Like many Americans I’m concerned about the current state of environmental issues and am always on the lookout for ways that I can make small changes both personally and with my business to help make positive changes. Living in and doing business as a wedding photographer in Colorado the beauty of our environment is something I value greatly. So to move in the right direction I sold my gas guzzling 4×4 for a little station wagon that gets over double the mileage and now I’m introducing the Green Package.
So what does the “Green Package” entail?
Well for starters it includes many of the basics from all my coverage options.
- Complimentary engagement session
- Full Day coverage by myself and an associate photographer
- 50-100 photos per coverage hour
- Disc with all images sized for printing and a personal use print release
For proofs on this package I’ll be using the iPad option. No boxes of 4×6 proofs and all the paper and chemicals associated with that.
A few other things of note about the iPad is that it embodies Apple’s latest environmental progress in production. It is designed with many features to reduce environmental impact:
- Arsenic-free display glass
- Mercury-free LCD display
- Recyclable aluminum and glass enclosure
The “Green Collection” also comes with an album. A 100 page “Iceland” book from Couture books Earth Collection.
The earth collection is printed on 100% post-consumer recycled acid-free archival paper and utilizes environmentally sensitive materials. The entire printing process is powered by green-e certified windpower. Carbon offsets and trees are planted with a portion of the proceeds of each book by the printer.
The “Iceland” features
- A full bleed printed cover with image(s) from your wedding
- 100% recycled paper.
For the 2010 season total cost of the Green Package will start at $4500.
Until next time,
