Photographer’s Etiquettes - You Should Know About


As social beings and specifically as photographers, we are not spared from human interactions. If photography is your hobby, then we deal directly with your subjects. Even if your interests are more towards landscapes, you will inevitably interact with the people on location to gain information or any assistance.

That is why etiquette is an important issue. Though this topic is seldom discussed. Photographers are usually more interested in discussing cameras, lenses, lightings, and other photography technique related subject.

The meaning of etiquette, at least my version of it, is the interactions between people, between photographer and model, between photographers and assistants, and interactions with the locals. By having good ethical skills, the photographer is benefitted by getting more meaningful photographs, more pleasant to view, and natural. People around you will also be happier to give you any assistance.

Generally, having good etiquette means being humble, respectful towards others, enthusiastic, and kind. In photographing portraits, for instance, especially if the models are women, you can respect them by not touching them when directing poses. Touching the models can be considered rude, especially in Asia, and can make the model become uncomfortable. Also, avoid speaking in a commanding voice and praise or thank your models frequently when it is due.
