As some of you know, I’ve been leading photographic expeditions to the Amazon for the last 4 years, having Colombia as a base. Apart from my travel photography workshops, I’m also dedicated to teaching documentary photography in between workshops and photographing my home country.
One of the most rewarding things this experience as a teacher has is to observe how photographers who have attended my workshops have become close friends and have created a certain unity among each other. It is for this reason that I have decided to create an event where some of these photographers and friends can re-unite and share their experiences.
The Photographers Meeting finally happened from the 3rd to 7th March 2017 in the Department of Nariño, southern Colombia. Due to the logistics and transport to some locations, the maximum number of participants was 20.
These are some of the photographs taken during their time in Nariño. The video was done by my talented friends at Simao Producciones.
For those wanting to visit Colombia, my next photographic adventure is in November 2017 and includes the Amazon jungle and tribes, colonial architecture in the north and some natural wonders in this amazing country. Keep an eye on my Facebook page or drop me a message. I promise it will be awesome!
