Meet The Maker - A New Perspective
“Our mission is to reinvent the appearance of familiar places and give them a new perspective.”
Who are we ?
The couple behind the lens are Edgar Pudāns and Norah Nguyen, two ‘21st-century voyagers’ who met back in 2015 during their first year of university. With their diverse backgrounds and complementary skillsets, their partnership – both personal and professional – was a natural development.
“We come from very culturally different places. I am from Eastern Europe (Latvia), and Norah is from Southeast Asia (Vietnam),” says Edgar. “Essentially, [the photography venture] started with our shared passion for travelling and storytelling through photography.
Our Creative Process
For landscape photographers, a certain level of planning will always be a necessity. Being at the mercy of natural light and other elements like wind and cloud cover, it can be tricky to ensure you’re in the right spot at the right time to capture that perfect shot. But thanks to modern technology, Edgar and Norah don’t have to leave things up to chance. “We use advanced applications like Sky Candy, designed to demonstrate the direction of sunlight during an allocated time of day,” Edgar explains. “Based on the location of the shoot, this will help us determine the time in which the shoot will take place.”
After photos are taken, the pair comb through for the best selections, which are adjusted and enhanced through the post-production process. Then the final images are printed and framed, ready for display at weekly markets in Paddington and Olive Tree Market and many other annual markets.
