Costa Rica Wild

Explore and photograph the unique natural beauty of northern Costa Rica’s Alajuela and Guanacaste provinces

Explore and photograph some of the most beautiful natural wonders of Costa Rica’s Alajuela and Guanacaste provinces in the company of professional photographer Wayde Carroll and expert Costa Rican guide, Marco Fallas.

The food, the artists, and the historical architecture of the Bajo del Toro and Sarchi region offer unique cultural and street photography opportunities. The lively, colorful eco-gardens in Sarapiqui are enough to make any photographer lose track of time and want to stay and shoot more. The winding river valleys of Boca Tapada, Caño Negro, and Rio Celeste provide truly unique wildlife opportunities where we’ll have the chance to practice a number of camera and lighting techniques to make our images equally unique and captivating.

Each day will be filled with some combination of photography excursions, technique building workshops, hands-on guidance, assignments and reviews, as well as Marco’s home-grown insights into each area. You’ll get to work on perfecting an arsenal of travel photography skills including; landscape, stop-action, long-exposure, night, macro, portraits, fill-flash, and off-camera flash. Some evenings will be dedicated to sharing photos and post-processing so bring your laptop or tablet!

We have a number of multi-night stays in one location so if you just want to take a break and spend some time relaxing by the pool or on your porch, you’ll have that option as well.
