Registered for first two parts... Been to Peru once, had a blast but missed Lima... I want to go back. This is a perfect opportunity!

Is it just you coming by yourself Steven, or are you bringing family, too (there's a tourism/social stream for those that want family along without them getting bored on location)?

A quick update:
We've engaged local fair trade operators for each of the stages that are helping us put together a locally relevant itinerary, and should enable us to visit some areas that are off the beaten trail.
The Iquitos/Amazon leg of the trip is now well into planning. We'll spend 4 days/3 nights at Tahuayo Lodge, 100 miles upstream from Iquitos on the Tahuayo tributary.
Activities will include treks in pristine jungle, canopy zip line shoots, canoeing and photography/cultural exchanges with indigenous groups.An additional shoot may also be organised for some of the barges/trawlers/more colourful water transport moored along the river
There will also be the option to do jungle flyovers in a seaplane (additional cost - may also be only a 4-6 seater).
The Huaraz/Cordillera Blanca leg is also well in plan.
Current planned activities include:
Should have more soon for the Lima/Ica, and Cusco/Sacred Valley stages. Arequipa is also moving along.
Available spaces for photographers are starting to get close to tipping over to a waiting list. Plenty of room left for videographers and illustrators. Registration at least gets you first right of refusal.

All 5 stages are now being costed (with some haggling over locations and details still underway) - see the full itinerary day by day - I'll be updating details on that page as locations and activities become confirmed.
The photography streams are now full (from a registration perspective at least) so it's wait list only now, however there will also be a video stream running in parallel if people want to put their names in for that.

This sounds very interesting. Please put me on the provisional list.

Would be glad to have another Barcelonalypse veteran in the crew
You'll need to register on the Sojourn website to get on the list. I've been getting registrations from lots of different sources so that's the only true place I can maintain it.

Have set up Pinterest boards for each shooting day. They're broken into location images so people can get an idea of the locations we'll be shooting in, and the concepts (should start to see these develop in the coming week).

FYI - this has been postponed to 2014 as per original plans to allow more time to repare the itinerary and for participants to get finances together to cover costs.

I'll be going to Peru in Feb/March 2014. I will likely be putting on the Lima/Ica shoots (stage 1) with some locals at that time.
More details soon.

I just did a 3 week tour on my own and all I can say is - GO if you have the chance. Amazing photo opportunities.
