Q. Can I use one of your photos as inspiration/reference?
A. Of course! I always love seeing my work used by other people, BUT please let me know, credit me and, of course, link me to it though!
If you want to sell this work afterwards however, I may charge a small usage fee, typically about 10% :)

Q. Can I use your photos as stock/for manipulations?
A. No, sorry. These are my images and not for free use. If you want to discuss this please note me.

Q. Can you critique my work?
A. I really enjoy critiquing other peoples work, so if you want one i'll be more than happy to oblige. Just drop me a note or a comment with the link and i'll get back to you!
Hi everyone,

First off I'd like to confirm that I'm still here, and am still out taking photos. Apologies that I'm not active on here at all recently. I've been very busy with various things over the past few months, and really haven't had time to get on here and respond to anything. This does not mean I'm leaving though! I will try to get back on here a lot more in the next few days, and should have new uploads up soon. I currently have over 1000 comments and nearly 700 deviations to look at, so please bear with me as I catch up!

Many more up-to-date pieces can be found on my Facebook page here:

Or on my website here:

Thanks for bearing with me, and I hope to speak to you soon,

You have been tagged in my journal!…

Many thanks!
All this time I thought I was watching you on dA, and I just realized I wasn't. RECTIFIED.  By the way very lovely work, I have been missing out on a lot.
Chikrata Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Haha thanks Blitz. Really appreciate that :)
GarryKirsch Mar 8, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh yea... where can I get a pair of those binoculars? :)
Chikrata Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Haha. By the look of your profile photo you're already half way there!
GarryKirsch Mar 8, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Your gallery is phenomenal! You are definitely someone to watch. Your sense of composition and the way you use light is really impressive. You do not just capture images, you capture moments. As photographers, we could all learn something from your work.
Chikrata Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks a lot for the kind comment. That really means a lot to me!

I was going through your gallery and realised that I was going to favourite everything, so I think I'll just watch you instead =] truly beautiful photos! (love the crestie, cresties don't get enough love!) 
Chikrata Feb 22, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Thank you very much, I really appreciate that! I'm glad you like my work, and hope you like what's to come :)

I agree! Cresties are amazing animals! I'll have to add another now..
