We all know that to carry out commercial photography or filming, a permission or permit is required for anywhere that is not your own private garden!
The location is a critical part of every image for several reasons:
We can investigate shooting ‘closer to home’ whether that is Spain rather than South Africa or the South Coast of the UK rather than abroad.
When researching a studio, we can ask if it uses power and heating from 100% sustainable sources and attempt to book one close to the majority of crew.
We can rationalise transport including ride share where possible.
There are stylists, rubbish removal as well as lighting and production companies who are working hard to reduce the impact of the shoots, they are involved in. I have even met a sound recordist who travels to London shoots by bicycle!
Here are a couple of other amazing facts that highlight simple small steps that we can all take to reduce the footprint of our projects, even eating one delicious vegan meal in a week can have a large impact and we will probably feel healthier for it!
