DINO LAND GRAPHICS
It has always been a dream of mine to create an online photo database of my travels in paleontology, and now because I received the scanner, my dream has become a reality. Despite the fact that I am only 15 years old, I have traveled to many interesting paleo sites over the years. These sites span from the Black Hills Institute of Geology out in the Western US, to the Field Museum in Chicago, over to the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, and clear overseas to several institutions in Italy. These are only a few of the many places I have traveled to.
Of course, all of these museums have amazing displays, exhibits, and fossil mounts, spanning from dinosaurs to mammals to birds to lizards to amphibians. Most of them also have tremendous invertebrate collections, too. I have been sure to bring my camera to each institution in order to take photos for my personal collection, and now I am able to put these on the web! Because of the tremendous size of the database, I have gone ahead and listed the institutions below. Just click on whichever museum you would like and you will receive a large list of specimens. Each specimen has its own page, equipped with a photo I have taken and a brief description.
Any webmaster or magazine/newsletter editor who would like to use these photos for their sites and publications are definitely allowed to do so, as long as you give credit to me (Steve Brusatte) and the Dino Land Website. Also, it may be best to contact me first if you will be using the photo for a print publication, so I can get you a higher quality image. Please use the e-mail below when contacting me.
Also, I would like to note that I have tried to keep the color true on each photo to relay the unique lighting conditions in each dinosaur hall. Some of the photos may be a little too dark or too light, but you can be assured that the color reflects the authentic conditions in each hall.
Thank you very much, and please enjoy the extensive database I have posted!
