"The trip to Patagonia far exceeded my expectations! The trip leaders not only had extensive knowledge of the region but their knowledge of photography and the proper times for the best lighting at each location enabled us to obtain excellent images. Patagonia is a landscape photographer's dream and my lifelong ambitions of shooting there were not disappointed!"
