I just published the latest issue of my newsletter 6FPS. Please take a look at Yosemite, Putting Nature First (and more). Not subscribed yet? Here’s what you missed:

  • The original essay this issue is called Putting Nature First, in which I talk about the challenges facing the places we love from over-use and abuse, and how some photography practices encourage or cause these problems. A group has formed to try to educate photographers about these problems, the Nature First Alliance, and I have enthusiastically signed their pledge to follow their guidelines for responsible photography, and I want to encourage you to do so as well.
  • I also talk some more about the photos I took in my recent Yosemite trip, as well as link to some interesting pieces by Om, Dan Bailey, Richard Wong, Ben Horne and more.
  • Oh and I almost forgot (not really): A surprise gift!: I’ve added a surprise gift for subscribers to this issue, but you’ll have to read it (and subscribe, if you haven’t!) to find out what it is…

You can always read back issues of the newsletter in the archives, but I won’t be posting notices about them regularly once the newsletter is more established. Subscribing is free and easy, so I want to suggest you please subscribe so you don’t miss out.

So subscribe already!
