Green Lens Vision
At Green Lens Studio, we believe that photography can be ethical, functional and beautiful. Our mission is to connect creative practice with environmental sustainability and social justice.
In 2009 we set out to design a multi-functional photographic space where aesthetics, environmental and social responsibility could be combined. We found our home in a wonderfully restored stable warehouse in North London.
Green Lens loves our planet
We’re the UK’s first environmentally sustainable photography studio, with earth-friendly operating principles and mindful manufacturing that have earned us Ecovate certification and nomination for Eco Micro Business of the year. See our environmental policy below.
We collaborate with many organisations that prioritise reducing their environmental impact by taking an active role in protecting and cleaning up the environment.
Together, we’re conscious of our footprint in the world and want to leave a trail of sweet-smelling flowers behind us – not destruction! We also plant trees to offset any unavoidable footprint.
Green Lens cares about community
The Green Lens ethos extends to our involvement with local community and social justice organisations. We actively support and promote innovative approaches to environmental and community care by engaging and connecting with those around us and opening our doors to groups who further this part of our mission.
Our studio is full of character, warmth and charm and we love to use it to run a variety of eco workshops and exhibitions so that many voices can be added to the sustainability conversation.
Keep track of our blog where we bring you eco news from across the globe, research and share information about our community workshops and happenings, to inspire more mindful approaches to our lives and the planet.
Green Lens Studio- Business as a Community Interest Company
In order to fulfill our mission and aims we shoot and offer space for hire for all aspects of commercial photography. This includes fashion, beauty, and product photography with daylight and blackout options in our charming historical setting.
We also shoot on location and there are plenty interesting options around for example lush nature sites of Parkland Walk and Queens Wood, as well as local industrial looks of warehouses district nearby...
In order to do the eco-community work we thrive doing we make the studio financially sustainable by balancing its use between being a photographic studio, project space, art gallery and event venue. We are available for private hire with the use of camera and lighting equipment, backdrops and props as well as with a comprehensive range of photographic services.
