Description

Ecuador offers a rich variety of beautiful landscapes and some of the most colourful and authentic cultures of Latin America. Starting from the historical city of Quito, this photography expedition has been carefully designed to ensure that you spend enough time taking photographs of cobblestone streets and the most significant Spanish Baroque architecture in South America, as well as the everyday life of different indigenous cultures that maintain their ancient traditions, striving to make their millenary practices alive.
Our itinerary includes visiting captivating Andean villages, wandering around sprawling markets, and of course, admiring Ecuador’s most awe-inspiring landscape including lagoons, lakes, volcanoes, and sublime sunrises and sunsets.

  • JQ delivered his "Up close and personal: a Photographic Journey in South America, Asia and Africa" to Woking Photographic Society. The images were all terrific and some of the stories behind them quite astonishing, all delivered in a very personable style. A thoroughly enjoyable evening and we would love to see more of John's work at some stage in the future.

  • Hi JQ. I really enjoyed your presentation yesterday. Your use of light was superb. I wondered why the presentation suddenly cut off - thought it was maybe my connection. It has happened once before that fb have cut a photo webinar because of “nudity”. Pity they don’t seem to appreciate the difference between art and straight nudity.

  • Impressionante!!! I was just at the point of posting a comment when FB pulled the plug.
    Great set of photographs, and great presentation.
    I wish you all the best with your tours and hopefully this virus will be under control in the next 12 months and allow us all to continue with our lives.

  • JQ delivers a superb presentation - the photos and his explanation of how and why he took them was excellent but what was extremely impressive was not only the story associated with the image but the way he told that story.

    It comes across that he really loves his native country ( Columbia) and you great empathy for the local population and the tribes- people of the Amazon

    Absolutely superb, very professional and not to be missed
