About Me
Hi! I’m Beth, a travel influencer, photographer and teacher of all things travel.

I began travelling in 2014 with what I thought would be a short holiday. I’ve now been travelling around the world full time for seven and a half years, taking photographs, writing about the places I’ve been and immersing myself in new cultures.

During my time on the road I’ve had so many different jobs. From working on farms, in bars, on a boat, as a cleaner, as a singer, an online English teacher and content creator./ influencer.

Heres my advice to you:

“Stop waiting for the weekend, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now.” – Beth Johnstone (sheisthelostgirl)

Client Testimonials

Dont’ take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

“Beth and Jake are very easy to communicate with, responding to emails promptly we were able to organzine a quality collaboration with ease. They are very detailed in their work and what they offer. Their photos are gorgeous, unique, and quite refreshing. I would work with them again in a heartbeat!” – Zach, The Chillhouse

I am delighted that there is a testimonial section on Beth’s blog site so that I can try to explain our experience with her (travel guide writer, photographer and instagram influencer) and Jake (professional drone pilot and photographer). The villa team reported that Beth and Jake were so easy to work with, and I could see from my very first communications with Beth myself that we were going to be rewarded with a superior influencer experience both in terms of their excellent and interesting photography, but also in the lovely way Beth has with words to describe her experiences.

Charming and professional at all times including extra work on a few shots that I particularly requested. They would always be welcome back.

Kindest regards – Pamela Hayes (Villa Sungai Bali)

Due to Sahana Villas being rather popular in the Influencer world, we get to experience a fair amount of collaborations and the people behind them. Hardly anyone has delivered such tremendous amount of work in return with so little talk upfront! Bravo Rose and Jake for being who you are and delivering such amazing content in truly wonderful quality. You outshine most. Travel safe and far
