Founded by Australian photojournalist Lisa Michele Burns, The Wandering Lens is the leading publisher of travel photography guides with a current monthly audience of 125,000+ readers primarily from the US, UK and Australia.
Showcasing photogenic destinations, outdoor experiences and unique places to stay, the site is also educational, sharing photography tips + creative advice. Since its launch in 2014, the site has become a trusted source for visually inspired travelers seeking their next photogenic location.
Popular content focuses on adventure, natural wonders and the underwater world which connects with a major project in 2019 that will see Lisa photograph a series of destinations to document landscapes that have been carved by extreme weather conditions and changes in climate above and below the water level.
As a boutique content creation business, The Wandering Lens also produces visual marketing campaigns, image libraries, social awareness and editorials for tourism boards, travel industry brands and hotels.
Working with you to develop a creative strategy to showcase your product or property within a collection of professional images, I’ve worked with leading brands such as W Hotels, One &Only Resorts, Accor, IHG Worldwide, CUNARD and boutique properties like Kokomo Private Island and Richard Branson’s Makepeace Island.
