Bolivia Photography Workshop

I’m extremely excited to announce a second photography trip to South America for 2020.  I’m even more excited that I’m again bringing along my good buddy – and fantastic landscape photographer – Thomas Heaton to co-lead the trip with me. 

Bolivia is amazing.  I’ve run through this part of South American nearly a dozen times and it still never stops blowing my mind.  I have long been predicting that this might become the next big destination for photographers, and there are so many reasons why that could happen.  Few countries in the world are as dramatic. And few are as under-explored by photographers as Bolivia.

This is going to be an incredible adventure.
