The Patagonia Region of South America has been a bucket-list item of mine for most of my adult life. I am so excited to say that I have not only been through the region, but will now be offering a Workshop of all the incredible locations local guides led us to.
Longtime associate and friend, Ron Modra, will be co-teaching this Workshop with me. Ron was a 26-year staff photographer for Sports Illustrated and has traveled the world capturing action at major sporting events and creating amazing portraits of superstar athletes across the globe. His extraordinary images have landed on the cover over 70 times!
He also shares his extraordinary images in his book: A Baseball Life :: Four Decades Inside the Game.
Currently Ron shares his extensive knowledge through workshops and I am very excited to be teaming with him for Patagonia. Please read Ron's Bio.
We both spent two intensive weeks with local guides lining up the locations and the best times of the day to create magical images.
We are now ready to share these awesome locations that include: Los Glaciares and Torres del Paine National Parks. We will also be photographing glacial lakes, icebergs, warm tundra and animals native to the area that spans portions of Argentina and Chile.
We will photograph two glaciers (from land and up close from a boat). We will also get you up close and personal with amazing icebergs on Lake Argentino.
We will have knowledgeable local guides on hand to lead you to all of the iconic locations, as well as "locals only" spots that will tantalize your creative senses.
We expect this workshop to sell fast, so don't wait!
