Peru, located in South America, is one of those countries that is truly a photographers paradise. Between the indigenous Incan culture, gorgeous landscapes and amazing ruins of Machu Picchu, its hard not to fall in love with this country. For eight days I have been leading a photography workshop though my company The Giving Lens with a phenomenal group of photographers from all over the globe. While the workshop offered these participants the chance to experience Peruvian culture and capture the beauty of Peru, the true focus was working with an organization called Picaflor House (supported by UK based Globalteer) that focuses on providing child education to those in need. In 2013 I will be offering another photography workshop here in Peru that will not only allow you to hike the Inca trail to reach Machu Picchu, but help us establish a photography program through the Picaflor House to help teach these under privileged kids how to use a camera and creatively express themselves.
