Tips for safer photography sessions

posted on 13th of december, 2012

I just read a recent article about a woman who was killed by a train while photographing another train coming from the opposite direction. It is a tragic situation that could have been avoided, but this woman is certainly not the first photographer to put herself into a risky situation for a photo. It is likely that many of us take on risks for this craft. The two questions are: 1) Do we even realize that we are in a risky situation? 2) What do we do to reduce the risk?

I invite all of you to share your ideas on how to make our photography sessions safer for ourselves and clients. I'll begin with a few ideas.

I always cringe around the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone when I visit there. Actually I avoid it now. Too many morons going over the barriers to take I guess what they think is the ultimate photo - looking straight down the cliffs. Or going up to a bison with their little point and shoot. When we lived next to Acadia Nat. Park in Maine each season a touron would be swept out to sea.
