I have a quest to capture Minecraft; its beauty, wonderment and creativity. This is but one, of my many to come shots of the world we call Minecraft.

I hope you will enjoy my quest to capture -- it will be quite an adventure!

Hello, my name is Declan, or RIVANE in Minecraft.

Contact me through if you feel using a deviantART note or comment is not an option for you (or if you'd rather not have to make a deviantART account just to contact me.).

I am an amateur photographer who is applying his photography and photo editing skills to capture Minecraft. I enjoy finding various builds and getting to know their creator(s) if I can. If you have anything in Minecraft that you'd like me to document, contact me and let me know -- I might just have some free time!

In case you're wondering what I do, I'll explain. I have this urge to capture whatever is awesome or beautiful in Minecraft. Whether that means it's something someone built or a beautiful natural scene, doesn't matter, so long as it's exceptional in some way, I'll capture and share it.

You may come to realize that I document a lot of Minecraft builds, most of which I have had no part in building. One role I like to play is the 'documentary photographer'. I feel a need to document things in Minecraft because, sadly, they do not always last. Sometimes servers shutdown, or things get destroyed. I don't want people's work to be completely lost, so I do what I can to preserve their efforts. There's also just a lot of amazing stuff out there that I just have to share.

I aim to capture a build and then present it in an artistic (Usually photographic) way, while still retaining high-detail of the build. I am constantly evolving and adapting my techniques to improve the end result. Whenever possible, I credit the builder and the server on which the build was created. I also don't hold back, all my images are downloadable and modifiable, if you see a use for them, you're welcome to them! Just please be sure to credited me, (MinecraftPhotography) the builder(s) and the server -- we all put in a lot of effort for you to have the image!

As I stated before, if you have anything you'd like me to document, contact me. If it's really good, I'll probably share it on my page. It would be a pleasure to talk with you!
I have long-considered MinecraftPhotography a place where I post images of other people's work. There have been a few exceptions, but not many, and they were quite some time ago (Underway Minecraft Build is an example of something I built.) I do occasionally build things (I would like to build a lot more), and when I build them, it would be nice to post them somewhere.

My plan was to make another dA page devoted to the things I build and the interactions I have with other Minecraft players, but I found there to be some issues with that. I have decided, instead, to post my own builds and Minecraft activities on MinecraftPhotography.

I do not build things very often, because I tend to get bored, but when I do build something and make a post about it, I will make sure it's worth taking a look at.

What are your thoughts?

It's the 4th of July here in America, and while I won't be involved in any real fireworks, I thought I'd share this image from my gallery.

What are your 4th of July plans? Fireworks in Minecraft, perhaps?

Happy birthday, America!

Would You like Me to Hold a Building Contest? (There Would Be a Prize!)

I do document other people's creations. I do also share the things I make. My gallery has folders that keep it all organized.
