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:.

August is off to a hot start!  How many of you have checked your local newspapers or town websites for events going on?  It's a good opportunity to get some photojournalism in!  ;)

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. ;)

devart should definately take distance from war glorifying pictures. be so kind and human to not feature such pics any longer. devart is visited by mostly younger people with no strong own opinion.

I'm sorry you feel that way.  As a professional combat photographer, I'm glad that DeviantArt doesn't discriminate against my profession.  I understand that not everyone appreciates this job, but not all of us are here to glorify war.  True combat cameramen are supposed to document exactly what is going on in front of their lens - no distorting the scene with their political agendas (either for or against the war).  

Combat photography opens up a lane of communication with other members and I have no problem telling curious members that war absolutely sucks.  It sucks being away from home, it hurts like nothing else losing someone closer than family.  

As a photojournalist, it's news.  News that people should be aware of no matter which nation is involved.  

I hope you understand where I'm coming from.  

Have a good day!  =)

Now Kristina, certainly you know by now that I never worry about such things. :laughing:
It's always nice to hear from you, whenever I do. . . ;)
