"We look forward to meeting you and spending a week with you in the Netherlands, Japan, Hawaii or the American Southwest in the year ahead. We too, are travelers, and hope to share with you some of our experience in visiting and photographing gardens and natural areas of the world. You will travel as we do every year; walking, riding mini vans, public buses, trams and trains as we take the roads and paths less traveled in a more natural pace, from a gardeners or nature photographers perspective and with a sense of humor as well."
Aurora’s ever present smile and natural sense of design and aesthetics has allowed her to engage with and appreciate many forms of floral and garden environments. She is a keen student of Ikebana, Roses, shade gardens and environmentally appropriate garden design. She has been a successful participant in a number of garden and floral shows and competitions. Aurora is an enthusiast of a variety of plant, floral and garden types and has a special interest in developing and discovering natural flows in garden design and in the wild.
Robert is an avid nature and garden photographer who has always enjoyed assisting others in learning to take better images and enjoy photography in natural environments. He is a master of what he calls “the small camera”, compact digital cameras, and has used them successfully in competitions and commercial applications for several decades. His other “job” is that of a complexity theorist that studies technologies, nature and civilization. He is a practitioner scholar at Oxford University, England and is a writer and lecturer with research offices in The United States and the Netherlands.
Aurora and Robert Glaze are longtime walkers, travelers, gardeners and photographers who have created a number of noted and award designated gardens in their residences in Colorado in the United States. Robert will also lead and direct the special Signature Photography Schools and Tours as well.
