This remote desert will take your breathe away—and not just because of the elevation! Surreal rock formations, …

In 2010 I toured the northern provinces of Argentina. The trip was made with the support of the mate (mah-tay) company TARAGUI. Mate is for the Argentines what wine is for the French. It is at the core of their social structure. Over the course of 6 weeks, we interviewed all kinds of people and …

Red-legged Cormorant (Phalacrocorax gaimardi) Nesting Pair,  Puerto Deseado, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina

Laguna de los Tres Sunrise Clouds 3, Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina
During my recent trip to Patagonia, I was only able to see and photograph the amazing granite spires a few days due to the notorious weather. Most of my trip involved sitting around camp waiting for better conditions. It was not the most productive photography trip. However, when the weather was nice, it was amazing! …

Laguna Torre Cloudy Reflection 1

Laguna Torre Cloudy Reflection 1, Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina
Each year, the summit of Cerro Torre eludes climbers from around the world mostly due to the atrocious weather. They most often spend weeks or even months tent-bound patiently waiting for the weather to clear, but it rarely does. My own experience trying to photograph Cerro Torre has been equally challenging.

Laguna de los Tres Sunrise 5, Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina
Located in the Southern Andes Mountains of Argentina and Chile, Patagonia boasts some of the most dramatic mountains on Earth, including Mount Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, and the Torres del Paine.
