Tree climbing is like scuba diving, only the other way round.
To me science and photography are part of a big adventure. So when I first read the book of Donald R. Perry „Life above the jungle floor“ I was immediately fascinated. Here you can explore parts of the rainforest, which are rarely visited by humans. Here you can combine scientific or artistic intellectual work with the challenge for the body and psyche. You take data and images. You analyse and document…But you also feel the realm high above the ground. While you climb a huge tree you feel the gravity, the height, the changing microclimate along the vertical axis. The difference between knowing from reading and knowing from own experiences becomes too obvious.
As an experienced rainforest biologist and photographer I offer:
-Field assistance related to research and/or photography/film making in forest canopies.
-A basic tree climbing course so you can do your work in the forest canopy safely and efficiently.
