You won’t find a more biodiverse place on the Earth than the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. This is a very special workshop designed for just ten participants with two instructors plus local guides. My good friend, the amazing wildlife photographer David Archer has explored and photographed the Osa extensively. He and I will be co-leading this all inclusive workshop teaching wildlife, macro, flash and landscape techniques while photographing throughout this incredible location. We will stay at the luxurious Crocodile Bay Resort and photograph primates, birds, reptiles and amphibians from boats, cars and foot.

 

All lodging, food, and transportation aside from your airfare into and out of San Juan and drinks are included.
