The Amazon Photography project in the Peruvian Amazon uses technology as a means to try and answer difficult research questions, while assisting conservation teams with species identification and projecting their work to a broader audience. It is also an opportunity for photography enthusiast to enhance their portfolio.
“While out with the Photography programme, I genuinely had some of the best experiences of my life. During my time on the programme, we saw some fantastic flora and fauna ranging from reptiles and amphibians to Harpy eagles and even a Jaguar.”

Have a peek at what interns take part in when joining the Photography programme in the Amazon. This video shows the use of a white box to photograph various wildlife species and capture their distinct features. The purpose is to collect the data of each species for research and the creation of a tropical wildlife species app.
As an intern you will get to immerse yourself in true Amazon wilderness alongside a professional wildlife photographer. You will get to witness varied tropical wildlife while enhancing your photography and video skills.
The location of the work that takes place varies within the rainforest, but interns will be immersed in some of the most pristine and remote locations to witness and capture the greatly varied wildlife that call it home.
