Tours of a Lifetime
Join renowned Argentine photographer, teacher, and documentary filmmaker, Ossian Lindholm, on the world’s only photography tour to be paired to an exploration of the high-altitude wines of Northwest Argentina—a magical journey that is perfect for photographers of all levels. An exceptional and inspirational teacher, Ossian is dedicated to capturing, conserving, and sustaining the landscape, nature and culture of Argentina—all through his passion for photography. One of South America’s finest photo journalists and artists, during your unique photography adventure Ossian will be sharing the secrets of his art—explaining how to capturing the special light, angles, and colors of this enormously photogenic and pristine region.
In addition to his hands-on field instruction, Ossian will immerse you in his extensive knowledge of the region’s geography, wildlife, cuisine and culture. By day we will follow a carefully planned route, with daily hikes among one of the world’s most peaceful and diverse landscapes. Our evenings on this dream photo tour will be spent in interactive Photoshop sessions and photography reviews with Ossian—accompanied, of course, by the world’s finest high-altitude wines.
Stunning sights and subtle magic are the focus of this photography adventure, which ranges across diverse landscapes. Our itinerary, designed by Ossian, spans the five distinctive biomes of Northwest Argentina: the sub-Andean humid sierras of the east; the fertile valleys, the canyons, and the high mountains of the Andes; and the high plateau of the Altiplano, or Puna. The highest vineyards in the world thrive here, bearing grapes that will become elegant, fruity white Torrontes, or full-bodied red Malbec wines.
The temperate valleys, where cattle and farming sustain life, have spawned a strong gaucho culture too—something you will experience and photograph up-close. We’ll tour the world’s highest vineyard, at Colome, see (by special invitation) the James Turrell museum, tour the magical town of Cachi, and explore Los Cardones National Park and the Quebrada de Humahuaca, a World Heritage Site. You’re sure to capture the visual essence of each, and also to have their soulful beauty revealed, on our extraordinary high-altitude wine and photography tour! – See more at: http://travelvisionjourneys.com/tour/argentina/#sthash.dmrgOnfW.dpuf
