Green Lens is about connectivity

Our mission is to connect creative practice with environmental sustainability. To us, photography can be ethical, functional and beautiful, and in 2009 we set the stage to make that our everyday.

Green Lens is about sustainability

We’re the UK’s first environmentally sustainable photography studio. Our earth-friendly operating principles and mindful manufacturing has earned us an Ecovate certification and a cheeky nomination for Eco Micro Business of the Year. 

Collaborating with those that take an active role in protecting and cleaning up the environment is important to us. We’re constantly looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint; it’s this passion that takes us on rewilding, tree planting and sustainability projects across the UK, every year.  

Keep track of our blog where we bring you eco news from our world and yours, sustainability research and information on our community workshops and happenings.

Green Lens is about community

Our ethos extends beyond just environmentally sustainability, encapsulating the full spectrum of social justice. We’re lucky to be based near some truly innovative local community organisations; we love engaging and connecting with those around us and opening our doors to groups who share our vision.

Green Lens is about you

Photographic studio, project space, art gallery, event venue and more; whatever your rental needs, we can accommodate. We are available for private hire with camera, lighting, backdrops and props as well as with a comprehensive range of photographic services. All with daylight and blackout options in a charming, historical setting.

We love our space, but we’re no house cats. We shoot on location and have a selection of settings around us, from the serene sites of Parkland Walk and Queens Wood, to the industrial charm of the warehouse districts nearby.

Environmental Policy

Environmental Policy

We are the first sustainable photographic studio in the UK. We recognise that as a business we cannot be 100% eco-friendly, however, we can (and do) seek to minimise our impact on the environment, without interfering with the quality of our professional service.

• In the conversion of a disused 1880s stables into GLS, we used 70% reclaimed material

• The building has been thoroughly insulated and draft-proofed

• Energy & water saving devices are in use

We recycle as much as we can

• We use a renewable energy plan

• We promote eco-friendly methods of transport, including cycling to the locations and deliver equipment

• We use organic or fairtrade produce wherever possible

• To offset our carbon footprint we annually participate in a tree planting initiative

• We source most of our furniture and other studio items as upcycled or reused things so that we don’t contribute so much to the planned obsolescence (stuff breaking easily) as is a feature in the production of goods these days

•   We provide our broad clientele with highly energy efficientfacilities for photo shoots and art projects

•   We encourage creative sustainable practice beyond GLS by regularly organising exhibitions and workshops.

Environmental consultants – Ecovate – presented us with an ecocertificate and nominations for their 2010 “eco-micro business of the year” and “green service” awards (see certificate)

Ecotricity’s mission is to change the way energy is made and used in Britain. And they do this by taking the money their customers spend on their energy bills and using it to build new sources of Green Energy – from the Wind, the Sun and soon the Sea – they call this turning ‘bills into mills’.

Three BIG reasons to join Ecotricity…

1. It’s the greenest possible outcome. No other energy company will spend more of the money from your bills building new sources of green energy**. Together we’re helping to make an energy independent Britain – a Green Britain.

2. Ecotricity’s prices are simple and fair. They price match the standard tariff of each regional electricity supplier (and British Gas for gas), so for the average home it won’t cost a penny more to switch to us.

3. Ecotricity’s customer service is fabulous. Ecotricity’s ‘handmade’ customer service means we answer the phone quickly and resolve nine out of ten enquiries in the first phone call.

If you switch to Ecotricity, you’ll receive £60 Naked Wines voucher. Call us free on 08000 302 302 or visit When you sign up please quote: GLS1



Green Lens Studios is the first gallery that exclusively exhibits sustainable art. 


Green Lens Studios is the first gallery that exclusively exhibits sustainable art. 

Our mission is to connect creative practice with environmental sustainability and social justice. One way we do this is to provide a platform where artists who’ve realised their responsibility as communicators can show their work. It's proven successful as a rising number of artists are seriously taking this role on and find they need specialist spaces to cater. We aim to help this genre of artists, as we understand them to have as crucial a role as green journalists and politicians for communicating upcoming changes necessary for us to safely grow and develop upon earth.
