We have woven together a set of photographic opportunities and Costa Rican experiences that will put you in the right place at the right time to produce great images - and give you a set of personal experiences guaranteed to make you fall in love with this beautiful country. You will come home with a great collection of images and a better understanding of the diverse ecosystems and fascinating culture of Costa Rica.

 

Our explorations will concentrate on rainforests, cloud forests, and coastal mangrove forests of the Pacific side of Costa Rica. We'll visit Monteverde and some of the other "big name" parks - but we'll also explore some of the less traveled spots in Costa Rica in our quest for exciting images.

We will explore rainforests and cloud forests on amazing ground trails, from stable suspended walkways high in the canopy, and (optionally) by zipline.

We'll find beautiful birds (Costa Rica has over twice the species of continental United States), frogs, butterflies, leaf cutter ants, sloths and monkeys.

We'll photograph the exciting designs and patterns of forests from both the ground and the canopy! And we'll create artful images of waterfalls surrounded by beautiful forests.

We'll explore the coastal mangrove forests, creating images of exciting birds, monkeys, crabs, caimans, iguanas and crocodiles. The patterns of the coastal mangrove forests, themselves, are conducive to great art.

Costa Rica is where some of the best coffee in the world is grown. During our December adventure, they will just be beginning the coffee harvest, picking plump red coffee berries and hauling them to small mills where they are prepared for shipment around the world. We'll get to pick berries, photograph and learn the process, and sample some of the best coffee you can imagine. Yes, you can bring some home!
Both the coast and the mountains will present exciting landscape photography opportunities. We will position ourselves to explore these exciting landscapes in exciting light!

We have designed this adventure for a small group (5-10 photographers). We've picked lodgings that put us close to the action - you should be able to step out your door in each place and capture great images!

This is a great adventure for your non-photographer traveling partner to enjoy. We'll have wonderful experiences they can "get into" - and the photography pace of this adventure won't cause them to grit their teeth!

  • Participants must be in good health and capable of walking forest trails with camera equipment
  • Cost includes all lodging, guided outings, transportation, entrance fees, service charges and preparation materials
  • Cost includes many meals
  • Adventure begins and ends at San Jose Airport in Costa Rica (SJO)

Build the exposures that support the designs you intend in your images! Meet us in Portland, Maine for an intense classroom workshop that will give you the skills to take control of your camera. We make it simple to move to manual exposure - and give you the tools to understand what you are doing and how to do it. Most people we teach never look back because it is easier than letting the wizards in the camera make your creative decisions for you. Then, we'll spend some time looking at new technologies - how to adjust to them and how to choose which to own.
