Laurence & Kirsty are both from North Wales, UK.
In daily life, Laurence works as a photographer and Kirsty is an occupational therapist.
They introduce themselves:
“Growing up in North Wales, UK, I have always been exposed to the outdoors, with the hills to my left and the beaches to my right, I soon found my self in amongst it all from a young age. A passion for taking photos soon grew during my school years through riding mountain bikes. I quickly found my self pushing my own limits to see what I could create and this really gave me the drive to push into the professional world. Cycling makes up a huge part of photos I produce, but my craving for travelling the globe makes me always look in new directions for inspiration. Photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet amazing people and carry on living a passion. I strive to look at ways that I can expose the stories of people and amazing moments that happen throughout the world.”
“Born and raised in North Wales, UK, I have grown up having the drive to care for others, of which led to me following a career pathway in Occupational Therapy. Studying in one of my favourites cities, York and then returning to Wales to practice, I have always felt the need to take my skills to another country. Key concepts for my profession include the promotion of Independence, enablement, inclusion and long term sustainability. I feel these are the building blocks for all the therapy I practice. I am very outgoing and love to travel, having previous voluntary experience in Bangladesh. My main aim is to help others that have been less fortunate than myself by contributing to improving their wellbeing, but at the same time explore this amazing world we live in.“
