About Us

We began our interest in photography because of our love of animals and the natural world. In photography every detail becomes important and a possible subject; it has changed the way we look at the world. We feel so lucky to be able to do something we love and attempt to capture the beautiful and interesting sights around us in order to share our view with you. We hope that looking at our images inspires everyone to slow down and really SEE what is around us.
