Hey All
I'm heading to Peru next week on a photo expedition as well has some humanitarian stuff.

I'm seeking donations so I can purchase Children's Multivitamins for a couple of schools in Cusco. I have a lot of local donations.

If you're in, click donate. 100% of the money raised will go to Paypal for their fees and to the purchase of multivitamins.

Thanks for reading, back to the rumors!



  1. Just a heads up, when you goto Machu Picchu they will look at your gear and will freak and ask for $300 US for a photo permit. I was there last week and they looked at my 1dIII and lenses and said that I couldn’t take any of it in! Not one bit, I asked to use my film body and like my 16-35 but they said no way:( They said it was on my ticket, that “you can’t be professional or have professional equipment” and it was. Pity my hotel got the ticket for me and I didn’t get it till that day :(

    I ended up being allowed to take my Holga in but the woman was highly suspect about my medium format film……..

    Anyway, it’s an awesome place. I can’t fault them or get angry. It’s there place and they have the right to set the rules anyway they see it.

  2. I noticed that this is not the first time at all that you write about the topic. Why have you decided to touch it again?

    p.s. Year One is already on the Internet and you can watch it for free.

  3. Hi,

    I’m going to Peru in three weeks and will be taking stuff I bought to donate like clothes, toothbrushes and vitamins to a childrens shelter. I want to know if there is any fee or permit for taking new stuff in quantity?

    I will appreaciate any information.


  4. I had no problem, I brought about 50 bottles of vitamins and stuff for arts and crafts.

    However, I didn’t get searched at Lima airport. You press a button… green is go… red is search. Completely random.

    People do it all the time, I can’t see it being an issue.
