Membership and devWATCHER Guidelines

Membership in this group is reserved for high-level artistic nude and fetish photographers and models with a significant gallery of qualifying work. That means applicants will need to have a dA gallery containing a large number of outstanding images that meet the group's submission requirements for artistic nude and/or BDSM fetish photography (see "Submission Guidelines" below blog entry box at right).

"Fans" who are not themselves art nude or fetish photographers, or those whose work is not up to the level of the group's membership standards, are welcome to become +deviantWatchers of the group by clicking the “watch this group” button in the upper right corner of this page.

TO APPLY FOR MEMBERSHIP, YOU MUST:
1. Become a +deviantWatcher of the group by clicking the “Watch” button in the upper right corner of this page.
2. Send a "join" request by clicking “Join our Group” button in the top bar of this page.

NOTE: The group's admin message center only shows NEW +deviantWatcher notifications. So if you are already a Watcher of the group from a past time, please comment this on your membership request at the time you apply. Otherwise your membership request may be delayed or declined as it will appear that you have not followed the membership requirements by first becoming a Watcher of the group.

Super Group Support

"Respect Us" is not currently a Super Group. If anyone wishes to donate points toward reinstating the Super Group status, I will be happy to use the points to purchase that upgrade once the required total has been amassed. I do not use points for anything else on dA, so all donated points will be used solely for this specific purpose.

Group Info

Respect Us is a group for advanced artistic nude and fetish photographic artists to exhibit their work, network, and raise their profiles in a drama-free atmosphere where artistic nudity is not seen as porn.

Models, photographers, advanced hobbyists, semi-professionals and professionals are welcome.

If you are an artistic nude and/or fetish photography-based artist, feel free to apply for membership in the group so that you can submit your images to the group gallery. Please see the "Membership and devWATCHER Guidelines" box, above on this page.

For fans of artistic nude and fetish photography, you need only to +devWATCH the Group to show your support and receive our gallery submissions and group features. Please see the "Membership and devWATCHER Guidelines" box, above on this page.

Nude, fetish, sensual, and erotic art does NOT equal porn and we are striving for the respect we deserve as artists and NOT Pornographers.

Submission Guidelines

*Image Submissions*
The Respect-Us gallery is a place for group members to submit THEIR OWN works to the group. Please do not submit deviations by artists other than yourself to the group gallery. Deviations by artists other than yourself may be submitted to the group's Featured Favorites collection.

The gallery submission limit is TWO IMAGES PER WEEK for images submitted to the Fetish and/or Artistic Nude folders.

:bulletblack: Contests and challenges do not count as part of your submission limit.
:bulletblack: Images that have previously been awarded a DD, if submitted to the "Members' Daily Deviations" folder, do not count as part of your submission limit.
:bulletblack: Image Donations do not count toward the submission limit.

Please take the time to read the detailed Submission Guidelines for Artistic Nudes and Fetish Portraits:
Artistic Nudes: respect-us.deviantart.com/jour…
Fetish Portraits: respect-us.deviantart.com/jour…

*Accepting or Declining Images*
Decisions will be based upon the overall quality of images, and to factors such as partial or implied nudity, and the context and intent of Fetish Portraits. If an image is declined, you can ask for the reason, but we are not open to arguments with the admins' decisions.

*Suggesting Favorites*
Each member can suggest up to TWO images per week to the group's “Featured Favorites” collection.

:bulletblack: Members can use this feature to showcase their own works and/or other artists whose images they hold in high regard.
:bulletblack: Group favorites must still meet the group's themes of nude or fetish photos.
:bulletblack: Please DO NOT submit to the NAMED favorites collections unless you are the named artist submitting your own work to your own named collection.

Hi

Having been taking a break from photography (I was doing quite a bit of dance imagery) I want to get back into working in the medium.

I am not sure if this is the place to ask (and apologies if it is not) but I am looking for female models to work with. I prefer to work collaboratively, sharing ideas and working together on producing the final images.

I am in UK, if anyone is interested, please get in touch and we can have a chat about ideas and details, etc. Many thanks.
