Sunrise with brumes over the forest
There are programs for both professional and amateur nature photographers. A private guide accompanies the guests to maximize the chances of being able to capture the best pictures of this experience. It is important to take into consideration the fact that photography in the Amazon is not an easy task due to distance from the subject and the way the birds and animals move. Nevertheless, the results can be very rewarding, especially when you are able to get shots of iconic and endemic species.
