Should I change my name on DA to something shorter and snappier...? 

30 deviants said No, you've had 'shadow-and-flame-86' for going on 5 years now, its not that long and it'd be weird!
16 deviants said Yes change it to something shorter that has 'Dr' in it to celebrate becoming one XD
8 deviants said Yes change it to something shorter but more serious and to do with your website (e.g. kjrphotography)
2 deviants said Yes change it to something shorter that still has 'shadow and flame' in it (e..g SaF)

:star:The plan moving forward...:star:

So I am woefully behind on my uploads, like over a year behind XD

The only way to catch up that I can see is to do some mass uploads, so I appologise in advance for all the shots you'll be getting in your inboxes, I hope that you will enjoy at least some of them! They will cover basically my adventures from december 2013 until today, so all the shots from the last year basically.

I will do them in batches by trip chronologically, so I will do the New Zealand shots from dec 2013 first and move on from there until I am cuaght up!

Then hopefully I will be able to go back to only a few shots uploaded at a time like I used to do, and I much prefer this way too. Hopefully I will never get so behind ever again!

:star:Comissions - are now closed for the time being:star:

I would just like to simultansously appologise to all the people who commissioned me before I went away from DA and thank them for being so lovely and patient with me all this time. Everyone who has ordered a commission and paid already will still get their picture, and I now only have one person's commission left to complete!

To draw List...

:bulletblue: Commission for Ciameth
:bulletblue: Victor's adult reference for Windsonde
:bulletblue: Milvus' 5th challenge for Windsonde
:bulletblue: Igbo's arrival for Hetherev (3 parts) II
:bulletblue: Ar'luc pic
:bulletblue: 5x FR doodles
:bulletblue: 1 FR gift art

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United Kingdom

Hello everyone :aww:

I'm a zoologist who works on marine mammals, I've just got my PhD in seal behaviour, endocrinology and neurobiology and now I work with dolphins. I love wildlife and I hope to spend the rest of my life in the field studying animals just like I am now.

I learnt photography out of nessecity for my job and have taken it up as a hobby because its fun.
