John and Becca Guillote

Becca is the writer. She tells vivid stories of authentic moments, highlighting the beautiful, dangerous, dramatic and hilarious with grammatical correct sentences and her tongue held firmly by her cheek.                                                                          
John is the photographer. He portrays the layers of history, emotion, spirit and culture in each moment through his application of light, perspective, and detail. He also takes pictures.                                                                                               
Halcyon is the vessel. She carries her crew of two as they adventure and capture life together. Sometimes she accidentally offers substance for their storytelling with her quirks and ill-timed blunders.                                                             
The compass is the guide. It provides the confidence to keep exploring with the assurance of directional stability and the inspiration to maintain that wonderful wandering spirit.
