The Light Collective members Ignacio Palacios and Ricardo Da Cunha are teaming up to run a photography tour in Mongolia in late Sept 2018.
Mongolia has amazing landscapes and a nomadic culture offering a stunning array of photographic opportunities. Travel through the vast steppe to capture images of its horses, traditional ger camps, and camel-herding families. Catch the towering dunes of the Gobi at sunrise and the brilliant Flaming Cliffs at sunset, and spend an amazing time photographing the Golden Eagle Festival, one of Mongolia’s most celebrated festivals.

• Capture portraits of Mongolian throat singers, camel herders, and traditional nomad families. Learn about their age-old culture.
• Stay in a ger camp in the Gobi Desert, and set off on photo hikes amid nearby gorges and dunes.
