PHotography Workshop Leaders and Educators
As respected professionals in the field of nature photography, many look to you as experts. They observe your behavior and carefully listen to your advice. You have an incredible opportunity to make a positive impact on large audiences by exemplifying and promoting the Nature First Principles. We would like to partner with you to grow the movement for responsible nature photography.
Lead by example. Acting ethically, and explaining those ethical choices, is even more important when in front of a group.
Keep group sizes small. Actively minimize your group’s impact on the places you visit and actively work to protect the experiences of those around you. It is your responsibility to make sure that your group is not disruptive to others.
Carefully consider the ramifications of taking a group to sensitive locations before doing so.
Follow rules and regulations, including permit requirements.
Consider showing examples of things that might make a good photograph but that should not be photographed if it requires damaging or threatening natural features (i.e., teach your students that it’s OK to walk away from a potentially good photo in some circumstances).
