Ella is a professional photographer and EXPERT traveller. Though she is trained in Urban Planning, she could not ignore the call of the wild and set off from her hometown at the age of 9. One day, standing atop a big 'ole mountain she was filled with the overwhelming need to show someone the exact image imprinted just then on her retina. And so she discovered the camera - an inseparable friend (just call her Ella Camerahands) - and made it her mission to capture moments and simultaneously experience them completely. Once called "the friendliest person in the world" (Madison Walsh, 2014) she is superb at meeting new people and literally walks around with open arms. If you see her, please say hi.

Words by...Madison Walsh
Madison has always had a flair for the dramatic. An actress and a writer she is fortunate to work in a world of story and imagination. Travel inspires her stories tenfold as it opens her eyes to the "other" and feeds her spirit - and very importantly: her belly. She is the designated risk taker when it comes to food and has promised Ella she will "try anything twice, three times if she likes it". An emerging comic, laughter is an ESSENTIAL part of this girl's every day. If you're not making her laugh (very easy) then she will certainly make herself laugh instead (even easier). Madison promises to experience the dirty roads of her future to their fullest most present extent and urges you to do the same with yours.
