About us

We are two UK-born sisters who grew up surrounded by culture. Our home as children was open to guests from all over the world as a place to live while they studied the English language. This meant that before we’d even reached our teens we’d shared a home, food and gifts with people from all over Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and more. And with that, the seed was planted...

Between us, we have a wealth of experience in travel journalism, photo and video shoot production, travel guidebook production, feature creation, creative direction, branding and marketing. That’s why we’ve also created Contemporary Class Services, providing an extensive, high-end offering of creative and commercial production services.

Contemporary Class


One of the best things about travelling the world is the connections you make. We've had the pleasure of meeting some incredibly talented adventurous-types from all over the world - many of who have been involved in the inspiration and production of Contemporary Class. You can meet them too, in our informative Insider's Travel Guides.
