Diverse Wildlife

The wildlife diversity of Costa Rica is well-known and stunning to behold. In a very small country (about the size of West Virginia) Costa Rica contains over 500,000 species of plant and animal. On my guided photo tour we’ll see and photograph as many species of birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals as possible. We’ll enlist the help of local guides and wildlife experts who will either bring us to the wildlife or bring the wildlife to us. This is truly an amazing place to be a wildlife photographer. All skill levels welcome.

Immersive Experience

The photo opportunities we’ll have in Costa Rica will be unparalleled! We’ll stay in 4 diverse and wonderful eco-lodges, each located in the thick of the wildlife action. All participants will learn the best techniques for photographing colorful birds of all sizes, unique mammals, reptiles, endemic frogs, insects, flowers and more.
