Dramatic peaks!  Glistening in the early morning sun!

 

 

 

Sometimes alternately hidden and unveiled by swirling clouds.

Often providing a stunning backdrop for a guanaco!

Or reflected in a mountain lake.

 

 

Glaciers cascading down dramatic rock faces, spawning waterfalls.

 

 

Some calving into fresh-water lakes.

And a huge glacier, Perito Moreno, that we will walk on, with crampons, cameras in hand!

Condors and rhea.

 

Eagles and caracaras! And the Magellanic woodpecker!

 

This is beautiful big-sky country.  Wide open spaces where you can see for miles. 

A place where gauchos work cattle with horses and dogs.

A place where we can make dramatic compositions of landscapes, glaciers, birds and beasts! 

We have worked with local providers to design and build an adventure that explores the Patagonia region of Argentina and Chile.  We’ll gather in Buenos Aires, Argentina and fly south (domestic round trip included in cost).  We’ll initially base in El Chalten, giving us access to amazing vistas and trails in the Fitzroy region. 

Then we’ll relocate to Cafayate – putting us in position to experience Perito Moreno glacier and some interesting bird photography opportunities.

We’ll journey across the border into Chilé and set up camp in luxurious yurts in Patagonia Camp.  From here, we’ll explore the Torres del Paine region of Chilé’s Patagonia!  Prepare yourself to capture a wealth of images – breaking for classy picnic lunches with extraordinary views!

For many, the surprise will be the opportunity to photograph such stunning and rugged mountainous terrain (including glaciers) without ascending to high altitudes.  Indeed, we may never ascend to 2,500 feet above sea level, even when walking on glaciers!

Double Occupancy:  $8,950
Single Occupancy:  $12,950

The Pantanal, in Southwest Brazil, is probably the best place in the world to photograph jaguars. And that photography is largely accomplished from a boat. We have concocted a photography safari that will take you to the best spots at the best time with a great local operator. Jaguars are the object, but we'll also find giant river otters, ocelots, macaws, caiman, capybaras, monkeys, anteaters, tapirs, and toucans!

Winter brings out the "ice" in Iceland. Glaciers photograph with strong blues. Waterfalls are often ice encrusted or even frozen solid. Ice, stranded on the beaches is in a better position for backlight - and looks much more dramatic in close-ups. And, Iceland presents an outstanding opportunity to compose great images of the Northern Lights at nigh! We'll also take time to explore an ice cave!
