Raw Rainforest Photography Tours does not require participants to bring expensive photographic equipment such as the fast super-telephoto lenses (300mm f/2.8, 500mm f/4), however just about anything on the market is available for rent. If you are located in a major metropolitan center, look under “Photographic rentals” in your local phone book, visit a professional camera dealer or consult a commercial photographer in your area. Both Lensrentals.com and Borrowlenses.com will rent specialized photographic gear and have them delivered to your door. Make sure you put in some practice time with any new equipment before your trip. You need to be ready if Giant river otters suddenly surface in front of you!
Feel free to contact us with any questions. Just to recap, here is a list of gear to consider. Participants will be provided with a comprehensive checklist well in advance of their travel. Several of these items are featured in the links section as well.
