Work With Us

Thanks for your interest in Explore Shaw! Want to make something fun together?

Explore Shaw is a travel blog focused on bringing readers along on epic adventures and bucket list experiences all around the world. Our readers come to our site for insightful experiences, informative guides and to find everything they need all in one place. We like to offer our readers our experience, complimented by beautiful photography, as well as some history and all the information they need (admission prices, travel advice and how to get there) so they can do it themselves.

A few years ago, as we were researching our first big trip together, it felt like the only people offering travel inspo and advice were people who had sold all their possessions and set off to travel the world full time and solo, living on as little as they could. This definitely wasn’t us and didn’t really inspire us. We like to show our readers that everyone can travel the world – around the parameters of normal life, like holding down career 9-5 jobs, paying off a mortgage, and being in a happy compromising marriage!

We love collaborating with brands, websites and companies that we are passionate about and truly love ourselves.

Why work with us?

Trustworthy Recommendations

Explore Shaw only features genuine experiences. The destinations and experiences found on our blog have been personally experienced by Emma & Thom. There are no guest posts, press releases or travel guides from places we haven’t been featured on the blog. This way, our readers can expect us to be 100% honest and trustworthy in our reviews, recommendations, and comparisons.


As well as a photographs and a recount of our personal experience, we also like to provide our readers with interesting and educational information about the history and significance of the attractions, as well as everything they need to know to visit these places themselves. This includes information about admission costs, opening hours, getting there, and locations, as well as links to websites and other helpful information that can make their planning a little easier. We’ve found that this helps readers learn everything they need from our site, and stops them having to research on several different sites or feeling like they don’t know how to have the experience themselves.

What can we do for you?

Destination Coverage

We’re open to exploring everywhere! A media trip is a great way to increase awareness of a destination and show people why they should visit and just how amazing their experiences will be! We can provide professional photography and videography, as well as stunning aerial photography to really showcase a destination from another point of view.

Please note: We are located in Melbourne, Australia.


We can provide you with high resolution photography and aerial photography images of our experience that you can use across your website, social media channels and marketing materials to advertise your destination, experience, activity or accommodation.


We’d love to review your hotel, experience or product and tell our readers all about why they would love it. It can help you grow your brand awareness, trustworthiness and get your experience, product or resort in front of a new audience. We’re also open to giveaways and competitions that would be authentic to our audience (not interested in loop giveaways).
