Torres del Paine & Los Glaciares National Parks
25 March - 4 April 2015
Instructors: Jon Fuller & Maria Cecilia Costa
Patagonian Chile and Argentina contain some of the most spectacular scenery on earth, with beautiful lakes, glaciers, and near-vertical mountain spires soaring thousands of feet above the surrounding terrain. Guanacos and emu-like rheas roam the surrounding steppes while giant Andean Condors circle overhead. Visit this awe-inspiring region with Moab Photo Tours' Jon Fuller, along with local Patagonian mountain guide and professional photographer, Maria Cecilia Costa. Hone your photographic skills and refine your photographic vision while being guided to the best locations to capture this remarkable landscape in camera.
Jon Fuller has been shooting professionally since 1983, when he was first published in National Geographic magazine. He has shot stock photography for three stock agencies in London, Tokyo, and New York for many years, and was also a founding partner in the Moab Paper Company, producing fine art ink jet papers for artists and photographers. His images have appeared in hundreds of publications world wide. More of his work can be seen on the Gallery pages of this website, or at his new website, (still a work in progress), at www.jonfullerphotography.com. To see more of his images of Patagonia, go to
