Photographer with professional equipment on a Photo Safari in Patagonia

Here at Quasar, we know that as a traveling photographer, you have special requirements. There’s little point in visiting an amazing overlook in the middle of the day when the photographic payoff is just before sunset as the long light of the day converts the Torres del Paine into the glowing Towers of Indigo. After all, that is their literal translation.

If you’ve been the person on an outdoor photo workshop whose questions haven’t been answered because the guide has devoted most of their time to instructing the least experienced group member only to be moved on just before you feel that the light is about to shift in your favor, you’ll know the frustration of a wasted photo safari… but not with a Patagonia photo safari with Quasar Expeditions!

As a photographer, you need your daily schedule to put you in the best spots at either end of the day so that you can make the most of the perfect lighting conditions. It’s also important that you’re not rushed and don’t have to compete with others while you wait to capture the ideal shot of Patagonia animals & wildlife you’ve dreamed of seeing.

Our Patagonia Overland Safari’s literally put you in the drivers seat, both at the wheel and behind the lens. By choosing a Patagonia photo safari private tour with your very own luxury 4x4 all-terrain vehicle, you’re in control so that you can make the very most of your very special Patagonian photography experience. Want to get up before dawn to scope out the perfect overlook before the sun casts it’s spell across the land? No problem. With Quasar, you’ll travel with just your family and friends so that you won’t have to wait for the rest of the group to finish breakfast, gather their equipment and go back for the jacket they forgot. And, if you’re lucky enough to come across a puma, don’t worry about the rest of your group making noise and spooking the big cat. Simply stay and click away for as long as you want or track it without having to convince the rest of your group beforehand.

Whether you’ve chosen guided or self-guided options, flexibility is at the very core of our Patagonia photo safari. In fact, some of our top guides also happen to be gifted photographers and love sharing their knowledge of the best scenic overlooks, which times are ideal for lighting or how to find elusive wildlife such as Condors, Guanacos and Rhea (the South American ostrich). However, if you’re an experienced photographer and just want the space to explore on your own, choose one of our self-guided options so that you can simply follow your nose off the beaten path in the true nature of adventure.
