Guatemala Travel Photography Trip 

Ten Days

Date- April 10- April 20, 2019

Photography - Storytelling - Spreading Goodwill

All Levels

Physically its easy (1-3)If you want more action there are options to add on such as a volcano climb, canoeing, bird watching and more.

If you aren't sure about the physical level call to talk. We make this work for everyone. 

Our travel photography trips are guided by (me)Sherrlyn Borkgren. They say that I'm an accomplished photojournalist and storyteller. We travel as we would for a photography assignment.

Step across the threshold into ancient and modern-day Mayan culture and traditions. We begin our journey in the UNESCO Cultural Heritage town, Antigua.

Photographing people and places in Antigua Guatemala and spend sometime lending a hand to others. 

When we arrive to magnificent Lago Atitlán we'll boat across the lake to our quaint and lovely Mayan owned hotel on the shores of the lake. It might be the most gorgeous mystical lake in the world.

You'll have the option to climb a volcano, paddle across the lake in a canoe or simply meander around the town with your camera. There is so much to photograph you'll want to bring plenty of flashcards.

We will boat to nearby villages to learn about natural dyes, backstrap weaving, locally grown coffee and visit local Mayan painters.

Sherrlyn Borkgren tells stories through the camera and video 

From the small and simple to the large and challenging I thrive on bringing a wide spectrum of visions to life. Let's focus on the story you want to tell. 


  • I listen carefully to what you want
  • Help you with project concept development
  • send a dependable and fair cost estimate
  • your ideas get done on time
  • work well with teams
  • ready to talk when you are. 

I work with budgets and I'm flexible on projects. Every business has a story let me help you find yours. 

Are you looking for a simple headshot or do you have a major project. Let's talk.

You've got only seconds to represent yourself so if it isn't excellent it's not good enough.

Customer Service philosophy:

People are a priority. 
I meet deadlines, deliver your message, create a unique dynamic image of you and tell your story with images and (or) words. 

Whether it be a business portrait, a family portrait, a boudoir fashion shoot, or NEWS you will always get my best.
I understand the "business”—budgets, deadlines, contracts, logistics and return on investment. I can promise that if I cannot be passionate about the shoot I won't accept the job. 

Stories are about People, Places and Things. Verbs are our friends. 
Every one, every event has a story when you look for it.

If it isn't named here just ask. We ran out of room to make long lists. 

 Coming from a news background, there is nothing that I cannot do with a camera. Before any photo session, we will have a consultation to clarify exact details about what you want and make sure that I am the right photographer for you.
