Today I was introduced to the organization Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography. I have become a member and am dedicated to following the Nature First Principles:

  • Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.
  • Educate yourself about the places you photograph.
  • Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.
  • Use discretion if sharing locations.
  • Know and follow rules and regulations.
  • Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.
  • Actively promote and educate others about these principles
