Vibrant Imaging is…
…the photographic partnership of Alan and Perri Wain.
We are passionate about nature, our wonderful local community, connecting with people and experiencing as much of life as we can!
A bit about Alan:Ballarat born, but lived in WA for more than twenty years. His 1st camera: a Brownie Box, at age 10 used to develop and print in his bedroom. Favourite subject at school: Film Appreciation. Good at understanding: how things work - knows a bit about lots of things. Loves: mountains, photography, all critters (and Perri of course)….
and a bit about Perri:Grew up in the Adelaide Hills, lived in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Penang and Takayama (Japan). 1st camera: a Yashica that she bought in high school. Studied photography as part of a Fine Arts degree. Good at understanding: how people work. Collects: friends, ceramics and artworks. Loves: living in Uki, photography, her dogs (and Alan of course)….
Together:We have been developing our photography and our business since 2002 and have been full-time professional photographers since the beginning of 2010.
It was difficult to choose a photo to represent who we are, so we put together this slideshow of us at work and play. Well mostly at work, but as you can see, its pretty enjoyable!
