WorkingAbroad Projects

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 10 people are interested

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.

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.

Technology is increasingly being used to answer biological research questions and to help overcome threats to wildlife and biodiversity conservation areas. High on the list of technology-based techniques is digital photography and videography. This Amazon Photography project in the Peruvian Amazon uses digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, GoPros, high definition camera traps, in combination with a lot of sweat and perseverance to answer difficult research questions and to assist conservation biologist teams. The project provides accurate species identification and exposes the conservation activities to a broader audience via social media outlets and the internet at large.

The photography professionals and biologists leading this project in the Peruvian Amazon have opened their doors to amateur photographers and videographers from around the world with the basic equipment and passion required to contribute in a meaningful way to this initiative.
