Kirsty Larmour Photography – Eco Statement

As a former Environmental Consultant it’s important to me that I make efforts to minimise the environmental impact of my business. I endeavor to undertake the following steps:

  • Run a paperless company as far as possible
  • All business printed materials will be on recycled or post-consumer waste card stock
  • All client printed materials will be on recycled card by default, changeable to another card type by request only
  • All packaging materials will be recycled
  • Bulk buying and bulk shipping will be undertaken whenever possible
  • All client information should be available electronically, including contracts, pricelists and product information
  • All shipping materials should be recycled where possible – this includes charity donations, neighbourhood recycling and donation to schools/playgroups
  • Pre shoot consultations should take place over the phone wherever possible to avoid unnecessary travel
  • Client deliveries should be grouped together, especially when off island, to avoid multiple road journeys
  • Company newsletters will be sent electronically
  • All cameras/batteries etc should be recharagble
  • Other equipment, eg computers, scanners etc should be repaired and used for as long as possible
  • Reduce consumption of products, reuse where possible and recycle as a last resort
  • Keep researching to find sustainable sources for products, and more eco-friendly options. Endeavour to offer a recycled album and prints on eco-friendly paper in the future
  • Keep researching local printing options that can replace the products I source from overseas

They’re small steps and I’m far from perfect but I hope these baby steps will help to offset the things that I can’t control, like the fact most of my products need to be flown in from overseas, and the need to use a car to get to the majority of my photo locations.

I'm Kirsty Hello There!


Hi, I'm Kirsty, a lifestyle photographer and photography educator who lives in India. My approach to photography is to capture real life – with a little sparkle on top fueled by my obsession with pretty light. I want to treasure the moments that need to be remembered.

Grab a cup of tea and have a roam around my blog to see my photography style and ideas. (Check out the Details section up there on the menu bar, and the FAQ's for lots of info too). I post pictures on here from recent photo sessions, as well as some personal photo projects and some ramblings about life in general. Leave some love, check my page out over on Facebook to stay up to date, and come back again soon,

Kirsty xx
