I strongly believe in individual responsibility and try hard to incorporate this belief into every facet of my life. One of the things I am personally very passionate about is our planet.
Everything we do as humans impacts the world around us, for better or for worse, and our choices as individuals decide what kind of world we are to live in.
As with any industry, networking is key, and as a freelance photographer I hand out a LOT of business cards. The paper for my business cards comes from an Australian source who provides pre-cut eco-friendly recycled cardboard. The well-crafted stamps I use were also made here in Australia by Penrith Rubber Stamps, with wooden mounts crafted from Western Australian Jarrah. Penrith Rubber Stamps also offers "eco-friendly" rubber upon request to reflect their belief that "we all need to do our bit", a value I respect and connect with on a personal level.
Each of my business cards are hand-stamped by myself in order to bring all of these elements together and to demonstrate that I take pride in incorporating soul into everything that I produce.
