Join acclaimed wildlife photographer Nick Garbutt on a photographic journey through one of the most biologically diverse areas on earth – Manu Biosphere Reserve in the Peruvian Amazon.
Manu National Park consists of several very different habitats and ecological zones, which are undoubtedly major factors in contributing to the extraordinary diversity to be found here. As such, Manu is the perfect place to gain new photographic skills with expert tuition from Nick Garbutt, whilst visiting several principle areas of greatest species richness. Our overland route takes us from highland Andean cloud forest to lowland Amazonian terra firma rainforest.
Tropical rainforests are the greatest expressions of life on the planet and offer a wonderful array of species to look for, but they are also amongst the most challenging places to take photos successfully. These challenges range from the fundamental issue of finding subjects, and basics like keeping equipment dry and functional, to more technical issues like illuminating subjects appropriately and gaining correct exposures to produce photos with impact.
