As a Nature First Ambassador for the Texas Region, it is important to me to provide quality content dedicated to the #NatureFirst principles from my point of view. Included in this are tips and guidelines to help photographers become better stewards of the Earth while also becoming better photographers.

Check out these Nature First resources and seasonal guides to help put Nature First in Texas.


What is Nature First?

Nature First is built on a set of core principles that help communicate how each of us can enjoy nature photography responsibly. The Nature First Principles were developed to help educate and guide both professional and recreational photographers in sustainable, minimal impact practices that will help preserve nature’s beautiful locations.

The Seven Principles in Detail

To further understanding of the Nature First Principles, be sure to visit the Nature First principles page and scroll down as they explain each one. In the near future I will be creating a supplemental  document that helps further explain these principles as they apply to Texas environments and wildlife subjects around the world. The document will give examples and discuss how many of these principles are intertwined with each other. Be sure to check back for the publication of that document early 2022 here in this spot.


Get Involved!

Feel like you understand and are willing to help support these principles through your own actions and educating others? Take the pledge and become part of a global community of photographers with a similar culture of caring for the Nature we all love. Bonus: its free!
