Patagonia Photo Workshop Adventure - Argentina Edition

Come join us on this incredible Patagonia photography workshop adventure that focuses purely on the Argentinian side of one of the wildest and most beautiful regions of South America let alone the world. Set in the heart of the Andean mountain range in Argentina during fall colors, this adventure will allow you to experience Los Glaciares National Park and all its glory. This trip is unique in that it will provide an opportunity to see, explore, and photograph the famous Argentinian side of Patagonia rather than split their time between both the Chilean and Argentina sides that we normally run with our Patagonia workshops. This will give you more opportunities to come away with steller images of Mt. Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre (and the surrounding peaks) because of the additional time spent around the town of El Chalten.

Patagonia Photography Workshop Adventure

Argentinian Patagonia is one of the most sought-after destinations for outdoor and landscape photographers worldwide. Its breathtaking vistas, incredible mountains, glacier-feed lakes, and unique wildlife help make it so special. On this trip of a lifetime, we will focus our energy purely on the Argentinian region of Patagonia. Our workshop will begin in the town of El Calafate where we will photograph massive chunks of ice calving off of the face of the Perito Moreno Glacier located about an hour outside of town. From there we will head to the outpost town of El Chaltén where we will spend the bulk of our time on this workshop adventure. It is here that will direct our energy toward the incredible peaks of Mt. Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. These mountains are arguably some of the most beautiful peaks in the world.

Each morning in El Chaltén we will determine the best locations to explore for sunrise with Cerro Torre and Mt. Fitz Roy that could involve a mixture of hiking and or driving depending on the location. For sunsets each afternoon, we will drive out of town to find new vantage points to feature the entire Patagonian Panoramic Mountain range. This will provide you with a solid mix of photographic opportunities throughout our time in Patagonia. When the weather is less forgiving, we will spend time focusing on post-processing and image editing using a variety of different applications. Bottom line is that we will help you get to the best locations at the best time of day with the best light possible.

Absolutely! Although I might be a bit biased 😉 While there are a number of photography workshops being offered in places like Patagonia, none of them offer a similar experience. Not only have I been working as a photo workshop instructor for 18 years, which included time leading trips for National Geographic, but I have spent over 10 years exploring the Southern Patagonian region of South America. I work hard to make sure I meet each of my clients at their own level, providing ample 1 on 1 time while we are out in the field. This helps to make sure that you get everything possible out of this workshop experience!


This workshop begins and ends at the El Calafate Airport in Argentina (FTE).

The first day of the workshop is on April 18th and ends on April 27th, 2024.


While this workshop is only for ALUMNI of Colby Brown Photography Workshops, it has since opened up to anyone interested in exploring the Argentinian side of Patagonia. 


Depending on which country you are from, you might need a VISA to enter Argentina. Most countries however will allow you to get a tourist Visa on entry. Please make sure you do your research well in advance of our adventure.


Because this workshop is currently still far off, we can not predict what, if any, COVID-19 restrictions or rules will be in place. We will update this section of the FAQ as we get closer to the start date of this workshop.


While this trip is mostly focused on landscape photography, we should have a wide variety of wildlife photographic opportunities that could include; Guanaco, Patagonian Fox, Andean Condor, Caracara, Rhea, and possibly Puma.


Patagonia is known to have some of the most fierce weather in the world. It is not uncommon to experience 80-100 mph winds on a trip to this region of the world. In addition, Patagonia is home to a massive number of glaciers, which help create their own weather systems. While this combination can make for some challenging situations, it is also why this region of the world is so popular with photographers. Dramatic weather means dramatic light which can provide incredible photographic opportunities along the way.


In Argentina, once we get to El Chalten, the hikes do get a little more challenging. Every morning (weather permitting) we will do optional sunrise hikes up to the best viewing points for either Mt. Fitz Roy or Cerro Torre. These can vary in length from 5k to 9k each way, with some elevation gain. We leave early in the morning, giving our group plenty of time to not be in a rush up the trails. We work together as a group, making sure everyone makes it up to the best possible views. While these hikes are not easy, they are not overly difficult either. Being optional, you are free to partake in each morning’s hike, just 1 or anything in between.


The workshop tuition listed above is based on double occupancy (shared rooms). If there is availability for a single room for the workshop, the cost is $1200 USD extra. This is a first come first serve basis and is based on room availability at our hotels in both Chile & Argentina.


With a focus on landscape photography, you will want to have the lens mm length equivalent from 16- 200mm. This can include a 16-35 for wide-angle landscapes, a 24-70 (0r 24-105) as a walk-around lens, and a 70-200 to allow you to zoom in on distant mountains for some more intimate scenes. If you are interested in wildlife photography as well, you might want to bring something like a 100-400 or 200-600 as well to help you fill much more of your frame with your subject.

In Colby’s gear bag you will find the following…

Sony a1 (2)
Sony 14mm f/1.8 (For Astro)
Sony 16-35 f/2.8 GM (For Landscapes)
Sony 24-105 f/4 (All-Around)
Sony 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 GM or 200-600 f/5.6-6.3 G (For Wildlife)

Pedro Kin

Workshop Manager/Photo Instructor

Pedro is a Portuguese landscape photographer based in Slovakia but you’ll often find him in the most scenic mountains, forests, and fjords of Europe. Favoring the cold landscapes and the unspoiled nature of northern Europe, the higher latitudes do not stop him from going after the perfect shot. When not traveling the world with his camera, you can find him back home teaching workshops, testing new gear and experimenting with photography.
