The importance of storytelling and photographic ethics

Wildlife storytelling requires striking an imperfect balance when attempting to document unique animal behaviour that can inspire the world to better appreciate and understand nature. In the field we always attempt to embody best practices, but acknowledge that unintentional mistakes can be made and, as such, we pledge to constantly demand better of ourselves and learn with every opportunity presented. That said, each image we’ve captured depicts wild animals in wild settings and you can always know that we’ll never use techniques that will harm our subjects, even if it means a lesser story.
