There is hardly any other place in the world that gives you such a tickling feeling of adventure when you hear the name as Patagonia. It is a big piece of land and this was my third trip there. I was lucky to be hired by Ericsson to take river rafting photos, the river being a metaphor for "IP flow".
We took off from Stockholm in December, flying via Frankfurt, Sao Paolo, Santiago and Puerto Montt in southern Chile. After an overnight we continued south with a small plane to Futaleufu where we were met by Expediciones Chile, who where to be our hosts during five days of filming. We drove for about an hour every morning to the put in place on Futaleufu river. The shooting list was pretty full and we spent long days ticking off one photo at a time. The weather was incredibly good for Patagonia with sunshine and around 20 C every day. The crew helping us was bossed by Jim Coffey, a very experienced Canadian river guide, helping out in absence of Chris Spelios, founder of Expediciones Chile. Apart from minor drawbacks such as a cracked rib and drowned camera equipment (EOS 1Ds and video) we got some fantastic footage and photos. This is one of the most beautiful places I have visited and the pisco sour we had every afternoon was unforgettable.
