Welcome, and thank you for visiting Cutts Nature Photography. My name is David Cutts, and I was born and raised in the great state of Texas. As a child, my father taught me the importance of being conscientious of the wildlife and nature that surround us. I quickly grew to have a deep appreciation for the outdoors and all of its inhabitants. This love for all things outdoors fuels my passion as a nature and wildlife photographer and, more recently, a backyard birder.
Years ago, I began to zoom in on my backyard bird photography. I learned everything I could about attracting new species of birds to my backyard. As a result, my backyard slowly turned into a thriving intercity bird sanctuary. I have dedicated this website to educating others on how to attract birds to their backyard and how to transform it, or any other piece of real estate, into a flourishing refuge for your feathered friends.
Like you, wildlife and nature are important aspects of my life. As conservation-minded nature and wildlife lovers, I believe it is our responsibility to help conserve the places we love to visit and photograph through education, outreach, community, and research. Therefore, I’m a proud member of Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography, and I’m dedicated to following the Nature First Principles:
Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.
Educate ourselves about the places we photograph.
Reflect on the possible impact of our actions.
Use discretion if sharing locations.
Know and follow the rules and regulations.
Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than we found them.
Actively promote and educate others about these principles.
Some of our Earth's greatest landscapes and natural areas are threatened by increased visitation and a general lack of care. Let's make sure we do our part to protect it.
