Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United Kingdom

I came to deviantART looking for an outlet to share my literature work. Imagine my surprise when I look back now and find myself, eight years later, a Photography Community Volunteer and an avid Photographer. In fact, I've just spent a year taking a handful of Photos every day as part of the 365 challenge. If you want to talk to me about motivation, inspiration, finding things to Photograph and general 'sticking at stuff' then do please give me a shout!

I started off three years ago as the Abstract and Surreal Photography CV, I then took on Conceptual as well and now I cover General Photography along with 3wyl. My every day work, like so many of us here, is unrelated to Art almost completely.

I'm about to embark on a career as a Care Manager for my local council. I just finished studying a degree in Social Policy and Criminology and I'm about to move into my first house with TouchedD! In my spare time (whenever that is) I like to explore the world with TouchedD, poke dead things with a stick and take my dog who has naughty feet, for walkies.

Where are you Kaz-D?

I am actually here! I thought nobody would notice given that I've scheduled lots of bits and pieces, but it seems you lot do! ;) I'm still in the middle of moving into mine and TouchedD's brand shiny new house. It's a longgggg process. Because it's brand new and shiny there are lots of things that need doing to it (mainly the builders faults) which we are reliant on them to fix like Aerials, cat 5 cables so we can network, painting and patio works outside. Because of this we've 'moved' in but haven't officially started living there full time because as much as we try, we can't live without internet or my parents! However! Here are some photos to show our progress so far....

I have to say, I'm looking forward to Autumn and then Winter because it's a really cosy house. Buddy has settled himself in nicely when he does come over, even claiming a blanket and the sofa for his own! My parents (and TouchedD's) have been incredible in providing us with all the little housey bits a couple going into their first home needs - yesterday we acquired a 'coffee pod drawer' for our Tassimo to sit on and hold all our little discs - definitely NOT a necessity but awesome all the same. We also acquired a label machine to label all the things - that's such fun! :D

In the middle of all this I launched myself into a new job as a care manager for the local council and that has been exhausting - but amazing. Still getting used to the freedom of having finished my degree which has quickly been replaced with evenings unpacking, tidying and putting up bits and pieces on the wall. It's amazing :D

So what about you guys? How has your Summer been so far? Have you seen Galleries month at projecteducate? ;)

Daily Deviation Guidelines


I'm one of two General Photography CVs!

  • 3wyl and I only take Photography suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps). We also cannot feature anything from a gallery that already has CV looking after it. Check out communityrelations for the latest list.
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

How to suggest

Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code (or URL) along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation.
I try and reply to all suggestions made.


“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”

Hi, I submitted two dd suggestions via note (on 10th/11th of this month), I completely understand that you are/can be very busy, but I can't help wonder do I have to wait more than another week to find out you still did not have time to read the note I sent?

Should I send my dd suggestions to another? Can you please help shedding some light on my questions? Thank you so much! Theresa

Hi Theresa,
Thanks for your comment. If you understand that I'm very busy - perhaps you understand that I'm not always able to read my notes within a week of receiving them. I always read my notes within a few days, however with DD suggestions they can be unread for one week they can be unread for two... it's simply the way it is. I have plenty of suggestions and plenty of DDs set to cover the next long while so I'm in no hurry to rush through reading them just because you would like a response. :)

By all means send them to someone else if you wish. Also if you see my latest update (my journal) it states that I'm in the middle of moving house and thus am not here at the moment.

Thank you so much for your reply, i hope i did not sound rude(knowing that you are busy), now that i have the general idea the frequency of you reading the notes, i shall wait patiently indeed!

i am wondering do you have the back-up support you need, like you are in the middle of moving, time is limited and such!? Feel free to use me if you think i am credible enough, i will do a great job no matter what! Just a suggestion...Thank you so much, always ;p
