Machu Picchu

No trip to this region would be complete without heading to Machu Picchu. One of the worlds great man-made wonders, this archeological site is still providing mysteries to unravel. We will spend a day exploring the grounds, starting with a hike up to the sun gate. We will be heading into the park though in first-class luxury on Peru Rail's 360 view trains. From the train station, we will head onto a bus that will take us to the start of the park.

 

One on One Edit and Critique Sessions

After you take an amazing image, the job isn't done. Throughout the workshop, we will have both group and individual edit and critique sessions to show you how to get the most out of the images you are creating. I feel that these are crucial to helping people both grow as a photographer but also realize what their gear and images are capable of.  We will also have an introductory slideshow to introduce you to the new areas and give you an idea what to expect in the coming days.


Don't Worry, I Didn't Forget About the Luxury!

Throughout the entire experience in Peru's Sacred Valley, we will be staying at Explora Hotels in 5-star luxury. All of the Explora properties are designed to fit into and work with the environments around them. The meals we eat are all expertly prepared by top chefs often using locally sourced ingredients and despite being three courses, they are designed for an active lifestyle. The whole time we will have guides with incredible local knowledge, trained in wilderness first aid and a private van and driver.


If you have a non-photographic spouse or significant other that would like to join us on this trip, we offer a photog/non-photog rate of $8695 per couple.

The remainder of the payment is due by March 1, 2019

The longest hikes on this trip will be roughly 10 miles. The hikes are slowly paced and enjoyable, but they are still hikes. The Andes are at high altitude and because of this, our itinerary is paced to allow for acclimatization. Oxegyn is carried in the vans we use in case of emergency.

A car will be waiting for you at the airport or will pick you up at your hotel in Cusco, Peru to bring you to the Explora Sacred Valley property on May 2nd.
