Join Discover Photography for the ultimate tour of a lifetime in Patagonia. Patagonia is dominated by the Andes, the longest mountain range on earth running the length of South America from Colombia to the Strait of Magellan and across to Tierra del Fuego. Patagonia covers about one third of the land area of both Chile and Argentina.
Our two centre tour will start in the Los Glaciares national park which is famous for Mount Fitz Roy and the jagged Cerro Torre peaks. We will visit all the iconic locations in this region to capture the classic mountain landscape shots. We will also capture the nearby glaciers for stunning views of compressed blue glacial ice and photograph several beautiful waterfalls.
Our second base is the stunning Torres del Paines national park of Chile, home to the famous Horns and Towers of Paine, jagged mountain peaks with distinctive shapes. While in Paine we’ll also get chance to photograph vast herds of wild guanacos, austral flamingos and other charismatic Patagonian wildlife.
All levels are catered for so whether you are new to photography, an enthusiast or a seasoned pro we provide a fun packed tour with a masterclass in landscape techniques from our professional photographer.
While on location you will receive dedicated one-to-one tuition to help hone your landscape photography skills. Richard will offer guidance on both the technical and creative aspects of landscape photography and always be at hand to provide feedback on your photographs. At each location we visit our tutor will make suggestions and offer advice on how to create wow factor images.
While most shooting locations can be reached by road we will do some hiking on this workshop. Hikes will typically be easy to moderate in difficulty and will be less than a mile one way. A few hikes may involve some moderate elevation gain and require travel over rocky terrain. A reasonable physical fitness will certainly facilitate your enjoyment of this workshop. Note: we are NOT at high elevation at any time during this workshop.
