THE AMANTE STORY
Why do we have so many pages, you may ask?
Mostly because if others succeed, than our business, AMANTE, succeeds. We see opportunities for both our clients and ourselves.
If we envisage an idea, then we want to run with it. We want the best for everyone.
Why Amante? What does it mean to you?
Amante is a person who enjoys or admires or has a special affection for something ….. an enthusiast or admirer.
We love life!! We love seeing faces light up with joy. We love interacting with positive people. Our mantra throughout our business and life itself is …..
ENRICHING LIVES THROUGH CREATIVITY
We, at AMANTE, can help to create a positive impact on those who take the time to explore what we have to offer.
We wish for others to reach their goals, be creative and in awe of what life has to offer.
So how will you succeed in doing that? ….. What is your main focus?
Are you mostly a photographer …. a tour operator …. or a B&B owner/operator?
Mmm – difficult question! I started out planning to be a professional photographer – and that is still my goal.
I can help my clients feel confident and passionate about the direction they are taking in life. I have the ability and the resources to take exceptional images that they are sure to love. It gives my clients assurance and self-confidence. That is what is important.
Is it just the images that you love?
Our prints and frames are gorgeous. I have completed extensive training on how to print museum grade prints on Canson museum platine paper. I can make exceptional, luxurious frames, including a box frame with floating torn edges – these really are superb and require a lot of patience and time to create. I also utilise professional companies that are accessible for myself as a professional photographer. The quality is exceptional.
Ok, that sounds great! Then why did you start the B&B?
In all honesty, it was supposed to be temporary, while the photography came to the fore.
However, I discovered that I love meeting guests and seeing how much they enjoy the accommodation. Our inground swimming pool during the summer months is a great way to chlll-out. In the winter the outdoor pergola is also popular. It’s not a resort, but it has everything to ensure the guests are comfortable and that they can connect with friends and family.
Go to our bnb site to find out more.
Are you planning on utilising the accommodation in other ways?
This three bedroom accommodation is also my photography studio. My next project is likely to be families and friends staying for several days and combining it with a photography session. How cool would that be?
Guests will soon be able to book our accommodation directly. We will also organise events such as the 5 Lands Walk, a walking/Kayaking tour and/or a photography course over a weekend with various professional photographers. We also plan on hosting well-being weekends aways. Subscribe to our newsletter to keep in the loop.
Below is a video of an event that I held at our accommodation. Be sure to listen to the end of the video to hear reviews.
What if I would like a photography session without the accommodation?
We will soon have bookings available for photography sessions at Modern Organic – a popular cafe, here in Long Jetty. Availability will be every consecutive Wednesday afternoon/evening, depending on bookings. Clients will be able to book the session online soon, at amantestudio.com.au. Here are a few videos that I recently produced that will give you an idea of what you can expect
So where do the exclusive tours to The Hunter and the Central Coast fit into all this?
We initially planned on taking our B&B guests on courses and photography sessions. However, you can now book our Kia Carnival to various destinations online at Amante Experience. If you’re interested in visiting The Hunter or The Central Coast, then why not let us do all the hard work for you. It won’t cost you the earth and you will have flexibility knowing that you are sharing the van only with your closest friends and/or family members, as you are exclusively transported to and from your destination in a COVID19 safe way. You can be assured that we disinfect the van every time and wear a mask while driving.
So what are your ultimate goals?
Create more Love.
The first way we can achieve this is to start with ourselves.
Start by giving more.
