Thank you for your interest in collaborating with LENSES&LOCALS!
WHAT IS LENSES&LOCALS?
L&L was founded in 2015 by Australian couple and photographer duo, Ayesha Martin and Gavin Host. After thirteen months of travelling Japan and North America, we realised we wanted to share our photographs and growing destination knowledge of the world, with the world. We created this online space to inspire others to escape their comfort zone, and to travel far and wide, with the tools to capture their memories with beautiful photographs along the way. L&L has a strong focus on helping readers expand their photographic knowledge, as well as showcasing destinations through the art of both written and visual storytelling.

”I had the great chance to meet Ayesha and Gavin. We had a day on Santorini to spend and of course Ayesha and Gavin didn’t want to shoot only the highlights of Santorini but the inner, wild beauty of this island. They were willing to walk, hang, jump everywhere if that would offer them a privileged angle for their shot. I have participated in many different professional shoots all over Greece and I’ve worked with many different people, but I was surprised with their real passion accompanied with a high professionalism.”

“Ayesha and Gavin contacted us just after opening our small hotel in London with a proposition of taking some photos and writing a blurb about the property. Both Gavin and Ayesha were lovely and gave a fantastic write-up of the property and supplied us with some incredible images which we continue to use for our marketing. I can highly recommend any small hotel operator seriously consider the proposal of LENSES&LOCALS as this type of exposure in invaluable to building a strong business.”
