What you'll do

10 hour full day landscape and portrait photo expedition (Sundays only)

We will begin the day with pick-up from your hotel and head for a quick juice at San Pedro Market. We jump into our private transport and begin the drive into the Andes. First stop at a viewpoint to snap some shots before moving on to reach our first main destination: Chinchero market. Here we will spend the morning with a full photography workshop photographing the details and taking portraits of the locals as they go about their business in the hustle and bustle of the market. Next we have a light lunch of local empanadas before moving on to the impressive Lago Huaypo for a landscape workshop and to relax a while. We will finish the day with last light at Maras Salt Mines where we will take the time to explore and seek out the best compositions in this photographically rich location. The whole day is focused on photography with constant tips, advice and support from a photographer guide. (Note: this trip is Sundays only as this is the only day the market is open, for another weekday option check out our 'Salt Mines, Mountains and Quechua Farmers' trip).
Other things to note
The trip will involve a small amount of walking, although not strenuous we would recommend wearing shoes you feel comfortable in.
