Tom Parrott

Product and Marketing

Tom has been working at Journey Latin America on and off for well over a decade, starting out at the tender age of 14 by helping in the post room. As the son of company co-founder Chris, Tom has had the chance to go on some amazing holidays over the years and witness incredible sights – such as Rio’s Copacabana beach at New Year, filled with endless crowds of revellers. He loves the atmosphere and sense of community to be found in Latin America, and has a particular fondness for Mexico, Venezuela and the Guianas.

Tom has a degree in Fine Art and applies his creative skills to maintaining the vast image bank which has built up over the company’s more than thirty years, handling the progression from slides and film to high quality digital images. Tom also loves taking his own photographs and is a talented illustrator.

My favourite place in Latin America

I'll never forget exploring the abandoned prison complex on Isle San Joseph in French Guiana, taking photographs of the roots of trees that had grown along the corridors as the coconut trees burst through the iron bars and crumbled walls. Voyaging to the foot of the Angel Falls in Venezuela was another once-in-a-lifetime experience.

My top tips


The best light is always as the sun rises and if you're lying in bed asleep you'll miss out on the perfect time for photography. Evening light, just before sunset, offers another golden window of opportunity, but you have to be quick: you'll only have around 30 minutes to shoot those closing rays of sunlight.
