)

You're absolutely welcome Richard!  The world needs to see what's going on in B-more, not just the craziness of the riots.  :hug:

Yes, Kristina, that's absolutely true.  Oddly, just after I shot that image, I walked past 2 police commanders from Pennsylvania.  They were talking and wondering how much longer the national and international media would remain at the intersection of North & Pennsylvania Avenues.  I politely joined their conversation, and said that since the State's Attorney had filed charges that morning (Friday) against the officers, most likely the out-of-town media would be gone  by Sunday evening - unless for some reason new violence broke out.  That turned out to be true.

The good news was that while the electronic media only played up the violence and looting, papers like the New York Times, Washington Post, and even the Wall Street Journal featured the peaceful protests, and analysis of the underlying problems, and what was behind all of the protests.  I was impressed. :)

Anyway, thanks again! :aww:

Great.  Patience always pays off.  Maybe it's just the military training kicking in, but it makes more sense to keep around and document the recovery efforts - that's just as important (if not more) than the riot itself.
