Project: Experience Borneo

Deep in Samboja Lodge lies a beautifully located eco-lodge within an orangutan sanctuary, mainly only utilised by volunteers. There was an opportunity to offer more while spreading awareness of the importance of orangutan conservation by Borneo Orangutan Survival. Within a passionate team, ideas and hard work has now turned to reality where I’ve had the pleasure of coordinating, marketing and photographing unique retreats, all while supporting orangutans under their care 100%.

I’ve documented a wide spectrum of activities, from capturing hikes and tourist experiences to showcasing merchandise, on-location staff, and the incredible orangutans themselves. As a result, my photography can be seen across much of BOS’s media, their partners and beyond.

Experience it for yourself

A once in a lifetime experience in the heart of an Orangutan Sanctuary.

Stay in an ecolodge within the grounds of an orangutan sanctuary in Borneo – Witness orangutans, probiscis monkeys, sun bears, full organic meals, yoga and so much more. And better still, all proceeds go to the charity’s life saving work.

It doesn't stop there

Over the many years, I’ve created extensive design and marketing for the benefit of the orangutans and the rainforest. Have a look at the creativity proudly produced for Borneo Orangutan Survival.
