Travel Photography Jobs and Working as a Photographer in 2021

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.
