My background

I have been working in tourism since 2003 as entertainment manager in high end resorts across 15 countries, tour leader, trip advisor, webmaster, production manager, and digital marketing manager for travel agencies. Highly attracted by nature and local cultures, I decided to make South America my home to work as professional photographer

Trip South America

How I learned photography

I started photography during my first big trip to Latin America. At the beginning I was just shooting by instinct. Then as my passion grew, I started to read and watch as many videos as possible on all subjects and styles for years. During this time, I was lucky enough to be able to travel constantly and practice in the field.

How I became a full time travel photograher

I think that what helped me the most to level up my photography is my persistence. When I set a goal, I will study like relentless until I master the subject.
This obsession for detail & quality, opened me many doors and allowed me to get back to the field and work as a full time photographer.
I think that I learned a few things along the way, and that’s what I want to share with you today.

What other say

From the very first communication Tristan was responsive and helpful, receptive to tailor making a travel and photographic experience that was exactly what I was looking for. As a passionate photographer himself, I knew I was speaking with a like-minded soul who understands the specific needs and wants of a fellow photographer.
The tour itself was brilliant. As well as being a capable and professional tour organizer, Tristan is great company and an interesting travel companion.
The special relationship he has built up over the years with the Kogi people and local guides enabled a very special opportunity to visit and photograph them, both culturally and photographically interesting, and a rare, much appreciated opportunity.
Combine this with Tristan’s ability to speak several languages fluently including the local one, and you’re onto a winner!
