My name is Alexander Eatough. I am a postgraduate conservationist, marine and natural history photographer seeking to address current climate and environmental issues.contact me
Through practiced wildlife and landscape photography, I hope to provoke thoughts towards modern-day consumerism and what we stand to lose. Conservation has played a key role in my academic development. I was fortunate enough to be raised with an awareness for nature and a strong desire to preserve it.
I use my imagery extensively to provoke topical conversations, with a view to further understanding community-based fears and their driving factors. Connecting with individuals through a common interest and a desire for sustainability is, by far, the most important aspect of my work.
As a keen environmentalist I am duty-bound to abide by the Nature Photographers’ ‘Code of Practice’.
The code of practice, produced by the Royal Photographic Societies Nature Group, outlines the key considerations required for nature photographers to adopt an ethical approach to their profession. There is one particular rule the Royal Photographic Society insists nature photographers must always maintain, that being: “The welfare of the subject is more important than the photograph.” I apply this in all contexts when conducting photographic shoots.
