about ustwo hearts, one story.
We are partners in life who are fortunate enough to share a passion for photography, which has enabled us to become partners in work as well.
We're nature-lovers, people lovers and we also really love each other! Our varied styles and personalities create a perfect synergy: bringing to our shoots both the feminine and the masculine, the emotion and the technique; the close-up and the far away.
Alan:I've has been a photographer since I was about 10 with a Brownie Box camera and a dark-room in my bedroom. I've had a wide range of careers but finally found my passion in photography. I have two loves (besides Perri of course): my telephoto lens that allows me to photograph discreetly from a distance and my macro lens that gets me up real close to all the minute details of life! I also love my dogs, connecting with animals and being part of our amazing community up here.
As you might guess, I'm the more technical side of the partnership. You can talk to me for hours about camera gear and computers (but I'll try not to bring it up unless you do!)
Perri:I've dabbled in photography since high school and studied Fine Arts and Ceramics at college. Then life took me on a more spiritual journey that included living in Japan and Malaysia and falling in love with the cultures there. Once I met Alan, I settled down a bit and now live close to nature on our 42-acre piece of paradise in Uki. Here, I rediscovered my love of photography and find I thrive on the story-telling aspects of photography and the connections it creates with others. I'm always trying to capture that elusive moment with the best composition I can create. I also love the whole editing process and presenting your images in a beautiful flow through the creation of slideshows and albums.
Our efforts for the environment:Without a healthy planet all the other wonderful things in life will fade away. All our efforts, no matter how small, are a step towards restoring a healthy loving relationship with our mother Earth. We use grid-feed solar in our home and office, drive a hybrid car and have protected a large section of our property as Land for Wildlife. We see a huge range of native birds here, as well as swamp wallabies, brushtail possums, bandicoots, echidnas and even platypuses! We bank with a local building society and we use Australian Ethical Investments for our superannuation, so our money can keep on working for the greater good, even while we sleep!
