This collection of travel photography and landscape photography from Argentina was produced while on commission for Kallpa Tours and capturing images for a solo exhibition titled 'Photographic Tales of Latin America'. While I had specific briefs and shoots in some locations, other destinations I had more creative freedom to seek out amazing light and scout for the perfect landscape spots.
The trip started with a few days driving around the Salta Province of North Argentina. It is a stunning area where colourful rocks and canyons in the arid desert give way to the luscious Calchaquí Valley and delicious Cafayate Wine Region.
After this, it was onwards to the Mendoza Region for more wine tasting in Valle de Uco, to visit the unique National Parks of Talampaya (aka Death Valley) and Ischigualasto and to catch a glimpse of Aconcagua, South America’s highest mountain at 6,961m.
The next couple of weeks involved photographing destinations as varied as Buenos Aires, Argentina’s largest city and Iguazu Falls in the remote northeast of the country.
The remainder of the time photographing in Argentina was spent in Patagonia; the most dramatic scenery and powerful weather I have experienced anywhere. While Ushuaia receives the accolade of being the southern-most city in the world, the award for most impressive scenery is a hard fought battle between the granite stacks of the Fitz Roy Massif at El Chalten and the creaking body of ice that is Perito Moreno Glacier. Ending the journey in the Lake District of Argentina was the cherry on top of an already incredible cake!
