MOONLIT HOUSE & BASECAMP NIGHTSCAPE Las Pampas, Chubut, Argentina | Temple Camp, Chile
These are a few night images I captures during my 3-week trip to South America. The first is a a still frame of a night time-lapse captured at our basecamp, the “Casa del Limado”, in the Andes Mountains, Argentina. I spent 3 weeks living editing, drinking mate, lighting the fire in the crisp morning, making instant coffee and eating backcountry pizza. It’s a place I look forward to visiting each year each year. The second image is of the “Temple Camp” on the banks of the Rio Palena flowing out of the Andes in Chile. It was an incredible camp on a very productive and scenic river.
HEADED TO THE SOUTHERN HEMI Las Pampas, Chubut, Argentina
I had time to drop bags, wash clothes, download cards, charge batteries and repack. I’m headed south to Argentina and over the boarder to Chile. I’m looking forward to linking up with with my old friends and the gauchos. After every return trip I always wish I had more time to experience and explore this region. I feel fortunate that I am able to see just a small glimpse of it all.
This venture has many moving parts including the rivers, lakes, camp, photography and cinematography. Imagery and motion captured here will be used for various outlets including the lodge and for an upcoming work in progress. A conservation film with Travis Lowe titled Finding Fontinalis, showing in 2016. Stay tuned.
CATALOG + AD + DIGITAL + WEBSITE Las Pampas, Chubut, Argentina
I’m very excited to see an image in the new 2015 Patagonia catalog. This image was taken in one of my favorite places, Las Pampas in rural Argentina. We had hiked in a remote trail down to the river. It started out a bluebird day and by the day’s end it was raining sideways. We stumbled on the old gauchos working the cattle. They wanted to chat, so we did, in the pouring rain. Here Oggy talks fishing with the locals. What an adventure!
On this particular trip the crew consisted of Patagonia’s Bart Bonime and Dexter Levandoski. An exploratory trip that has morphed into an upcoming conservation film with Travis Lowe titled Finding Fontinalis, showing in 2016. This was also the trip that sparked the idea on establishing the upcoming creation of “Fundacion Truchas Patagonia”. Stay tuned for more exciting stuff coming out of the Patagonia Fish camp.
