One of my all-time favourite portrait shoots that I’ve done is a lifestyle-themed product photoshoot for Mother Erth, an ethical fashion line based in LA and Toronto.
Mother Erth repurposes plastic waste from developing countries into beautiful bags and accessories, keeping waste out of the landfill while simultaneously providing artisan mothers in developing countries around the world with fair, sustainable income. The waste that Mother Erth uses comes from food packaging waste, and the amount of waste that is produced each year is enough to cover the entire surface of Earth!
“By empowering low income mothers to be self sustaining and consumers to become eco-conscious we break the poverty cycle and create a grassroots movement to eliminate plastic waste.”
Below are some of my favourite shots from the shoot:
