    We’re Changing Our Perspective: Introducing #DTBehindTheLens

    We're Changing Our Perspective: Introducing #DTBehindTheLens

    Many years ago, Dame Traveler began as the first female travel community on Instagram. Our mission was simple – to spotlight the bold, badass women traveling the world. And, as years have gone by, we’ve realized that what we originally set out to do has become something of a cliche. A small, yet dreamy female figure staring off into the skyline in juxtaposition of the grand landscape that surrounds her. It’s a repeated image that we love dearly, but we’ve found ourselves struggling with. That’s why we’re shifting our perspective (physically and philosophically). Introducing our newest series #DTBehindTheLens.

    We want to celebrate the women behind the lens just as much as the women in front of them. And even more importantly in terms of this new series, we want to showcase the photographic work and imagery created by these women!

    We're Changing Our Perspective: Introducing #DTBehindTheLens

    The idea of #DTBehindTheLens came from our frustration of seeing hundreds of male photographers’ work being shared across social media… and only seeing a smattering of female photographers being shared. Sad, right? With the many women traversing the world and capturing its beauty, we want to highlight the work of female travel photographers out there. And that’s why we’re shifting our perspective and celebrating the women behind the lens too.

    #DTBehindTheLens will celebrate the artistry of female travel photographers around the world. Our goal is to elevate the incredible craftsmanship of female image-creators traveling the globe. You’ll see incredible landscapes and the stories of women who captured the essence of their environment with artistry and intentionality. So, yes, you’ll still see our beloved Dame-Traveler-esque images with a woman in the frame, but you’ll also see epic landscapes captured by badass female photographers.

    Let’s celebrate women’s work. Let’s spotlight their artistry. Let’s prove that beauty comes from so, so much more than the perfect dress and flowing hair. Let’s show the world through the lens of the women who explore it. Join us on this journey.

    Wander Woman – Lost and Found

    In a world where everything happens so fast, where there are so many voices shouting in my ears, there is nothing more important than developing the muscle needed to listen to the still, small…
