hello there

We are Ciara & Jack and we form The Copper Knots. We live together in the Northwest of England alongside our malevolent dictator of a cat Barry!

We met many moons ago in the Andean mountains in Cuzco, Peru... outside a cheesy nightclub which served cheap Pisco Sours!

Adventure has always been a shared passion and although we might not always agree on the directions... we always agree that these adventures are best shared.... Shared and captured and so of course there is always a camera in one of our hands!


When I haven't got a camera in my hands (which is rare as I also run Ciara Doone Rush Photography) I can usually be found on two wheels pedalling around the countryside, up the side of a mountain or clinging onto some rock face somewhere really hoping Jack hasn't forgotten I'm still on the end of the rope... or simply curled up with a good book and a glass of something red!


Originally from Brighton, I have an affinity with the sea, however these days I'm more likely to be hanging onto rocks like a limpet in an attempt to scale them... I'm also a firefighter with a love of music from jazz and country to the Beastie Boys.
