 Guatemala Photography Travel Workshop, This is exclusively for those who have paid the deposit for the Guatemala October trip 2018. 


Trip is October 30 to November 8, 2018. Arrival date is October 30 in Guatemala City. We will post pick-up hours. Photograph and celebrate the (All Saint's Day) in Guatemala. It's spectacular to witness kites as large as a three-story building in all their glowing glory pulled off in attempts to communicate with those who have passed on.   
The 2nd part of the trip we visit the boy's youth ranch in the mountains. A place you can share your laughter and skills with the kids. The backdrop of these mountains is also spectacular. It's a God based ministry where these boys are given the opportunity to thrive, to attend school and have a forever home. You are welcome to bring gifts to the boys but most of all they look forward to knowing you.  

Cost includes all hotels and transportation within the country, One lovely home lunch at a Guatemalan home in Antigua and four breakfasts at our sweet hotel. By eating at a family home we contribute to the Guatemalan culture and help keep a family's children in school. 

Price does not include your airfare, travel insurance, tips, personal items or meals other than mentioned above. 
. You might get a bit dirty, you might get wet, and you just might have the time of your life.

Emotional flexibility is just as important as physical ability. The longest walk is to the kite festival about 3/4 of a mile. (Other times there are often small golf carts ($1.) to jump into if your walking is limited.) It's not physically difficult, but you will be slinging your bag, and there is walking on cobblestone and uneven paths. 
Most any camera will work as long as the person behind it is motivated. We will have optional assignments and critiques embedded into some of the days. If you have a partner who is not photographing they can go with you or choose other options. No problema!
