Candida Baker – Publisher/ Editor

Sitting on the verandah of her cottage in the hills behind Byron Bay is one of publisher and editor Candida Baker’s favourite ways to spend some time. As a writer Candida has written numerous books, and she’s worked in senior jobs in journalism for many years. Her passions include photography, art and natural horsemanship, and she sees Verandah Magazine as a natural extension of the rich and varied life around her in the beautiful area she calls home.

Photographer and owner of fashion label Samson & Bronc, Sam Drewe has a fine eye for detail when it comes to planning photo shoots. Growing up in Sydney, on the Central Coast and in the Northern Rivers, Sam’s visual influences have come from his love of landscape, horses and the wild wild west.
