I don't want stock images to be used. Only original designs.
Style: reasonably sophisticated and minimal; clear reference to wildlife/photography. Compact (not spread out). Width/height more or less the same. Preferred animal images: elephants, great apes, big cats, rhinos, birds of prey. Some suggestion of adventure (i.e. animals not too tame/friendly looking, but not exaggeratedly wild either).
Logo needs to be clear when small (e.g. when logo is part of a small watermark in the corner of a photo)
The challenge is to get the photography element in without using clunky images of cameras. One option is to suggest the camera through use of modest outlines (example 9, although I don't like this logo much) or using part of the camera, such as the aperture (e.g. 2,6,8,11,22). Or turn the camera into an animal (7).
Colours: neutral, not ostentatious. Preference for black and white with maybe some grey.
