Sustainable Practices & Giving Back

KarunaPhoto and the Sustainable Practices I use or offer:

I use both restored and salvaged props. In my office, I use 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

Giving back is very important for KarunaPhoto.

50% of  all Albums production cost goes to

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.

And finally, other ways I give back financially are through KIVA, ICT, ACLU, RED CROSS, and  DONORS CHOOSE.
