Discover the land of breathtaking Maya Guatemala. You'll experience our expedition as a photographer, an authentic traveler, never as a tourist. You'll capture fascinating photos and stories to share back home.If there is a dream destination for photographers this has to be it. It's a magical land. Mayan Indians still practice sacred ceremonies and wear clothing designed hundreds of years ago. Volcanos tower over the lake as Mayan men paddle out in hand-carved canoes to catch the early morning meal. Get your camera ready for the feast of "All Saint's Day" in Guatemala.
This grand colorful feast for your eyes will saturate you. Young teams of Mayan men attempt to fly beautifully designed kites they have worked on all year. Some are as large as a three-story-house.
Our first base in the UNESCO World Heritage town Antigua provides a new photo opportunity around each cobblestoned corner. In the highlands you'll not only photograph one of the most sensuous serene lakes but will enjoy a fun boat ride to the other side.
We have been invited to spend a night at a Youth Ranch for discarded boys and lend a hand. It's a chance to promote goodwill and give of ourselves.
I’ve included a brief itinerary. If you want a more detailed view of the trip you'll find it on the home page or you can shoot me an email.
