“Sergio was instrumental, in fact essential, in helping me document the Atacama Desert in Chile and Bolivia for National Geographic Magazine. This was one of the most logistically difficult places I’ve ever had to work, yet somehow Sergio made each day pass seamlessly. We made some amazing pictures together.”

Note from Sergio: I worked with Joel for close to three months (one for prep, and 2 month-long trips) on the Atacama story for Nat Geo, then I spent one month with the writer Priit Vesilind when he went there to write the story and I spent three weeks on my own scouting and prepping for Joel’s arrival. It’s hard to believe I had so much fun eating sand for so long.

Hi Sergio, Thank you very much for this and the other emails with suggestions as to what I should undertake next – photography-wise. Yes, it was a great trip and I got a lot out of it – it will take some time to put what I learned into practice so I am not rushing out to undertake anything dramatic – yet! There are a few excellent images from the trip and will be entering them into some of the upcoming competitions. I certainly will make sure people know about what is available in Bolivia. There are several people I know for whom the appeal would be that it is somewhat off the beaten track. It would be great if you could make it to Toronto sometime. I mentioned to my wife that one conclusion from the trip was that I had obviously become confused by all the conflicting photography information I picked up from the Camera Club. Her response “J,B. I’ve been telling you that for years!”

Note from Sergio: The last line was about me, Sergio, correcting a lot of misunderstood or plainly incorrect photographic information that spreads among people, kinda like a virus in kindergarten, so that Brian could actually understand what is fact and what is fiction. Brian lives in Toronto, but lived for many years in La Paz, Bolivia helping to design some of the roads into the Amazon, which we visited on this trip!

“Sergio, I again want to say thanks for the terrific photo lessons for Diane and myself. You are a patient and gifted teacher, and made the complex understandable. You can quote me on that. It will make Christmas shopping far easier for a few years, if a bit more expensive. Good luck with you endeavors.”

Note from Sergio: John and Diane are really keen photographers and I knew they really wanted to make better pictures while on the trip. I made sure we began with photography 101 and moved up quickly. They were shooting jpg in automatic modes at the beginning, but after the trip, they were shooting RAW format, setting the shutter-speed and aperture manually and really had improved on the framing and quality of their photos. I am hopeful they will be on top of their game very soon!

Hi Serge, Thanks for the great trip. I think everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. I was super happy that you had so much patience and spent so much time with the photogs and gave them a great education. I learned a lot and I’ve been doing this for years. I’m downloading as I have time here cause it’s d**n busy coming home to lots of mail etc. I also ordered Light Room yesterday. Thanks amigo!

Note from Sergio: Steve lives in MN and is a pretty darn good photographer in his own right.
