About Us


Diana Russler and Bill Gent

Diana Russler and Bill Gent

After more than 30 years of working for national and international organizations, including the United Nations, we are now free to pursue our twin passions of photography and travel. During our professional careers, we lived and worked throughout the world in developing and developed countries. Now marching to our own beat, we have the time to immerse ourselves much more fully in the amazing diversity of life and its people, often exploring places that are off-the-beaten-track.

Our purpose in writing is to share our experiences, impressions, thoughts, and ideas in the hope that we are not just informing but also perhaps stimulating your curiosity and interest in travel and adventure.  The world may be shrinking, but our horizons can still be expanded.

In addition to what appears here, our articles have been published in Nature Photographer Magazine, International Living, Travel Post Monthly, FWT Magazine and other publications, while our photographs have been featured in various books and magazines as well as on calendars and in brochures. They are available at www.allegriaphotos.com and www.imagebrief.com/diana-45#/portfolio.

Please feel free to contact us at allegriaphotos@gmail.com.

    Hi Diana, I was talking to Anne that maybe you are not travelling anymore as there is no new post in Allegria, then I found out that you had to change your blog! Francine


Any thoughts? We'd love to hear from you!
