When I started photography I thought it would be very easy to take pictures of animals, plants and landscapes. I had seen many impressive photos and had no idea how much time the photographers had spent waiting and how much luck was necessary in addition of the complex know-how.
I understood that before stepping into nature to capture moments of it with a camera lens, I needed to be sure about my personal morals and guidelines.
Therefore, I am constantly doing my very best to sticking to the following rules of respect for our natural environment.
"The first essential element in bird photography is a sincere respect for the birds and their environment. In any conflict of interest, the well-being of the birds and their habitats must come before the ambitions of the photographer. Here are some basic guidelines.
Avoid causing unnecessary disturbance or stress to birds.
Nesting birds are particularly vulnerable, and need special consideration
Luring birds 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.
