Fall 2018

On any given photo safari, Lindholm caters to a mix of skill levels:

beginner, skilled amateur, professional, and often spouses who

aren’t photographers at all. “We’re living a boom in photography and

photo-tourism,” says the Argentinian, who leads at least eight photo

safaris a year to places like Machu Picchu in Peru, the Jaguar-rich

Pantanal wetlands of Brazil, Chile’s Patagonia, the Galapagos Islands,

Alaskan bear country and the Tanzanian Serengeti.

He’s right; according to The Adventure Travel Trade Association’s

latest travel trends survey, demand for photography-themed

travel is on the rise. Photo tours are an immersive way to discover

new landscapes – featuring detailed explanations of culture and

history, too.

And where photography-based tourism flourishes, destructive local

practices like poaching, over-fishing or careless land redevelopment are

disincentivized. Thus, Lindholm adds, photo safaris have a role to play in

encouraging the protection of pristine landscapes, flora and fauna.

Departing at dawn from Plaza 9 De Julio, the broad main square of

Salta, we had watched the city’s well-preserved 16th-century colonial

architecture quickly recede into the vastness of Salta province. The

region has a variety of ecosystems (from high-altitude deserts to

humid jungles) and nature preserves. Further along the highway, we

pause to photograph a cavernous opening in the sandstone that locals

have nicknamed The Amphitheatre; it’s one of several distinctive rock

formations that attract tourists to Quebrada de las Conchas.

The world’s highest wine-growing region is situated at the southern

end of Salta province, which reaches up to 2,000 metres of elevation.

After lunch at one of the 35 area wineries, Lindholm takes us next into

downtown Cafayate, a typical wine-route town not unlike Sonoma, to

practice street photography in the heat of early afternoon. We step

out into yet another leafy public square, where townspeople and

tourists are relaxing and drinking espresso and mate (a strong energy

tea) under shaded outdoor patios. Shops are selling ponchos and

llama’s wool, quince and sweet potato, and there’s a brightly-painted

Baroque church at the heart of it all.

The bus reaches a hiking area called La Yesera just as afternoon

shadows are deepening the colours of scorched canyons that

stretch to the horizon line. Earth’s primordial underbelly. Capturing

the best light is everything to a photographer – and Lindholm has

clearly planned the day to bring us right here, right now. He’s already

scouting locations for us to shoot from, DSLR in hand. It’s such a

well-practiced routine yet brings such a different result every time:

that’s the magic of it. “Of all the landscapes I’ve seen,” he explains,

“this one is my place in the world.”

PHOTO TIPS FOR TRAVELLERS

4

Frame subjects off-centre, aiming lower than the

eyes and upward to capture body proportions

4

Where a person is looking, leave more empty

framing for a sense of anticipation and

movement.

4

Plan to be on location at sunrise and sunset to

capture the best light of the day

4

Place the horizon line in the upper or lower third

of a photo, not the middle.
