Photos of Patagonia

Below are some of the photos taken by Brendan van Son on past photography workshops in Patagonia. Of course, the photo potential is endless down at the end of the world. This is but a snapshot of what you’ll be able to capture. There are just so many incredible photo spots in Patagonia; it’s unreal.

El Chalten
Loving the macro function of the Canon 35mm f/1.8 RF f/5.6, 1/50sec., iso800, @35mm
Fitz Roy
f/16, 1.6sec., iso100, @120mm
Lago Roca
f/11, 0.3sec., iso100 @60mm
Andean Fox
f/5.6, 1/800sec., iso800 @270mm
Puerto Prat
This image is from our second visit to Puerto Prat. The light was bouncing off the peaks in the distance, and the clouds were moving in streaks across the sky. So I thought I’d play with some really long exposures. f/11, 135sec., iso100 @70mm
Punta Arenas
f/11, 25sec., iso100 @135mm
Perito Moreno Glacier
El Chalten

Torres del Paine
