The Wandering Lens Blog

Can you have a travel photography career without social media fame? Let’s discuss… In a world where content is reminding us daily that we aren’t doing enough, seeing enough, sharing enough or working hard enough, we need to stop and remind ourselves, why are we letting this invisible (but all too visible) pressure zap our energy and productivity? Social media has created a monster of sorts, fueling our personal insecurities, unraveling a fear of missing out, virtually pushing and prodding us to join in and contribute to the content conveyor belt. I’m guessing I’m not alone in feeling a little ..read more

Photographing Australia from Coast to Coast – Colour Palettes and the OM-1 OM SYSTEM Mirrorless Camera When it comes to trusty sidekicks in the outback, you want plenty of water, a hat and reliable equipment that can handle the elements. As someone who isn’t a massive fan of camping, squirms at the idea of spiders within 100m and can’t change a tyre (I know!), I did a lot of research to ensure I’d survive driving into the centre of Australia. Despite travelling to some of the world’s most remote regions, from glaciers and deserts, Greenland to Chile, there’s something about my home country of ..read more

If we think about why we travel, the reasons can vary from seeking total relaxation and an escape from the everyday hustle, to craving cultural immersion and once in a lifetime experiences. You may love all-inclusive resort holidays, wilderness lodges, roughing it a little or splurging on luxury hotels.

I was recently invited to an industry breakfast event at the Australian Museum in Sydney, for the announcement of Adve ..read more

The ability to share images and video still exists just like on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and so on, the big difference though is all the extra features.
