Pura Vida Costa Rica Photo Tour with Scott Setterberg

April 7 - April 12

Costa Rica is an incredibly diverse country and this all-inclusive photography tour features Costa Rica’s Gold Coast and inland regions in the province of Guanacaste, as well as the lush rainforests of the northern region. We explore three amazing national parks and photograph beautiful beaches, colorful jungle rivers and streams, stunning Costa Rica waterfalls, glassy lakes, breathtaking tropical sunsets, and a splash of Costa Rica wildlife.

With only 4 spots available, you will improve your photo skills with personalized, professional photography instruction, and enhance your digital workflow and editing skills with one-on-one Lightroom instruction.  You will use various exposure techniques and filters and learn ways to improve your compositions. You will do some focus stacking, Intentional Camera Movement (ICM), HDR processing, and image reviews, as well. You will also rest well in award-winning hotels, enjoy delicious gourmet cuisine, and travel comfortably in private transportation.

I have lived in and explored Costa Rica extensively for the last 11 years and know the country and locations extremely well. Joining us is my good friend and professional Costa Rican nature guide who is licensed with the Costa Rica Institute of Tourism. He speaks perfect English, and you will learn about Costa Rica’s biodiversity, ecosystems, flora and fauna, and history of the country from him.

Photographers of all skill levels are welcome. The only requirement is a basic understanding of your DSLR, SLR, or mirrorless camera.
