Help spread the word…

We encourage all our members to help grow the Nature First movement by socializing with your family, friends and followers. Here are some simple ways to bring awareness to the Nature First Principles:

  • Use #naturefirst when posting about nature photography ethics on social media.

  • Add a personal statement to your website showing your dedication to following the Nature First Principles. Here’s an example:


I’m a proud member of Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography and I’m 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
