Our names are Jasmine & Jemimah, but our friends call us Jaz & Jem.
A bit about Jaz:
I am a professional photographer with over 15 years of experience in various genres, including travel, documentary, portraiture and landscape photography. My passion for photography and travel has taken me to different parts of the world, where I've had the opportunity to capture stunning landscapes and meet fascinating people. My genuine desire to connect with people and share their unique stories has given me some amazing opportunities, including a solo trip through South Africa and working with South African Tourism during the 2011 Rugby World Cup. I have also had the opportunity to share my skills with others, in the form of workshops, teaching students in schools and hosting professional development for teachers. I am a mother, a sister, a wife and a friend and like you I understand what it means to wear different hats and struggle with the juggle.
During a solo trip to New Zealand, I, Jaz, realized there was a need for a tour company that could bring women together to share experiences, learn new skills, and make lifelong connections.
I shared this idea with my good friend and fellow photographer, Jem, and together we founded She Wanders Travel Co. Jem and I connected on Instagram several years ago and after a night chasing pineapples and the Milky Way, I knew she was going to be a lifelong friend.
Our friendship grew as we opened up about our past and discovered that we had so much in common. We speak the same language and often finish each other's sentences! She is one of my favourite people and I am honoured to have her as my partner in this adventure. (A note from Jem: this is well and truly mutual!!!)
A bit about Jem:
I am a professional sports photographer who enjoys chasing the perfect landscape image, while also managing my tribe of four children and other professional endeavours. My hunger to continue growing my knowledge base has contributed to success in photographic competitions and sales of my imagery to Government tourism agencies and features in national newspapers, websites and social media accounts. We are surrounded by natural beauty, intriguing architecture and interesting people. I use my camera to capture the world and then publish and print images with a focus on connecting the feelings of the moment with the magic I see in daily life. My work tells my stories.
We truly believe that women supporting women is both powerful and necessary as we juggle the demands of life, love and family.
