A Photo Workshop in Patagonia

Presenter: Michael Perkins

In April of 2017 Mike attended a Photo Workshop in Patagonia. Both Chile and the Argentine portions were visited. The trip was designed not only to visit some spectacular sites but to improve the participants understanding and abilities with regards to landscape photography in some challenging conditions. We shot from pre-dawn to late night to capture the mountains at as many light conditions that we could. In Chile we visited the Torres del Paine National Park, and stayed in a lodge just outside the park boundary. The mist on the river and the early morning light on the peaks was spectacular and the dawn colours were well worth getting out of bed for, despite the cold mornings. One highlight, which will be illustrated, was a sunset over the massif, with its reflection in the still waters of a mountain lake.

In Argentina we photographed the area around Mount Fitzroy and Cerro Torres, culminating, for some of the hardy ones, in a hike to the lake and ice sheet at the base of Cerro Torres where we camped for three days. A one day side trip to the Perito Moreno Glacier provided some exciting photo opportunities including a glacier calving. This one hour presentation will attempt to illustrate and highlight all the wonderful scenery of the region.
