Myself and two friends went on the fall Patagonia trip with Marco and Jessica. The trip far exceeded our expectations in so many ways. Starting with the photography, Marco made sure we were at spectacular locations every sunrise and sunset, and when asked, helped everyone with their compositions.
We were absolutely blown away by how beautiful Patagonia was and we got photos that were beyond anything any of us expected. The light, the colors, the mountains, the rivers, the interesting trees, shapes, all were like you had walked into a perfect scene that had been crafted for photography. We learned a ton very fast on this trip. You shoot a lot and get to see and learn from how others interpreted the same scene.
In particular, Marco is an excellent photographer, and has the patience and generosity to share his best secrets. Several times I’d be looking at a scene a particularly standard way and Marco would come up and show me other creative and interesting ways to see the same scene. And Marco’s post-processing lessons were invaluable.
Regarding the overall experience of the trip: this was made by how much we liked Marco and Jessica. They were really great fun to hang out with, and such good hosts. This goes down as one of my best travel memories. I’d thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone who loves landscape photography, and wants to take some great photos, and learn a lot.
