With over 300 waterfalls, the Chapada is part of the Cerrado biome, housing the country's most breathtaking waterfalls and welcoming every taste. Some cascades spill down 328ft (100m), forming pools of crystalline Saphire and Emerald hues that call your name at every corner. And, yes, you can indulge yourself in swimming in the mesmerizing crystal clear pools.

The esoteric vibe of the Chapada dos Veadeiros intensifies when you step on the Vale da Lua (Moon Valley), one of the most exquisite and cinematic sites. The São Miguel river has been caressing those rock formations for over 600 million years, sculpting lunar-like craters on its surface.

The 235,970 ha (583,095 acres)Chapada dos Veadeiros is blessed by Mother Nature. The peaceful and mystical feel that inebriates your being as you inhale its beauty emanates from the fact that the area rests on the oldest quartz plate on the planet. According to NASA, it is one of Earth's brightest natural points seen from space!


Mother Nature took her time on this one. The infinite photography opportunities are hard to describe. We can spend a month in the Chapada dos Veadeiros and only cover one-third of the area. Besides the hundreds of waterfalls, you'll experience a never-ending ocean of vegetation, mountains, lakes, rivers, and diverse fauna and flora. The region shelters several different orchid species and wildlife, such as giant armadillos, pampa deer, jaguars, guará wolves, capybaras, and red-breasted toucans, to mention a few.

Learn more about the adventure that awaits you in this Photography workshop


This Aventure Photography Workshop starts and ends in Brasilia, Brazil's capital. You should plan to be there no later than the afternoon of the first workshop day for our traditional welcome dinner, and we'll bring you back on the last workshop day for our wrap-up dinner and last overnight stay.

Once you arrive at the Presidente Jucelino Kubitschek International Airport (BSB), a car will transfer you to the hotel for check-in. Brasilia is the Federal District and a paramount beacon in Brazil's town planning history. The was planned and designed with harmony and symmetry in mind. The ultra-modern result put the 11,000 ha of the city's land on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites. The distinctive town is divided into numbered sectors based on activities, such as hotels, banking, and other sectors. The Metropolitan Cathedral, the National Congress, and other exquisite landmarks are impressive icons worth your time and clicks.

We'll spend a day in Brasilia photographing the iconic city and its monuments and head early the next day towards Cavalcante. It's a three hours ride in a private air-conditioned SUV, but we'll stop for snacks and stretching.

BRASILIA  UNESCO World Heritage Site and Capital of Brazil

Cavalcante constitutes 60% of the Chapada dos Veadeiros's region and exhibits 170 cataloged waterfalls spilling into pure see-through blue and green, alluring pools. We'll be going to dive in, literally, into some of the most exquisite ones. 

The region houses a fascinating community of descendants of escaped enslaved people from the 18th and 19th centuries. The indigenous and locals have preserved the 262,000ha of the Kalunga region for the last 300 years. They have much pride in perpetuating and protecting the area, culture, and ways of life, and ONU internationally recognized them for doing so. The Ticca title awards regions that maintain, look after, and safeguard nature and people's well-being.

We'll travel to the oldest and most remote Quilombo for a humbling, life-changing experience photographing the community and learning about its customs and history. In addition, we'll impact the community by visiting a local school and formalizing our traditional donations. Because the area is very remote, we might need to leave the donations at another site for them to retrieve them.

CAVALCANTE - Center Stage of Chapada's Historic Immersion

After that, we'll ride along the Paranã river, taking our time to photograph the river, beaches, and canyons until after the sunset. Then, the long day calls for dining and rest at the new Inn. So to recuperate from the activity-heavy day, we'll stay at this Inn a few steps from a gorgeous waterfall the next day. That day, we'll do an image review session and some astrophotography.

One of the most peculiar sites we'll photograph is the Vale da Lua (Moon Valley.) The valley is known to be the oldest rock formation on Earth and hosts astonishing smooth lunar-like crystals and rock formations carved by the São Miguel river over millions of years. The persistent griding provoked the enormous cavities to explode, lending a moon-like appearance to the river-kneaded rocks.

The alien grey unwrinkled topography takes you by surprise with its hidden cascades and tunnels housing emerald water flows and natural swimming pools. The myriad of quartz on this ethereal landscape forms dazzling rainbows taking you to another planet.

In this adventure photography workshop, we'll start our days early and, sometimes, in the first hours of the day. It would be best if you planned to have your bags organized at all times, as the spread-out locations often force us to change Inns and photography places.

The Park deserves a whole day visit to allow plenty of time to trek between the highest waterfalls and several others. The tallest one has a 120m (394ft) drop. If we get lucky, we'll see the rich local fauna around the falls. The next day get ready for a treat! We'll leave early again to indulge ourselves with a balloon ride for an aerial photography opportunity. 

If you don't feel like going on the balloon ride, no problem, we'll wave at you from above... no hard feelings. For the ones who are up to the adventure, the pilot doesn't guarantee we are going over rivers and waterfalls because it depends on the weather and wind conditions that day. But he always tries! After that, we'll hit one more waterfall, and after lunch, we'll return to Brasilia for our traditional farewell dinner and last night together.

The photography sessions will combine dawn, sunset, whole light, Astro, aerial and drone opportunities. I'll be guiding everyone and making sure gets attention and instruction. We'll have editing and image review sessions as well.

During our downtime, we'll have fun swimming into the pure crystal clear waters, exploring different locations, experiencing the typical local cuisine, going on boat rides, learning the local craftsmanship and culture, impacting the communities, and changing lodgings. 

Parque Nacional Chapada dos Veadeiros 

The Chapada dos Veadeiros is famous for its mysticism and esoteric vibe. Once in a while, take your time to meditate and feel the positive energy from this ancient site and its humongous quartz bed. We'll share our experiences; this magical location can eventually better us!
