Rules of engagement when shooting with fellow photographers

The Tri-City Photography Club’s mission is to inspire and empower creativity of all levels. We strive to teach and encourage others in their photographic endeavors. Each member should be willing to educate/instruct/help fellow photographers whenever they can; sharing their knowledge about photography. The club does not tolerate rudeness on photo shoots, on Facebook or at meetings. Members are expected to be a positive influence. We can all learn from each other and be supportive!

Some Simple Rules of Photography Etiquette:
1. Be respectful at all times (this really says it all!!)
2. Don’t set up, stand or otherwise block your fellow photographer
3. Be aware of your surroundings at all times
4. Don’t interfere with wildlife habit
5. Stay a safe distance from wildlife (not only for your safety but their safety too!)
6. Stay on the trail provided
7. Be aware of any signs that are posted
8. Be willing to help fellow photographers
9. If you have to take turns in a “perfect” spot…be nice and don’t monopolize time at the spot
10. Not everyone wants their picture taken…ask permission first
11. Ask permission before sharing pictures of another person (they may not want to be on Facebook)
12. Not every land owner wants their property photographed…ask permission first
13. Ask permission before entering private property
