The Huayhuash mountain range is formed by twenty one high altitude Andean peaks. It is considered one of the most beautiful mountain sceneries in the world, and is protected as a Peruvian Conservation Area. It became world famous by Joe Simpson’s “Touching the Void”.
This pristine mountain environment will be the setting of our workshop sponsored by Lowepro. A unique hands-on experience involving breathtaking locations, extreme conditions, and the chance to learn how to capture human element and outdoors activities. Over the past 5 years, Lukasz Warzecha, our workshop leader (and winner of the prestigious Nature’s Best Magazine Windland Smith Rice Award), has carved out a formidable reputation as one of the top adventure photographers in the world. Living everyday life by his own words that ‘This is the most exciting time to be a photographer ever! He has photographed on 4 continents on assignment for National Geographic, The North Face, WL GORE, Mountain Equipment, Petzl and Black Diamond (among others).
“EXPERIENCE ADVENTURE/TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY FIRST-HAND IN ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFULLY RUGGED AND UNTOUCHED ALPINE ENVIRONMENTS IN THE WORLD.”
We strongly believe that creating a great adventure image is a team effort. During our 7 days of shooting our workshop leader, Lukasz Warzecha, will share his experience of working with some of the world’s leading adventure-sport athletes, and we’ll be able to explore the creative process when working within the mountainous environment. This workshop is the perfect opportunity to learn how to effectively merge landscapes and the human presence. Lukasz will make you familiar with shooting fast and light when trekking or climbing, carrying only the bare minimum of gear. Plus we will also have a chance to explore more complicated lighting scenarios, and learn how to find the balance on what to take and what to leave behind to make the most of your shooting day. In addition to experiencing an unforgettable learning adventure, workshop attendees will receive a goodie bag from Lowepro, one of Lukasz’s sponsors.
