Meet the Team
The couple met in Beijing in 2000 and since then have travelled the world together making images from the Himalaya of Tibet and Nepal to the beaches of Northern Spain, the Rain Forests of Indonesia and most points in between.
They share a simple philosophy; they wish to share their enthusiasm and love for the outdoors with a few a few small groups and individuals each year, whilst having a laugh at the same time! Learning should be fun!
Alister BennGuide & Instructor
Alister Benn is co-director of Available Light Images. Born and raised in Scotland, he is an award-winning landscape photographer who specialises in teaching expressive, creative landscape photography using the most up to date contemporary techniques. His style ranges from dramatic expansive landscapes to intimate and personal etudes of shape and form. He is as happy working in black and white as he is in colour.

Juanli is an accomplished landscape photographer and works mainly by feel and an intuitive understanding of balance and harmony in her work. She takes care of all of Available Light Images administration and trip planning. Juanli’s attention to detail and meticulous nature make her the perfect logistics specialist.
Your generosity of spirit with all things, but especially your sharing of your unique take on the art of photography was very much appreciated.
I highly recommend landscape photographers of any level to check-out Alister and Juanli’s workshops. You’ll have lots of fun, you’ll find fulfilment and you’ll be a better photographer for it.
I learned so much in an environment full of challenge and support and humor! You both made the entire adventure so smooth and enjoyable.
“Photography is comprised of at least 3 skills: composition, image capture and post processing. Improvement as a photographer requires you make progress in all three areas. Personally, no matter where you are on the this continuum I would encourage you to attend one of Alister’s workshops. He and Juanli are enthusiastic and patient instructors regardless of whether you are a relative novice or a seasoned semi-professional. I spent four days with them in Cornwall capturing several hundred images. While only one or two may ultimately result in a picture I am truly proud of, I left a better photographer with greater knowledge to apply towards my goals.
