Additional Info for Travel Photography Guatemala
“Imagine Guatemala- Our trip is 10 days. We travel, engage, spread goodwill and find amazing photographic opportunities. You will return with a jaw dropping portfolio of Guatemala. This trip isn’t just for anyone.
We seek those who are curious, love photography and want to travel as a traveller not a tourist to join us on our Beta trip to Guatemala. Our purpose is to make amazing photos and to spread kindness and goodwill wherever we go.
We kickstart our trip together in the lovely colonial town of Antigua. It’s a UNESCO spot filled with wonder.
We spend a day photographing the Maya Kite Festival on All Saint’s Day. It’s a celebration of those who have passed on. Some of the kites are as big as a two-story house. You really have to see it to get the full impact.
We then visit a boy’s ranch of discarded children that a North American set up to catch those who fall between the cracks. Finally we spend several days at a lake surrounded by majestic volcanoes. Each step of the way myself, Sherrlyn Borkgren and National Geographic photographer Karen Kasmauski will be there by your side to encourage, help and motivate you to better picture taking. If you are a wedding, landscape or portrait photographer you will find that this journey will enable you to be better as a photographer and a person. http://www.laughingplanet.org
This trip is physically easy but for those who want to climb a volcano we have a guide to lead the way as an option to the trip. Canoeing on the lake is one of my favorite pastimes and it’s quite calm but does take some arm muscle. It’s an option. You will be slinging around your own gear. All information is on our website Travel Photography called Laughing Planet Travel
This is not a tour and we expect everyone to be able to care for themselves and be helpful to one another. Traveling with us includes a lot of engagement with local people.
Some streets are cobblestone so good shoes and the ability to walk on uneven surface is a must.
If you aren’t really physical don’t worry, there are little golf carts (like taxis) everywhere you can jump into for less than a dollar. We support everyone no matter what your limitations might be. Most important is your flexibility, curiosity, positive and supporting nature to all on the trip. The walk to the Kite Festival is about a half mile on somewhat hill terrain.”
