Tim was recently in the Raja Ampat Islands of Indonesia again, continuing shooting for his Birds of Paradise Project. He had a chance to shoot aerials from the front seat of pilot Max Ammer’s ultralight. Max has been a leader in the exploration and conservation of this area for many years and besides owning the premier diving destination resort in the area (check out Papua-Diving.com), he has founded the Raja Ampat Research and Conservation Center which aims to promote the study and conservation of the unparalleled biodiversity of this region.
These amazing islands are home to two unique species of Birds of Paradise. Check out the time lapse video of Tim and Max’s flight.
