Frequently Asked Questions

How to be sure to pick the right trip ?

If you have any doubt just contact me, I’ll be happy to help you choose the perfect photography workshop for you. The most important is to pick a tour that matches your interests, photography level and practical requirements.

Is it Hard to photograph people in Colombia ?

Colombia is one of 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 people photographs from Morocco. Our guide makes an excellent model too!

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.

Can I join a tour if I'm a non-photographer ?

Of course ! Workshops are designed in 3 different categories from beginner to advanced. So if you are novice in photography I would recommend you a beginner photography workshop which is a very good place to start with.

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 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 locker to keep your gear safe in your lugage.

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

What is the balance between photography & relaxation ?

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 personnal 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.
