I was sad when my good friend, Martin Herrera Soler, moved to Uruguay, but I was excited to learn that he has helped create Latitude 34 South. Latitude 34 South is “a world-class endeavor specialized in travel workshops in the South of South America. We don’t city-tour: we create truly cultural experiences. Because we are local, we know the culture and its people, and, our international travel and business experience gives us a global ‘touch’. We will only take you to places we really know, and in general, these are little known and lost in time places, with a rich story behind them.
Additionally, we follow a unique approach to tutoring: by working with an overarching theme for the workshop and offering multi-level tutoring we enable every participant to improve his|her skills and leave the workshop with a finished product, usually a digital story or a photographic book.”
Who are we?
We are a team of multi-discipline visual artists professionals eager to share our region and connect with the international photographic community. We do this because we love what is here to photograph and we want to share it with you. We do this in a sustainable and responsible way. We take care of the environment, we are responsible with the people and the communities in which we photograph, and we always look for ways to give back (financially and otherwise) to make sure we can preserve this wonderful place where we live in.
This endeavor is a collaborative effort of Martin Herrera Soler, Diego Vidart and Clara Hori. Since one of our goals is to engage the international photo community, we love to bring aboard guest instructors from all places and walks of life.
