This family run website is a continually expanding database of affordable wildlife photos, in the form of digital downloads, for artists to use as reference for their artwork. They are royalty-free wildlife photos so, once purchased, you can use the downloaded high resolution photos as art reference as many times as you like. Uses include: as reference for traditional artwork (drawings, paintings, pastels), scratchboards, carvings, sculptures, cross-stitch, and hand painted digital art. You may also make prints/reproductions of your artwork. Includes both personal and commercial use. For more information please take a look at our FAQs
