Welcome to Lux & Us.
We (Carlo & Laura) are a photography duo based in Canberra, Australia. We specialise in lifestyle and portrait photography.
We both have jobs not related to photography but Lux & Us is where we pour our passion.
Whats with the name?
The word “lux” has two meanings for us - one being the true definition of the word. “Lux”, of Latin origin, literally means “light”. The second meaning… well, we’re keeping it a secret for now.
If I am not taking photographs I’ll be dreaming up mine and Laura’s next travel destination. Having a South American background (yes I speak Spanish), I have visited the continent a number of times throughout my life which has spurred my passion for travel.
On a quiet day, I’ll be watching highlights of my favourite football (soccer) teams and players on TV or YouTube - I won’t tell you who my team is in fear of losing you as a client… here’s a hint though - it’s FC Barcelona :)
I get the hiccups everyday, usually more than once. I am a vintage clothes lover (hoarder). Currently, there are 8,724 photos on my iPhone - I spend way too much time taking photos of the sky and my dogs.
I have had an interest in photography since high school and I am currently studying photography to upgrade my skills. Plus, Carlo is always imparting his photography wisdom on to me. For now, I am the assistant photographer/chief creative officer (self appointed) of Lux & Us.
