A “Green Photographer” can be defined as one who uses renewable resources (environmentally sustainable) and implements environmentaaly friendly practices such as reducing, reusing, and recycling. They likely only shoot digital photographs, thereby eliminating the need for film and the harmful chemicals used to develop film. It can also mean that they don’t offer printed proofs in a proofbook. Instead, the photographers would give you digital images to look at, so you can print just the ones you actually want printed, thereby eliminating the use of extra paper and chemicals.

Mayan Photography takes pride in offering eco-friendly albums from White Glove books. They are:

  • Non-toxic, non-hazardous, acid-free and use biodegradable glue
  • FSC certified, recycled, acid, lignin and chlorine free cover board
  • Solvent-free, aqueous pigment inks printed on PEFC certified paper
  • Acid-free book cloth is a cotton-linen mix produced from natural fibres which are sustainably harvested
  • Made of all natural papers from sustainably peeled Mulberry bark. It is lignon-free, recyclable, PH neutral and made with all natural dyes
  • Bonded leather is made from tannery leather fibres, which otherwise would go to a landfill

Some other ways we are "green":

  • We shoot and deliver 100% digitally, and provide all proofs online in a secure gallery. (No burning on DVD's or USB sticks)
  • We use a print company for paper prints and canvases that is a certified green company and uses the most economically friendly practices available to print labs.
  • Online print orders are shipped directly to you, so no extra shipping is used to get the prints to us first for personal delivery.
  • We work with a lab in the UK for our European customers to order prints closer to home.
  • We use only rechargeable AA batteries in our gear, not disposable
  • All our price lists and company brochures are digital, not paper printed
  • We refill our ink catridges rather than get new ones each time
