Hello to everybody,

In my free time I usually visit European Zoos. I have more than 20.000 photos and more than 11.000 are already on flickr.
I selected them to albums for you (giraffes, okapis, elephants, rhinos, tigers, tapirs...) So if somebody needs reference photos to sculpting, he/she will find lot of in my albums.
I hope it will be useful for some people.
Here are the albums: https://www.flickr.com/photos/collections/72157646246906189/
On the top the newest on the end of the albums my oldest photos. Of course older photos are not as good quality as the newer. I uploaded new photos on everyweek.

Have a nice day!

A brilliant idea, thanks for sharing this, it really is helpful and I certainly appreciate it.


I love the picture of the young gemsbok fighting with the other antelopes. Great photos.

I just looked at your photos. Incredibly, so many and very good photos!
Especially the pictures of the great apes are very impressive.
It seems at the pictures, if you know every one of them in person.
I think someone can make so good photos only if you really spend much time with these animals and watching them exactly. The photos are so full of character. Really, very, very good. Thanks, I will look at your pictures again very often.

I think this topic is actually so good and useful for anyone who wants to sculpt wild animals that I should perhaps pin it to the top in tutorials section in this forum, what do you think? Very Happy

It's no problem Anna. Good idea. :)
Feel free to use them for everybody as reference photos to sculptures!
But don't use them to other way without my permission!
This is the only rule!

Of course Noemi! It was for me always a bit difficult to find photos of the certain species in good resolution and from several angles, and your albums are just what is needed to work on sculptures. cheers
And, of course I'm not gonna use them in any other purpose. Smile

Other sentences not specially for you Cristophe, they are general, for everybody.
Sorry, my English is not so good, so sometimes I can't tell well what I want. If you (or anybody) want to use it, it's not problem if ask permission from me. For example if you ask one for avatar, I will say ok. I would like to know who want to use them. I usually sell my photos and there are lot of people who stole, use and edit or fake my photos. These are what I hate.
