Contract Photographic Work
Contracted Photo Shoots
Do you need someone to shoot professional photos for you? I am available and can perform this service. I have state-of-the-art, digital photographic equipment and can “polish up” photographs using Photoshop, a software program that I have been trained in. I can shoot most any subjects. Depending upon the project, we can arrange for payment by the hour or by the project. If you have a need, please contact me, using this convenient link: email@example.com

Please Note: As a member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA), I subscribe to and follow the code of ethics that NANPA has long supported and recommended. If you wish me to become involved, either as a photographer or as a bystander to inappropriate behavior, please save yourself and me some time by finding someone else. Some of the highlights of this code of ethics include:
- Learn patterns of behavior of wildlife, so that you will not interfere with their behavior or frighten or cause injury or death to animals.
- Do not distress animals or their environment.
- Use appropriate lenses to photograph animals. If they show signs of stress, or a modification of their normal behavior, back off and use longer lenses.
- Learn the rules and laws of the photographic location, and follow them at all times.
- If in doubt, use good judgment!
- Treat others courteously. If you witness others engaging in inappropriate or harmful behavior, let them know in a courteous manner and explain why this behavior is not appropriate. If the behavior continues, don’t argue with them. Instead, inform the proper authorities so that they may handle the situation.
- Be a good role model, both as a citizen and as a nature photographer.
- Do not trespass on private land. Always get permission before venturing on private lands.
The bottom line is that we should not do anything that causes an animal to modify their behavior, become frightened, or that could cause injury or death to them. This is important all the time, but particularly so during times of high stress to the animal, including, but not limited to: nesting activities, raising/feeding young, during the annual spring/fall migrations (when inappropriate behavior can have a profound and detrimental effect on the animals). If in doubt, err on the side of being “overly-protective”.
