Responsible tourism: Advanced DSLR London photography course, England
We maintain a home office to minimise pollution from commuting and heating. We also have a comprehensive recycling policy and use energy efficient devices and practices to minimise our effect on the environment. All papers, plastic and electronic devices which can be recycled locally are recycled through our local council. We have a policy to minimise printing – especially for colour printing of photographs which uses a considerable amount of harmful inks.
We favour low voltage light sources and actively switch these off when not in use. We also use individual switching to allow computer and other peripherals to be disconnected when not in use. All of our tour information and trip notes are supplied digitally, and we don't have a paper brochure. As a comprehensive adopter of digital photography we have drastically cut the pollution associated with film manufacture, processing and printing.
If any transport is required on our courses, we always opt for public transport to avoid necessary pollution
Steve, the professional travel photographer who will be accompanying the trip, is very passionate about the idea that photographers should travel sensitively and should have a positive effect on the places that they travel in. Passengers on this trip are encouraged to always act with respect for people, places, religions and cultures that they wish to photograph and especially to never 'steal' pictures. They are actively instructed in ways that they can interact with people - and seek permission for photographs, which results in much more sympathetic picture, and a much better experience for all concerned.
We try to convey this message as a positive way pf photographing in the hope that people will travel and photograph in a better, more sensitive way on their future travels, as well as on this course.
As a short London course, we don't have that many options for supporting businesses in London, but we do meet in a cafe, and usually end up in a local pub to review the pictures. This gives some benefit to local businesses.
