Phase One Complete

After three months in the field we have a photo archive of thousands of images, a diverse collection of sound recordings, video footage, and an extensive geographic database of the future Patagonia National Park. We are thrilled that we were able to leave the park administration with a well-constructed geographic database that they can build on and use in the future. We have had an incredible experience exploring this wild landscape, meeting everyone working to create the park, and developing our skills as visual storytellers. After three months we’re happy to put the tent away and sleep in beds again!

In the next phase of the project we will combine our multimedia content and geographic content to produce a print map and an interactive map of the park. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be doing the map production from Conservación Patagónica’s office in Sausalito, California! We’ll be making the drive out to the Bay Area in about two weeks. Throughout our production phase, we will be blogging to document our process. Stay tuned!

  1. hey Marty and Ross, welcome home! Thanks for all the updates and photos. While we were actually there with you for part of your visit to Patagonia, we think your updates helped everyone “be there” with you!

  2. What wonderful photographs! I am glad we shared a teeny part of this experience so we have a clue what you’re talking about!

  3. Congratulations on a fantastic trip. What memories you are building. I enjoy your pictures. Maybe sometime you could put on a program for Friendship Village. You’ll have trouble whittling it down to one hour though.. Love, Grandma
