How ? What ? Why ?

Frequently Asked Questions

I already lead my proper photography trips, can I co-lead the workshop with you ?

Of course, it would be a pleasure. 

You’ve got several options :

  1. We can co-lead the workshop together
  2. You just can ask me some help to design your own itinerary. I would put you in touch with the receptive agency.
  3. I accompany the group as translator and local referent photographer

As explained before I have more that 16 years experience working in tourism and leading tours so I can adapt to every situation. 

Can I book an single Workshop unit ?

The minimum lenght for a workshop is ideally 1 week. 

Actually it wouldn’t make sense to fly over the country for only 2 days of tuition. 

Nevertheless as I am living in Santa Marta It would be possible to do a 3, 4 or 5 day tours.

Don’t hesitate to message me for any question

What is the ideal duration for a photo trip?

Colombia is huge and diverse ! I would say 2 weeks is the minimum. 3 weeks being the ideal.

Do You recommend to visit all the Colombia or 1 or 2 regions is enough ?

Obviously we will see much more things if we travel all around Colombia, but we will spend also much more time in transportation. It is all matter of preferences. In my personal preferences, I am more adept of slow travel, and I like to know better a region. For example the caribbean coast, will offer a wide range of photographic opportunities in a relatively small area : deserts, beaches, jungle, waterfalls, portraits, wildlife, architecture, street photos, …, well, all a photographer would dream of ! 

What does the trips features ?

The tours feature private transportation and a local guide accompanying the group throughout the entire tour. Accommodation and meals are also included, so we can focus only on photography.

It is important you do let me know the basic details so I can customise your trip to your needs and preferences, including length of your trip, departure date, special interests and budget.  Please send me a message and I’ll answer you as soon as possible

These unique experiences focus on letting you enter in my artistic universe so you can develop better yours. I will transmit all my passion to photography, my techniques, my doubts, and my love for sharing. Well, I will transmit you everything. 

What about the lodging during the tour ?

It is up to you and your preferences. You can choose between standard, medium or high standard categories. The receptive travel agency have more than 500 options of lodging in the country, and generally the best ones. But if you have other preferences, you can also selected your own lodging. 

What about transportation ?

As for lodging, it is also up to you. Generally we use mini vans with few spare seats for the camera bags. If you would prefer it could be also 1 spare seat close to each passenger so everybody has a window to enjoy the views. 

Is the itinerary flexible ?

Despite there is an established program, I will let you tell me what you’re looking to accomplish with the tour. If you want to share your photos and get input, ask. If you’re looking to learn more about your camera or to improve your mastery of composition, light, etc, let me know.

One of the best parts of the photography workshops is to leave place to the unexpected. Everyday is different in Colombia and I will be pointing out certain areas saying : “lets go over there, looks like there could be an interesting photo…”

Is Colombia safe for a photo tour ?

If one country has a bad fame it is definitely Colombia ! You have probably seen lots of movies or series and imagine that all Colombians are traficants like Pablo Escobar.

In reality, it is all the contrary, Colombia are some of most friendly people I’ve ever seen.

They are happy by nature, very honest and love to share their country with you. 

Nevertheless like in every big city of the world there is some kind of precautions to take.

A famous saying here is “No dar Papaya” which means don’t tempt the devil. In other words avoid to exhibit an expensive camera hanging at your neck at midnight.

In your hotel room, by experience, I rarely heard any problems. A good rule of thumb would be to bring a small travel padlock to keep your gear safe in your luggage.

In general, just travel in peace, Colombia is safer than many countries.

What is the balance between photography & free time ?

Well it well depend on each photography workshop. Some tours are quite actives, like with trekking and expeditions, while other allow more relaxation and more individual exploration.

My personal advice would be to concentrate in the same region rather than covering the whole country. Colombia is large ! 

I’ll be happy to help you to find the ideal workshop for you. If you have any doubt, just contact me.

Is there a lot of people on shooting locations ?

You may be used to see crowded popular places for photography. In Colombia this is not the case at all ! This country is still very wild, and have a lot of hidden photographic places.

Nevertheless, the only place where there will be a lot of people is Cartagena, but we can avoid crowds by getting up early in the morning and have all the city just for us before tourists wake up.

Is it Hard to photograph people in Colombia ?

Colombia has the most friendly people I’ve ever seen in my life. I love this country in big part for Colombian ! They will always respect you if you respect them. Therefore before photographing people, it is always better to ask them.

In general cases they will says yes with a big smile. This is true for most of places.

In some other, being photographed is a profession, like in Cartagena and Bogota for example. Cartagena is world renown for the Palenqueras, the Afro-Colombian girls with its colorful dresses and selling fruits in the streets.

Selling fruits is part of their activity, but they are now living mostly from tourism and being international models ! 🙂 In case, a tip between 1 to 3 dollars will be welcomed for a picture.

Depending on the workshops, we plan photo shoots with models and tips photogenic people so you can have the opportunity to take photos of them.

So it is possible to come home with some amazing photographs. Our guide makes an excellent model too!

What is the best time to travel to Colombia ?

The climate that we find in Colombia is varied, since it is a country with different altitudes. However, the predominant climate is temperate and being close to the Ecuador, it is quite stable, with average temperatures of 24 º C. Colombia has two distinct seasons: the wet season, which runs from April to November, and the dry season, from December to March. If you are wondering what is the best date to travel to Colombia, we can tell you that, in general terms, Colombia is a country to which you can travel all year round. However, if you want to avoid the rains, we recommend that you avoid the wet season.

What is the rhythm of the photography Tour ?

These photography workshops are also the best way to travel at your own rhythm with only the people of your choice and the maximum flexibility.
