I am proud to have signed up to Nature First, the new alliance for responsible nature photography.
All members agree to abide by the following principles:
1 Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.
2 Educate yourself about the places you photograph.
3 Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.
4 Use discretion if sharing locations.
5 Know and follow rules and regulations.
6 Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.
7 Actively promote and educate others about these principles
At a time when the natural environment is under threat like never before, it is so important that nature photographers act responsibly at all times and ensure that we never cause harm to the places we visit
