Jorg Badura was recently in Chile for two weeks on an assignment that was in practice and spirit an adventure. From camping in a tent on a boat and hiking for three days in the backcountry to horseback riding in Estancia Mercedes, traveling by Zodiac up the Serrano River, admiring the iceberg-dotted Glacier Geike Lake by the light of the supermoon, and kayaking in Lago Azul, Jorg fully embraced the natural beauty of Chile, with which he became enamored eight years ago.
“I fell in love with Puerto Natales back in 2004,” he explains. “It’s the gateway to the some of the most beautiful national parks known. The elements of nature are rough and so beautiful that it touches me deep in my core.”
Jorg is in the process of producing an edit of the many photographs he made on the trip for use by Chile’s tourism board. But he is reserving a collection of photos for additional commercial use—he’ll be reaching out to magazines in the near future, for example. (Interested photo editors can contact him directly at email@example.com.)
In the meantime, here’s a preview. See and read more on Jorg’s blog at “Chile Adventure Dispatches.”
