I’m teaming up again with Eat the Peach Travel to offer a 9-day wildlife photography workshop in Costa Rica April 27 – May 5, 2019.

We will cover the basics of wildlife photography, ethics, conservation, learning your subject, knowing your equipment, how to capture birds in flight, patience, proper clothing, safety, photo editing and much, much more.

All the pictures in this post are from my last trip to Costa Rica

We will spend time in one of the bird-watching capitals of the world the San Geraldo De Dota Cloud Forest. We will also explore the still-active Irazu volcano and finally the famed wild Osa Peninsula.

As with my street photography workshops in Cuba, we limit the number of people on the trip in order to form a tight group and make sure that each person gets as much individual attention as possible. On this wildlife photography workshop in Costa Rica there are only 7 spaces. SO BOOK NOW!
