Sand to Stone, Ultimate Chile!
with Gregory Basco and Keith Bauer
Who is this Trip For?
This trip is designed for you to capture fantastic images of Chile's most amazing places from North to South. If you want to improve your landscape and wildlife photography (and your post-processing!) while taking amazing photos in an exotic destination, this is the trip for you! You will have three professional photographers with you at all times (our local guide is a photographer too) to provide a combination of local natural history, post-processing (LR and PS), and photographic expertise as well as knowledge of Canon, Nikon, and mirrorless camera systems. Whatever and however you shoot and process, we've got your back!
Join Greg and Keith for an amazing trip to Chile. We'll start our trip in the beautiful city of Santiago. We'll then fly north to the Calama airport. Upon arrival, we take our private bus to our hotel in a beautiful colonial town on the edge of the Chilean altiplano. We'll spend a few days in the altiplano photographing geysers, vicunas, a magical salt lake where the crystals have formed patterns and blooms that offer us a myriad of compositional choices, flamingos.
We'll then head south to Patagonia for the remainder of this photographic workshop. We'll spend time in this amazing part of the world with stunning mountain views, rivers, wildlife and jaw dropping landscapes. We'll also have a fair chance at photographing Andean Condors, Pygmy Owls, and Lesser Rhea (an ostrich-like flightless bird).
This is a trip unlike any other to South America to share the beauty of Chile.
