I recently have returned from an amazing photography trip to Bolivia. Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in South America, but has in my mind some of the best and diverse landscapes to be seen. From the jungles of Madidi to the surreal lunar landscapes of the Salar de Uyuni. Bolivia really is a photo heaven.
I recently visited the stunning island archipelago of 21 islands called Fernando de Noronha to take photos of its stunning beaches and landscapes. Fernando de Noronha is around 354 km offshore from the Brazilian coast in the Atlantic Ocean. Fernando de Noronoha’s rich waters are a very important breeding area for sharks, turtles, tunas and marine mammals. It also has a healthy population of dolphins and has abundant underwater species. For divers and snorkelers this is a paradise. Also for a photographer that would sound enough, but it also boasts absolutely stunning pristine tropical beaches, with amazing volcanic structures, which rise from the ocean floor some 4,000 m in depth. It is also a protected national park and has a restricted number of visitors each day in order to maintain this special environment.
I have just returned from a short photo trip to Ubatuba in Brazil. Ubatuba is a region in the state of Sao Paulo and a very photogenic one. It is situated on the northern coast of Sao Paulo state and is a couple of hours drive away from the massive metropolis Sao Paulo.
I recently visited the beautiful city of Ouro Preto to take photos. I can confirm that Ouro Preto is one of the most photogenic places i have ever visited. Ouro Preto is a former colonial mining town situated in the Serra do Espinhaço mountains which are in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. It was and designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Ouro Preto means black gold, it was the main location of the 18th century gold rush and Brazil’s golden age under Portuguese rule.
