I’m a climate-aware photographer

I’ve recently been certified as a climate aware photographer, after completing carbon literacy training with Redeye.

The course was accredited by the Carbon Literacy Trust.

I’ve been increasingly conscious of my environmental impact as a photographer over recent years so it was good to get some scientific and theoretical underpinning of this issue and to develop some ideas about ways to reduce my carbon footprint.

One tangible thing I have already done is invest in some basic second-hand film cameras to use with groups instead of disposable cameras. Transport choices were already on my radar. I need to investigate ways to bring more sustainable practices into my projects – experiment with anthrotypes for example.

Many thanks to Redeye Photo Network for this opportunity – it is the start of my thinking about this, not the end point.
