Arathrael. Get yours at

My most interesting photos.

Continually trying to find the time to give Flickr the attention it deserves!

I like to take photos of a range of subjects, but a significant number of my photos are of pet rats. They're always great subjects (if not always the easiest to photograph).

I now have a Canon 60D (I upgraded from the 350D eventually). Main lenses are the Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro lens, a Canon 10-22mm lens, and a Tamron 70-300mm lens.

If you want to use any of my photos for any purpose, just send me a flickrmail. Permission will usually be given for (reasonable) non-commercial purposes. For commercial purposes you can also contact me, and/or there's the Getty option. Higher resolutions available.

Thanks to Getty I've so far had photos published (that I know of) on the Financial Times Deutschland news site, the Mirror news site, and in Scientific American Mind magazine.

Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

    "Rats, Rats and more Rats! A excellent capture each and every click, the beauty of the rodent families that Arathrael posses is breathtaking. He displays their emotions in a riveting array of photographs that take my breath away every time I look at time. Excellent eye for photography, and cute models to boot! Surely one of the best rat photographers on Flickr to date!"
