Join me to photograph the wildlife and wild places of this amazing country in Central America. We will be touring the region just north of the capital San Jose to concentrate on the rainforest and cloud forest environments that give Costa Rica such a rich biodiversity.
We will photograph a whole variety of spectacular subjects including; toucans, hummingbirds, frogs, snakes, insects and landscapes. We will spend two days using multi-flash set-ups to photograph several species of hummingbirds at two different locations. We'll have access to a location where it's possible to photograph stunning and endangered scarlet and great-green macaws in the wild. We will spend some time photographing captive native reptiles and amphibians in natural set-ups. In the early morning and evenings we'll have the chance to explore some of the rainforest trails on foot to search for frogs, flowers, fungi, insects and landscapes. This will be a fantastic opportunity to photograph a diverse range of rainforest wildlife and landscapes!
I will be your photographic tutor during this trip and we will have the services of local photographer Paulo Valerio, who will be our guide. Paulo is a talented photographer who has an excellent knowledge of Costa Rica’s wildlife. The itinerary is arranged by Foto Verde Tours, who specialise in photographic trips in Costa Rica.
This trip is limited to only five participants so, with only four fellow photographers, you will all be assured a chance to make the most of each location. I will offer advice on an individual basis as required by each participant. Please bear in mind that this will be quite an intensive photography workshop where we will try to fit in as much as possible.
There is a single room supplement of £400 on this workshop.
