Details & sign up
Our Patagonia photo safaris are limited to a maximum of eight participants. In many ways six is the ideal number but, often it seems, one or two participants have to drop out at the last minute for pressing family or personal reasons. So for that reason we have set our target number at from 6 to 8 participants — with a maximum of 8. (Other photo tours to this part of the world typically set their group size at 12, 14 or more). In the past, we have always had enough signups, even waiting lists. We invite both film and digital photographers, however digital photography offers the best and most convenient opportunities for constructive critiques of work done during the workshop. You don't have to bring a laptop but you should have some sort of storage device on which to store or backup images. The laptop is best but it can sometimes push airline baggage weight limits. In addition to making photographs in the magnificent landscapes we visit, there will be instruction on importing, editing, key wording and adjusting your images in Lightroom and Photoshop.
Participants are responsible for arranging their own flights from the US and elsewhere to Santiago, Chile's capital. Your domestic flights are included in our package price, however you must arrive in Santiago with enough time or, if you arrive earlier, return to the airport to make it onto the booked domestic flight continuing south.
The price of this Photo Safari is based on double-occupancy rooms. To guarantee a single room the single supplement is $1,000 (includes both regions). A deposit of $900 holds your space and the balance must be paid by 60 days before the start of the trip.
Our cancellation policy is standard for the travel and photo-travel industry. If for any reason you need to withdraw from this Photo Safari, please notify us at least 60 days before the start of the trip. At that time we will refund your deposit, less a $250 cancellation fee. But if notification of cancellation is made between 60 and 30 days before the start of the trip, we must retain the entire $900 deposit. If notification of cancellation is made less than 30 days before the start of the trip there will be no refund as all of our costs in Chile will have been finalized. We highly recommend acquiring travel insurance. If we, Salvaje Corizon and I, must cancel the workshop your deposit and full payment will be refunded.
Because this Patagonia adventure is such a major commitment, I'd like to encourage any interested photographers to contact me directly, by phone (719-588-5114), or by email if you have questions or for more detailed information. In case I am traveling and temporarily out of contact, you can also email our terrific guide/outfitters at Salvaje Corazon.
