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. 

Peru is amazing.  I’ve run through this part of South American nearly a dozen times and it still never stops blowing my mind.  Few countries in the world are as dramatic. And there are just endless compositions for photographers in the country. This travel photography workshop to Peru will be epic!
