Just a couple humble thoughts here, and a “no workshop” pledge for your consdideration.
To me, every square inch of a National Park is a fragile wilderness area and deserves the utmost respect and preservation.
Now and then I encounter photography workshops in the National Parks, where groups of people are lead over and through fragile wilderness areas.
I was wondering if any workshop leaders might be willing to cut back on promoting workshops with geotagged locations and leading workshops and groups of people into fragile wilderness areas?
And too, as the workshops are often advertised with photographs of the fragile wilderness locations, the workshops constitute a double whammy, as not only are fragile wilderness locations geotagged and shared to tens of thousands via the workshop’s social media and websites of its leaders, but then dozens of photographers in the workshops are lead to those locations, who in turn will tag their photos with the locations.
So it is that it seems a “no workshop pledge” would serve the spirit of this site and the “Nature First” movement.
Thank you for your consideration and have a great day! I look forward to hearing everyone’s opinions!
