As a subscriber of The Wandering Lens, you’ll be receiving weekly (or sometimes monthly depending on my travels), emails filled with photo tips and photogenic travel guides.
If you ticked the box to receive information about photography courses and eBooks, there will be a series of emails coming your way to share more about how to improve your photography and perhaps even work in the industry. If you opted to receive emails about travel tips and guides, I’d suggest starting here, and browsing the library of existing guides to destinations all over the world.
