Photography consultant Jaime Livingood send me over to this excellent photo essay by photographer Alexandre Buisse. The essay details his time photographing the annnual Patagonian Expedition Race. A great story, with great photos.. a model for my own work.
Because the course is over 500km, often without roads, and because this year there was no helicopter, it was very difficult to stay ahead of the teams. This lead to the biggest challenge of all: managing to run several of the stages along with the racers. In my case, it meant covering about 100 km of bushwacking and bog swamps in 32 hours, all with my survival and camera equipment.
