Costa Rica Photography Workshop

This all inclusive photography workshop will be based on the Caribbean Lowlands at Selva Verde Lodge in Sarapiqui. The lodge and surrounding areas will provide some of the most amazing opportunities for exotic wildlife and nature photography. This will be a small group of only 6 photographers so everyone will get plenty of great opportunity to capture some remarkable images. I will be right there to help you with anything you need. During the daylight hours we will have many opportunities to photograph a wide variety of wild animals, birds, mammal, reptile and amphibian species from land and boat rides down the Sarapiqui river. Night time we will have a few classroom sessions and we will be taking a few trips near by.
