Lucia Coronel

Adventure photographer, fond of sport climbing and lover of outdoor activities. His passions were born as a result of traveling throughout the country, knowing the corners of each province. The photography of landscapes and nature were part of his beginnings, to later venture into astrophotography and observation of the sky. The combination of both branches led to the less convenient and touristy modality of their trips, thus discovering their other passion and profession, being an adventure tourism guide. From there, he began to develop his independence in the mountains and wild areas, as well as trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and climbing activities. All these together managed to transform his life and his vision through the lens, into something more specialized such as adventure sports photography. The love of the mountains, the performance of outdoor activities and portraying the dangers, fears and moments of superiority through which each athlete or fan passes, govern their lifestyle. Today he is traveling around Patagonia, horseback riding amidst glacial valleys located in the Santa Cruz area.
