Our Project for 2 weeks – 07.20.07
Since I have some unforeseen time, thought I’d post an image of our project subject. The Collared Pika lives at the top of the world, seeking cool temps and snow cover to survive. With changes in the climate, they are “adapting” in some very unique ways in an attempt to survive as a species. Understanding these takes real hardcore science with tons of field and lab work. There’s no way I can explain it all in a blog posting, but you can at least see #16, the pika in the photo. He kept Jake & I very challenged as he went about his daily life. I should add, these guys are about the size of your palm and their southern cousin, the American Pika, are also known as Rock Rabbits.
I’ve had a number of emails asking me how I got involved in this project, prepared for and worked in the field with digital and cameback with the images. This is exactly why we started Base Camp! These kind of projects are out there looking for talented and qualified photographers. There’s no pay involved as far as receiving a paycheck, the rewards though far exceed anything you can imagine. If this type of opportunity and challenge tweak your imagination, give us a call!
I hear our names, we might have our seats on stand-by…hopefully we’re out of here!
