10 Tips for Great Field Photos

Helping hunters honor special animals and special adventures—and inspiring the special conservation efforts needed to produce more of both—is the goal of a Boone and Crockett partnership with Swarovski. The renowned optics company is a three-year sponsor behind a Field Photo Contest and field photo tips section in each issue of the Club’s magazine, Fair Chase.

With a file of more than 42,000 big-game trophies dating back to 1830, perhaps no organization sees more field photos, from wow to meh, than Boone and Crockett Club.

Boone and Crockett President Bill Demmer said, “Trophy data is vital for conservation because it gauges species, population and habitat health. Outstanding field photos are a perfect opportunity for hunters to share this fact and demonstrate respect for the wildlife we hunt.”

Dean Capuano, Director of Communications for Swarovski, added, “Our company is proud to contribute to conservation by providing tools sportsmen need to locate and objectively evaluate game in the field. And we’re proud to partner with the Boone and Crockett Club to build the photography skills needed to preserve memories to last a lifetime.”
