Callum has been a part of Rotary International for many year, joining Harrogate Brigantes. He has been a key player in their work on the Nepal Education Project, where he has helped install computer suits in schools and taught teachers computer skills.

Rotary International is a world wide organisation with millions of clubs spanning across almost every country on earth. Working on a local scale, clubs help their own communities by raising money and supporting other charities as well as running their own projects. Internationally, clubs come together and work on monumental projects. Their current push is End Polio Now whe they are working with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to eradicate Polio world wide.
Little Wanderlust Stories is a Blog run by Janey Brechin. She has been travelling all over the world for the past few years and has written some epic stories about her travels and advice for future travelers.
Callum met Janey out in New Zealand, they clicked instantly and went on some outstanding adventures together. They met up again when they returned to the UK and their relationship blossomed into more than just friendship. The they now live together in Glasgow, a prime location for weekend adventures into the Scottish Highlands.
Janey not only runs Little Wanderlust Stories but has been fully involved in the creation of River and Soul. You will see her alongside Callum guiding tours in 2018! Keep an eye out on Little Wanderlust Stories to read all about it!
Charlotte Gale is a fellow Rotarian and a great personal friend of Callum. They went out to Nepal together in 2014 to work on the Nepal Education Project with Rotary. Her photography skills were highly important to documenting and for marketing for the project, and her photos are always in use to help progress it and to constantly move the project forwards.
"Using predominantly ambient light, I work on location throughout Yorkshire, London and beyond. Originally from a digital marketing agency background, I specialise in commercial photography, including marketing, food, interior and event photography. I am also a self confessed travel addict and love photographing new places and cultures."
Charlotte has been kind enough to let us use her pictures throughout our site and marketing. You may see a little mark of her's at the bottom of some of our photos.
If you are looking for a Photographer we cannot recommend a Charlotte Gale Photography highly enough!
