Good afternoon and welcome to The British Deer Society

Deer Photography Code of Conduct

One of the delights of working at BDS is seeing stunning and often breathtaking pictures of British deer.

Digital photography has made it much easier for all of us to get involved in photography at some level and our BDS social media feeds are regularly full to the brim of deer photos and video.
However, photographing deer can be both a rewarding and frustrating experience in equal measure and the inexperienced may unknowingly put themselves and their subject at risk.

It was with this in mind that BDS produced its Photography Code of Conduct to provide a simple easy to use guide for anyone photographing deer.

Deer Photography Code of Conduct

The code is broken down into three main sections:

  • Environmental: Knowledge of Subject and Place
  • Social: Knowledge of Rules and Laws
  • Individual: Expertise and Responsibilities

Following the code will help protect yourself, your subject and the environment.
