Merinoholics: Meet Alex & Laura

About Alex

theprofessionalamateur.net

 

My name is Alex Fazekas-Boone. I live in a small city just south of Seattle, Washington called Tacoma with my beautiful woman Laura. Together we travel, photograph and share about all of the rad things we have the pleasure of experiencing in life. I am a Pacific Northwest native, and was born and raised here in Washington State. I come from a huge family, my mother was one of eight kids. I have three brothers, one sister, two nephews, three nieces and too many cousins to count. My family has always encouraged me to follow whatever I was passionate about from art to skateboarding to music and photography.

 

I have always made art in some fashion my whole life, but my main focus these days is photography. It’s something that just happened organically. I didn’t really set out to do it. I wasn’t like “Hey, I’m going to be a photographer now guys.” It just came together on its own and I think that’s what’s so special about it.

 

My other big passion is travel. It’s all I think about really. To me it is like a drug. There’s a reason it’s called a trip you know! It hooked me the first time I went on that road trip and saw the enormous basin of Crater Lake and the bison causing traffic jams in Yellowstone National Park. The thing I really like about travelling is that it takes me out of my comfort zone and forces me into new and strange experiences. I meet weird and interesting people I wouldn’t otherwise, and encounter scenes I couldn’t see back home in Pacific Northwest. Traveling ensures that my camera and I are constantly standing in front of fresh and inspiring people, places and things.

About Laura

I am a world traveling Yoga Instructor from the NW corner of the USA. I was raised in Tacoma, Washington by a loving family full of hardworking teachers (Mom + Dad + 2 Sisters). While I tried my best to be a rebel and avoid the teaching path, becoming a yogi revealed to me that I genuinely love helping people discover yoga and grow in their practice. Teaching is truly in my blood! Yoga has given me an entirely new life. It has changed and shaped me for the better. From my food choices to my finances to my friendships, yoga has taught me how show up in the world the way I always wanted to. It has connected me with so many incredible people and places. I can’t wait to see where else it takes me!

Favorite Minus33 Products: “Chocorua Midweight Crew and the Ticonderoga Lightweight Crew. They’re excellent base layers for the mountains or around town.”
