Our leaders consist of professional photographers, wildlife biologists, and Peru rainforest logistics experts. As a team they offer up more than 20 years of experience in Peru and other tropical developing countries, during which they have amassed a broad and deep knowledge of wild nature and local cultures, photographic techniques that work in challenging environments, the networks and skills to get diverse teams of people in and out of wilderness areas quickly and safely, and an ability to do all this while respecting the integrity of wildlife and landscapes.
