SUSTAINABILITY & WHITE ROOM STUDIO
We believe that every small action can create a ripple of positive change in our community. As Singapore’s leading photography studio, our commitment and social responsibility runs deep to also lead in environmental stewardship and fight climate change. The beauty captured through our lenses is intricately tied to the health of our planet and our community.
Breathtaking landscapes, diverse ecosystems, and vibrant communities that inspire our work are all at risk from the pressing challenges of climate change. White Room Studio chooses to be part of the solution because we understand that protecting our environment and people is not just an obligation or corporate responsibility, but an opportunity to shape a better future.
By aligning our values with socially sustainable practices, educating our clients and peers, and making conscious choices, we can contribute to a greener, more resilient world.
3,000 TREES PLANTED & COUNTING
Our goal is to maximise tree planting efforts and reduce carbon emissions as much as possible. To achieve this, we have partnered with One Tree Planted, an environmental sustainability non-profit charity that plants trees in countries around the world.
Trees are essential for the health of our planet and play a crucial role in addressing the climate crisis. By supporting this CSR initiative, we are contributing to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, specifically in areas related to climate action and biodiversity conservation.
Through our partnership with One Tree Planted, we pledge to plant 3 trees for every photoshoot you book with us. Join us on a heartfelt mission to create a positive impact. Your choice to book a photoshoot not only allows us to create cherished memories but also enables us to create a lasting legacy for our planet.
EMPOWERING FUTURE GENERATIONS
In an extraordinary journey spanning 9 days, along with 120 ambassadors from over 20 countries, our founder Elaine Lim and her daughter Hillary O’Sullivan embarked into the vast expanse of Antarctica on a climate expedition organised by Ocean Geographic Society Singapore.
Amidst breathtaking landscapes, they witnessed firsthand the urgent need to address climate change. Elaine and Hillary returned with a profound mission: to empower future generations to take decisive action.
Through the power of music and photography, they believe that by inspiring individuals, fostering awareness, and driving sustainable initiatives, we can forge a brighter future for our planet.
As Antarctic Climate ambassadors, Elaine and Hillary shared their experiences on the voyage to the Antarctic, as well as their contributions in formulating the 8 Climate Resolutions through ACE, on World Oceans Day 2023 at Singapore Sustainability Academy. They are also contributing photographers to City Developments’ Melting Ice, Sinking Cities Exhibition, and their thought-provoking photographs premiered at Singapore Botanic Gardens in June 2023.
Join us in this transformative movement by watching a captivating video summarising their reflection on the expedition and taking up the call to action that resonates within us all.
CHANGE BEGINS WITH US
Our commitment to sustainability is evident in every aspect of our operations. From offering reusable paper bags to sourcing FSC-certified wood for frames and canvases, we prioritise sustainable product creation. Our dedicated team continues to set an example by adopting eco-conscious and eco-friendly practices, incorporating reusable tumblers and lunchboxes into their daily lives.
It is also important for us to educate our clients on why we have phased out single-use items in our pantry, starting with opting for snacks and drinks with less or no plastic packaging. These steps will ultimately make a significant difference, so let’s create a world where every action, no matter how small, contributes to a greener and more sustainable future.
Our beneficiaries hold a special place in our hearts. We are proud to partner with esteemed charities that share our passion for creating a brighter future through CSR efforts and initiatives. These partnerships allow us to pool our resources, expertise, and compassion, extending our reach and maximise the positive influence we have on the lives of individuals and families in need.
Together, all of us work tirelessly as we share a vision, leaving no stone unturned in our pursuit of a better and more compassionate world. The synergy between our community, our beneficiaries, and the charities we partner with is a source of inspiration, and we remain deeply committed to making a difference in the lives of those we touch.

A PORTRAIT OF A THOUSAND WORDS
“Among the many lives we’ve touched, there’s one story that particularly resonates – a graduation photoshoot we sponsored through FaithActs to fulfil a mother’s last wish: to have graduation photos taken with her only daughter. It was a moment forever etched in our hearts. Witnessing the light in the graduate’s eyes and the warmth of her mum’s smile as their wish came true was a powerful reminder of the profound impact we can have when we come together to spread hope and love.” — Elaine, Founder of White Room Studio
Thank you for the album. It is really beautiful and my mom was very happy selecting the photos. She enjoyed the entire photoshoot process, and was also extremely happy to have her dream of seeing me in a graduation gown fulfilled. She is a very blessed and strong willed woman. She told me that she is very grateful for you and everyone at White Room Studio.”
