Guidelines for underwater photographers

SDFSA has developed guidelines for underwater photographers to encourage minimal impact on our marine life and environment.  Whether you are taking photos simply to help you identify the local critters, or you are contributing to citizen science efforts to document species, or you want to recreate for your friends the beauty of the underwater world, these guidelines are for you.
The Guidelines cover 11 good practices, with photos to illustrate.
In particular, we recommend that you read the Code of Conduct for Diving with Dragons
