Code of Ethics

As a Photographer, I adhere to the following Code of Ethics:

I will be accurate and comprehensive in the representation of subjects.

I will resist being manipulated by staged photo opportunities.

I will respect the integrity of the photographic moment.

I will be complete and provide context when photographing or recording subjects.

I will avoid stereotyping individuals and groups.

I will treat all subjects with respect and dignity.

I will be unobtrusive and humble in dealing with subjects.

I will give special consideration to vulnerable subjects and compassion to victims of crime or tragedy.

I will intrude on private moments of grief only when the public has an overriding and justifiable need to see it.

I will not pay sources or subjects or reward them materially for information or participation.

I will not accept gifts, favors, or compensation from those who might seek to influence coverage.

I will vigorously defend the rights of access for all photographers and journalists.

I will avoid political, civic and business involvements or other employment that compromise or give the appearance of compromising my own independence.

While editing images, I will maintain the integrity of the photographic images’ content and context. I will not manipulate images in any way that can mislead viewers or misrepresent subjects.

I will strive by example and influence to maintain the spirit and high standards expressed in this code.

When confronted with situations in which the proper action is not clear, I will seek the counsel of those who exhibit the highest standards of the profession.

I will continuously study the Photography craft and adhere to the ethics that guide and protect it.


Based on the Code of Ethics by the NPPA.

    Hello. I see that you don’t update your site too often. I know that
    writing content is boring and time consuming. But did you know that there is a
    tool that allows you to create new articles using existing content (from
    article directories or other blogs from your niche)?
    And it does it very well. The new posts are high quality and pass the copyscape test.
    You should try miftolo’s tools
