BLOG

Welcome to my blog. Here I will post photographs of my travels, news about my current projects, post-processing articles, photography workshops and photography tips. I hope this blog gives me the opportunity to share my photography and travel passions and what I have learnt in this journey in the last 20 years.

║ Off to Patagonia

Off to Patagonia

I am flying to Punta Arenas (Chile) next week to meet travel photographer Pep Roig and research the route that we will follow during the workshop in March. We will discover some magic spots and I can\'t wait to set up my tripod and start shooting.

I will post some photographs when I am back from the trip to hopefully inspire you guys to come along with us. Peter Eastway and I will do a presentation in Momento Pro on the 27 of November for those of you interested in the workshop or who just want to enjoy a photographic presentation of Patagonia. Click on the link below to find out more details about this event in Momento.

Bolivia and Chile with Richard I\'Anson - August 2014

I am very happy to announce that our next workshop to Bolivia and Chile will be with travel photographer Richard I\'Anson.

You will probably know Richard because of his work with Lonely Planet Images and his books. He has published ten books including four editions of the best-selling Lonely Planet’s Guide to Travel Photography and the large format pictorials Australia: 42 great landscape experiences, Nepal and India: essential encounters as well as being judged Australia’s top travel photographer by leading commercial clients and industry experts in the 2007 Capture Magazine Australia’s Top Photographers Awards. Check out his website: http://richardianson.com/

The highlights of this trip will be the Salar de Uyuni and the Atacama desert. Both locations are among the most photogenic landscape sites in South America. View the trip itinerary and get more information about the Bolivia/Chile workshop here:

Pep Roig

Pep has been traveling for +30 years and he is so busy traveling and taking photographs that he does not even have time to set up a website. An \"old fashioned\" travel photographer who I had the good fortune to meet whilst having breakfast in Mandalay (Myanmar) some years ago.

Pep\'s favourite places in the world are Alaska, Patagonia and North India \"because they offer breathtaking landscapes and an incredible connection with nature\". He defines his photography as simple without \"special effects\" and does not like to do a lot of post processing with his photos. Robert Capa said that \"if your photo is not good it is because you were not close enough\". Pep says \"if your photo is not good, it is because you have not walked enough\". Pep is without any doubt one of the best travel photographers in Spain. His images are published worldwide in books, magazines, newspapers, brochures, calendars, posters, cards and websites.

Last time I went around the world I spent 22 months traveling non stop in Asia, Africa and North America. Before that I had been traveling intensively in Europe for a year and then in the Middle East and India for 6 months. I thought I had traveled a lot but that is nothing compared to the amount of traveling that Pep and Richard have done. They just don\'t stop traveling. I really mean that. I love India and I have been there five times but Richard has been in India and Nepal more than 30 times and Pep currently lives in Varanasi when he is not in Alaska or South America having a rest.

I feel so privileged to organise a trip with these travel photography gurus !

Atacama Desert, Chile

The Atacama Desert is a plateau in South America, covering a 1,000-kilometre strip of land on the Pacific coast, west of the Andes Mountains. It is commonly known as the driest place in the world. Some weather stations in the Atacama have never received rain. The Desert is probably also the oldest desert on earth and has experienced extreme hyperaridity for at least 3 million years, making to it the oldest continuously arid region on earth. Some lookouts and sites are incredibly photogenic.
