Summit Peru 2018 Manu & the amazon rainforest

The first part of our Peru workshop took us high into the cloud forest of the Cosñipata Valley, one of the most biodiverse places on the planet. Here we spent our days photographing the amazing insects, birds, and waterfalls of this amazing ecosystem.

From Cosñipata we traveled by boat deep far along the Madre de Dios River towards Manu National Park where we spent the second portion of the workshop. A drastic change from the high altitudes of the Andes, the river basin was hot, humid, and full different types of extraordinary wildlife. From hundreds of macaws, giant river otters, capybara, and caiman we filled our memory cards every single day.
