01 Introduction

I received an invitation to travel to the Amazon rainforest in the southern hemisphere to document the experiences of a mission trip, the three year project yielded 3 short documentaries and 1000s of photographs. With inpiration from Ron Fricke's 1992 masterpiece BARAKA, I ventured into the task of capturing images in the jungle.

  • Limited access to electricity and internet
  • Extreme humidity and rainfall
  • Aerial drone usage
  • Footage preservation and backup

Using DSLR, mirrorless cameras and many gopros, with a lot of care and weatherproofing I was able to capture all the images presented here and in the video links.
