And remember everything you learn with us is knowledge that you'll keep forever Discover Deep Colombia Our unique experience includes learning about Colombian culture and the history of the Sierra Nevada, giving you context to take some amazing photographs, which have relevance and meaning. We take slow walk up the back trails in the hills and enjoy the natural surroundings Minca has to offer, practising our newly learned photography skills. This is a special experience, you can really capture with your lens, the real and unseen Colombia! OFF THE BEATEN TRACK As well as incredible photo opportunities, our experience includes an adventure on the back trails of Minca and a visit to a stunning waterfall, discovering a world of natural beauty.

I am an artist/ photographer who has been working on the Caribbean coast of Colombia for over 8 years. Passionate about art, especially the making of the photographic image, I studied photograhy at University of Hertfordhire in London, and have been pracitising the art for over 15 years. I love sharing my knowledge, I've lead photo workshops and adventures for over 4 years now. Recently I was chosen by the indigenous Arhuacos in Colombia to document the process of the mochila, a national emblem in Colombia. This 3 year project showcases the fascinating and intricately beautiful process of the mochila and unseen parts ofArhuaco life. I've worked with many local communties in the area so I'd love to introduce some of my knwoledge to you.
