laurenepbath Yesterday afternoon I was hot-footed up to Port Hills on Summit Road and I discovered this secret view. It's hard to believe that I'm still in the city, I wonder what this afternoon will bring as I explore further afield. @christchurchnz #christchurchnz #canterburynz 3h

laurenepbath This is why I love travel - (and keep in mind that I NEVER research destinations or read my itineraries in advance, haha) I love to discover for myself. I love that Christchurch is on the coast and I never knew, it's so beautiful! I only have 24 hours here and I'm heading out to Lake Tekapo & Mackenzie today. Sunrise was spent here at New Brighton Pier and the sky obliged. @christchurchnz #christchurchnz #canterburynz 7h

laurenepbath I just had the surprise of my life flying into Christchurch New Zealand! I was doing my usual blasé airplane routine, looked out the window and saw this! My first time in NZ is shaping up to be everything I want it to be and more. I'm visiting Christchurch and Canterbury for 5 days, any suggestions? @christchurchnz #christchurchnz #canterburynz 18h

laurenepbath This is the last of the competitions I am promoting this month and I'm also a judge so it's me you need to impress. Haha. The subject is "movement" and all you need to do it upload a photo that celebrates movement and tag @kineticwemove and #howwemove on your post. I'm uploading this as my #howwemove shot as it's too good to upload just once! Haha. Oh, and the prize is a @GoPro, incentive much? 2d

laurenepbath Good morning everyone! (From a very weary traveler) I'm almost back on home soil and gearing up to visit New Zealand next week for the first time! Iceland was amazing and I can't wait to share the shots sometime, it was nice to switch off for a week. I just want to put one more reminder out to enter the @lilianfelsbluemountains Spring Competition #SpringIntoLilianfels - the prize is a sweet getaway in the Blue Mountains. This is one of my favorite properties to stay at and I have a great relationship with the team over there so I'd love to see more entries! One more flight to go and it's an Aussie touch down. :) 3d

laurenepbath Hey guys, all my Aussie friends are asleep and it's only 5:00 PM in Iceland! I promise I'm going to share all my Iceland shots at some point. I've been too busy shooting and learning to want to edit and upload while I'm here. With a little over 24 hours to go here I'm definitely sad to leave. Iceland is everything they say it is and more! Here's a "hyperlapse" I took this morning at Jökulsárlón lagoon. 5d

laurenepbath I'm almost back on home turf and thought I would share one more Provence latergram. Because they're pretty! Can't wait to share what I've been up to and to announce my next destination. @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 6d

laurenepbath These really are the colors of the Australian outback. Red dirt stained hands and hand picked wildflowers. My hand model is the always hilarious @mark_clinton . And since this is another Spring photo I'll remind you to tag #springintolilianfels and follow @lilianfelsbluemountains to win a cool prize! 6d

laurenepbath Yes, yes! I'm still posting France latergrams in the hopes of distracting you from asking where I am now. Lol. I'm actually in Iceland for those that are interested and the reason I'm not posting yet is because I'm on a photography workshop with one of my favorite photographers in the world - mister @colbybrownphotography . As I'm doing this for myself and learning I'm hoping to share the shots at a later stage. (Although I might post a few sneaky ones on Facebook ;)) 7d

laurenepbath Spring is a time for flowers, at least that's how I know it. It's really funny the way that you recognize seasons when you get into photography. I love winter for the light, summer for the long days, autumn for the fall colors and spring for the flowers. If you're uploading spring shots use #springintolilianfels and follow @lilianfelsbluemountains to win! 1w

laurenepbath I just realized that I haven't really posted the quintessential "Eiffel Tower" shot from my holiday in France. So here she is. Shot at dusk with a wide angle lens to fit her all in! @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 1w

laurenepbath Who remembers when I posted a shot of all these piles of fresh fruit in Spain and said it was a choice between posting that and posting piles of sweets? Well a whole bunch of you said "show me the sweets!!" Haha, here they are. Enjoy. @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_Spain 1w

laurenepbath Soooo I'm out photographing lavender fields and sunflowers in Provence France, as you do, and this guy comes into frame wearing a bright red T-shirt. Am I a stalker for shooting him? Haha. Wouldn't it be funny if someone on Instagram recognized this guy? @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 1w

laurenepbath I've been tagged to reveal 20 facts about myself by @deliciousbysara , I haven't done something like this in ages! Here goes -
1) I'm in this months Australian "Marie Claire" magazine, an absolute honor!
2) I originally started Instagram because I read it was fun.
3) I used my iPhone 4 to take photos for the first 3 months I was on Instagram.
4) I got into photography through Instagram!
5) My first camera was a Nikon D7000.
6) My best mate is @garry_norris - I got him into Instagram and now he has one of the biggest accounts in the country.
7) Garry and I met because he was my boss at a restaurant. We're both ex-chefs.
8) In January last year I quit my job to be a full time "Instagrammer".
9) At the time I didn't really know what that meant. I was the first in Australia and one of the first in the world.
10) I get paid to travel but it's much more than that. I'm a social media constant, educator, project manager and destination marketer.

Please read the rest in below comments ...

laurenepbath Here it is, the mystery object! I told you to be specific - it's actually the Eiffel Tower and her reflection in the fountains still waters. The winner is - @nnaoms_ whose most correct answer was "the Eiffel Tower reflected in the frontal lake ". @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 1w

laurenepbath I've been dying to share this photo for ages! And it's totally a bokeh shot! (For those that don't know "bokeh" is out of focus light and usually renders as circles.) I want to know if anyone can guess what this is? I'm going to give a shout out to the person who has the best guess, be specific! I'll post the focused shot next. From my @FlightCentreAu trip to Paris, France #FlightCentre_France 1w
