The shared Argentinian and Chilean region of Patagonia is one of the most incredible places on Earth, boasting pristine and dramatic scenery that makes it a landscape photographer's delight. This is where lush rainforests meet with the jagged peaks of the Andes mountain range, looming high on the horizon. The landscape is at once beautiful and wild, revealing delicate and rugged compositions at every turn. This autumn photography workshop in the heart of Patagonia will have you capturing glaciers, blazing sunsets and the fiery hues of red, gold and burnt orange that taint the foliage during fall. At this time of year, there may be a layer of fresh snow, making for truly enchanting scenes. The tourists will be few and we'll have our pick of locations both on and off the beaten track. Join us on an adventure of a lifetime! Choose a date and check availability below.

Daily itinerary

Day 1
Patagonia Photo Workshop in Autumn - day 1

Day 1: Arrival

We'll begin the adventure in the bustling Argentinean city of El Calafate, where you'll arrive on your chosen flight. You will then head to your hotel in the heart of the city, where you'll check in. There will be some time to rest before we meet together as a group in the evening for a delicious Cordero Patagonico dinner – a famed parilla-roasted Patagonian lamb dish that will make your mouth water in anticipation! You'll get to know your fellow travellers while your photography guide goes over the itinerary for the days ahead.

After dinner, we'll stay overnight at the hotel.

Day 2
Patagonia Photo Workshop in Autumn - day 2

Day 2: Perito Moreno Glacier

We'll rise early on day two for breakfast, before setting off for the beginning of our journey towards the beautiful Perito Moreno glacier. We will capture its blue ice glistening in the sun until the evening, wandering through the Patagonian forest as we hunt for compositions with the autumn foliage framing the glacier behind.

Our evening will be spent at El Calafate.

Day 3
Patagonia Photo Workshop in Autumn - day 3

Day 3: El Chalten

After an early breakfast, we'll travel the 3 hours that it takes to get to El Chalten – a small village located in Argentina. We will base ourselves in this village for the next two nights.

In the evening, we will head out for a sunset shoot at a nearby canyon, where lush vegetation meets the flowing water of the Fitz Roy river snaking towards the snowcapped peaks of the Andean mountains. No doubt there will be some fascinating colours in the sky, clinging to the clouds overhead as the sun begins to set.

Day 4
Patagonia Photo Workshop in Autumn - day 4

Day 4: Fitz Roy, Lago Desierto

Day four sees us returning to the Fitz Roy river for another magnificent sunrise shoot. The Fitz Roy massif of El Chalten is breathtaking with the first light of alpenglow bathing it in deep red hues.

Our day will be spent in the Lago Desierto region, chasing waterfalls with our cameras and practicing our long exposure photography techniques.

In the evening, we'll shoot the sunset at a nearby viewpoint, with panoramic vistas all over the surrounding area and the peaks of Fitz Roy in the distance.

Day 5
Patagonia Photo Workshop in Autumn - day 5

Day 5: Torres del Paine

We'll rise early on day five for breakfast, before setting off on our journey across the border towards the beautiful Torres del Paine National Park in Chile.

There will be a multitude of wildlife to photograph along the way. We'll make stops to capture them grazing in their natural habitat. Some of the animals that we may see include puma, guanaco, ostrich and armadillo.

The closer that we get to Torres del Paine, the wilder the landscape will appear to be. You'll catch your first glimpse of the Andean mountain range, rising high into the clouds. Along the way, we'll make numerous stops to capture the wonderful surrounds.

Once we arrive at our accommodation within the national park, we'll check-in and have some time to freshen up. Don't get too settled yet though, as we'll soon head out for our first sunset session at a location nearby.

Day 6
Patagonia Photo Workshop in Autumn - day 6

Days 6-8: Torres del Paine

We'll spend the next 3 days visiting various locations within the Torres del Paine National Park. Our itinerary depends on the weather conditions. As the weather in this region can be quite dynamic, we will not have a set itinerary. Rather, your photography guide will keep an eye on the conditions and plan for you to be at the right places at all of the right times to capture the most incredible shots.

Some of the highlights include:

- Harbours of Pehoe lake, including stony bays with a variety of foregrounds to choose from

- Panoramic view from Explora hotel

- Optional 1-hour hike to Mirador Condor with a stunning 360-view to Cuernos, Paine Towers, Lake Pehoe and Glacier Grey

- Hike to the Nordenskjold lake: we’ll see the dead forest on the way and plenty of small bays

- Salto Grande waterfall

- Rio Serrano Sector with wonderful bends of the river, gaucho and horses in the water

On one of the days, we will head to Lago Grey, for the full day excursion to the Grey Glacier. The cruise will take up to 4 hours.

There will be some time to explore the city centre before we meet together for a final farewell dinner in the evening as a group.
