How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...
We stay in friendly, family-run venues who employ local staff and use fair employment practices. Our food and drink is sourced from local suppliers.
We maintain a small office which minimises use of electricity and gas. We are web-based and all correspondence is sent to clients electronically. The small amount of paper we use in the office is recycled and we rely on natural light for most of the day.
On our photography holidays we divide into smaller groups when visiting locations to minimise our impact and increase the potential for meaningful interactions. We also ask permission from people first before taking photographs. We use local guides who assist in communicating with local people where there is a language barrier, and we try to use their language wherever possible.
