Andes High ALTITUDE Adventure May 2-17, 2019
Mountain Photography Expedition
I’ve had my eye on the Andes for a while and now it’s time to explore. Care to join me?
I love big mountains and the Andes are as big as they come in the western hemisphere. I’ve done a little homework but I cant say for sure exactly what we’ll find there. Machu Picchu is a no-brainer of course. I’m also dying to try my hand at those crazy reflection photos and night photography on the giant salts flats of the Salar de Uyuni (google it). Rainbow Mountain looks awesome too and I know we'll have some great opportunities to capture some of the indigeous cultures of the Andes. But beyond that, it’s a mostly a mystery. That’s what makes it so appealing.
- Incomparable Machu Picchu
- Flamingoes by day and the Milky Way by night on the world’s highest desert and largest salt flats (Salar de Uyuni)
- the seldom visited ‘other side’ of Rainbow Mountain
- Street Photography in La Paz, Cusco & Lima
- Sunrise & Sunset Landscape Photography in the 7 Lakes valley in heart of the Andes
- Captivating indigenous mountain peoples and cultures
What's A Scouting Mission?
Do you enjoy heaping sides of adventure and discovery on top of a main course of photography when you travel? Is not knowing exactly what tomorrow holds more appealing than the predictability of the beaten path? If your answer is yes (or, hell yes) to these questions, then a Scouting Mission just might satisfy your cravings. In a nutshell, a scouting mission is a trip where I take a very small group of photographers (3 max) to a place I’ve never been before to lay the groundwork for future photography workshops. I used to do these trips alone, but I’ve found that the company of a few like-minded souls makes things even more interesting and fun.
If you’re not sure if this type of trip is for you – and it absolutely isn’t for everyone – more details are available here about what to expect from a scouting mission. You can also read my blog post and see photos from my recent scouting mission to Ladakh, a region of northern India in the heart of the Himalaya mountain range. Finally, you can see what past participants had to say about their experience on scouting missions here.
