Hello, my name is Lydia and I'm the photographer and manager of this stock-account. While there are several models working in single, couple and group shoots to provide interesting high quality stock photos, chances are it's usually me who's replying to your comments. Let me know if you need something or if you feel like a chat or want to know something about my models.
Have a look at the left to meet my regular models :)

:bulletgreen: STOCK RULES aka TERMS OF USE :bulletgreen:

The three most important ones:

Create an original artwork.
Credit my stock with a link to the image and/or the account.
Notify me via dA's new "mention-system" OR by note/comment when you've uploaded it somewhere off dA.

Feel free to use my images as artistic stock and reference for photo-manipulations, drawings, paintings, sculpture, 3D or any visual media.
Do NOT use my images in an unaltered or barely altered way as commercial stock to illustrate ads, flyers, articles, youtube-videos, avatars, de/motivational posters or song-lyric-bases.

:bulletgreen: Additional rules and FAQ: :bulletgreen:

You may post your original artwork created with my stock anywhere (tumblr, personal webpages, facebook, etc) as long as you give appropriate credit to your sources.

For commercial use please contact me first!
I'll most likely give you permission anyway but if you use my model stock I may have to check back with the model, especially when it comes to manips and their faces are still clearly distinguishable)
EXCEPTION: The Apassionata photos are NOT to be used in ANY commercial way!

On dA: Do not repost my images as photography and do not use them to create your own stock (pixel doll bases, premade backgrounds, simplified reference models, line-arts for others to colour in etc). Talk to me if you are unsure of whether it's okay to use my stock for your project.

Outside of dA: Do not redistribute my images anywhere without proper credit. Sharing on facebook, tumblr etc. is okay as long as you make it clear who created these photos, what they were created for originally and link back to this account and the terms of use.

Concerning packs: Click on the preview image to see a bigger preview image. Click "download" to get all the single images (in a big version) in one rar-pack. If there are links in the descriptions you have the option to only get single photos of the pack, these single pics are located in my scraps.

Feel free to request or suggest a stock series or single images but since scheduling a stock shoot is always a bit difficult and often happens spontaneously I cannot promise anything. Politely worded requests have a bigger chance of being taken seriously.

Respect my models and refrain from any derogatory or sexualizing comments. We do not consider "Awesome tits" and "She's hot" a compliment and even if it's meant as one, this is not the point of a stock-gallery. If you're only here for the eye-candy you are free to do that but please keep it to yourself.
I will always politely decline any fetish-related requests.

It's dusty in here...

Yes, I'm still alive.
Yes, there are new photos (wedding photos mostly, some castle interior shots).
Yes, I will finish the gallery-revamp at one point.... at least I hope so.

It's been a while, I know, but I'm not going to start apologising or explaining. I was busy with real life and I enjoyed every minute of it. I did keep up with messages and notes but I just couldn't be arsed to clean the gallery anymore and spent my time doing fun things with colleagues and new friends and lots of pints of cider.
I regret nothing :p

However, I do poooossibly have a new victim for stock purposes and as soon as we're done training for new walking and coach tours and get some actual free time on our hands, we might have a go at some billowing cloak stock, maybe even historical dresses (if I can borrow them from work) and so on.
Maybe you'll see more of me again this year. No promises just yet as high season is just around the corner, but there's tentative plans.

Right now I should be bunkering down and learning stuff for my upcoming 12-hour-tours to Loch Ness. So it's the perfect moment for taking up the broom and continue cleaning the gallery, which I haven't done in almost a year, wouldn't you agree? Boy, procrastination sure is fun.

Anyway. How's 2015 treating you so far? Anyone thinking about coming to Scotland? It's brilliant here.


Casting Call!

I said it before, I'll say it again: if there's anyone among my watchers actually FROM Edinburgh or Glasgow or the general South Scotland area who is interested in a meet-up and maybe some joint stockventure projects, I'm absolutey in.
Likewise, if you have a trip to Edinburgh planned, shoot me a note, I can show you around if you like :)

Hi there, not sure if my mention will be notified to you because I updated with it some time after upload. The reason was because I was stupid and careless and overly excited about the submition that i forgot about it. I am terribly sorry. 
I like your stocks and I am glad I found them. Here is my artwork
