Nature First – The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography

I’m a member of Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography and I am dedicated to following the Nature First 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
