Baiting wildlife for photography remains controversial, often leading to heated debates among photographers. Furthermore, those that do bait rarely admit to doing so.


The camera drone is the wrong tool for wildlife photography projects. Of all of challenges of wildlife photography, perhaps the most difficult to master is appropriate distance: We want to get as close as possible to get great shots, while staying far enough away to keep subjects from becoming stressed, behaving unnaturally, or fleeing.

Marine Photography

Whale watching and marine tourism photography is a multi-million dollar industry. However, both genres of photography, when practised unethically, are altering the behaviours of cetaceans and, in some cases endanger their lives.

National Parks

As photographers, we are responsible for protecting Mother Nature, especially in protected conservation areas. Our behaviour defines our character. If our behaviour defines us as negligent people, it doesn’t just tarnish us – it blackens everyone within the photography community.


As a photographer with fifteen years of experience in the industry, I do not recommend anyone photographing or filming British military bases and nuclear plants.

Besides being unethical and giving genuine photographers and journalists a bad name, someone will likely get hurt in the long run.


Ethics are essential in all genres of photography because if we’re seen to be harming our subjects, no one will want to be photographed by us; in addition, unethical photography sets a lousy name for the entire photography industry.

Talking Ethics in Photography
