Mile High Wildlife Photo Club's
Guide To Ethical Wildlife Photography

The first essential element in wildlife photography is a sincere respect for wildlife and its environment. In any conflict of interest, the well-being of wildlife and its habitat must come before the ambitions of the photographer. Here are some basic guidelines.

Avoid causing unnecessary disturbance or stress to wildlife.

Nesting and denning animals are particularly vulnerable, and need special consideration.

Luring wildlife closer for photography is often possible but should be done in a responsible way.

Show respect for private and public property, and consideration for other people.
