Photograph and discover an unspoiled wilderness of mountains, glaciers, forests and steppes from high alpine camps. This workshop is for active, hiking photographers who wish to experience the wilderness up close while enjoying the luxury of a fully outfitted camp. We will be visiting both the Argentinian and Chilean sides of this astounding mountain region, with some of the most dramatic mountains in the world towering over glaciated lakes and rolling, grassy foothills.
This workshop will be lead by Michael Strickland and our local guide Cecilia Costa as they introduce you to the unique alpine environments within the Los Glaciares and Torres del Paine National Parks. April is the fall season in the southern hemisphere and we have timed this workshop to photograph the colorful, warm hues of the changing fall foliage. Be prepared to hike up to eight miles into the alpine zones of these incredible mountains, where our outfitters will provide all the cooking and creature comforts in an alpine camp. You will have your own nylon tent for all the nights spent camping and hot drinks and food for each meal. Our camps will be within walking distance to the best high-alpine locations so that we can capture the stunning views in great light.
You will be in an exclusive small group of only 6 like-minded photographers. You will be learning from Michael and Cecilia how to improve your landscape photography as well as about the local geology, flora and fauna. They will be teaching camera techniques such as long exposures, exposure bracketing (both manual and automatic), as well as using various lenses to photograph creative compositions by stitching multiple exposures together. Learn how to capture the alpine glow reflecting in glacial waters of the lakes. You will have time to work on improving your post-processing skills, helping you learn to pre-visualize with the final image in mind. With so many dramatic landscapes, you will be captivated all day and even during the night, when we get the chance to photograph these stunning mountains bathed in stars!
