This is a unique opportunity to get up close to the fast‑disappearing Tibetan culture, a traditional lifestyle little changed across the centuries, and photograph it in‑depth right in the thick of it.
In the summer of 2019 I will accompany a maximum of 10 participants on this photographic journey to a part of the world that few people will ever get to witness. At an average altitude of 3,000-4,500 meters (10,000 – 15,000 feet), with passes exceeding 5000 meters (16,500’), this is a tour for those who savour adventure.
There are photographic opportunities aplenty, and we will take our time to explore these, so please, only serious photographers should contemplate joining this tour. I also will be offering shooting advice based on my more than 25 years as a professional photographer. You will certainly return a much better photographer than when you left home.
