THIS IS EDEN... with Peter Whiter of DoubleTake Photographics

How long have you lived/worked in Eden?

All of my life, apart from: a short stint at Pambula hospital until the ripe old age of five days, an interesting sojourn to Sydney where I gained my commercial pilot's license and about six months living in Merimbula.

What do you like most about your job?

I love the people that we connect with through DoubleTake. The real estate work we're doing producing hilarious videos that are watched and loved by people all over. Photographing people in and around this place has to be the best gig going.

What do you like least about your job?

The driving, also people who think being a photographer/videographer isn't a real job and who don't realise how much work is involved in the editing process.

Your favourite place in Eden and/or the Bega Valley?

Mirare, the headland where my home is. I love that it's now known by its First Nation's name.

If you won $1miillion what would you do first?

Call them back coz... well, without buying a ticket it seems impossible! I would move the Eden Mountain Bike trails project closer to becoming a reality, and eat out at Drift more often with someone special.

One thing you cannot live without?

Food, water... but I guess aside from the obvious, the ability to walk across the room, pick up my guitar, sit down and play it for as long as I can.

Three words that describe Eden best?

Raw, Natural, Beauty.

What do you think Eden needs the most as a community?

For all of us to partner with people who have vision and expertise; be accepting and kind.
