Eco Friendly Studio
We don't just say it, we live it. Artistic photography is not just a passion or a business to us, it's a lifestyle. Part of that lifestyle is respect for the earth and its inhabitants and a deep knowledge of the impact photograhy as had, and will continue to have on the earth. By drastically reducing the impact our business has on the environment, we are doing our small part to preserve the earth's resources and natural beauty for future generations.
- Solar powered - We generate 100% of the electricity needed for the studio and our personal use. Infact every year we generate a net surplus of electricity.
- Archival in-house printing - With very few exceptions we print most of our work on recyclable, archival, fine art paper. Most papers produced for photographic printing by a lab have a resin coating, they are not recycleable.
- Frames - Our frames are sourced from manufacturers that use wood harvested from sustainable forests. Mats are also acid-free, archival and sustainably sourced.
- Electric vehicle - Our all-electic, no emission vehicle is charged from our solar panels.
- Reuse or Recycle - If it comes into our home or studio we make every effort to reuse or recycle it. That even includes vegetable scraps from our kitchen that are composted and used in our organic garden.
Why Blue Moon Photography?
We are often asked why we chose the name Blue Moon Photography for our studio. Well, it’s because it evokes the idea of life's rare moments - something that comes along only once in a blue moon. It takes an artist's eye to recognize when one of those moments is unfolding... and to record those fleeting moments in an artistic way. That's what we hope to do for each client - document genuine moments of beauty and emotion.
We are passionate about our art, our work, and our relationship. Together, we bring our unique and outstanding talents to each and and every job we do. Our clients really benefit the way we blend and share our talents with each other. They are actually commissioning two artists. It is not very often you find two people, both photographers and digital artists, that work in harmony. Each image is truly a collaborative work.
