My name is Richard Ella
I'm a self taught Scottish photographer now living in rural Perthshire.
I previously spent many years doing youth sports photography and have only recently started to approach Nature and Landscape photography more seriously.
I've started to learn to really look into the landscape and appreciate the small details, the beauty of light and the moments that can reveal themselves in an instant and disappear as quickly as they appeared. In beginning my landscape photography journey it is giving me a new found love for nature and the Scottish landscape and has unfortunately has made me realise the detrimental impact that social media photography is having on the natural world. Therefore I am proud to state that I have become a member of Nature First, the Alliance for Responsible Photography.
Please follow me on my journey as I develop my passion for Scotland, nature, landscape and the outdoors and hopefully you may find some inspiration to pursue a similar passion.
Putting Nature First
I am proud to be a member of Nature First - The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography.The main principles of the code are:-
Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.
Educate yourself about the places you photograph.
Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.
Use discretion if sharing locations.
Know and follow rules and regulations.
Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.
Actively promote and educate others about these principles.
‘Take nothing but photographs.
Leave nothing but footprints.’
