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 to 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 to me.
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.
