Hakan is a landscape and astroscape photographer based in the Coromandel, New Zealand. ​Focusing on specific details within the landscape, Hakan's images often veer towards a much simpler and minimalistic composition. Hakan's first camera six years ago was a mirrorless Sony and he's been shooting with them ever since. You could say he's old-school when it comes to new-school tech.

Rachael is a landscape, nature and travel photographer based in Palmerston North, New Zealand. She has lived in the USA and Asia, and traveled through more than 30 countries so it’s safe to say she has a passion for discovery, travel, adventure, and capturing it all on camera.

Rachael's landscape and travel images have won awards within New Zealand and internationally. As an Ilford Master, Rachael is a strong advocate of the printed image as she believes printing is an integral part of the creative process. The excitement of seeing an image in print is something she never tires of.
