Extra Perk - Tour Photo book

Patagonia Photography Tour Photo Book

The amazing thing about a photo tour of this kind is not just what a fantastic experience this is, or the great people that we meet along the way, or perhaps the places that we visit, but what we take back home with us.
Besides the new memories and friend we make, Photo Tours South America will produce a beautiful photo book with selected photos from this journey, as a testament of this incredible trip.

During our last breakfast, at the end of this tour, each one of us will select their best snapshots while at our final critique and share meeting.

A photo-book has, of course, the amazing quality of its content, but it also enhances its value as a ritual of discovery, provided by the re-visiting of the photos through time,  by re-living this journey and its memories.

Once our journey concludes, the best photos of the journey will be included into a special edition photo-book of the Patagonia photography tour. One copy of this book will be delivered to you, at no charge, as a token of appreciation for our journey together.
