KarunaPhoto and the Sustainable Practices I use or offer:
I use both restored and salvaged props. In my office, I use Trello.com for my to-do lists as well as Google docs and email help cut down paper use.
Rechargeable batteries are used with all my equipment.
I also have compact fluorescent energy-saving light bulbs throughout my space.
Email correspondence and Skype/Zoom meetings cut down on carbon footprint.
They also offer a socially distanced and safer meeting option in these times.
In-person locations and meetings can be located close to tart trails or BATA routes so that mass transit or bikes/feet can be used. As well as outdoor socially distanced conversations.
Recycled ink cartridges are from a local supplier.
Temporary props are usually offered to the client or donated.
Albums use scrap cellulose and are eco-friendly both in ink and paper content.
Giving back is very important for KarunaPhoto.
50% of all Albums production cost goes to www.beautifultogether.org
I offer free Senior Photo sessions for students through the local STEP program
I also volunteer free photography to the Alzheimer’s Foundation.
I offer my services at a reduced price to my alma mater’s NMC and GVSU.
