About Us

Hello and yia’sas!  We are Darren Kirtley and Helen George, and this is our story, short version…

On our first visit to Greece together, in May 2006, we spent a week on the mainland, exploring the antiquities and visiting with Helen’s cousin, Ilias, and his family.



We then spent a week on the island of Lesvos, the land of her mother’s people.  Although Helen is 100% Greek, this had been her first trip to her ancestral roots.  Darren had visited, and fallen in love with the country during a family vacation in 1977.  We had such a positive experience on this trip that we decided to make Greece and Lesvos the focus of our fledgling new business, KG Imagery LLC.

After working in the corporate world of computer electronics, data processing and health insurance for the past few decades, and due to a series of both tragic and serendipitous events, we decided to fly out of our respective cubicle nests and do what we love best…traveling, taking pictures, writing, and shopping for imports.



We run our business out of our home in the SierraNevada mountain community of Michigan Bluff near Foresthill, California, but our travels carry us into different time zones, different climates, and sometimes very different ways of life.




From the diverse destinations we visit, we bring back with us pictures that capture the true essence of the area, stories that capture the imagination and compel you to visit these places, and unique items from the country or village of origin, hand-created with local materials or ingredients.



Although we favor Greece, and especially Lesvos (also known as Mytilene), we occasionally visit other parts of the world as well, including French Polynesia, Micronesia, Australia, and several areas within the United States.




But we always love coming home to our dog, Buster, and our “little slice of heaven” in Michigan Bluff, in between trips.
