The Experience

Photography is more than mere photos, it is an experience, a sensation, an emotion that breath through the image. We have decided to organize this event in order to propose the perfect atmosphere to create mesmerizing images, which means :

A UNIQUE LOCATION | we are going to travel through Patagonia in the most beautiful and stunning landscape you've ever seen

PROFESSIONAL MODELS | we both have more than many years of experience and hundreds of photoshoot aligned

TIME TO REFLECT | we are also here to share moment of discussions and reflexion about the creating process, as well as silence and breath within the experience

AN ADVENTURE | Patagonia is a wild region, covered by incredible landscapes. The experience we are proposing is an adventure with a friendly group ready to live a entire week in connexion with nature (no internet, no phone, no fancy cloths). Just the silence of the wild, discussion around the fire.

Art Nude Photography

What is more natural than a nude body in a nude landscape? Coming back to the essential nature of the body, we are going to focus on Art Nude Photography, a style in which both Phylactère and Flora are specialized.

We will also bring wardrobe on location, more specifically dresses and fabrics that mingles well with the landscape

Although we are going to give priority to those who are traveling with us the whole week, if you are already travelling to the region and who’d like to join us for part of the trip, you are welcome to register for only a few days.

__________________________________________________

Because Patagonia is an expensive place, in order to reduce the cost of the trip and make it as accessible as possible, we have chosen a flexible form where everyone is independent:

- accommodation: you can decide to camp like us or find hostels on the way

- food: each person will be responsable for their own meal, however, for those who would like to camp, there is the possibility to buy and cook meals together.

- traveling: we will travel by car. We will make groups and share the cost of rental and gaz. For those who would like to be independent, you are welcome to rent your own car or decide with whom you’d like to travel in the car.

The itinerary

We are going to meet and leave from Balmaceda (Coyhaique) on January 16th early morning.

We will take the road towards the north and stop wherever we feel there is opportunities to take photos and camp at night.

We have a few pin points on the way, such as Cerro Castillo, Queulat National Park or Lago Verde.

By the second half of the week we will slowly start to drive back down south in order to reach the airport at Balmaceda.

Patagonia

Patagonia (Spanish pronunciation: [pataˈɣonja]) is a sparsely populated region located at the southern end of South America, shared by Argentina and Chile. It is known as one of the most beautiful region of the world. Still imprinted by the wild landscape and animals, rich for its land, vegetation than culture.

The name Patagonia comes from the word patagón,[3] which was used by Magellan in 1520 to describe the native tribes of the region, whom his expedition thought to be giants. It is now believed that the people he called the Patagons were Tehuelches, who tended to be taller than Europeans of the time. The region comprises the southern section of the Andes mountains as well as the deserts, pampas and grasslands east of this southern portion of the Andes.

Aysén Region

The landscape is marked by several glaciations that formed many lakes, channels and fjords. The region contains icefields including the Northern Patagonian Ice Field and the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, the world's third largest after those in Antarctica and Greenland. Laguna San Rafael National Park, reachable only by boat or plane, is one of the region's most popular tourist destinations. Until the construction of Route 7 (the Carretera Austral, or Southern Highway) in the 1980s, the only overland routes from north to south through the region were extremely primitive tracks.
