I arrived at South B&B in El Calafate and was met at the front desk by both Javier and Andrea. They are so experienced in people coming through their doors needing advice on how to get the best out of their trip that, by the time I made it to my room, I knew exactly what trip I was going to do and had it all booked up. Being a photographer, I was also keen on being at the Pepito Moreno glacier when the light was at its best, so they made a couple of calls and had arranged for me to have the choice of staying on longer at the glacier and returning with a later group. Easy!

The rapport between the two of them is a typical brother and sister relationship, they never agree on anything and take great pleasure in approaching a situation from different points of view. We were all laughing like crazy within a few minutes of meeting because of this. They have a wicked sense of humour. Before leaving, I took a few portraits of them. I think you’ll be able to see from the series here that they have a wonderful approach to life.

All shots are handheld. The shot of the green room is from a single image processed in Capture One, and I was able to bring in a bit of detail from the window and lighten the shadows inside by using a combination of the highlight and shadow sliders. If I’d used Photoshop, I would probably have processed two separate exposures and combined the two images. No need for that here!
