Join Your Photo Adventures for Peru 2017!

Hiking in the Lares Valley, near Peru's sacred valleyPeru is one of the world’s most diverse nations and it’s incredibly photogenic. From the iconic views of Machu Picchu to Lake Titicaca, there is not shortage of epic landscapes to capture.

It goes beyond panoramic views, too, because the people, culture, and history combine to make Peru an incredibly interesting destination for any style travel photographer.

It’s safe to call Brendan Van Son a Peru expert, as he’s worked in the country off and on over the past eight years. Both he and I have lead photography workshops there, too, so we’re bringing plenty of first-hand Peruvian knowledge to this tour.

We decided to stick with Brendan’s 2015 workshop schedule, as it squeezes in all the mind blowing locations from Lima to Cusco, via the Colca Canyon and Lake Titicaca, in just two weeks.

Our Explore Peru photography workshop and tour features an epic itinerary, so join us to see all of Peru’s highlights in an action-packed two-week tour!

Your Photo Adventures Explore Peru 2017 Highlights:

Machu Picchu

The Incan Citadel that sits high in the Andes above the Urubamba River Valley is simply a must-see destination for any adventure traveler. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site for a reason!

Ballestas Islands

Unfairly labeled the “poor man’s Galapagoes”, the Ballestas Islands are chock full of wildlife including penguins, sea lions, and marine birds.

Colca Canyon

We’ll venture into the Colca Canyon, the second deepest canyon in the world, to capture Andean condors in flight. We’ll also have the chance to see some stunning nearby volcanoes.

Lake Titicaca Homestay

we’ll head to one of the most magical places on earth: Lake Titicaca. Rather than a day trip, we’ll spend the night on Amantani Island with local families.

About Your Photo Adventures Tours

Your Photo Adventures is a partnership between professional travel photographers Brendan Van Son and Jeff Bartlett (that’s me). After we teamed up to run our Destination Morocco tour in February 2016, we knew we wanted to continue running tours together. In 2016, we ran a second workshop in Cuba. For 2017, we have this workshop planned in Peru and, later this year, our epic Iceland Photography Tour and Workshop.

As a team, we both take pleasure in not only teaching photography, but also in sharing experiences with our guests. The name – Your Photo Adventures – says it all. We want to help you have an incredible adventure and help you capture your vision (and memories) with your camera.

We’re excited to run both Peru and Iceland trips this year as both Brendan and I know these destinations well.
