Hi! We are Daniel, Amanda, Aria, Ally and Deuce.
So you’ve watched some Youtube clips of people adventuring around the country, you’ve probably seen some @Tripinavan episodes, or some other couple or family off on the road making the most out of life?
You have thought, man, that should probably be me! I think I could do that!
So did we!
We have made the big decision that we are at a place in our lives that we think we can do this successfully. We have 2 dogs (Beagles) that will make some of it difficult, and a (mostly) delightful 2.5 year old daughter, Aria.
We have decided that we are in a bit of a rut in our home in Newcastle, and we want to take our show on the road. We will be creating a social media presence while we get ready and when we are away, and we are going to do the Vlogging Youtube thing too! All the while Daniel will be taking his award winning photographs from the best spots all around our beautiful country, and we’ll be running the business side of that online.
We are soon to be heading off on our big lap of Australia to explore, capture and enjoy all there is to offer in the outdoor life of tripping around Aus. We look forward to having you all along with us for the ride as we get ready to go and start our adventure! In the meantime we will be sharing local day trips or practise camping trips, fitting out of our vehicle and preparing to leave, plus everything in between.
Daniel – husband, father and a fine art landscape photographer, with his own gallery and online store. He used to be a Communications Technician in the Air Force, but has now moved forward to follow his passion of photography to see where it takes him. Daniel loves capturing sunsets and sometimes sunrises, but most of all loves getting to the most unique and picturesque locations he can.
Amanda – wife, mother, primary school teacher and photography assistant. I have been teaching for 7 years, in many schools in both NT and NSW. Daniel and I actually met through photography so the fact that our future is now mostly about photography, really doesn’t surprise me. I absolutely love being outdoors and exploring new places!
Aria – our 2 year old daughter, who is full of life and energy and of course as most 2 years olds, full of attitude. All Aria has known is photography and exploration, as when she was 9 weeks old she came with us to our pop-up retail shop and at 11 weeks old embarked on the road-trip moving from Darwin to NSW, with adventure and exploration along the way. Since then, there hasn’t been a week gone by where she hasn’t explored somewhere new or been amongst nature.
Ally McBeagle (5yrs) & Deuce Beagleow (4yrs) – our two beagles. As most beagles, they love to explore with their nose to the ground, so on our lap I am sure the scents they will find are going to send them into worlds of happiness. They are definitely typical beagles with their attitudes and naughty behaviours that I am sure are going to test our patience regularly, but hey that is just going to allow us to have more great stories to share with you all. Ally is a very strong willed girl and Deuce, he is more easy going and compassionate, but will still stand his ground if needed. Both are somewhat trained and we will be working on more training before and during the trip.
