It’s gazing in awe as nature puts on a light show, standing outdoors as the climate reaches its extreme, walking through city streets etched with history and swimming in seas that change my perspective of the world.
Travel Photography – Destination Guides + Creative Development
The Wandering Lens is the leading publisher of travel photography guides, listing photogenic locations around the world alongside outdoor adventures, photography tips and travel experiences.
If you get sent into dream mode simply by looking at an idyllic screensaver image, flicking through guidebooks or browsing travel images on Instagram then we’ll get along just fine!
This site is all about inspiring the creative within to capture the world in your own unique way. Everyone loves to share photos from their travels or adventures on social media, with family and friends or even professionally so why not make the photos incredible? Make people say ‘WOW’ every time they see where you’ve explored this time.
Who is behind the site? Hi, I’m Lisa Michele Burns (waving at screen), an Australian photographer who created this site way back in 2015 as a way of blending my experience as a journalist with a love of all things travel. You can view my portfolio of work here but otherwise, this site is a library of my adventures.
You’ll find a collection of Fine Art Prints available to purchase here with a minimum of $15 from each sale contributing to environmental initiatives and conservation projects. The print collection features images captured in regions of environmental significance such as deserts, glaciers, coral reef systems and rainforest from Greenland to Namibia, Chile to Australia.

Destination guides to cities such as Singapore, Tokyo and Kyoto are listed as the most popular photography location guides online.

The Creative Photography Course + eBook Library
With the world turning online more now than ever, I’ve developed a six month program for photographers looking to improve their photography and develop a creative portfolio. My photo tours and in-person workshops have been put on hold for the time being due to Covid-19 so this online course or collection of eBooks is my way of still connecting and sharing with photographers all around the world. Hopefully one day soon we’ll still be able to meet for a photo adventure somewhere!
Join me as I share the adventures of The Wandering Lens. I will be on the lookout for travellers to share their images via Instagram @the_wanderinglens using the hashtag #thewanderinglens so if you’ve been inspired by something you read here or just want to share some of your own adventures of wanderlust or amazing photographs I would love to hear from you! Those keen to join the private Facebook Group for readers, request an invite here.
