About Scott Bacon


I’m an explorer who cherishes the quiet solitude of wilderness.

I strive to create images that convey the wonder and beauty of nature.

My smile is genuine, and my mind is open and curious.

I love my wife and children like nothing else.

My life is enriched by sharing my vision, and learning from others.

I truly hope you enjoy my images.

That’s why I put them here…

My Commitment to Responsible Nature Photography

I’m a founding member of Nature First, the Alliance of Responsible Nature Photographers. We created Nature First and the Principles because we have seen first-hand the negative impact made by photographers and visitors in the natural places we cherish and love to photograph. I’m dedicated to exemplifying and educating others about the Nature First Principles:

  1. Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.

  2. Educate yourself about the places you photograph.

  3. Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.

  4. Use discretion if sharing locations.

  5. Know and follow rules and regulations.

  6. Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.

  7. Actively promote and educate others about these principles
