Creative duo Grace Picot & Liss Connell take us on a wild journey to the Kimberley

In BLOG
Does traveling the world to remote locations with your best friend sound like a dream job? Dear friends Grace and Liss have made this dream job a reality. Growing up with a photographer father, Grace spent her childhood around cameras and naturally picked one up herself. Living in New South Wales in Australia, Grace has taken on a career in photography which has now unravelled into a life of travel, adventure and passion. Liss (@lifeintheslowlane) on the other hand, decided to quit her 9-5 job a few years ago and (down)UP-grade to a 55 year old-van, beginning her “life in the slow lane” – she has spent her time traveling and not knowing where the road is going to take her. Life has worked out quite magnificently for these two, down-to-earth beauties.
Teaming up together, most trips that Grace and Liss go on, now involve a lot of adventure, exploring remote locations, sometimes a Van or two, or a boat/plane, and of course hundreds of jaw-droppingly beautiful photos.

With the dynamic duo being the perfect compliment to each other – Grace behind the camera, and Liss – in front (and sometimes reversing these roles). Liss and Grace produce photos that take your breath away and make you want to buy a ticket, jump on a plane and spend weeks on end adventuring.

Today, the power of social media is prevalent and both women are no stranger to using this to their advantage. Their recent trip to the amazing Raja Ampat Islands aboard the Coral Princess is just one of the many perks of being a talented freelance photographer ready for new experiences with your best friend in tow. You literally feel like you can dive into the photos taken on this trip and that age old-saying – “a picture is worth a thousand words” makes us agree with Grace in that these are probably worth “two thousand”.

We were lucky enough to catch up with Grace and Liss before they headed off on their next adventure to the Kimberly, in the northern part of Western Australia aboard Odyssey Expeditions. They explained that they were going on a boat (a little bit of an understatement), would have patchy signal, but were really excited to have some Beachgold pieces with them for their trip! Have a look at what the girls got up to in one of the most remote and beautiful places in Australia…
