ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

For us, any commercial activity which benefits from natural environments must pay back the profits obtained through the direct or indirect use of nature’s resources. We are seeking for this objective through the following practices:

IMAGE BANK

Granting free image usage rights for non-profit socio-environmental organizations, scientific research done in public institutions, artistic projects with socio-environmental purposes and others.

LECTURES, EXHIBITIONS AND COURSES

Presenting free photo exhibitions, lectures and courses during events targeted at fomenting environmental awareness through ecotourism, wildlife watching, nature photography and other activities that may bring socio-environmental benefits.

PHOTOGRAPHIC ACCESSORIES

Development of alternative photographic accessories by means of reusing waste materials and parts, thus diminishing costs and stimulating the art of photography.

INFORMATION ACCURACY

Careful checking of the information generated by the images that we produce, a journalistic practice that we consider crucial as an educational tool for the natural sciences.

DAILY ROUTINES

Adoption of low impact practices on our daily office routines, such as: acquiring equipment with better electrical efficiency; proper sorting and destination of waste; use of reusable or recycled office supplies; priority to collective transportation during work trips; reduction of car trips by choosing to have our home and business office in the same place; preference for sending files and documents by internet rather than using printed matter or sending packages by shipping companies.

ALWAYS CLOSE ENOUGH…
BUT NEVER TOO CLOSE!

Another cornerstone of our attitude towards natural environments is the concern of never causing excessive disturbance at a given location in search for a nice picture. The boundary between obtaining a rare image and

respecting the subject must be very clear throughout our everyday life in contact with nature. The animals, plants, people and landscapes pictured in this website were not manipulated or harmed by any means in order to

obtain the images. Likewise, none of the photographs were digitally manipulated – changes were limited to basic color, contrast, saturation and sharpness corrections done by image editing software.
